Hi, Thanks for using justanswer!
LG corp has limited service info available even to us service techs that work on them everyday! Here is a link to a service manual for your fridge. I would start with unplugging the unit for 5 minutes and replugging it back in. The sensor may be picking up some heat from the refrigerator itself. Try cleaning the condenser coil. But never the less this is a valuable manual for you!
