    Only 2 of the pins will have resistance reading. The wires need to connect to those pins. Usually just rotate connector counter clockwise from original position about 1/3 of a turn. If your new compressor came a black wire cover it is the newer style pinout.

    Fyi I don't have access to service manules as others do. I probably need to just pay for the other membership to gain that Intel.

    I had bottle on scale as well. Only put abount an ounce before plugging in. But it never started. Pressure was at .7 on low side and never moved. Compressor never even tried. With the trouble I've had with this unit I can see why everyone I talk to walk the other way. But as far as the pin point it is opposite of old compressor. Part # tca36511310.

    Considering what you have done and if I'm reading correctly - the compressor is not running? Did you cut open the old dryer to inspect? If possible please cut open to check. If clean beads you are good the go. If black powder you'll have to blow out high and low side with nitrogen. If burnt oil is in dryer you'll need to flush system. Also when you charge system do a measured charge. Amp draw on a inverter compressor is almost meaningless. Was the new compressor the newer style with different pinout?

    Thank you! I'm very new to LG. If you or any one could run over the steps with me on the compressor change out procedure or have had experience with issues after changing the compressor... I could use some guildence. I'll start from the beginning.... Compressor running. Not cooling in either compartment. Tapped system and low side pressures around 50. From what I was tought that indicated a bad compressor. So I checked resistance at compressor and on had one reading. Again, was tought that it's a bad compressor. So I evacuated system, replaced compressor, filter dryer, and vacuumed down system. Plugged in unit and lights work, fans work, and board is functioning. But....still no compressor.! Was trying to charge using amp draw but did not get any and my pressure on low side just stayed still. Still no action from Compressor. What am I over looking? Anyone that has had this experience or just has the experience I could use some help! Thank you for your time.
  10. LFCS31626S S/N 509KRGG1xxxx fridge and freezer stopped cooling, already happened three times. lots of food lost. I will never purchase an LG product again the evaporator (the thingy behind the back cover, with lots of coils and fins, which is responsible for transferring the "coldness" from the compressed gas to the surrounding air inside the fridge/freezer) ices up. the evaporator defrost heater is working, yet it does not defrost all the ice, allowing for lots of ice buildup. apparently LG has issue controlling the defrost cycle. but the bottom line is that when ice builds up on the evaporator fins, no cooling can be done and the food spoils. to fix the issue you have to take the entire fridge (shelves, rails, drawers) and freezer (door, drawers, rails, ice maker) apart to gain access to the back covers, remove the back covers and manually defrost using a hair drier to remove all the ice build up. I am now an expert in doing this, and it "only" takes about half a day. but all the food is already spoiled since there is no warning that the fridge and/or freezer stopped working :-( apparently this is a common issue with LG refrigerators, not only this specific model. other people also have issues with the drain tube freezing up (the drain tube is supposed to drain the water which the evaporator defrost heater thaws. this cause water to overflow and build at bottom of fridge and/or freezer and leak onto the floor, damaging the floor. some people jury rigged an copper wire extension from the defrost heater into the drain hole to transfer heat from the heater into the drain hole. LG is aware of these issues and has done nothing to address them. three recommendations for LG: 1- engineer a better way to detect that there is ice building up and/or make sure that the defrosting cycle is long and/or frequent enough to defrost the evaporator coils and fins 2- have an ALARM whenever the temp inside the fridge and/or the freezer is above the set temperature, to warn against spoiling food. 3- LG should engineer something to ensure that the drain holed does not ice up. (a heat transfer copper wire as above or a separate heating element around the drain tube) even if they do listen, I will never purchase an LG product again -avi

    Two ways. First is to plug in unit wait about 6 to 9 sec and unplug. Like to have my hand on 3 way valve to feel it vibrate. Second method is to put into first step of diagnostic mode.

    i just can't believe they would cut the hot water like that . full hot water is one of the signature speed queen features , i'm going to check the equivalent machine in home laundry ( tc5000 ) and see if it does like yours. if so i will have to quit telling my customers that it is a full hot fill 😞

    To evacuate system with twin cooling, what procedure would be performed to open and access both evaps?

    kitchenaid KSCS23ftSS02 compressor will not start

    Appliance manufactures are pretty much know for Black Boxing there boards - if you want to do board level repair you have to know what your doing and figure it out on your own as far as the manufactures are concerned. I was really surprised at the detail for each electronic circuit on the boards in Samsung? and/or LG? products in their service manuals.

    The manual for this is already in the Downloads section. You just have to use a truncated search term, like so: MAH6500*

    I think that might be a part number, not the actual model number. It's not pulling up anything at GSPN.

  25. Just an FYI on an old post to future users: On Samsung bulletin ASC20150701001 dated 7/1/2015 on RF32FMQDBSR units produced before June 2014 . This refrigerator contains 2 complete sealed systems with 2 compressors, one for the freezer and variable room and a separate one for the fresh food section. The Fresh Food sealed system and compressor use the refrigerant R600a. If the problem is with the sealed system in the FF section, the unit is non-repairable. If the R600a system (identified by red paint on the tubing) is leaking or the compressor has failed, do not attempt to repair. Contact Samsung Tech Support from the home for further instruction. Beginning with June, 2014 production, R600a is no longer used in any Samsung Refrigerator sold in the USA.
