That was a really common issue, you will need a new rear main control board to fix that issue. LG had used undersized relays for the lighting circuit. They have since corrected the issue by putting in bigger relays on the new board to correct the lights not working or staying stuck on....CLICK HERE PART go behind the unit and there is a small square access cover to remove and then you can change out the plug and play control.

Happy Holidays..All I ask is please use the....FINISH BY RATING link at the top your page to select a 5 STAR RATING before leaving today....this is important for my status on the site plus without a rating I will receive ZERO credit(NO PAY) from the site for assisting you. Also rating now does not close the question out and you can come back anytime for FREE right here to me......Happy Holidays!
