Good afternoon and Welcome to Justanswer,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your LG American style fridge freezer.

Please provide its complete model number (from the label/rating plate located behind the vegetable drawer).

There is no indication of that.

I can't see any plate..

OK, I understand.

If door seal is worn out, door will not close completely hence, this will cause ice build up inside your appliance.

The door seal can be replaced, are you willing to replace it yourself ?

Found it ..the model isGR-B206GVQA

I wouldn't be able to replace it myself. Would it be an easy enough job for a DIY type?

Thank you for the model number.

It depends on your DIY skills.

You have to unplug it and then remove the previous door seal and then you can insert the new one and replace it.

However, door seal for this model is not available on most of spares websites.

You may call LG at 0344(###) ###-####to book repair.
