Original complaint ice build up. Found defrost drain clogged with ice. Chipped ice out and used hair dryer to melt ice at drain. Also used small screwdriver in drain until water drained. Saw water in drain tray at bottom rear of fridge.

All good so far.

Reinstalled rear cover and plugged in fan. Closed freezer door switch, no fan. checked wiring, looks ok. still no fan. opened reefer door, control has last three lites lit, but not first two (1-5) Also control will not respond to commands (cant change setting) I had the doors open a long time and I thought I heard a beep at one point. 

Could I have damaged something while probe-ing drain?

Any help much appreciated.

I'm not an LG master, but it may be in some special protection mode...

Close the Doors and wait a few hours ..

(till the LG master logs on) :wink:

If the unit is plugged in and you unplugged/ replaced  evaporator motor, It appears the electronics do not recognize the  motor being plugged in....................................Unplug the refer for about 5 minutes.........keep the doors closed.......plug unit in.................Fan should start................

Thank you so much for your help.

Unplugged unit for 5min., plugged back in and all went back to normal.

I guess you just need to be smarter than the machine. :wacko:

You guys saved me, AGAIN!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
