Lamona HJA6015. Fridge drops below freezing to minus 5C. Have de-iced, replaced thermostat, main board, and thermister which is found behind the freezer back plate. Result .. No difference. Seems nobody has a clue how to fix it.

The Hoover Orchid is actually a rebadged Phillips Fridge. It would be over 20 years old now. I used to fix these in the mid to late 90,s

Can be 2 things. If its over freezing, its likely the thermostat has jammed closed and continually causing the compressor to keep running. This will make the freezer get too cold and over freeze. If its not icing up and not getting cold, I would say its lost its gas charge. The compressor is continually running, trying to get down to temperature.

I would say that either the filter has split or the seal where it screws into the housing has failed. I would try a new filter and seal.

I think it isn't fine because if a fridge/freezer that is otherwise healthy runs continuously (due to a thermostat fault), it would be colder than you could imagine with lower than arctic temperatures in the freezer compartment, minus 30-40 C for example.

The conclusion must be your fridge isn't fine.
Proper freezer temperature, incidentally, is minus 25-27 C for food to have a reasonable lifespan with minimal deterioration. There is no benefit from being colder but significantly warmer would mean the freezer contents should be replaced much more often - the freezer compartment of an old fashioned fridge (about minus 5) was reckoned to give fish, meat and dairy up to one month safe lifespan.

A fridge that runs continuously (where the thermostat is good) could have a refrigerant loss resulting in a huge drop in efficiency, the insulation could be failing, the compressor could be failing or the de-icing panel could be permanently switched on - or any combination of these things.

I note you say the coils are clean. If the refrigeration system is good with the compressor running continuously the coils will be hand-hot.

The bar will sense ice cube level in the holding bin. If it is all the way down it will tell the ice maker to make more ice. When the maker "dumps" the ice the bar should be all the way up and will lower to check the level.

Load Communication Error.

This one needs the service technician. It may mean the panel control board needs to replaced.

This unit lists 2 separate water valves, which one did you change?
Did you check for power at the water valve moles plug?

LG refrigerator not dumping ice.

I own a LG LFXS24566S and it was making ice but not dumping it.
If I pressed the reset button, it would dump the ice and fill the tray again but once frozen it would still not dump the ice. A technician was dispatched to replace the ice-maker but the problem remained. During the next visit, he had me "reboot" the refrigerator by removing power for five minutes, which fixed the issue.
