What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Family Refrigerator We purchased this 3 French door refrigerator after months of researching and reviewing ones that were on the market. We are so please not only with the value that we received for but for the efficiency and excellent quality this refrigerator is bringing to our family. We all are amazed at the lighting in this fridge and the ease in control of temp and movement of shelf space. This fridge also has a great look and appeal and easily cleaned up. I would highly recommend this to any one looking for a french door refrigerator.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working after 18 months You should know I saved for this fridge for over a year to purchase it. Stopped cooling and freezing after purchasing 18 months ago. Had a Technician out 5 times. Replaced several parts, cost lots of money and several unpaid days off and it is still not working. I have not had a working refrigerator for 3.5 months. Have contacted LG once by phone and twice by email without much help. LG couldn't even get a recommended repair person to me. At this point I will have to purchase another fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Refrigerator!! I wanted to wait awhile before writing a review...it's been almost 9 months...and we still love it! The things I really like: the black stainless exterior was well-worth the extra $100. I buy a lot of produce at Costco and the two veggie bins hold a lot more than I expected. The cheese drawer (at least that's how we use it) holds so much! We love the alarm on the door too in case it doesn't get closed all the way. I was prepared to not like having a drawer freezer (as opposed to the shelves and smaller drawers in my old side-by-side), but the freezer has been great! I have liked it a lot more than my old fridge. Rather than use push back the top right shelf to allow taller containers below (like 64 oz apple juice), I lowered the middle shelf. That way you can fit more on the top shelf and not lost a half of a shelf. There really isn't anything I don't like about it. It took some getting used to that the two doors are weighted differently...one closes easily by itself and the other requires a little more force. I called the installer when it was first installed and was told that's just how they are. But, we're used to it now. The only other thing to know is it doesn't hold a lot of ice unless you transfer some down to the freezer, but this has never been a problem for us. I love the water dispenser that can easily fill a big pitcher or water bottle, although first-time users have ended up with water on the floor thinking you push it with your hand. I highly recommend this fridge! Great storage, light and good door storage too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the space Love the amount of space of this refrigerator and huge freezer. Very convenient shelving. Love the drawers too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor ice maker design 1 year 2 months into ownership and the ice will not dispense from the ice bin. It goes through a defrost cycle and melts the ice and refreezes the ice into I big lump. Customer support stated “you should have bought an extended warranty.” There is nothing they will do beside give a number to local repair company. I gave it 2 stars because it does keep stuff cold. Shelving is awkward. Hard to keep outside clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator at a Great Price We purchased this unit to replace an old side-by-side GE refrigerator, and we have been very pleased with the appearance, functionality, and design of this french door model. We highly recommend this model to anyone looking for a new refrigerator at a fair price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slow on ice First off we really like this refrigerator, spacious, solid, plenty of drawers, quiet. However if you use a lot of ice this is not your refrigerator, just between my wife and I it has a hard time keeping up unless we keep it in their freeze zone, but it still struggles to keep up. We might use a little more ice than normal, we drink a lot of ice water, but for a larger family, you would probably run out of ice.

1) Which refrigerators have the smudge/fingerprint resistant stainless steel? In particular, I am looking at LFXS30766S, LFXS29766S, LFX28968ST, and LFXS30726S. 2) What is the significance of S vs ST suffix? Thanks,

Asked by: Mpressler
Models LMXS28626S & LFXS30786S would be equipped with the smudge resistant stainless steel finish. Our model numbers undergo changes for numerous reasons. A unit ending in S/ST alike would indicate the item has a stainless still finish.

I am having a issue with moisture build up. Believe drain line is blocked. Having trouble locating drain line. Lost manual, can you please tell me where to locate drain line?

Asked by: Scott w
The drain line is located underneath the evaporator. We do not recommend removing the back panel of the refrigerator to access this. The line may just be frozen, you can try increasing the temperature of your refrigerator for a few days to see if this resolves the issue. If the problem still persists, we would recommend contacting a technician for more assistance. To schedule a repair please see: http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair-service/schedule-repair-us Or for a list of service centers in your area please visit: https://www.lg.com/us/support/repair-service/find-repair-provider If you are still in need of assistance, please reach out to our support team via Twitter @LGUSSupport

How do you get the refrigerator to pull away from the wall to clean coils in back

Asked by: GrandmaPt
Depending on the setup, the refrigerator should be able to pull away from the wall. It is suggested to put down some protective covering under the feet of the refrigerator to prevent the unit from damaging the floor. Remember to always unplug the unit before cleaning.
