Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good frig I love it except for the fingerprints on the stainless steel!! They are a pain in the neck. Other than that, it's a great frig with the basic features that I wanted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Features No place for eggs, door space is limited. Compressor makes strange sounds. Freezer drawer is flimsy. Called LG about compressor, never sent anyone out. Lights inside don't all work. Repair man never came.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator for Narrow Spaces I took delivery of this refrigerator in January 2018. It has run perfectly and has plenty of space. A great feature is the pull out drawer -- I can make a party platter in advance and keep it cool until I serve it. I love the bottom freezer with a large ice making capacity. The surface is easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refrigerator I bought this lovely product in November 2017. I received it a month later. It’s working perfectly. We love it! It looks cute and it’s very energy efficient. This is my second LG refrigerator. I own two in different countries therefore I’m well aware how reliable these appliances can be! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value ,Great Product This is my second LG refrigerator, we purchased this product because we got such good service from the first. The look of the stainless finish caught our eye and the new features just kept coming. I love the French doors with the bottom freezer. You have so much more room and I get excited every time I open the door with the led interior light. They have thought of everything even including clips if you need to make an adjustment to the door height. Another great feature was in moving the deli -drawer to the bottom of the refrigerator, it provides so much extra room and makes it more versatile for adjusting the shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for smaller spaces! We wanted a French door refrigerator, but have a cabinet above where it was to be placed. The height of the cabinet is 68.5” which left us few options. This model fits perfectly, has all the features we were looking for, and is gorgeous! Proof that a smaller space doesn’t mean you are stuck with an old, top freezer model. Excellent product!

Is there coating over the stainless steel? I would like to know because I would like to fix a minor scratch.

Asked by: Dog the bounty Hunter
There is not, LG only recommends you use Weiman's Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish or Cerabryte Stainless Steel Polish and Conditioner. ^AC

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.
