What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size I love the small footprint of this fridge and it still has generous interior space. The one downside to this item is the lighting. The lights are down the center in the back of the fridge so when it is full it is very dark because the food blocks the light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution Our Refrigerator was "slowly dying" and I kept delaying the inevitable. Finally I started shopping around. Was looking for the bottom freezer type, as I have issues with my back & thought since I was in the refrigerator more than the freezer, that would make more sense. I could not have made a BETTER decision. Since space was an issue, this was a perfect fit, has plenty of room inside & a PERFECT SOLUTION to our situation. It is quiet, sleek design and is doing a great job for us. It is a perfect size for a family of 2!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for small space or small household I love the freezer on the bottom and having drawers to separate my frozen items. As a single person, it is just the right amount of space for the food I keep in there. I anticipate a lower electric bill due to the smaller interior and more efficient use of space. I had the Euro version of this (Vesta) at my home in Baltimore and it had a wine rack along the top of the refrigerator interior. I miss that, and it cost y'all a star! ;-) I do like the beep when I forget why I am standing looking into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This refrigerator has great features. I love the freezer on the bottom. I was greatly surprised by the amount of room in the refrigerator and freezer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique size and footprint makes this a winner. I have a rather small kitchen, so floorspace is critical. I also live alone, and although I cook and entertain, I have no need of a monster "Family-size" refrigerator. This LG model fits flush with the countertops and has the freezer below (where it belongs). It's virtually silent, and the sleek and modern lines don't draw attention to itself. The inside compartments and drawers are brilliantly designed to be flexible. Case in point: I can fit an entire Thanksgiving dinner (25-lb turkey, etc.) inside with space to spare!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended for Apt. Living or Tight Spaces It's a great appliance so far, it's only been a couple of months. It looks great and works well. It is limited capacity for large bottles. It is made for one or two persons, there is not a lot of room for big items. The freeze is fairly large for the size.

Is the capacity of the freezer really larger than the fridge?  What color are the sides?  What is the large white thing inside the door of the freezer?  Where do the ice cube trays go?

Asked by: Cardarch
No, the capacity for the freezer section on the LG Large Capacity 2 Door Bottom-Mount Refrigerator, Model # LBN10551PV is 3.6 cubic feet versus 6.5 cubic feet for the Refrigerator section. Our apologies for the error on our site where the capacities were erroneously inverted. The sides of this unit are gray. We would need some clarification on what you're referring to as the "large white thing" inside the freezer door. The only thing on the freezer door is the inner insulation to keep the inside of the freezer cold and that is where the Ice Tray will be so that your ice cubes don't melt...^IFV

Is Refrigerator LBN10551 auto defrost

Are your dimensions inverted? Should it be Fridge 6.5? for lbc10551sw

CAPACITY Refrigerator Freezer Total 3.6 cu. ft. 6.5 cu. ft. 10.1 cu. ft.
Asked by: jim7777
The technical data sheet pdf has the more logical division: more refrigerator space than freezer. (I wonder that the web page isn't edited though. The site also doesn't include a model given by the energy star website as registered more than 2 months ago.)

follow up on my earlier question: would a container that is 16 ¾" x 12 ¾" by 2" high fit in the freezer section of LBN 10551PS?

None of your answers was helpful. It is not a question of the volume of the 16 ¾" by 12 ¾" by 2" H container vs. the total capacity of the freezer section of the LBN 10551PS. The question is whether, given those dimensions, the container would fit in the freezer section. For example, if the width and the depth of the freezer section are less than 16 ¾, the container will not fit, regardless of its cubic footage. The question can be easily answered by measuring the width and depth of the freezer section. I need to know the answer before buying the appliance.
Asked by: sculptor23
Hello Sculptor23, we regret to read that our previous answers as to whether or not a container with the dimensions you gave will fit in the refrigerator section of the LG LBN10551S. As we explained in the answers, we do not have access to the dimensions for the freezer section for that unit and the only measurements we had was the cubic foot capacity for that section, We do not have a unit that we can measure to give you a direct answer to your question but going on the fact that this unit has an external measurement of 23 3/8" for its width and a depth of 21 5/8", looking at the images of the freezer section combined with the cubic foot capacities, it appears that your container will probably fit, but we do understand that you need a more accurate and definitive answer and suggest that you contact the LG Customer Interactive Center at (800) 243-0000 to inquire from a product specialist on this as they may have access to the mechanical drawings that have those measurements...^IFV
