Rated 1 out of 5 by Richard79 Noisiest refrigerator I have ever owned
I purchased this refrigerator 5 months ago based largely on its overwhelmingly favorable reviews. I agree with most of those reviews regarding style, features, and performance. But I have learned to hate it due to the unacceptable noise it makes. I am 70 years old and have no recollection of even being aware of the noise of a refrigerator before. But I have found myself turning up the television volume in the next room to drown out the noise from the refrigerator.
I decided there MUST be something defective about it and I placed a service call. The technician advised me that the noise was completely normal and that "modern day" refrigerators all make more noise than they used to.
I am amazed that nobody else is complaining about this. For me it's a show stopper - so annoying that nothing else matters.
I know I'm in the minority but I have to rate this product as unacceptable - unless you like listening to your refrigerator all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike H. TOTALLY LOVE our LG French Door Fridge ! ! !
My wife and I looked long and hard for a new fridge after a bad experience with another brand that was so terrible we had to return it to the manufacturer.
Knowing what we hated about that other brand machine that we returned, made us super critical as what to look for in a new fridge.
The LG is AMAZING. Best lighting of any fridge we have seen. We LOVE the dual ice makers and the ultra thin -in door ice maker.
We also love that you don't need to use any buttons to select ice or water. You hold your cup against the ice "paddle" to get ice or the water "paddle" to get water.
I was concerned that the cubes in the door might be a bit too small but it turns out they are PERFECT and my sense is the smaller square cubes lead to less clogs as in 10 weeks of ownership we have never had any issues. Our old machine had the larger half moon shaped cubes and the thing would jam and need to be defrosted every 2 weeks. The LG has been trouble free and is obviously well designed.
We can't say enough good things about this fridge. It is bright inside, easy to use, and very functional. The dual ice makers is a big big bonus for this few time you have a party or need to fill up your cooler. If you don't want to use the second ice maker it's has an on/off switch on the front and you can turn it off and use that cube area for additional frozen storage. GREAT IDEA to have on/off switches on both ice makers.
If you buy this unit you will be thrilled with your purchase. I may sound crazy to say but we LOVE this fridge. It works as it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy LG Customer I love this refrigerator!
I like the lighting and space inside both the refrigerator and freezer. It is quiet and has a good layout for groceries. I especially like the dual ice makers. They keep up with our large family and the bottom bin is deep. I love having the top ice maker in the door. It dispenses ice easily. I like having water and ice in the door as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bsoslander1 Love the dual ice maker, deli tray
We love the features of this refrigerator, especially the great lighting, the deli tray and the dual ice makers. I like to blanch vegetables and the extra ice makes it so easy! I also like the settings on the door for temperature, and that it really HOLDS the temp. selected. The large deli tray is big enough to hold eggs, a large selection of cheeses and meats, even tortillas! The small center drawer is handy for holding things like tubes of anchovy and tomato paste, extra butter, and delicate fruits I don't want jostled in the larger drawer.
I'm only giving it 4 stars for quality because occasionally the door ice dispenser locks up and I need to open it and wiggle the metal arm. But all in all so far it's been great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susan The Nurse Love this fridge!!
Super quiet. Very bright inside (great lighting). I like the tiny little extra shelf on the bottom of the right door, too! We've had this refrigerator for about 5 months (from Sears). The refrigerator & freezer are both HUGE. It is solidly built. The drawers are solid feeling and slide perfectly. Almost everything is perfect about it - see below. We really like the 2nd ice maker below in the freezer too. We got the appliance in white and the handles are painted METAL - not cheap plastic. Very classy.
The only problem we have with it is that the exterior paint in the area around the freezer handle was apparently only sprayed on once because there are many tiny spots where you can see through to the layer below. It's hard to see except up close. LG if you could send us a new freezer door in exchange, that'd be awesome.
I highly recommend this appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EAM Love bottom freezer, French Doors, dual ice maker
I am very happy with my purchase. The French doors are great and the space across the width of the fridge is incredible. The fridge is well lit and bright. I love the drawer in the bottom fridge. I can easily find things in my freezer compared to my old side-by-side model. I am back to enjoying my in-door ice & water dispenser which works fine; mine broke on my old fridge. I also decided to get the 2nd ice maker that dumps cubes into the freezer section in the bottom freezer. That's a nice option.
