So I got this fridge off of a guy who sells used appliances. This one was new but blemished. He said it was a floor demonstrator and the only real blemishes are a small dent in the top and very low on the left side. Since I didn't get it from an LG dealer I doubt I have any warranty. I got the fridge July 24th and it has worked perfectly until last evening when my SO noticed her ice cream wasn't really solid. I got ice out of it last evening and didn't notice anything but this morning the ice was melting so I put a thermometer in the freezer and it was over 25 degrees. I also noticed a lot of frost and wetness on everything. I unplugged the unit and left it off for a few minutes before reconnecting it. I went off to work and when I returned this afternoon the freezer was down to 0 and both ice makers had made ice. Well I opened it a bit ago and the thermometer had climbed to 15. I listened to the case and there were no motor noises with the doors closed and no heat from the compressor area. I unplugged it again for a few minutes and after a bit the compressor and fans started up, soon it was producing heat from the compressor area. However the freezer temperature continued to climb into the 20s. I moved all of the meat and such to our deep freeze. The freezer is now down to 16 degrees and dropping. I'm baffled and starting to suspect a thermostat, thermocouple or control board. Could it maybe be going to a defrost cycle and sticking there. Hopefully somebody here can help.
