Beeping fridge model # GR-642AP

LG fridge freezer model # GR-642AP.
Fridge display flashes, beeps and then disappears leaving only the set temperature of the fridge on display. Beeps when it reappears. This occurs every 10-20 seconds. Have switched the unit off for approx 10 mins and switched back on only for the problem to continue. The beeping is driving me mad.

    I have just started experiencing a very similar problem. the display panel beeps about every 30seconds and the temperature setting keeps changing.



    I am not sure if the Thermostat is on its way out.

    Also have an LG fridge that keeps beeping. The temperature settings stay the same and the beeping starts randomly and may stop for a day and then return. The beeping is stressing everybody out.

May have an earth problem, have a refrigeration technician check the earth terminal in the back of power point and back of refrigerator, also check the connections of plugs to the printed circuit board (PCB) in the fridge.

SOURCE: Samsung RB1855SW won't stop beeping and fridge malfunctioning

Thanks so much for the advice. I just gently pried the door sensor switch on my Samsung RB1855SL out with a butter knife and then pulled out the electrical connection and it fired up right away. It looks like some orange juice seeped in and corroded it. What a relief to have the fridge working again, not to mention to not have to listen to the beeping.

SOURCE: The alarm beep which tells you to close

Hello,


Sounds like you have a bad door switch. Depending on the age of the fridge, it might still be under warranty. If it's not, then you might be able to access the door switch yourself and pull it out & replace it.


Good luck......

our problem was fridge door alarm ,no cooling ,light out ,Freezer ok. Turned out to be the fridge side of the fridge/freezer door switch . Removing the double switch (it's a press fit) enables the fridge fan to work while waiting replacement. Replaced with new double switch now we have a light too.

Hi.

Try disconnecting power cord for ten minutes (turning off is not enough). See if that does reset the fridge.

If that does not help, then check if there is ice forming in evaporator coil at the back of the fridge. Eventually wait one or two extra day. If ice starts forming and fridge quits cooling, then you have a problem with the defrost system. Likely the thermostat or the defrost timer.

IF the unit keeps cooling regularly, and defrost is OK, then it may be a disconnected temperature sensor. This will cause beeping, and fridge cooling regularly.


About defrost control, see this article: When the fridge is not cooling ...

To find parts and diagrams enter the model number in the links listed below, try all the links listed:

Where do I find parts and diagrams?

If you need to contact a technician use the Fixya directory (US only).


Regards.

Ginko.

Model E402b. Why is the alarm going off?


Fridge keeps beeping or buzzing: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.

Fridge & freezer lights and the water display light beep and flash 10-12 times every few hours. Simultaneously a fan motor starts and stops. Any one know what needs to be done to remedy this?

Left door of F/P fridge part for a week. Now red light is flashing, beep stopped but fridge not cold enough.


Hello Jennifer;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

No. Your problem is not defrost.

The normal temperature setting for a freezer is -2 to +2 degrees F. or -18.8 to -16.7 degrees C. The fresh food section should be set at 35-40 Degrees F. or 1.6 to 4.4 degrees C.

Reset your temperature controls to the recommended settings.
Up plug your unit for 10 minute to power down. Plug your refrigerator in.

My lg fridge keeps beeeping model number gr642apa 8 years ago the beeping is driving me insane but everything else is workin only beeping all the time


http://www.manualslib.com/manual/692499/Lg-Gr-642apa.html
This is the link to the manual for your model. The beeping fault codes are covered starting on page 19 and get into detail by page 22. There are a number of triggering events or causes so you should read about them and try what the manual describes to try and turn the beep off.

FRIG KEEPS BEEPING BUT DOORS R CLOSED TIGHT


Not knowing the make and model of your fridge, I would suggest reseting the fridge and freezer temperature settings, inside your fridge. With some fridges like Fisher & Paykel, when the power is cut to the fridge, it will beep until you select the temperature level inside the fridge.
Failing that, a constant beep is a warning code to alert that a fridge component has failed.
