    Default Refrigerator help please....

    Hey guys, need a little help.

    Found out today as I went to cook dinner that our fridge has stopped doing it's job. While the inside is still cool, it is no longer keeping things cold, and the freezer section is the same. All of our food has dethawed.

    I figured maybe the coils were clogged, and so I pulled out the fridge and cleaned the coils. No change, and this is about where my knowledge ends when it comes to major appliances.

    I found out that the fridge has a control board with a self diagnostic function. It returned an error code of 22 when I pressed the button. When I whip out the google-fu, it says that the issue is a compressor start relay fault. Checked out a couple videos, and seems like an easy to replace part. But now, I am trying to figure out what part I need, and I am finding conflicting part numbers, and I don't know which is which, and where in Calgary can I go to get a replacement relay?

    It is an LG fridge, model number LMX25984ST /02
    from what I can tell, the LG part number for the relay is EBG62325702

    Is anyone able to figure out if Part #: 6749C-0014E is the same thing? And where is the best place for me to get this locally? Or am I better off just finding a repair guy?

    There is an appliance part store inside trail appliances that stocks a lot of these types of parts. I’d give them a call first thing tomorrow

    I have been able to get parts for my washer and dryer from Reliable Parts, so I suspect they may also carry parts for refrigerators. There are a few in the city, but there is one inside the Trail Appliances at Deerfoot Meadows.

    Maybe their website can give you information on inventory or nearest location to you?

    Edit: Looks like Sabad66 gave you the same recommendation.

    Reliable parts isn't too reliable for LG parts. They generally only have cosmetic parts, racks, drawers etc.
    I'd check with Atlas Appliances for LG.
    That said, nobody had the start relay (really just a PTC) for my LG Fridge. I wound up using a close enough Westinghouse part from Amre.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Maybe mate your fridge with RX_EVOLV's fridge to get one with a working pilot light.

    well, the code 22 I thought I had discovered, wasn't a code at all. I think I just put the fridge into test mode 2... So I am pretty sure that is a dead end. I am so lost when it comes to this shit.

    Got a guy coming this morning to come fix it up hopefully.

    Sounds like fridges and appliances etc. will need an OBDII-type port pretty soon.

    The LG’s linear compressors break. Was a huge class action action about this in the states.

    Awesome tech, the fridges are super quiet. But the compressors do go eventually unfortunately.

    I replace Refrig compressors for a living and I wouldn’t even do my own at home. Buy a new fridge, just not LG or Samsung.
