The circuit board issue that probably everyone will experience is easily/inexpensively fixed by replacing the soldered in fuse on the circuit board with one from Radio Shack. The wheels on the draws will also most likely come off due to plastic engineering. My wife has hated this ref since we purchased it about 6 yrs ago

After having owned this refrigerator for several years, ice started building up in the floor of the freezer about every 3 weeks, and we needed to defrost it. We called an LG approved repair service technician. He fixed the problem, which had to do with a drainage system, which is a closed system (in other words, nothing we caused, but was apparently inherent in the design).

Do Not Recommend
I have had the power board go out twice in two years and I have it on a surge protector. Even the technician can figure out why this continues.

My current refrigerator is dead and it is noted online as common LG refrigerator problem. I have power but the refrigerator has no power, no light, etc. The technician told me that the board is dead and has to be replaced. All of our food is melting and warming up. Cleaning up spoiled food is not fun – it was not worth a penny. This is the least reliable refrigerator that I have ever seen. I had another problem with the main fan, which died about 6 months ago and all the food spoiled. LG – has to improve product quality! It was a big mistake that I bought it for the design.
