You may have to take a look at the frost pattern on the Freezer Evaporator 

to see if it's air-clogged ...

yes ...

If the Fan can't blow air through it, it can't cool the Fridge ..

all apears to be normal here. The door to the duct assembly appears to be stuck closed. I was able to open the door with very little force. What would cause this - do i need to replace the duct assembly or could this be electronic? thanks again for the help.

I can't find the service manual for that model, but it may be similar to another model.

It looks like there may be a "Test Switch" on the Main Board, between the small copper coil and the 40 pin chip.

Pressing it once may open the Damper.

Pressing it twice may close the Damper.

Post the SERIAL NUMBER.

This will be a *huge* help to identify fault (and at least help rule-out other possible causes).

there is a test button located on the circuit board. im not sure in what order it tests each funtion, but it does appear to force it to perform each funtion. can you tell me which one I should be looking for. After you press the button, it will beep so many time and repeat this pattern 3 times. And again thanks for the help

Replace the MAIN BOARD.

On the LG refrigerator model: LSC27910TT with serial numbers ranging from:

804MR--through--806MR

The original MAIN BOARD p/n: 6871JB1410M should be replaced with a new

MAIN BOARD p/n: 6871JB1410N.

In addition---both TEMPERATURE SENSORS (THERMISTORS) should be "pulled" from their original installed position and attached to the sensor cover. An adjustment of about 1/4 inch. This allows the TEMPERATURE SENSORS (one each for the refrig & freezer compartments) to be more accurate in measuring temperature.

Some TEMPERATURE SENSORS were too far imbedded within the insulation material used for the entire refrigerator box/cabinet during manufacturing.

Simply snapping the sensor cage-like covers off---and gently pulling the TEMPERATURE SENSORS out from the cured foam-type insulation will allow for more accurate temperature feedback to the MAIN BOARD (also revised).
