Are you having problems with your LG refrigerator not cooling? This can be a major problem, especially during the summer months. If your refrigerator is not getting cold, then your food may spoil and you could end up losing money. We will discuss some of the reasons why your LG refrigerator may not be cooling properly, as well as some solutions that you can try. We will also provide some tips on how to prevent this from happening in the future.
How to Deal With an LG Refrigerator Not Cooling
If you find your LG Refrigerator not cooling there’s no time to lose! Let’s go over the possible reasons now.
1. Condenser Coils Are Dirty
One of the most common reasons an LG refrigerator stops cooling is because the condenser coils are dirty. The coils are located on the back of the fridge and they help to release heat. If they are covered in dust or dirt, they will not be able to function properly.
To clean the coils, first, you should unplug the refrigerator and then vacuum the coils with a brush attachment. You should do this at least once a year to keep your fridge running smoothly.
2. The Door Isn’t Closing Fully
Another common reason for your LG Refrigerator not cooling is because the door has been left open. This seems like it would be an obvious one, but it’s actually very easy to miss that the door is still slightly open. If you find that the door has been left open, simply close it and wait a few minutes to see if the fridge starts cooling again. Also, check to make sure that there’s nothing blocking the door from closing fully.
3. The Temperature Is Not Set Properly
If the temperature inside your fridge is not set properly, then it will not be able to cool properly. The ideal temperature for a refrigerator is between 35-38 degrees Fahrenheit. You can adjust the temperature by turning the knob on the fridge. If you are not sure what temperature to set it at, you can always consult your owner’s manual.
4. There is a Problem With the Compressor
If none of the above solutions work, then there may be a problem with the compressor. The compressor is responsible for pumping refrigerant through the coils. If it is not working properly, then the fridge will not be able to cool properly. This is a more serious problem and you will need to call a technician to take a look at it.
5. Refrigerator Is Too Full
Another potential problem causing your LG refrigerator not to cool is that your fridge is too full. If there is not enough space for the cold air to circulate, then the fridge will not be able to cool properly. Try to keep your fridge under 3/4-full so that the air can circulate properly.
These are just some of the possible reasons why your LG refrigerator may not be cooling properly. Hopefully, these solutions help to keep your food from spoiling. If you are still having problems, we recommend that you call a technician to take a look at it.
