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!

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my fridge! Bought this one about 8 months ago. So far, I love it. No problems. Quiet and great ice maker!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ice Maker I purchased this refrigerator in August 2015 in White and didn't receive it until October 2015. Two months later they had to replace the ice maker. Just had to have the ice maker replaced again in July 2017. I like everything about this product except the ice maker. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Ice maker I bought this in August 2015 and had to get a new ice maker twice already. The first time was 2 months after I purchased the refrigerator and in July 2017. I like the refrigerator but not the ice maker. I would not recommend this brand to anyone. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy We bought this refrigerator 4 months ago and it started making a very loud noise after 2 months. It looks like a good refrigerator but it is not. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent Only have a few days but love it. Have other LG appliances and know they are steps above in quality and design. Love the ease of opening and closing. Love that I can see everything! The ice is so clear and water tasty!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE Ice Maker & Stainless is Hard to Clean! We have owned several really nice stainless steel refrigerator/freezer combos over the years and this one has the absolutely worst ice maker we've ever come across. This thing can't keep up with two adults that work full-time without running out of ice. We can usually each fill-up our 24oz Tervis cups once and then it's out of ice. We put the "extra ice" setting on and that seems to make very little difference. We have been extremely disappointed with this really expensive purchase!!! The other really negative thing is that even though it states that it's super easy to clean - it's anything but. We've tried the suggested cleaners and many others, but there are always finger prints, cleaner streaks, etc. Come On LG - You can do better and will have to for us to buy LG again. BTW - We bought all new matching appliance and the same issues are true with cleaning the microwave, stove/oven and dishwasher. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great refrigerator. Quieter than my other brand. Replaced refrigerator and washer and dryer with LG products. Love them all. Much quieter and better quality than last brand. Love how quiet new refrigerator is. Also, no smells. The Fresh Filter multi air flow is phenomenal. I don't smell any food smells when opening the doors.
