Common solutions for: LG Refrigerator freezer is cold but refrigerator is warm

01 - The Evaporator Coils are Frosted Over
The defrost heater assembly turns on a few times throughout the day to melt away any frost that may have accumulated on the evaporator coils. If the defrost heater assembly is defective, frost will continue to accumulate on the evaporator coils, and the coils will become plugged with frost. If the evaporator coils are frosted over, the airflow through the coils will be restricted, causing the refrigerator not to cool. Check the evaporator coils to determine if they are frosted over. If the evaporator coils are frosted over, test each component of the defrost system.
02 - LG Refrigerator Evaporator Fan Motor
The evaporator fan motor draws cold air over the evaporator coils and circulates it throughout the freezer. If the evaporator fan is not working, the freezer or refrigerator will not cool adequately. To determine if the evaporator fan motor is defective, try turning the fan blade by hand. If the fan blade does not turn freely, replace the fan motor. Additionally, if the motor is unusually noisy, replace it. Finally, if the motor does not run at all, use a multimeter to test the motor windings fo...r continuity. If the windings do not have continuity, replace the evaporator fan motor..

03 - Door not closing all the way
If a door is slightly open, the refrigerator may not cool properly. The door bin may be hitting the shelf causing the door to stay slightly open. Food Items in the door bins and shelves can also keep the door from closing. Make sure the shelves and door bins are in the proper locations. Avoid overloading the door bins and shelves.
04 - LG Refrigerator Damper Control Assembly
The air damper control opens and closes to let the proper amount of cold air into the refrigerator compartment. If the damper does not open properly, it won’t let enough cold air into the refrigerator. Check the damper control to determine if it is broken or stuck closed.

05 - LG Refrigerator Thermistor
The thermistor monitors the refrigerator temperature and sends the temperature reading to the control board. The control board then regulates power to the compressor and evaporator fan based on the thermistor readings. If the thermistor is defective, the compressor and evaporator fan may not run when necessary, or may run too frequently. To determine if the thermistor is defective, test it with a multimeter. The thermistor resistance should change in conjunction with the refrigerator temperature.... If the thermistor resistance does not change, or the thermistor does not have continuity, replace the thermistor.

06 - LG Refrigerator Defrost Heater Assembly
The defrost heater assembly turns on several times throughout the day to melt away any frost that may have accumulated on the evaporator coils. If the defrost heater assembly is defective, the defrost system will not work, and frost will continue to accumulate on the evaporator coils. This will result in cooling problems where the freezer compartment might appear to be cold but the refrigerator compartment is warm. To determine if the defrost heater is defective, use a multimeter to test it for ...electrical continuity. If the defrost heater does not have continuity, replace it.
