Question about LG Refrigerators
Mine wouldn't stop beeping and the light on the left side wouldn't turn on along with no water and ice.
my solution was I had a arlo camera that has a magnet in it and it was sitting on the top left of the fridge, I move it and everything was back to normal.
it was driving me nuts for over an hour. I hope this helps someone.

My LJ refrigerator alarm started going off continuous a few days ago. I don't have a fancy model where you can turn off the alarm. After going after all the possible causes, I realized a needed a new gasket but thought I'd lose my mind waiting for the part. Came up with an easy solution. The open door alarm starts when a sensor detects light when the door is closed. I looked in each compartment for something that could be a sensor and spotted two identical rectangles near each door. Covered each with duct tape. Sweet, sweet silence.
P.S. Use a large piece and make sure the surface is bone dry or the freezer one can let in light once frozen.
P.P.S It’s still goes off sometimes when someone opens either door, but I just close both doors firmly and it stops again. Not a perfect fix, but sanity saving.

LG GR-P157NIS - Side by Side Refrigerator with Indoor Ice Maker
**Buzzer Sound Mute mode**
Will set the buzzer/beep/error/ding/alarm sound to "off"
Press and hold the "Express FRZ" button for more than 5 seconds (you will hear a beep, the final beep!), and Mute mode is active until the next reset.
You can unmute with another 5 second press on the "Express FRZ" button.
Perhaps your model has the same. I found this info in the Service manual and not in the user manual.

Hi, welcome to Fixya A very common problem with those fridges actually. Check to make sure the door sensor`s are secure and contacting each other when the door is closed. You can do this by accessing one or both sides of the door sensors at the hinge assembly cover at the cabinet top. There should be sensor`s on either side which sense when the door is closed by "making" with magnets on the doors. They sometimes become loose from where they are held in place and therefore do not indicate the door is actually closed. That is the most likely cause. If this does indeed help you solve your issue please take a moment and rate it accordingly. If it doesn't solve the problem let me know and I'll try and assist you further. Thanks for visiting "fixya" today. good luck. macmarkus :)

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.

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 ...
