First off, let me direct you to a neat site that will have parts diagrams, parts lists, and shows exploded views, helpful for identifying switches and other things that can signal the control board to go in to alarm:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com
Enter your model number, since the one provided just gave me washing machines.

To get the beeping to stop, you have to fix or bypass the problem. You mentioned constant problems with the unit, so I'm thinking you might have a bad door sensor switch, etc, or a bad control board, or both.
Ok, in the following blog they had replaced a control board and that didn't fix it. Here's what they said, and how another person diabled the piezso buzzer:

ok at the top of fridge is a grey cover that covers the wires that are attached to the fridge make sure that little button is pushed in when the doors are closed..

Just cut the wires on the Piezzo Buzzer, it looks like a little circle, or put a piece of tape on it, this will stop this really annoying beep, you need to have some Electical Knowledge though, sure some one you know can do it.

The switch could be brolen, also, and hopefully the diagrams will help you.
Here is the blog with all the people who had this problem and how some fixed it:
http://www.chrisinch.com/blog/articles/show/lg-fridge-door-alarm/
The door switch sounds like the most likely prospect. Make sure the unit is perfectly level, that can effect how the doors sit and seat.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

My Miele Fridge Freezer Keeps Beeping Although there is no issue, how do i remove the alarm?


I bet the light is also staying on inside even if the door is closed. There is a switch inside that turn the light on and off when the door is open. If the (Door Switch) is working then the light inside should shut off when the door is closed to save energy. It also tell the computer the door has been shut in case you forget then it will notify you. The switch may not be working. Look for a door with on ebay or sears. Need your model number and brand of the unit.

Fridgidaire freezer stop beeping


Good Heather, thank you for your inquiry! If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer/beeping will sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. First, deactivate the alarm to the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. After deactivating the alarm and the unit has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, the freezer may possibly have a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend connecting with an experienced technician to determine the underlying cause.

Alarm won't stop beeping


Door left open or temp is too warm. most I found is heavy ice build up on freezer evaporator, very easy to tell, pull out one of the drawer and look on the back wall, it should not have any ice on it (a little frost is OK). It may be bad Evaporator sensor, Evaporator fan motor is not running, door evaporator fan reed switch installed upside down,bad connection on defrost heater connector, bad defrost heater element, open heater HI limit switch, open gap on door gasket and compressor never stop running. If no ice build up and compressor is running but temp is rising then it may be sealed system problem. Good Luck.

My intergrated Beko fridge freezer keeps beeping. I have defrosted it but it still keeps beeping! Please help this driving me wild!


Tell me, what is the purpose of that beeping. There should be some indication. Lots of different alarms come up. Most common are when the evaporator fan does not transfer frost to the rest of the the fridge. So check fan for movement.
