What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful. I received it August 30, 2016. Works very well and fits wonderfully in my small kitchen. Cannot fit gallon size items but does fit a lot of other items.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice looks, below average functionality. I loved the design, unfortunately I had to call the service repairman within the year. Luckily, the warranty was still good. Hopefully it will stay that way. Freezer compartment is nice with drawers. Adding more fridge space and one less freezer drawer would make the design even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the size I needed a refrigerator that was counter depth . This was the only one I could find and it is perfect. The exterior is easy to keep clean and the storage is just right for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fridge I've ever owned! I bought this a couple of years ago LOVE IT! Not one single problem. Keeps everything Cold! If you are looking for a good apartment sized (tiny house) get this. You won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My refrigerator is the future! I bought the LBN10551SW because I wanted another freezer at the bottom model, but this refrigerator has so many other forward thinking features besides. The bottom freezer accounts for almost half the appliance, and because of that it's the perfect size for me. I freeze food all the time because I make about two smoothies a day and cook ahead meals for the week. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far Great......! Very quiet unit, counter depth is a big plus . Being used in a renovated mobile home and location of unit is in hallway leading bedrooms, so depth and lack of surface handles was a big plus! Old unit stuck out 5 inches past counter line. Bottom freezer great, we do not use that much anyway and better on the back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Many Admirers! I've had my fridge for about 6 months. I live in a studio and sleep in the same room with it. I chose this model because LG bottom freezer models get high marks for quietness in consumer magazines. I've been sleeping better since I got it. Need I say more. Well, I will, because it also gets many unexpected complements without even being pointed out to guests. They notice the sleek design right away, and are very curious to see inside. I try to keep it really tidy inside, inspired by the good looking interior. I like the three freezer drawers which mean I don't have to dig to find frozen foods. For a small refrigerator compartment, it seems to store a lot. I would give it five stars if it wasn't a little tricky to remove the shelves for cleaning. In order to pull them out I must first remove the door storage compartments, and their contents, and open the door to it's full extent. Still, I'm happy with this fridge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier LOVE it and it is perfect for 2 people + a child. It's smart looking, holds an amazing about in the freezer, and has separate thermostats for the fridge and freezer. I can control the temperatures easily so the freezer is really cold, and the fridge keeps things cold enough so that I have had much less spoilage and no frozen veggies. I also appreciate the four freezer drawers: that means I don't have to dig around to find things. And there's no frost so frozen things taste better. The fridge has plenty of door room for bottles, etc., and it's made my life so much easier because I can SEE everything. Great lighting!

Hi - thanks in advance ! Can the glass / plastic shelves be cleaned in the dishwasher ? B/c when I turn over the shelf (while taken out for cleaning), there is "gunk" in between the glass and plastic (underside), and the glass is not removable.

Asked by: Veronica Versa
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator and its accessories. According to our documentation, it is recommended only to hand-wash these door bins. There is no problem with allowing the bin to soak before washing, but it is not recommended to place these in a dishwasher.

Asked by: Lsrn31983
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator and its display. Both the refrigerator and freezer compartment will produce colder air as the indicator light nears the right side of the display.

Can you put something on top of the refrigerator?

Asked by: Gabyeoun
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator. If anything is positioned on top of the cabinet, be certain there is room for air circulation to prevent overheating behind the unit. Heat generated by the sealed system comes from the back of the cabinet and disperses over the top of the unit.

Lbn10551ps does the door have to swing past 90 degrees to open drawers? I am installing next to a wall on the hinge side.

Asked by: Curtiss
I have mine up against a wall and the drawers open fine. It.s actually against the baseboard which gives it a little wiggle room.
