What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG fridge I love this fridge. I was not sure I was going to like the French door with the freezer on the bottom, but I do. You can see everytime you have in the fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the glide and serve drawer . I love the large capacity of the veggie and fruit bins. Also, the ease of cleaning the shelves. I also love the sliding top shelf in the freezer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This was the worst purchase ever I got this French door refrigerator and two months later it broke down and LG still can’t fix it not happy

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very disappointed - very hard to get "wrappings" off product. Shelves are hard to move - just wanted to have room for half gallon of milk to fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far Had the fridge a week. Fit a tight space. Was hard to find a stylish fridge for the space - most were old school top freeze designs. Chilled down as expected. Space is good. Doors can hold large containers. Enough shelf adjustability for the size/design. Bottom freezer is straight forward. Ice machine is working so far as expected. Louder than the big super expensive fridge at primary residence but fraction of cost. Opening both French doors a must to do anything but grab a beer from the door storage. Finger prints are fairly noticeable which may bother some. Hopefully it keeps working as it is. I don’t like fridge drama.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern sleek looking I like the adjustable glass shelves, and adjustable door compartments. The internal light in the fidge and in the freezer are great! There's a lot of storage in the pull out freezer door, that has divided shelves in freezer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right! We've had this fridge for a few weeks now and it is great. We've rearranged the shelves to our liking and, for now, it's clean and clear of science experiments.

Is there an extension for the shelving in the refrigerator? Sides have runners for shelves but not enough in center to hook shelves ?

Asked by: James17112
It doesn't appear there are extra shelves that may be purchased for your refrigerator. However, if you would like to review available parts and accessories for your unit, these may be purchased through our authorized parts distributor:

Hello. Have had this for just over a year. Ice is building up over the inlet that lets water into the ice maker which blocks the water, thus. No ice. Is there something I can do to fix this?

Hi, I received this LG French Door refrigerator last weekend. It works great but I'm having an extremely hard time removing smudges /fingerprints off the front, which was never an issue with my prior stainless steel model (not LG). What do your recommend?

Asked by: Kia A
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator. We would recommend the use of a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.

We have full width shelves and are unable to remove them to clean because the doors get in the way.  What is the best way to fix this without taking the doors off?

Asked by: BeauBingham
Hi! We regret to read that you have experienced some issues trying to remove the shelves from your ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 22 cu. ft. Large Capacity 30" Wide 3-Door French Door Refrigerator, Model # LFCS22520S and apologize for any inconveniences. Fortunately, there is a solution to removing them without having to resort to taking the doors off! On this model, the split shelves inside the refrigerator were replaced with a single full-width shelf during production. As you have already experienced, the doors do not open wide enough to allow you to remove the shelf. However, the right refrigerator door can actually open wider to allow you to remove the full-width shelf. To open it wider, open both refrigerator doors fully until the stopping position. Firmly lift the right refrigerator door up and turn the door counterclockwise about 25 degrees until it reaches an angle of about 155 degrees. YOu will then be able to remove the full-width shelf...^IFV

How do I change the temperature on my LG lfcs22520b/00

Asked by: Charlesh80
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator. The temperature settings are on loop control. Continue pressing the REFRIGERATOR button until it reaches its lowest setting. Press it again, and the setting should jump to its HIGHEST setting. The same would work for the FREEZER.
