Nice machine, poor instructions
Machine arrived with dented doors. It worked fine. New doors quickly sent by LG and subsequently fitted by their own engineer. Had the unit for 2 months now and all O.K. No plastic parts have broken and everything operates smoothly. Installation instructions says leave space at the sides but does not say how much (there are vents in the sides at the bottom). Noise is lower than our old fridge/freezer. Surprised that display does not show actual cabinet temperatures, only set points. Apparently this is normal these days. It comes with 10 year compressor guarantee but you pay a handsome price for high efficiency.

needed a female on the design team!
This fridge freezer works very well and looks lovely. Once it's cooled down to temperature it's really quiet; the lighting inside is excellent and there's loads of space. But it's hard to open the fridge door - no release catch like my last fridge had; the dairy store is too shallow and can't be adjusted; you have to keep the door shelves full as there's nothing to stop bottles rolling around and the big fruit, veg and meat drawers have no runners so can only be opened half way. And the ice cube maker in the freezer is a waste of space. Too soon to tell if it's as economical as they claim, but I'd have expected more finesse for the money.
