What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good Had this almost 3 weeks & am pleasantly surprised. I use the freezer a lot & am adjusting to a drawer style. For light to better see the freezer I put a clip on lamp on the table next to frig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good It's a good fridge for a small space. The depth makes it easy to reach things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Fridge! For years we haven't been able to open the doors fully on our refrigerator or freezer because there simply wasn't enough space. Our kitchen has a narrow space for the refrigerator and it has always been hard to find one that fits correctly. But with this one, we are able to open the doors all the way and even though it's only 15cu ft, it holds as much food as out larger one did! We love it. It took a little while to get to the store; but it was well worth the wait!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size, excellent features We wanted a bottom freezer for convenience, and needed a small sized unit for the space. This LG fits perfectly, and is so quiet, super-cold and efficient, with plenty of space, and adjustable shelves. Doors were reversed to accommodate our kitchen space. Perfect small counter-depth fridge & bottom freezer. Love the ice-maker too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG Electronics - LBNC15221V After 2 weeks - This refrigerator is quiet, easy to access both refrigerator and freezer, good interior lighting, great fit for our small kitchen. Two upgrades: 1. the plastic shelves on the doors are light weight/cheap (I will be careful) and the LG company suggests buying an extra protective service guarantee, which makes me think they do not trust their own product will last for 5 years without needing repairs. This lowers my confidence in what seems like a good refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact yet lots of features I needed a small frig to fit in a very small kitchen with just enough room to turn around between the space for the fridge and the counter on the opposite wall this fit perfectly. I especially like the drawers in the bottom freezer plus the collapsible shelf in the top section

LG LBNC15221V: What is the actual height of the case? The Tech Specs : Height to Top of Case 67 6/8”; Height to Top of Door Hinge 67 6/8”. It could not be the same. Please advise

Asked by: RobertST
Hello Robert, the LBNC15221V model has hidden hinge and therefore it only has one height. In other words, 67 6/8” means including hinge and top display. ^AC

What is the height of the back of the fridge less the hinge

Asked by: doogie4
The hinge for this ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 15 cu. ft. Large Capacity 28” Wide Bottom Freezer Refrigerator, Model # LBNC15221V is designed so that it does not protrude above the top of the refrigerator's case so the refrigerator has the same height of 67 6/8" for the front and for the back of its case. You can enlarge the main image of the refrigerator on its product page on our site which shows the refrigerator with the door open to see how the hinge fits...^IFV

Are the sides of this fridge metal or plastic? The pictures look like smooth metal, but I just received my fridge and the sides are plastic.

Asked by: scy1752
Hello SCY1752, the sides of the refrigerator are made of steel. There may be a coating on the sides that might make it feel like it is plastic, however, we do not make a unit with plastic sides. Please feel free to place magnets on the side of the unit. ^AC

Is there any matching appliances for this platinum color refrigerator?

Asked by: Gmanweb
Regrettably, there aren't any matching appliances in Platinum Silver that will match this Energy Star® Qualified LG 15 cu. ft. Large Capacity 28” Wide Bottom Freezer Refrigerator, Model # LBNC15221V exactly. The Platinum Silver finish has a shinier appearance than our regular Stainless Steel Appliances but if not placed side by side, you may or may not be able to tell the difference. If possible, you may want to compare them in a showroom to get a better self-assessment...^IFV

What is the outside material ? It says Platinum Silver for colt. Is it stainless or some other material ? Will amagnet stick to it ? Will White ever be an option ? I prefer no ice maker so there is more freezer space.

Asked by: NM46
This unit is made with steel and is magnetic. At this time we do not have information to whether or not it will be released in white in the future. ^AC

I’ve read all specs re this product on website, and do not see that doors can be set to open in one direction or the other. Please confirm whether this is an option.
