What People Are Saying

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent features! I ordered this refrigerator in November & it was back ordered until January 26th. However, there was nothing wrong with my old refrigerator so it was worth the wait. I love the lighting inside. Everything is at eye level in the fridge part & easily spotted with the bright lighting. The only noise it makes is when it is dumping ice & filling up to make more. I enjoy the pull out tray in the freezer, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it My friggie was delivered 1/25/18 and I love it. Hard getting used to opening two doors but that's ok. I really like the frig on top, so much easier for a geezer to see and use. My only suggestion is that I wish the freezer door would pull all the way out and not be restricted by the pull out drawer. That is a minor complaint... Thanks for making a great friggie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Mid-Size French Door Model We have had this frig for about a month now. Love the features, door alarm, LED lighting, shelf positioning, Glide N Serve drawer and temperature displays. Never had a bottom freezer and its so much better than a top model. You can actually see your food without taking everything out to find something. Only drawback is some compressor vibration which results in a little more noise than I'm use to. Maintains accurate temperatures (checked with additional thermometer).

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

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.
