LG Refrigerator Doesn’t Cool Enough.

I don’t repair LG refrigerators. I wrote this page to collect information about the most common problem with the LG refrigerator – the compressor dysfunction. Many people call me with the same concern, and I refer them to the LG customer service.

How To Recognise This Dysfunction?

Usually, the temperature will be around -5°C in the freezer and around +10-15°C in the fresh food compartment. Unfortunately, it is a common problem related to the LG compressor issue. If you open the lower panel at the back of the fridge and touch the compressor, you can feel it run and vibrate but it is boiling hot. So you can’t keep your hand on it. This description of a faulty compressor is typical for the LG refrigerator. 

I don’t know why, but if you try to find information about these problems on the Internet, you will see a lot of useless recommendations. The LG site – for example. They recommend that you start by cleaning the condenser and tilting the refrigerator to get the doors closed completely. But it rarely helps. 

What to do if your LG refrigerator is not cooling?

The first stepcontact LG customer service, give them your information and book an appointment.

In most cases, you need a compressor replacement. First of all, this compressor is only available from the LG company service. From my information, their repair service is not bad, and their cost for a compressor replacement is affordable. I wouldn’t recommend making appointments with any other appliance repair companies. They can’t help you, and you will waste your money and time on diagnosing this well-known problem.  

To be clear, there are almost no technicians who provide compressor replacement in Ottawa. Moreover, if you find one, the price for this type of repair will be much higher than from the LG company.

I can’t say that the LG refrigerator is bad. The LG company usually gives a ten-year warranty for their compressors. This fridge usually has no problems other than the compressor issue, and it usually comes in refrigerators that are older than ten years. The LG refrigerator has a good energy-saving rate and performance and works quietly. 

I hope that this information was useful for understanding why the LG refrigerator doesn’t cool enough and what to do when it happens.
