Doesn't sound good but check the cooling coils to make sure they aren't covered in dust and lint. It is quite amazing how much lint collects on the coils in all home and should be vacuumed off regularly. Next try and access the fan and spin it by hand [power off!] and then plug in again. If it still doesn't spin the check that it is getting power and if so you nee a new fan.

I am think your problem is it is not coming on. If that is right my first thoughts do you have power to refrigerator. Check breaker or fuse in house electrical panel which powers the refrigerator outlet. Try turning the breaker off and back on . You might try unplugging the refrigerator and plug something else into the outlet to see if it will work if you do not have a volt meter. You said you changed the refrigerator fuse was it blown and could it have blown the new fuse.
If it has power but is not working there are a few you tube videos for help with several issues. I searched for( LG ice beam door cooling refrigerator freezer not working) and picked these two you can look for more.

Did your fridge come with a dummy or fake filter? If so put that in and see if it will dispense. It may be that the fridge software is preventing the ice maker and water dispenser from working until the filter is replaced. Some GE fridges actively prevent bypassing the filter.

There is a small plastic hose running from the back of the ice maker into the ice maker tray that may be loose ?

Possibly a clogged piece of ice from water leakage preventing the dispensing of ice. If you haven't tried taking the ice bucket out and rinsing it under hot water to get all the frozen ice out, you should.

Lowering the water pressure to the fridge by turning the knob on the connection at the wall should help prevent the excess water and clogging going forward. There is a very small change between almost off and just on, where the water will still dispense from the front of the fridge but you can tell that the pressure is less, that should give the desired results. It may take some trial and error by testing the water flow from the door while adjusting the valve at the wall.

The water pressure adjustment may help with the flooding problem under the meat/cheese drawer as well, but most likely you have a clogged drain too because it's a very common issue with these fridges. There should be a panel on the bottom back of the fridge with 3 or 4 Phillips head screws that opens access to the drain tubes which are just about in the horizontal center. The drain tubes are little white plastic tubes with flexible bulges (they look like really oversized whitish/clear bendy straws). They are about 5 inches long each and you will probably see a bunch of gunk at the bottom where they enter the plastic evaporation tray. There is a rubber grommet with a flap on the end of them that needs to be cleaned out, and there may even be some ice formed in the tube that needs to be cleaned out. This will take a bit of time and patience while crouching or on your knees, so be ready for that and have towels ready for excess water. I found a turkey baster and a glass of warm water to be very helpful as well.

Aside from aesthetics, the temperature control could be defective.

The defrost drain could be clogged or not working

LG Refrigerators | Answered on May 07, 2019

If yours is the same as mine, the hood (what I believe you are calling the "flap") is not meant to open. It is there so you can see what's in the drawer, but it doesn't lift up, even with the trays above out of the way.

Make sure that the auger in the ice bin is lined up with the auger socket behind the ice bin.
