The thermostat in my french door refrigerator isnt working

Customer Question

The thermostat in my french door refrigerator isn't working right. The temperature is always close to freezing. Where is the thermostat located and how can I replace it myself? (I'd rather repair it myself than to hire somebody)

I will need to wait to get the locations for you the site is down, I should have that later today, thanks Bryan

If you can get me the locations and tell me how to get to the temperature sensors than I should be able to change them. I used to be an electrician so this shouldn't be too hard.

I'll check back tomorrow.

Thank you

Bryan,

I'm still trying to figure out where the thermostat (sensor), or sensors, are located and how I can replace them. There don't seem to be any screws in the control area at the top, or the air circulation part in the back so I don't even know how to take these apart to look for the sensors.

Could you possibly get me more information about taking apart the control area, as well as where the sensor, or sensors, are located?

unfortunately LG doesn't give out a lot of info on their products, they do that so you have to call them for service, I cant get the info on the location of the sensors , if you cant find or get to them you may have to call them for service, thats the way they want it . sorry , its just not available, wish I could do more, thanks Bryan
