Hello,

Our LG LFX23965SB french door refrigerator has stopped cooling. The fan does not come on at all and the fridge, freezer, and ice maker are not cold. The light comes on when we open the doors. It is 9 years old. I'm trying to figure out what the problem is, what the repair cost might be, whether I could do the repair myself, or whether we should just buy a new refrigerator. Would anyone be able to help? Is there some diagnostics I could do myself to determine the problem?

Thanks very much in advance!

Hi,

I wasn't able to pull up your model number, some Canadian models are like that here in the USA.

It would be more wise to buy a new refrigerator, say it is a control board problem and you buy a new control board then 9 months later the compressor goes out, control board=$200-$300+compressor=$700-$800 that's already enough money for a new refrigerator.

The average life of refrigerators is only 8-12 years now, the good old days of 20-30 years are long gone unfortunately.
