Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries~ let me have a quick look at the specs and I'll be right back ~ firstly can you confirm that YOU actually saw this appliance working? - Ian
OK first things first you need to check that the electrical connections that you disconnected when you removed the door are firstly the correct way around and secondly that the pins are all firmly pushed into the socket on the door top ~ Ian
That is true but it is possible for the pins not to go into their sockets because the mouldings are not very well made ~ secondly if you go on to the top where the main pcb is (below its cover) there is a test button that you can use to reset the electronics should you have disturbed them during the move. Firstly though check that you have continuity through the door top plug as this is the only thing that you have disconnected during its movement.
Unplug the appliance, then you should be able to wiggle the pcb out sometimes they have fitted a cable clamp to the main power input to the board when it goes into the cover.
Hi I am Tech Michael, so your fridge seems completly dead is that correct? Is there any warranty with it? Also have you verified power is actually at the outlet with a lamp or somthing else? Im sorry I pressed the Answer button by mistake no need to rate anything as of yet ;-)
hi, not completely dead no, there is a light that comes on if i press as if i were to press for ice/water so theres power to it. no warranty etc its second hand
also to Ian, ive taken top cover off and found a small button
i dont understand why it was working and simply moving it has caused the main control board to go bad?!?!
so if the main board has gone would the light in the ice bit still work?
hi, yes i pressed it...absolutely nothing happened
thank you Ian, i really do appreciate your help. as i say the only working light is the water/ice dispenser light when u push it as if gettin a glass of water
will give it a go!
am just waiting for the test procedures
Hi Thas fine, Dale is a good tech as well;-)If you dont receive a reply from him on this please rate kindly and I will stick with you until we have this board replaced and the fridge running as it should.
Have a nice Sinday;-)
ok, am happy to wait ...the appliance is not going anywhere just yet
if its ok, ill hang fire on rates incase some one else has any sudden ideas
ok, so if i rate the service it doesnt stop the help? asit says rate to finish and my problem is still not resolved
hopefully the appliance can be fixed or i might just cry lol
to be certain of what?
hi sorry I should have been more clear on this for you. I was talking about if you had an appliance tech check this out and verify this for you, instead of taking my advice as I am a 35 year fridge technician is all I was saying;-)
I sent you the wrong message that one was intended for a different issue with a different customers fridge I apologize for that, sometimes this happens;-)
Have agreat Sunday!
ok, i will speak to the other half about do that later
ok, will keep you updated
Michael, please don't reply to my posts, i have contacted just ask who have advised me to post this owing to the pressure to rate from yourself even after i had said id sooner wait! i am more than happy to await Ians (dale) response and hope he can assist me as he was before. sorry Ian for this situation.I feel bad as Iam new to this page and feel ive been made a fool by Michael.
Thank you Ian, I'm so sorry for this I really did want to leave rating but the subject wouldnt be dropped! Hope all is sorted with your daughters move and again thank you
ok, i shall wait for you no worries
hi, yes i have access and sadly no to either item
hi sending a pic of said board
ok, i shall track down a device tomorrow. its funny because i googled the mainboard for my fridge freezer and its completly different to the one i have, found the exact same one on ebay in germany buy has a diff letter at the end of the board! but its identicle to look at . so am i checking the glass fuse and the bit attached to the brown wire? excuse my simplness
i shall stop and by a multimeter on way home from work at lunch tomorrow .
righty i have a multimeter...think its ok? lol im such a girl..it has a continuity buzzer hope its what i need. board number is ***** one ive found that looks identicle is in germany but has a y not and x at the end of the numbers lol
a. Firstly lets use the beeper and check that you have a link between both ends of the fuse ie on probe on one end of the fuse and another on the other end and you should get a beep?
Then check that you have a beep between both sides of the connector in the door ie probe one side of the connector other probe on other side of connector, you should get a beep at every one?
right no laughing at my stupidity...appliance power off yes or no? and i understand the first bit either end of the fuse , the second bit door connector im lost lol
hiya cover is off...with regard to the multimeter i have no clue what settings it needs to be on when testing so will need you to help me ( im a thicko)
lol ok its a silverline 589681
OK assuming you have put the batteries in the multimeter, take the black cable and put its connector in Com, the Red cable goes to V etc. Once done turn the dial so that the pointer is on the segment next to the 200 ohm marking I click right OK so far?
batteries in, wires as you said then dial turn to the right ? to the 200?
No to the one one click to the right of the 200 ohm, directly opposite the 500v ac.
the beeper one? lol
Yes that is the one, once you have it at this position you should be able to put the two probe ends together and get a beeping?
yup got a beep!
the glass fuse? if so yep gt a beep
so on each of those connectors on the door i test everyone
ok, will b back in 5 mins once ive done
all beeped fine
without sounding special..from the beep place which way do i turn the dial? left? right ?
Turn it to the off position (12 oclock) then one click right to 500
ok give me a couple of mins to check
sadly i cant return it :( if i send u a link to one i found that looks identical would you be able to tell me if that would work?
and yet mine doesnt have the second coil?
mine is the exact same as the one i sent link for, the one u sent is same as what LG have on there site as the board for appliance so im lost lol
The problem is that LG are constantly changing things on their boards as they find they have problems with things, for instance they brought out a pan European board working on 220v and then had massive problems with the UK market because we use 240v so they had to modify the boards, this could be a later board to your original. If LG says its OK I would take a chance ~ the Ebay board is new and very cheap, likely just trying to get rid of old stock ~ I note its the same vendor for both boards ~ Ian
and yet if i go to the lg website and download the manual for the 247 its the same as mine including all diagrams?
so what do you suggest?
so the board i showed you yes? sorry its been a long day ! lol
sadly the link you sent me for the one ending x on ebay has ended so im at a loss but shall rate ur service none the less
good morning, I've mailed the seller and he doesn't think he has one in stock 😩 bad times
thanks, ***** ***** I've mailed lg to see if they can offer any advice
lg have been less than useful
Ive found a board for 207eq on ebay but the board ends in w..no clue if this is of any use
however its its gr p207 eq
thanks it is appreciated
am just awaiting a price from dale thanks
hi, they sold the one ending with Y but have the one ending W its £43 quid and i thing a fiver delivery
it was buy it now so ive been brave thrown caution to the wind! now or never, fortune favours the brave and all that jazz lol..it should arrive somewhere between thurs and monday! heres hoping! my dad got me a quote to repair existing board from someone he knows and it was same sorta money but a trek to go get it sorted lol
OK well keep me in the loop, will be nice to see how you get on and fingers crossed ~ I hope you got you money back for the first rating? If not give me a shout and I'll sort it out for you ~ Ian
hi, yes i got a full refund. i so hope this works the model number on the board is gr-p207eq rather than gr-l207eq but same board number but with a w not x as we kinda hope one letter either side will work lol soon as it arrives ill let you know so we can attempt a straight swap..only concern is that 2nd fuse that was fixed to the board on mine ...
lol ok, will wait til it arrives (my dad could solder it..well id hope he could given hes a metal worker/welder etc and has done all sorts in his 74 yrs of life thus far) brace yourself for when it does arrive we have already established im a thicko lol
hiya! Just to let you know new board arrived...i asked my dad to fit it and it all works!! And he's going to get his mate to repair the old board as a back up spare. I honestly cant thank you enough for your patience with me and support you have been great x thanks again Ian
