What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst customer service EVER! Have had this refrigerator since mid-March and it died 7/29. LG had a tech come out on 8/2 (he was awesome) after 2 1/2 hours on phone with support at LG it still could not be fixed. It is now 8/10 and we still have no idea when the fridge will be replaced and have to call every day with no resolution (we are the ones initiating the contact with LG as they have done nothing!). For such an expensive major household appliance I would expect better service. We are without a refrigerator (3 teenage kids and no fridge!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!!! Have had this refrigerator for almost two months. We absolutely love it.Only thing I really could have used is a second ice maker, If four and a half stars were an option I would have picked that loosing 1/2 star for having to plan in advance for extra ice and empty the main ice bin which is small into the extra storage bin on bottom. Besides that we absolutely love it!!! Lots of bins, and great views of everything/less hunting for things. Plenty of space and organization is easy. The door in the door is great, makes easy access to most common items without wasting energy opening the whole thing. Didn't think we would use the insta view feature as much as we do. Freezer is much better than the last french door bottom freezer we had. I can find my items and much less digging and wasted food that used to get forgotten at the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a refrigerator! My family was offered a chance to receive and review this refrigerator and after reviewing all the features, we were excited to get such an awesome appliance! My other appliances are black so the dark finish fits right in. The finish is fingerprint resistant and looks great even with four people in and out of it all day. I was a bit concerned about how I would use the freezer space. I didn't want a big hole for things to get lost in. No worries there! Lots of freezer space that is well divided and drawers so you can get to everything. The door in door feature is probably our favorite! Just put the things you use most in that space and you can easily grab them. If you have young kids, you could put snacks and drinks there for them. The water dispenser has a much higher flow rate than our previous fridge. Cups are filled really fast! There are different setting options for the drawer-meat, deli, and produce. Multiple lights help you see every part of the space. And there is an air filter for the space as well so no more boxes of baking soda to absorb odors are needed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality, well engineered & beautiful Quality engineering pays off. There is no sound of ice cubes dropping. This unit is blissfully QUIET. The door in door feature will save electricity. Our frequently used items are used in a compartment in the right door, so only that section is opened to grab a single item. It's almost fun to knock a couple times to turn the light on. The vegetable bins are well organized & transparent, so won't "lose" expensive fruits and veggies. There's a nice drawer for cheeses and lunch meats, unlike many less featured units with just a big unorganized box. We love the black stainless steel finish. The exterior of the unit is nicely finished and doesn't require all the polishing of the usual stainless steel. It saves cleaning bi-level nose marks from our greyhound & small terrier that we found on our previous stainless frig. The LG has it all--looks, engineering & organization. Thanks, LG, for developing this refrigerator "system".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Room to spare! I had to replace a still good ten year old refrigerator that my family had just outgrown. I amazed how technology has creeped into some as simple as a refrigerator. Air filter, water filter, Wi-Fi connected. Led lights, even in the freezer! Doors within a door. So quiet, so stylish, so BIG! Lots of room, and I finally get a water and ice dispenser!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Features I took delivery of my new LG French Door-In-Door fridge two weeks ago and I am very happy. So many great features, I get excited each time I use one! I'm very pleased with how the color, Black Stainless Steel, coordinates with my other white appliances, it’s beautiful and works well in my kitchen. The most unique feature is the InstaView Door-In-Door, where you can store frequently used items such as beverages and snacks. When you want to access one of them you simply push the exterior button found on the right door handle and you can reach inside without opening the standard exterior door. Also, when you knock twice on the InstaView Door-In-Door a light comes on inside the refrigerator and you can easily see what you need to add to your grocery list without opening the exterior door. I’m also enjoying the in-door ice and filtered water dispenser, which offers both cubed and crushed ice. It’s so much more user friendly than my last fridge, which frequently spilt water or small pieces of ice when filling a glass. It’s a lot quieter too. If you need a large amount of ice you can access the ice bin, which is located inside the refrigerator door. Just pull a handle located on the left interior door of the refrigerator, which exposes the ice bin, and you can easily remove the entire bin. The ice cubes are smaller than the more standard size my last refrigerator had which I wasn’t sure I would like. However, I’m very happy with the smaller size cubes, which dispense more easily, and are great for filling smaller vessels such as refillable water bottles. Another nice feature is the fridge is equipped with great interior lighting. Bright LED lights illuminate the entire interior of both the refrigerator and freezer making it so easy to see what is inside. I highly recommend the LG French Door-In-Door Refrigerator!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of Room, Features and a Flawless Finish! We received an invitation from LG to review the LFXS30796 30 cu. ft. InstaView Door-in-Door Black Stainless Steel Refrigerator. My husband had been wanting to swap our side-by-side for a french door refrigerator for quite some time. So we jumped on the opportunity. The refrigerator looks nice in our kitchen and goes well with the other appliances which are a combination on stainless steel and black. The black stainless steel finish looks so nice that my husband says we now need to replace or refinish all of the cabinets because they now look shabby and outdated. This should not be perceived as a con it is just the refrigerator looks that good. Things noticed upon delivery of the refrigerator: -Construction of the unit is very solid -The door hinges and doors seem to be very sturdy -The doors have been relatively easy to adjust. While we are still working on the right side door, I believe that is related to the delivery (doors had to be removed) rather than the construction and fit of the door. Fit and finish of the refrigerator: -All the doors fit well -Finish upon unboxing was pristine, there were no marks, no fingerprints, no scratches -Everything inside the refrigerator was well secured. It took quite awhile to remove all of the packing materials and tape after delivery. -Shelving is sturdy and easily adjusted -There is one folding (sliding) shelf that allows you to fit tall items inside of the refrigerator instead of having to place on a door shelf or the item on its side. -Drawers are very sturdy. Operate extremely smooth (they glide as if on silk). -There is a large drawer that goes the width of the refrigerator that has adjustable settings. You have the ability to select Meat, Deli or Produce. This is a great feature as it controls the temperature based on what you select. We use this for Deli mostly. -LG touts the fact that the Black Stainless Steel does not show fingerprints. This is very accurate. The refrigerator has survived two holiday parties and there is not a fingerprint on it. Except for one instance that I will cover in the con portion of my review. -There are two sliding drawers in the freezer allowing you to place small or frequently used items for easy access.. -Lighting is very bright in both the fridge and freezer allowing you to easily see what you are looking for. Operation: -The refrigerator once set and allowed to cool down has operated flawlessly. There have been no warm spots. The temperature is evenly distributed. The freezer holds food well without having cold spots like a side-by-side where if you put the ice cream in the wrong spot it is harder than a rock. Our ice cream will now be edible without having to sit on the counter to thaw for 10 minutes or be placed in the microwave to soften for 10 seconds. -The controls are intuitive and easy to use. -The ice maker works amazingly well. It consistently dispenses whole cubes not pieces like we experienced with our old refrigerator. It is easy to change from cube to crushed and vice versa. -The water dispenser is one of the best features. You can place any height container and still get water. You don’t have to fight to get water in a pitcher or in a pot if you need it. Additionally, you don’t get water all over the kitchen when filling these large containers. -The see through door, on the front, is very convenient. If you strategically place items in it you can not only see what is contained within the door but you can see the right side of the refrigerator as well. With just a couple of knocks on the glass everything is visible. -The water filter is very easy to install and replace. -The drawers and shelves are easily adjusted and removable for cleaning. -You can place a large pizza box inside, which we couldn’t do with the side-by-side. The box lays flat and there is still plenty of space around it. Cons and Things We Would Like to See: -Lack of an iOS App to use the Smart Features of this refrigerator. I contacted LG and they said it is currently in beta so hopefully we will get one soon. Lack of this App has hampered our ability to test out the Smart Feature and provide a review on them. -The cold saver door has a tendency to open on its own. Which if you don’t happen to notice it's open could lead to the door being damaged. -The only place on the refrigerator that appears to attract fingerprints are the control panel and the paddles for water and ice dispensing. -The shelves on the left side door, because of the ice maker, are only able to hold very small items and are not adjustable. -It would be nice to have a second folding shelf. -On the temperature adjustable large drawer, it would be nice if you had the ability to set a specific temperature. We had this feature on our previous unit and it also provided a quick cool mode. Overall, we are very satisfied with this refrigerator; however, we are knocking 1 star off for the lack of an iOS App and the other things listed under Cons. Unfortunately, LG wouldn’t allow us to give a 4 1/2 star review so we are reluctantly giving it a 4. This unit gives us so much more space that we are having trouble filling and organizing it. We took everything that was in our side-by-side and placed it inside and the unit still looks empty. Once the iOS App comes out we will attempt to update this review with the Smart Features. We will enjoy using this fridge for many years.

Auto correct changed my previous question!  How do you control the humidity in the crisper drawers?  

Asked by: Deeniebeenie
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator. According to the information listed on page 41 of the owner’s manual, the control of the humidity level in the crisper drawers is done by adjusting the setting on the drawer between VEGETABLE and FRUIT. The VEGETABLE setting keeps more humid air in the drawer.

I have a 24qft top freezer that continues to pop the GMI breaker when the compressor starts?

Asked by: Flying Dutchman
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator. It is recommended to check the fuse to which this refrigerator is connected. This unit should be on a dedicated circuit, with no other devices drawing away from the 15 to 20 Amp draw on the current. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional assistance.
