What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great storage vision. We purchased our appliances two months ago and are quite pleased with everything for now. The concerns we have had to deal with is that the belly (sides) of the fridge bulge out so installation was a slight problem. We needed to trim the counter top off to make it fit. The only other problem we had is that the ice dispenser mechanism freezes up blocking the flow of the cubes to the discharge chute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fridge!! I have been very happy with everything about this refrigerator. Having the ice maker in the door allows so much more shelf space. The drawers roll so smoothly. The option of the second ice maker has really been helpful a few times. And lastly, the black stainless steel is beautiful!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Refrigerator! Quiet, Looks Great I bought this refrigerator 3 months ago and could not have purchased a better brand and model. Quiet running, makes ice fast, lots of storage throughout. The second ice maker is great for parties and filling coolers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG double door, bottom freezer, water dispenser I fell in love with this refrigerator before I ever bought it! I wanted a water dispenser that had separate ice and water dispensers. It is a waste of time having to push a button on other refrigerators to fill a glass with ice, then push and get water. After using my new LG refrigerator one day I knew the upper and lower ice makers were perfect for my husband and I. No more stale ice. When guests come I can turn the lower ice maker on and have all the ice I need. I boldly recommended this model to folks looking at appliances at our local Lowe's. Thanks, LG, for a perfect refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the french doors and tall dispenser My husband and I bought our LG French Door refrigerator and freezer and we love it. The refrigerator holds our food and has actually helped us organize our food better so we are more efficient. We also love the tall dispenser for ice and water. We can fill water pitchers and glasses. Great job LG.

Where are the humidity controls for produce

Asked by: Edmax
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator and its features. The HUMIDITY CONTROL should be located on the front edge of the shelf immediately above the CRISPER drawers. An additional description of this can be found on page 32 of the owner’s manual.

The filter light says 1 month but it seems to me that the water is tasting funny does that mean we are a month behind in changing the filter or we need to change it in a month 

Asked by: ShawnaBuchman
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator and its features. The indicator is stating that the filter should be changed in a month. However, if there are more impurities in the water supply than normal, then it is possible that the filter might need to be changed sooner than expected.

What should my refrigerator temp. For freezer & refrigerator be set at?

Asked by: Cams mom2
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator. 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.
