I was told the mother board went out. Took a few months to finally get one myself after repairman didn't come through. It turned out not to be the motherboard that sears repairman tested it for and said that's what it needed. I found Parts select after going round and round with sears parts refusing to accept return. There prices were better, as well as shipping and it came so quick i thought it was over night. The controller assembly was not the problem so we have it for a spare now. It was the freezer fan but even after installing it nothing would work is why we ordered the controller assembly. after 2 days and about 7 hours of checking, taking apart, rechecking assembling by my determined electrician it turned out to be a loose wire. LOL hope this helps someone. I'm just glad to have my fridge again! Blessings!!!

I removed the cover from the rear of the unit, with a screwdriver. Then with a adjustable wrench unscrewed the top nut of the water valve.I then removed the screw holding the valve to the wall of the fridge. Turned the valve upside down and removed the line going up to the ice maker. No tools needed here as it is a quick connect fitting.Use reverse order to install valve.I am 65 years old and if I can do this anyone can. Good luck from TX.

Pulled the fridge out of its space. Removed a metal shield which covered the bottom 12" of the fridge with a Philips head screw driver. The water valve is on your right. turned off the water to the supply line. Removed the supply line using an adjustable wrench. Removed the water line gong from the pump into the fridge. It is held on with a "C" clip which can be pulled off with needle-nose pliers. Removed the old pump, held with one Philips head screw. Then installed the new pump, reconnected the lines, replaced the metal shield and turned the water back on. Vacuumed the fridge and its space before cleaning up. The ice-maker now works perfectly.

I called LG and followed the instructions given over the phone. The instructions couldn't have been simpler. Disconnect the appliance for several hours and then connect again. I disconnected the appliance overnight, cleaned out the freezer, and reconnected it. Problem solved. Did not need to call a repairman and did not use the clips.

Broken cam on gasket holder strip on left door

  • Customer: Leonard from San Diego CA

There is a part called a "cam" on my 23cuft french door refrigerator. It is at the top of both doors and works to keep the closed door from popping open when slamming shut the opposite door. Twice in 2 years this cam has broken off of the long plastic strip which is the gasket holder. Both times on the right door. The repair is easy, but you have to be careful not to break the plastic pieces. First, you have to remove the trim piece covering the gasket strip (233D in the diagram). It pulls out only one way -- toward the SIDE of the door (rather than inwards towards the fridge). Next, you have to remove the entire gasket around the door; it pulls out very easily. Third, there are 2 plastic hinges which snap into the door frame; to remove it use a screwdriver and gently pry it to the side of the door (rather than towards the center of the fridge or away from it). Frankly, that's the hardest part - taking it all apart without breaking the trim piece. When I first had it repaired under warranty, the repairman brought an extra trim piece (233D) in case he broke it when he removed it. But it simply snaps in place so you should be okay if you are careful when prying it out.

I popped the old switch out of place and then disconnected the wire harness from the switch with a pair of needle nose pliers. I then inserted the harness into the new switch and popped the switch into place. Super easy and fast.

After noting frost in freezer Right rail started to jam. Noted freezer door was closing crooked. Rail replacement resolved issue. It had been frosting up for some time so Rail must have been broken for a while. Check door seals they were not closing flush.

Used a screwdriver to remove covers. Used a blow dryer to defrost coil in freezer. Cut zip tie and removed old controller assembly. Inserted new controller assembly and secured with zip tie. It took 24 hours for the fridge to cool completely. Now it works fine.

Tape off the light button so door alarm does not go off. Take off the clear light shield and remove the light bulbs. Be careful, bulbs may still be HOT!! With Phillips head screw driver unscrew the light plate assy. Drop it down in a comfortable position. Disconnect the connector, unscrew the thermal sensor and remove light assy. Install new light assy into light plate assy. There is no thermal senor in the new assy. Snap light plate assy back into place and install the two screws previously taken out. Install bulbs and clear cover. Remove tape from light door switches and you are done. Lights should go on and off when door buttons are pushed in and out.

purchased a new switch. The old switch just needed to be lightly pried out with a screw driver, then it was simple to unplug the old, and plug in the new. Voila! Light !
