Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

My LG GR-P197WVS 569 litre keeps beeping randomly and at times rapidly, but it is the ice dispenser area, not the door. The beeping is the noise that it makes when you change the selection from water to ice or crushed, not the open door beep. I have tried turning the fridge unit on and off as well as locking the selection panel, but it will still randomly beep.

SOURCE: LG ice maker only dispenses crushed ice not whole cubes

Very problematic issue with this model .Try unplugging and plugging the fridgerator which resets the board.The board is located on top under a removeable panel where the power cord enters....there is a reset/diagnostic button on the board itself.Contact LGUSA.com for any possible warranty and complain like crazy to avoid spending $300 on this board which can be purchased from andrewselectronics.com who is a factory authorized parts provider.Keeping that ice maker going will make you pull your hair out which is unfortuante for such a stylish and expensive fridge.good luck

You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid

SOURCE: Crushed vs Cubed

The solenoid itself might be all right, but just can't move the plastic piece because it's stuck and needs to be defrosted and a bit of grease applied to the plastic slider. That's what happened to ours.
I posted a solution here, but it's not the easiest maneuver in the world to actually disconnect that harness to remove the dispenser.
You might just be able to shoot a bit of grease back there, from the front, without removing the dispenser, and then work it really good back and forth to free it up. Better yet, take a hair dryer and first defrost that plastic selector mechanism, by blowing hot air on it.
Also look at this, where I talked about removing the entire dispenser and defrosting, drying, lubing a couple of points in there --

Sounds tome that there is a short in the dispenser control circuit, keyboard or Control Board. If you had the model number I could help you better than this. I possibly would be able to walk you through this, Let me know, Sea Breeze

LG fridge freezer GR-L207QVJA. The ice dispenser gives a choice of crushed ice or ice cubes, but has stopped dispensing ice cubes and gives crushed ice on both settings.
