Rated 5 out of 5 by Wyoming Definately happy with this purchase!
After our old side-by-side died the week before Christmas, we had to find a replacement, and fast. I had been wanting a French door refrigerator for some time and decided that if I was going to have to purchase a new refrigerator anyway, I was going to get what I wanted.
I love the capacity of this fridge. Am very happy with the separate temperature controls of the storage bins as it keeps our food fresher, longer. Being able to slide the top shelf back to a partial depth is great for the occasional taller items without having to move an entire shelf. Love the fact that they have put storage shelves on the door with the ice maker. Even though these shelves are not deep, they are perfect for condiments so they don't end up hidden behind other items. It is also very quiet. I never noticed how loud the old refrigerator was until we had this one.
We have had some minor problems with the ice sticking in the ice maker but it has not been a major problem to date. We have had the fridge long enough to change the water filter. While it appears to be working properly, it did not reset on the digital display. Have not had a chance to see if there is a problem with this or not.
I like the capacity of the freezer as well. Was concerned about a bottom freezer due to occasional back problems but the height of the handle is good and it open/rolls out easily. I was concerned about the center flap on the upper door as it does not appear to be high quality. Have not had a problem yet. After reading other reviews, I will be more careful about closing the door to prevent a problem.
I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by James This product really has great features.
We have owned this LG Appliance for almost two months, and it is quite large, however, if the bottom freezer was a little smaller which would give you more space in the refrigerator,[Now] THAT WOULD BE AWESOME !!!.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mike in Ogden, Utah Two ugly problems with this refrigerator.
I WANT to love this refrigerator, or even like it, having spent so much for it, but two glaring problems keep me from appreciating it.
1. The hinged strip attached to the left door, and which creates a sealing surface for the RIGHT door when closed does not return to the proper position for the door to be closed on its own, as the designers intended. The spring is so weak that operating the flap is basically a manual operation every time the door is opened. Aggravating, and would have been a disqualifier had I known about it before purchasing. I can see from other reviewers that this is a design problem.
2. The ice maker is a very poor design. We are constantly required to open the cover and stir the ice with the handle of a plastic spatula to break the ice free so that it will dispense. There is no proper ice agitator as with most other ice makers. Very aggravating, and would have been a disqualifier for me if I had known about it. ALSO, and I see that other owners suffer this as well, the ice dispensing chute jams about 50% of the time. You have to reach up into the chute to pull the cover door open manually, which dumps a bunch of ice onto the floor. I've tried cleaning it with vinegar to make sure calcification wasn't the problem, but nothing I've done works. I think the servo that opens the door fully just doesn't work properly 50% of the time.
I would not purchase this model again, and I am, in fact, considering selling it used so that I can buy a properly designed and built refrigerator. If I do that, it won't be an LG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steelerforever Great refrigerator but, needs quality parts.
We're using this refrigerator for 3 years now. There's plenty of space for just about everything. Controlling the temperatures couldn't be easer. Changing the water filter is a snap. The ice maker has started to cause trouble. We seem to always have to unblock the cube discharge when we're asking for cubed ice. The strip between the French doors (door mullion), has to be moved manually just about every-time the refrigerator doors are opened, and then closed. This is because the mullion spring is weak. Made cheaply. The decals, or whatever is use for water, and ice indications on the outside of the left door are completely worn off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amy87 Wonderful Fridge
I absolutely love this Fridge. There is so much space and it does a wonderful job keeping everything cold. We especially like the slim space ice maker which frees up so much room in our fridge. The only thing I would mention is that we noticed the ice tends to get stuck together on occasion and we need to open it up and knock it apart. Not a major inconvenience though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BillM Exactly what we wanted
We've had the refrigerator for a couple of months now, and have no complaints. Lots of room, great temperature control. The space saving icemaker is great. If I could change one thing, I'd divide the wide deli tray into two halves so that you don't have to open both French doors to get at it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by damezcua18 Great fridge and a great pruce
We got this fridge more than a month ago on sale. Great price, love the features, has so much space, and works great. I haven't had any issues with the ice maker like other people have reported, but I also make sure that I completely empty it every couple of days, and then we use the ice from the tray in the freezer.
