My LRFD22850ST fridge keeps beeping every 30 seconds even

Customer Question

Hi my LRFD22850ST fridge keeps beeping every 30 seconds even though the doors are properly closed. Unplugging the fridge stops the beeping for a few minutes then it resumes. Is there anything I can do other than call a repairman?
JA: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?
Customer: It's an LG LRFD22850ST and it's about 10 years old I think. It came with the house when we bought it.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Only if it's simple
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The lights in the fridge go on and off. I unscrewed them because sometimes they were turning on when the doors were closed.

Check to see if the door switches are operating correctly. If they are then you have a control board issue. If not you will need to replace a door switch on the unit. Make sure the light is going off in the unit when you close the switches.

I believe it is a control board issue. My question was is there a way to stop the beeping other than unplugging the fridge?
