Only frost free models have a drain and that is recognisable by a funnel shaped moulding in the plastic of the cabinet liner terminating in a hole.

Frost free models have a heating element that is switched on briefly after each cooling cycle, melting any ice that has formed over the evaporator. The resulting water droplets are channeled into the drain by the funnel-shaped moulding. The drain leads to a tray fixed to the compressor and the heat from the compressor causes the water to evaporate.

The best thing to check if the drain is clear is a flexible curtain wire and for a good clean a variety of suitably sized brushes are available.
Sometimes the insulation of a fridge or freezer becomes sodden with water and ice tends to build over that area. Where the drain runs through an area of sodden insulation where ice is forming it can be impossible to clear the drain.

Check the outside of the cabinet for cold spots. The presence of a cold spot indicates the insulation is failing and it is time to replace...

  1. Tray is worn or hard water build up
  2. 5989JA1005H ice maker assembly
  3. You could try removing it and then clean the cube tray with a ice maker descaler and then use a food grade silicone spray to coat the cube holes and follow the manufacturer directions.
  4. But I would just change it and be done.

Try and un-plug the fridge for 10 minutes, then plug it back in. It should reset. Make sure the arm is in the down position inside the ice compartment.

Try pulling the cover off in the back of the fridge and see if the fan is still operating when you push the light sensor switch in but hold it down for at least 10-20seconds to see if it starts.

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.

LG has rather finicky icemakers that are usually computerized. There are magnetic pickups that tend to not read right causing icemaker failure.If it will cycle but not fill then this is most likely the issue. Without knowing the model#, I can only guess but as long as you have proper temperatures then the icemaker will need to be replaced.

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

SOUNDS LIKE YOU SHOULD HAVE LOOKED AT THE ICEMAKER WITH THE POWER ON NOW YOU REALLY NEED A REPAIR SERVICE OR ANOTHER NEW FRIDGE

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.

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.
