In Topic: LG Fridge LFC22740ST Not Cooling

The main PCB is failing to start the compressor.  This is verified by the fact that you have to cycle power to get the compressor to run.  When you cycle power, it initiates a main PCB self-test, which includes starting the compressor.  Beyond the self test, it's not starting the compressor.   Go ahead and replace the main PCB:  http://www.repaircli...mber=LFC22740ST




Got it. Thanks. Replacing the board seems like a basic plug and play job. Any concerns when doing this? 


Since the tech's visit, the fridge has continued to operate like normal. He must have a magic touch.

I am having a similar issue on a lg made kenmore.. ... one thing to check is your pcb cover. If it is plastic, there is a possibility of interference with the board. see
The cover was on back order and I will know if it fixes the problem soon


Thanks, but mine has a metal cover. 


Have there been any fault codes displayed, er ff or anything else?


I have not seen any fault codes.
