kenmore french door style, 795.77302600 refrigerator
« on: June 09, 2014, 01:34:38 PM »
What is deal on these frigs, consumer reviews are bad. Has Lg. corrected the problem with the interior lights staying on. I do a lot of restoration, along with service calls. The one I have now I replaced cold control board #6871jb1374a. Is the light problem tied in with the temp. control Bd.? Unit is 2007 , I've not had the opportunity to work on lg. very much in our area. Also had to replace water inlet valve, wasn't making ice. Had running for three days all seems well as of now. Thought there be a tech out there that has had a lot of exp. battling this style frig. I would be very grateful for any feed back on this Model frig. what has been your exp. with Lg. Frig,

I have found LG ref to be very good units. All brands have issues and we get to see them because we are who people contact. I do warranty work for several brands and see no more issues between them and LG. That said I prefer GE sealed systems to all new units out there right now.

Yes I agree, except this model has been known to start  fires from 60 watt bulbs staying on after door is shut, or to melt the bulb housing. Since the board temp. display goes out also when door is shut, I would say the original factory board was poor design, shorting and not turning off light, also board would not respond to temp. adjustment. I'm sure LG has revised the board, Some body robbed the tech sheet, I'm confident this will not happened again. I also put two new 40 watt bulbs in, not the 60w max it calls for. Thanks for you reply, and yes now days brands all have their quirks., like some self clean ovens were blamed for house fires. Any thing that has the potential to cause house fire needs to be taken very serious. 8)
