What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from some gooe things some not-so-good things after owning this fridge for a few years, we have run into a some problems. - freezer rails keep sticking, which resulted in the track spindle breaking. - water tubing springing a leak, the connection being impossible to fix. we are awaiting service for 2 wks. - interior part snapping. though this could be attributed to normal wear-and-tear, the part was very expensive to replace. - the ice maker has broken, once. all-in-all, with the test of time, this fridge is on the cusp of not be recommendable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Fridge I bought my LG fridge a few months ago. I loved it at first sight and still love it. I am so glad I decided on this fridge! I love the bright light on the inside and the dual drawer freezer. I put my most used items in the top drawer. It is so handy. I like that I am not looking at the ice compartment on the inside of the fridge. It is basically hidden. I put my small bottles in front of it. I love my ice/water on the outside of the fridge and how the display is not in my face but more sleek down the side of the ice/water dispenser. I recommend this fridge to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fridge Purchased LMX21986ST Counter Depth and I've been very happy with it's performance and look. I tend to find that the ice does stick together at times, so you need to break it up before you use it - this could be due to my kids keeping the door open I'm not sure.
