What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Great product, well made and works great for us with plenty of room
Date published: 2016-08-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best decision we made! We bought this refrigerator 2 1/2 months ago and are still very happy that we did. We purchased this brand because of the ice maker location, in the door and with metal grinding blades. Our hope is that with the ice maker behind an extra door, this will keep the thawing and refreezing of the ice cubes to a minimum and keep the ice maker free of ice jams. We are getting used to catching the heavy left door, where the ice maker is located, before it slams shut. That is taking some getting used to. If that's my only problem, I can live with it. We no longer have children at home but I can see the door being a possible problem w/families. We like the ease of the water dispenser being separate from the ice dispenser. There is a light for the ice dispenser and my husband would like if there was one at the water dispenser as well. He is adjusting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great overall features My husband and I bought this refrigerator a month ago and the delivery was longer than usual. After a 28 day wait, we finally got the fridge. It is outstanding. It is spacious and hard to fill with just 2 people in the household. We are using 4 one gallon water jugs to help fill the extra space that haven't filled with food. The only thing we don't like is that the ice maker is really slow at making ice. In one day I got maybe 2 liters of ice. Other than that, everything else is just what we needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern and Efficient Installed this new unit a couple of months ago and I am still waiting for a problem or a feature I do not love. The ice maker's ice capacity is small, but plenty for my daughter and me, and perhaps the ice is much fresher as a result. We have not yet run out of ice and the summers here are above 100 degrees daily. The value was exceptional and the running sound of this unit is very quiet compared to the one it replaced. The temperature inside the refrigerator is very cold and great for cold drinks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best refrigerator I've ever owned I purchased this LG in June. I had heard from a friend that LG manufactured a good product. After doing the research, I felt comfortable in ordering the LG. I am extremely happy with this refrigerator. It's sleek and beautiful on the outside, and the inside is exceptional. The design is well thought out. The shelves are interchangeable to any configuration one might require. Very sturdy construction. I replaced a SxS with this LG. What a difference. So much room. The freezer sections are roomy, and again, well-designed. I had one small problem after delivery, which was covered under warranty. A screw on the back panel on the refrigerator was apparently stripped during manufacture, which made the shelves wobbly. The LG repairman fixed the problem within minutes. My husband was thrilled that the problem was fixed, since he wasn't giving up this fantastic refrigerator !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing product. We are very happy with the fridge. the same is super spacious and beautiful by inside and by outside. I have to regulate the cold, because there is an area freezada on top of the charger of water and ice. excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whisper quiet! We've had the new refrigerator for a little over a month now and have re-arranged it to fit our needs several times due to summer parties. The adjustable shelves make this very easy and make it seem much bigger. After coming from a side-by-side this design is a welcomed change; no more taking the bottom bin out to accommodate large items like a turkey or salad platter. With the linear compressor the unit operates very quietly. The in-door ice and water dispenser make large pitchers easy to fill. This is our third LG appliance and we are very happy with all of the LG line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best refrigerator ever!!!! We remodeled our kitchen a month ago. I purchased the this refrigerator and am 1,000,000% happy. There's plenty of room. This refrigerator does everything for you except pour your drinks.

Water and ice maker has stopped working it has a code 1-F 

Asked by: Kimbonham
The ER IF code is indicative of a problem with the Icemaker Fan or its motor. This can potentially be resolved by allowing the refrigerator to thaw for about 4 hours, and then reconnecting it. If it does not, then the unit will likely require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

Our ice maker isn't making ice like it use to. It takes hours to get a small glassfull. We changed the proper filter correctly. What could be wrong?

Asked by: Bertdy
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator. It is recommended to check that the water supply is running properly, between 40 and 120 psi on models with a water filter. This information is listed on page 11 of the owner’s manual. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional assistance.

My refrigerator has NEVER made more than 2 glasses of ice even though there is plenty of ice in the dispenser. I have to take the container of ice out and bang it on the counter or get an ice pick to force the ice down in order for it to make 2 glasses?

Asked by: spyder1953
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator and its ice dispenser. It is recommended to check the ice dispenser chute, between uses, to ensure the flap is closing properly, as if it does not, then some of the ice could be melting, then solidifying all the ice into one block. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional assistance in this matter.

Just bought this model and put the new water filter that came with the frig,I get water out of the outside but it's not making any ice. Is there a way to fix or reset ?

Asked by: Malcolmg
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator. If the filter is allowing water to the dispenser, then it is installed properly. It is recommended to check the freezer temperature to make sure the cubes can freeze, and that water is actually making it to the ice maker. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.
