  • Check the air return on the bottom left wall of the refrigerator side. Check for cold air flow at the top of the refrigerator when the compressor is running. If you feel no air flow, open the freezer door and see if you detect significantly more air flow after opening the freezer door. This could indicate a return air flow restriction and make sure that there no blocking of air vent at the top of refrigerator section that supplies the cold air from the freezer.
  • \015\012
  • Check the door seal gasket on the refrigerator for leaks.If the vents and air flow paths in the refrigerator are proper, then check the back wall of the freezer for excessive frost. A defrost system problem could be preventing the refrigerator from cooling properly.
  • \015\012
  • If you do see excessive frost on the evaporator in the freezer, you may be able to restore propercooling in the refrigerator by storing your food in an ice chest and then shutting off the refrigerator/freezer and letting the unit completely defrost for about 24 hours.
  • \015\012
  • Leave the doors open for air circulation. After the frost on the evaporator has defrosted, plug the unit back in and see if the refrigerator and freezer will cool properly.If there is still same problem then you need to replace evaporator fan.

Hope this helps.

Our LG bottom freezer leaks a lot of water- some suggestions were to switch off the refrigerator, let all melt- we did that but the problem returned. We also turned off the ice maker, but no luck. One suggestion was to check the defrost sensor and drain for blockages, but I don't know how to do that or where that is located. Any help will be most appreciated.
