Water leaked under my control panel cover Do I need to replace the entire control panel or is there a cover I can order?


2 Bert August 27, 2018 at 5:17 am

I got a lrsc26925TT, GR-L267BV(T)RA or PA display unit. Itis freezing everything o the refrigerator side. No matter what I set the temperature at. How do you run a self diagnosis? No codes are showing. Other sites say to pull codes press the express freezing and freezer temperature button at the same time and hold. All that does is turn of lights on the display, until the the door is open(power saver mode). Another site (an LG) says to press the test button. I read it backwards and forwards. No where does it say where this button is? I think it’s a thermocouple. I can’t find any good wire diagrams that i can expand and read. Finding the voltage and ohms at different temperature was easy. Removing the display to test? Where do I find how to do that? I don’t want to damage it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Is there any way to see the actual temperature of the fridge and freezer on the LFX25974ST?


5 Dave Mintzer October 26, 2017 at 1:15 pm

The control panel on LG refrigerator LSC27910ST01 has only the freezer lights with all bars lighted. no other control works. This model does not display digital numbers and only has pictures. Is this an error code of some sort? Is there a fix or reset? I already ordered and replaced the display board. It was fine for half a day and then the new board also went to this freezer bar display like the other board so something is obviously triggering this display.

I am on my second display panel due to the plastic peeling off. I removed the whole display panel and ice/water unit. It pops out. but not easily. Once out the display screws can be removed.
