LG Refrigerator LSC27910SW - no power, no lights - EASY FIX
Posted 07 March 2012 - 08:48 PM
Should you have an LG refrigerator and one day it has no power, you can do these easy steps to repair it.
1) check the main break, so you know you have power to the outlet
2) check the outlet, make sure you have power to the outlet for the refrigerator
3) If 1&2 check out ok, unplug the refrigerator and access the main circuit breaker on the top of the refrigerator
4) There are two small round glass fuses in the circuit. The main power is a simple 250volt / 15amp fast breaker fuse available at most hardware stores. Cost - is around $2.35.
Save yourself the repair call and check that first!
Best of luck homeowners, appliance manufactures are making their products cheaper, cheaper and cheaper.....

This statement drives me crazy---because of *where* some place blame.
True---at times manufacturers build a lemon product---that's to be expected.
Most times---manufacturers---when they are not burdened by state and/or federal regulations---produce reliable products that the consumer expects (and demands) for their hard-earned money.
Thank (or berate) the United States Government---specifically the Department of Energy (DOE) and the enviro-nazis.
All of that digital-technology required to make appliances super-hyper-efficient comes at the "cost" of durability/reliability.
At or about 2010---the DOE mandated that all top loading washers (with an agitator) use *significantly* less water.
Consumers are very upset that soiled laundry is not getting clean.
Is that the manufacturers fault?
More importantly---will *you* remember this 5 years from now?
Or will this be posted on some blog/forum in the year 2017...
<<<appliance manufactures are making their products cheaper, cheaper and cheaper.....>>>
L-O-N-G cycle times
Suds error message
Slow spin speeds
Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)
And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.
The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:
HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load
HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon
HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon
Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.
Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

if LG wanted to make it cheaper ...
... appliance manufactures are making their products cheaper, cheaper and cheaper.....
they wouldn't have used Fuses in the circuit,
they would just let the parts on the Circuit Board burn-up

And let us conclude this sermon with a quote from the Samurai Scriptures:
There are no good dishwashers today. They are all gone aside, they are altogether become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Yea verily all doth sucketh and fall short of the glory of the Samurai.
– Psamurai Psalms 14:3 (Shogun Tanaka Version)
Right about now you’re nodding smugly to yourself and saying, “Yeah, uh huh, planned obsolescence so the manufacturers can rip us off and line their pockets.” You wanna know the real reason all dishwashers today suck? Go look in the mirror. While you were out clamoring for a new gubmint program to wipe your kid’s bottom or some other inane activity that government has no business getting involved with, the felons in the District of Criminals passed yet another “mandate” requiring that all dishwashers comply with their Energy Star requirements. As if we can just pass a law and, walla!, all our energy problems will be solved. What they’re really saying is that you’re too stupid to be trusted with even having a choice about what type of dishwasher you want: a robust, long-lasting energy hog like yo momma used to have or a limp-wristed bedwetter that uses less energy but that you’ll be fixing or replacing every two to four years. How much energy does that save?
