Rated 5 out of 5 by This refridgerator is well designed The refrigerator is great. Has plenty of room for frozen and cold items and makes ice quickly and has extra storage for more. It's quiet and seems very efficient. August 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent in all ways I am VERY pleased with the space, compact ice maker, LED lighting and quietness. The controls and settings are intuitive and easy to use. August 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by l G has not let me down We chose this bright beautiful fridge after reading all reviews available and our satisfaction with our L G washing machine. called in one time to service department for a minor issue they were great. Guess what they can test the fridge by you placing your phone right up to fridge and pressing a button while they listen. We would have loved a tilt out freezer door and yes stainless steel is high maintenance .Please keep up good work we need companies with your integrity L G will be our next TV purchase August 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by the refrigerator is exactly as said the refrigerator is beautiful. i really love the features of it. I like how the ice maker is in the door. have alot of space inside. I am glad i bought this product. I would recommend to a friend. August 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by best fridge ever I've only had this fridge for about a month but it's the best I've ever owned.so much space inside for a family of four.Love the bottom freezer easily accessible.The outside in stainless is gorgeous but does leave a lot of fingerprints...Love LG wouldn't buy anything else. August 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent quality, great features and performance. I've only had this refrigerator for a couple of months but so far, I love it! It has a large interior that stores everything conveniently. I like the freezer on the bottom which also stores everything and works smoothly. The only thing I don't like is the amount of cleaning/polishing to maintain the stainless finish appearance. If you don't want to spend an inordinate amount of time cleaning it, think about purchasing your appliance in a different finish. August 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it Easy to clean, in and out. Easy to adjust shelves. Spacious and quiet. Wish the water was colder. August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is the ultimate in "all' you need We have had LG Kitchen Appliances for several years now and love them! This Refrigerator truly is a customers dream. It has everything you need and it's style reminds me of "sleek and silk". It has enough room to fit everything in and all sizes and the "easy pull" drawer is another great feature. My husband and I recommend this LG Product to all. Go buy it - you will be glad you did. August 1, 2015

Answer: 
Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do NOT use window sprays, abrasive cleansers, or flammable fluids. These can scratch or damage the materials.

Answer: 
Ice is made in the automatic icemaker and sent
to the dispenser. The icemaker will produce
12 cubes per cycle—approximately 120 cubes
in a 24-hour period, depending on freezer
compartment temperature, room temperature,
number of door openings and other operating
conditions.

Answer: 
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.

How do you raise refrigerator and freezer temperatures?

How do you raise the temperature in the refrigerator and freezer? I have pressed the freezer and refrigerator temperature control buttons and it sets it to a lower temperature. It's not very clear in the owner's manual how to adjust these temperatures. Thanks kindly.

Answer: 
Adjust the temperature in the REFRIGERATOR compartment by pressing the REFRIGERATOR button. When the temperature setting gets to the limit of its cycle, it will start over at the cycle’s other extremity. The operation of the FREEZER is performed in the same fashion, with the FREEZER button.
