What is the model number of the refrigerator? Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.
Model LRTG 1811W
The refridgerator is turned all the way to the coldest setting (8). The freezer is also on the coldest setting (3). The freezer is working fine. The refridgerator compartment is only getting down to about 54 degrees.
I have cleaned the condensor coils, defrosted the freezer, thawed and cleared the drain tube, and verified that the condensor is on and the freezer fan is working. The fridge is running and the door seal is good. Also, the light does go off when the door is shut. I can't figure out why the freezer is working and the fridge is staying warm. Please let me know it there is any other information you need.
I forgot to put the model no. It's a LG Model LRTG1811W.
I probably defrosted it about 3hrs. ago. It really wasn't that frosted up to begin with though. I just did it basically to try and thaw that drain tube which was frozen up. I did eventually get that open. I have a thermostat in the fridge and every now and then I will check it and it's holding steady at 50 degrees, and it's turned all the way up to the coldest setting.
Ok, the frost was in the normal range, closer to excessive but still normal. I first noticed a problem with the freezer about a week ago. It's frost free, and it's never frosted up before. That is until about a week ago, everything had a light layer of frost on it. I knew something was wrong then. About a day or two later, I noticed my milk was not as cold and tasted funny, now I'm thinking "freakin great" right before the holidays.
The fridge is a 18cu.ft. LG. top freezer, dial controls. It's probably 5 to 7 years old. I bought this house in 2005 and the fridge was with it and it appeared new, owners manual, warranty sheet and all. A senior lady lived here and I don't think she ever used the fridge if it wasn't brand new.
Even now, there appears to be a very, very thin layer of frost in the freezer and the only thing I have in there now is ice trays.
Also, I took the lower back off and the condensor was running, the coils are underneath the fridge.
Good news, everything went back to norman. Thanks so much for the advice. Its now down to 30 degrees so i have to turn it down but its working.
Thanks agian!! Im leaving feedback for you now.
