My 2 year old LG fridge stopped working-no lights, no fan, control panel dead. I have power at the outlet. Opened the back and noticed the fuse that is soldered to the motherboard is blown. Is there any way to replace the fuse short of replacing the entire circuit board for $200?

Is there anything else that may have contributed to the problem that I've overlooked? The obvious question: how did the fuse blow and how to avoid a repeat?

I welcome your feedback.

I've seen that happen a few times. power surge maybe....if your good with soldering I would try replacing the fuse first.

yes, nothing to lose ..

you could replace it with an in-line Fuse Holder from Radio Shack

Thanks for your input. I will try to solder in a fuse vs $$190 for a new circuit board. I'm incredulous that LG provides no alternative to a blown fuse other than plugging in a new board.

Thanks. I've located an in-line fuse holder at radioshack and a 8.0-Amp 250V 1¼x¼" Slow-Blow Fuse. The existing fuse is soldered to the board with metal prods. I am hoping I can clip the metal prods and fuse wires of the in-line fuse holder to them.

Evidently this is a common problem with LG refrigerators. I've seen 1/2 dozen other posts regarding blown fuse. No one has reported successful resolution.

Any thoughts on slow blow fuse vs fast blow fuse?

Worst-case scenario-it doesn't work and I overnight a new circuit board to have a working refrigerator in time for thanksgiving.
