Customer Question
I have an Lg...

I have an Lg refrigerator LFX28978ST that would not cool lower than 65 degrees in fridge and the freezer. An LG certified tech came out and said I needed a new main control board. I installed a new control board. It did not throw an error code for maybe 15 minutes. When I noticed the temperature dropped 1 degree it showed an FS code again and is right back where we started. Any suggestions?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your LG is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

7 Years ...LFX28978ST

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes
