What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No plumbed water the reason I purchased I was told by the Good Guys that you can buy a wine rack and an extra glass shelf. NO you can't. As stated in another review, what do you do if a shelf breaks they are after all glass? My water won't pump to make ice. The ice box is empty, I cleaned everything. Not working. About 18 months old. Cold water via the dispenser is not cold which is surprising considering the container is in the fridge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just OK Mine just started leaking today from the ice side, every where was water in the kitchen and no cooling on the ice side. The amazing thing is this happened just after 2 year and one month, so don't have warranty any more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the fact that no plumbing is needed Bought my fridge about 15 months ago, the water filter stopped working. i did buy a extended warranty i called LG direct and they had someone out and fixed it within 3 working days :) Hopefully it was just a faulty part and not something that keep breaking as i love the fridge. Thanks guys for the speedy work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reasonable value for money Pros: Exterior finish is easy to clean and looks good. Fridge and freezer stay cold. Ice maker works well and is easy to use. Cons: Not enough shelves in fridge to pack smaller items efficiently although there are alternative shelf slots. Water comes out of door at room temp not chilled. Ice maker takes up a lot of freezer space.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lack of spare parts availability You can't buy a wine rack or spare glass shelves, despite being told by the salesman you could from spare parts! Don't know what you would do should a shelf break.
