36" French Door Refrigerator with Slim SpacePlus™ Ice System, 28 cu.ft.

Key Features

  • Slim SpacePlus™ Ice System
  • Smart Cooling Plus System
  • Linear Compressor with 10-Year Warranty

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!

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 Very roomy Love the freezer on bottom. Lots of room. Sometimes the left hand door slams shut. Otherwise do like this model. Very bright inside too. Quiet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handles Need Improved Finish I've had this fridge for one month. Basically, I really like it, but there are a few cosmetics that need to be improved upon. The handles are made of a glossy black finish and do not wipe off easily with a sponge, even when you apply pressure. Do NOT use abrasive cleaner or even a gentle scouring pad to remove any caked-on food, or it will dull the shiny handles. Not practical. I also have a tiny scratch on top of the freezer drawer just by opening and closing it, so be careful there as well. Apparently, the black finish scratches easily. My last fridge's doors (side by side) closed easily with a light push. These doors do not. Make sure you don't walk away before checking the fridge doors are completely shut. Otherwise, the looks and functionality of this refrigerator are excellent. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fridge I love, love, love this fridge. the slimline Ice maker in the door leaves so much room in both the fridge and freezer, that we had no need for our second fridge. I would definately recommend this fridge to everyone. Looks great. Love the LG line so much that we purchased a over the range microwave. Thank for the great products

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! We bought this frig Labor Day weekend. I really like that the ice and water are separated. My husband was always forgetting to move the switch and would get water when he wanted ice with our old frig. I love the door buzzer when doors are left open for too long. The only two things that I would change would be 1) when getting ice or water being able to open the other door and look in the refrigerator. and 2) the top basket in the freezer be metal. We have NOT had any problem with the plastic basket in the freezer but would just prefer metal. These two things are the only reason I am not giving 5 stars. Overall, we all really like this product and am very satisfied! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
