Ongoing problem of ice maker fan making noise and stopping and giving error code 1F. Is there a permanent fix from Kenmore or LG?? The tech said that due to the ice maker being shut off the unit is calling for more cooling and causing the fan to ice up. When it defrosts it's not enough to melt the buildup in the fan housing. They just remove the ice and put it back together. Losing much $$ for defrosted food, not covered unless we buy the extended warranty, and having a tech come by every 2 mos. = not fun! Model # is 795.79754.904. Is there an LG equivalent to this model so that I can contact them, when I give LG the Kenmore model # they give me the Sears Kenmore tech line #.

What do you mean by some? I would assume that it would only work if they changed something on the fan assy. Some have said that changing the main board and the fan fixed the problem, I was hoping that LG would put out a fix......From what I read it's an old problem, not much info on my model but on others it seems pretty common. For Sears to change anything (they want me to pay for the parts) they have to check their Tech line and see what they say. When he called they said that it was caused by an air leak or leaving the door open or maybe overfilling the freezer. Is there an LG model that is identical to the Kenmore, maybe I could get more support help if I have an LG model # ?
