What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Design I bought this refrigerator a couple of years ago and it's still going strong. It has endured quite a bit from my family and it has made it through gracefully. Small issue with the ice maker a year back but LG came through and fixed it right away. Wonderful customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have loved this refrigerator from the day it was delivered. It keeps food fresher for longer than any other I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! We have had this refrigerator for 3 years. The fridge we own previous was extremely noisy. This product is very quiet. It also has a really nice ice maker. After having used it for 3 years we are still very pleased with the unit. When we shop for appliances we look for LG first.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good refrigerator while it last! Almost had it for 3 years and already failed on us. Initially it was misdiagnosed as the compressor, but apparently it was the mother board that was the problem diagnosed by another technician. Even though we spent money on two technicians who gave 2 different diagnoses, we decided to just purchase another refrigerator instead of trying to resolve the problem(s). We didn't realize the first technician wasn't a certified LG technician who is not able to order the parts if it's under warranty. Secondly, It was also difficult to find a certified LG technician within our city.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ice maker always clogs So we've owned this for about 2 years. Here's the lowdown: (all items have been this way since day one). 1. Looks great. 2. Lots of space. 3. Noisy motor. 4. Ice in icemaker clogs near door. Every day, have to take out bin and unclog. The icemaker is worthless to us - as we have to remove it every day to get ice out. The ice at the bottom melts slightly and re-freezes. It's a design flaw. Yes, we've tried everything to mitigate this. Needs redesign/recall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator I absolutely love this refrigerator. Plenty of room for everything and spills are cleaned up easily! I am in love!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ice maker - ice always bridges over Ice in the ice maker always bridges over and will not dispense until you open it up and hit on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've owned this fridge for a little over a month and am very happy with it so far. There is ample storage room in the fridge section and more than enough storage in the freezer section than I will ever need. It is very quiet and for the price seems well built.
