What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved this style refrigerator We had this model in our home for 3 + years and it was part of the sale when we sold. I couldn't wait to find another one that would fit this smaller space in our new house. The only problem we ever had was dispensing the water from the front of the door. It seems like every guest that tried to use it sent water all over the floor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Designed, Looks Great, Cold...One Concern Owned this LG fridge for about one year. Love nearly everything about it, but have serious concerns about the icemaker. It failed once at about month 4. Called and was talked through reset...."ice in 24 " - 24 hours, really? I didn't believe it was going to work, but I was wrong. At around month 7 again, no ice. Found the reset button , pushed it, nothing happened. Waited 24 hours called LG. Icemaker dead. Factory repair 2 days later took less than 10 minutes. I asked the repair guy "How long do icemakers last, years, months....?" Slight pause, "Months, a few months". Me, " After the 1 year warranty expires, and I need to order one and install it myself, how what is the price? " He quoted $240 but they can be had online for $180. It looks as though there was a part revision which replaced a 3-conductor plug with a 6-conductor design. Which one I had and now have, I don't know. If the next failure is in less than 2 years, I plan to ask for a no charge replacement icemaker. I encourage other owners to do likewise. Hoping that won't happen, and otherwise believe an excellent product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big and Nice We bought this on 9/3/2015. It s big and roomy. It keeps temperature well and the water / ice both work well. 1 problem we have with it is a design flaw with the crisper drawer on the right hand side. You can not open it without opening both doors. The center piece between the doors stop it about 3 inches out. We probably would have looked at a different model if we noticed while shopping for it. Other than that I personally love it and my wife likes it. Remember it's stainless and needs to be wiped down almost daily. I would recommend it but would inform them about crisper. Could be a deal breaker for some but the price was right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Wonderful I "love" this French door refrigerator. It looks great...and the ice maker is nice and quiet...although not real big, plenty big enough for 3 of us using it. The refrigerator part is much larger than the side by side I had before buying this one. The freezer drawer is even larger than I thought it would be. It was well worth what I paid for it .I am VERY pleased!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A few things Great look and does it's job of keeping my food cold. I love the look and the convenience of having ice and water in the door. Very few cons, but worth noting for LG to see if they can improve. The middle of the doors can get jammed if it doesn't line up correctly. Just a pain when you in a hurry. The ice can splatter out at times and the inside doors need more storage space. A few more places to put condiments and larger drinks would be nice. I am still very happy I purchased!!

This was in a home I bought and I have no manual on it. What is the optimum temperature for both fridge and freezer?  I just had to defrost the freezer and pull out a huge slab of ice. I'm also getting condensation in between the doors. 

Asked by: Amanda Allen
It is recommended that, when the unit is first installed, the freezer temperature should be set to 0 degrees Fahrenheit, while the refrigerator should be set to 37 degrees. Once the unit reaches these temperatures, you may change the setting to however you would prefer.

Every time we are opening both doors the fridge slides out of its spot. Can I lock the wheels or do something to stop the fridge from rolling. I have the 3 door 730L fridge

Asked by: Braashful
On our fridge, it has front stabilizing "screw down feet" right next to the rollers under the front, I'm guessing your fridge may have the same... I screwed them down till the stabilizing feet took some of the weight off of the rollers and this prevented my fridge from rolling forward anymore when pulled on.

What product do you recommend to clean the stainless steel with?  Is there a specific brand?

Asked by: Steveoc2
Stainless Steel finishes can be cleaned with warm water and a mild detergent. When cleaning Stainless Steel, it is important that all detergent be rinsed off and the unit is wiped dry. Also, it is important to wipe in the direction of the grain of the metal. If a Stainless Steel Cleaner is preferred, it is important to follow the cleaner’s directions. These instructions are provided with the cleaner, and vary by cleaner. We have tested and recommend the use of the following Stainless Steel Cleaners: Simple Green Stainless Steel Cleaner; Ceramabryte Stainless Steel Appliance Cleaner; Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish; Magic American Products: Stainless Steel Magic (Aerosol Spray); Ceramabryte Stainless Steel Polish and Conditioner; KitchenAid Stainless Steel Cleaner.

The icemaker is locked in the ice release position and eventhough I have pushed the button under the ice maker as stated in the troubleshooting video it does not move. Can you please help me?

Upon installation, the service guys apparently threw away the "filter by-pass plug" when they put in the water filter. Where or how do I get a replacement? Honestly, your website was not helpful. Neither was the store I purchased the fridge from.
