What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 152 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Has a ton of storage. Easy to clean. Much easier for me to find my frozen items in the drawer than my old side by side. July 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Refrigerators lasted a long time so it was many years ago since we bought our last fridge. We were amazed at the progress in the technology and design of this new fridge which we bought as replacement of the old one. This is an excellent fridge and we are very happy that we bought this one. July 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by VERY NICE I am coming from a side by side that came with the house and I was never crazy about. I like the French doors makes it easy to see what is in the frig, I am glad that I bought the model with only 2 side by side drawers not the 3 drawers (I think 2 the drawer maybe last years model not sure) and didn't listen to the salesman and go with the 3 drawer. The only 2 things I don't like about this frig is the stainless steel is not very stainless it shows every finger print and I am the only one in the house I have cleaned this frig more in the last month than the prev frig in a year and I think this frig is very loud. Over all I am glad that I purchased it. July 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT fridge!! I helped my mom buy her NEW fridge at our local home depot. When the fridge was in our house, from day one we have truly enjoyed it's features, and it really DOES keep food fresher, longer. This is our first french door fridge, we look forward to many years of usage. The design of the ice and water dispenser, you can hold a large size cup to it, which does fit. I am sure there are other features I haven't yet discovered?, but as I learn more, I'm sure I will appreciate those features. July 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value- good quality We've had the unit for about a month now, and everything is working fine. My wife loves the bottom freezer, and the French doors, which makes more room for everyday items on the top shelves. One design flaw is that the refrigerator does not display actual temperature- only set temperature. How do you know if there is a problem ? This feature needs to be added - even my old 15 year refrigerator had it ! July 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fridge What a difference, had a side by side that worked well but seemed it had no room. With this one, tons of space, even put frozen pizza's in the freezer laying flat, unheard of with the old one. Really quiet and great ice maker. LG hit the spot with this fridge July 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Huge amount of room, stylish Great fridge, lots of shelfs, very deep, ice makes quickly; Stainless finish is easily smudged, but can be quickly cleaned with window cleaner and a lint free cloth July 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So much space! I love this refrigerator! We replaced a side by side and have so much more room now. Love the large bins and our fruit and vegetables last so much longer. It is so quiet and the only noise is the ice cubes dropping in the bin on occasion. Love the freezer drawer and we can store so much more with easy access. We had replaced both our microwave and stove with LG products and because we were so pleased with them, we decided to go with LG for our refrigerator. It looks beautiful in our kitchen with the stainless steel finish. July 6, 2014

I use either a microfiber cloth or also have a specialty "rag" that's made of polyester that works really well with just plain water & doesn't streak.

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.

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.

Answers

Answer: 
If your entrance door is too narrow for the refrigerator to pass through, remove the refrigerator doors and move the refrigerator sideways through the doorway. Use two or more people to remove and install the refrigerator doors. Failure to do so can result in back or other injury. Pages 13-18 of your owner’s manual provides step by step instructions on the removal and installation of each of the three doors of the unit.
