Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review I've only had it for a few days. No complaints! I love how bright the lights are, how much storage there is, and how universal it is when it comes to room in the doors and shelving units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect 30" French Door refrigerator I bought this in November and could not be happier. It is unbelievably roomy for a less than 30" refrigerator. The temperature is steady and the alarm will chime when the door is left open too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Refrigerator-Freezer!! We bought this refrigerator last November and took delivery of it the end of December. We were so excited to find a French door style that was small enough to fit our smaller space available. The capacity is very good. The flexibility of the shelves is great, and the two large vegetable/fruit bins and the very large deli tray are wonderful! The ice maker works great, and the ice storage bin is huge. It is so nice to be able to open the refrigerator door and have everything at eye level. The door alarm insures that you have closed the door securely. Also love the LCD lights and the digital temp controls. I think this is pretty clear that we love this refrigerator! It is the best refrigerator we've had in 49 years of marriage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MOST USER FRIENDLY REFRIGERATOR EVER I bought this refrigerator a month ago. I am so happy with it. It is the most "user friendly" refrigerator I have had. The ice maker and the bottom freezer are so easy to access. The French doors make finding everything a breeze. I am soooo happy!!

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.

Could someone tell me the depth of the freezer drawer when it is open? I have a small space and want to make sure the freezer drawer can open all the way. Thank you.

Asked by: sgar913
The specifications on the company site show this ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 21 cu. ft. Large Capacity 30" Wide 3-Door French Door Refrigerator, Model # LFCS22520S as having a depth of 44 3/4" with the door open. The cabinet has a depth of 29". That means the door will extend by 15 3/4" in front of the refrigerator and the freezer door extends about an inch or two shy of the door edge when fully extended...^IFV

 We just bought this refrigerator. Does it have a factory-installed in-line water filter going to the icemaker?… Or… Do I have to install an external in-line filter to this refrigerator if I want to filter The ice maker water? Thx God Bless!

Asked by: Stocksbucks
Hi Stocksbucks. Thank you for purchasing an LG refrigerator. The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 21 cu. ft. Large Capacity 30" Wide 3-Door French Door Refrigerator, Model # LFCS22520W will require an external in-line water filtration system...^IFV

We are having problems getting the shelves to fit properly. They keep tilting toward the center. What are we doing wrong?

Asked by: emsylvester
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator. As these shelves are half-width shelves, it is suggested to check the outer installation track for some obstruction that would keep the connecting hook from settling fully into place. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot the matter further.

Got new refrigerator installed but we turned it on and it has not gotten cold yet and it has been 2 days. Can you tell me what is wrong?

Asked by: BENNIE29
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator. Check the display readings. Does it read normally, or does it still say O FF, even though the unit appears operable? Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot this matter.

Does the LFCS22520S have an automatic shutoff for the ice maker? I can't seem to locate the auto shut off arm. Thanks.

Asked by: reifer1
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator and its accessories. Yes, the ice maker has been designed with an automatic shut-off arm. The diagram on page 28 of your owner’s manual will show the design and location of this arm on the long side opposite of the power switch.
