Key Features

More Usable Space

Most ice makers take up space in the fridge. Our Slim SpacePlus™ Ice System is located on the door, so you end up with more storage space on the top shelf--and you still have storage space on the door as well.

Fresher is Better

Our Smart Cooling Plus System, enabled by LG's exclusive Linear Compressor motor maintains the optimal humidity and temperature levels in your fridge, which means your food stays fresher, longer. Meanwhile, a Fresh Air Filter removes odours and the Multi-Air Flow design means your food stays fresh no matter where you put it.

Peace Of Mind

When you buy a refrigerator, you don't want to worry that it won't last. Because the Linear Compressor motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.

Easy to Open

Get in and out of the freezer with ease thanks to an effortless SmartPull™ handle. After getting used to this ergonomic design, you'll never go back!

Call, Connect, Resolve

SmartDiagnosis™ uses self-diagnosing technology that can communicate 24/7 with LG customer service over the telephone providing you with comfort and reliability.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the space Love the amount of space of this refrigerator and huge freezer. Very convenient shelving. Love the drawers too. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator at a Great Price We purchased this unit to replace an old side-by-side GE refrigerator, and we have been very pleased with the appearance, functionality, and design of this french door model. We highly recommend this model to anyone looking for a new refrigerator at a fair price. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slow on ice First off we really like this refrigerator, spacious, solid, plenty of drawers, quiet. However if you use a lot of ice this is not your refrigerator, just between my wife and I it has a hard time keeping up unless we keep it in their freeze zone, but it still struggles to keep up. We might use a little more ice than normal, we drink a lot of ice water, but for a larger family, you would probably run out of ice. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, smooth door operation Plenty of space, seem to be very well made. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is the temp inside does not match what the thermostat says it is on the door. It is off by almost 10 degrees. I have called LG and they say I have the air flow blocked but no matter how I arrange things it is still off. It does keep things cold but for the price you would think that would not be an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! This fridge is exactly what I was looking for! I love how the ice maker is scaled down and slim -- don't lose any space in fridge. The fridge is well lit and bright, making finding things easy. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fridge. This refrigerator is great. It has lots of room and it is easy to see what is on the shelves. I especially like the adjusting shelf on the top that allowed me to put in tall items. Our family members who don't live with us get tricked by the water dispenser sometimes and run the water on the floor. We enjoy how it works. We have plenty of ice since we can store a lot in the freezer section. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fridge/freezer It’s so easy to use and operate that my 2 year old can get whatever he needs. ;) The freezer could use something else, possibly a second sliding drawer or more dividers. I’m not sure what would boost it to 5 stars for me. We loved that the ice maker is in the door, not taking up room in the top of the fridge. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
