Would someone post the LG Service Bulletin here, or if that is not possible,

summarize the contents?  Thanks!   Bob

Would making custom test leads from the wiring harness be of use?

From the masthead:  "Workshops in the art and science of appliance repair"


Speaking as a consumer with an interest in things mechanical and electronic and not in the appliance repair business, I

would say that anything that draws aside the curtain of mystery as to the theory and operation of control devices would

be welcome to someone that wants a deeper understanding of how these are designed and function. ( Or fail)


That being said, Those that are in the business of diagnosing and repair are dealing with customers that want their

appliance fixed *now* and are working with information and parts systems that allow them to make service calls

and operate profitably and without worries about legal liability.


I have seen postings here that indicate that some techs would make a repair if it cured a common problem with  a board

that they see on a frequent basis, and save their customer significant money.


Add to that the growing problem of control boards no longer available (NLA) from the manufactures: imagine you are

the owner of an 8 year old $10K refrigerator that has a failed part that is NLA.


So the fun part for us geeks is to figure out what caused the failure in the first place: is it because for reasons of cost

it is being asked to operate too close to it's maximum limits, electrical or thermal, or was it dragged into failure by

something else.


The Samurai has the last word, of course, but as for me, I say bring it on!

Please let us know what you find there - the status of the unit ( up/down) what you have to do to get it back into operation and what could be happening after you leave.  The operation instructions do say that starting from the down position push the button down for a few seconds to raise the unit and this slight delay is to prevent inadvertent rising during cleaning.  Maybe a hesitant push on the button is causing the problem.  Have you watched the owner operate it?  Bob
