What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall - a great refrigerator. I've had this refrigerator for two months and love it! It's bright and easy to get to all items. The black stainless doesn't show fingerprints and looks wonderful with my white cabinets. The only improvement I would like to see would be a light when you press the water dispenser, there is a light with the ice dispenser but it's too low to show the water level in a glass and it is hard to see the water level in a darkened room without the light. Can't say I use the Instaview feature much, but the door-in-door is handy. Also handy is the flex drawer above the freezer - works perfectly for snacks and beverages. The three produce drawers allow me to store fruit on one side, veggies on the other with less frequently used items in the center. Getting to the middle drawer requires both doors on the refrig to be opened (as would a single large drawer). It's deeper and protrudes beyond the cabinets more than my side-by-side refrigerator did, but after a few days I stopped noticing. I am enjoying this refrig along with the rest of my new kitchen suite (Range, Microwave and Dishwasher)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed. Easy setup, quiet, tons of room, zero problems. It's about 6 months old now. Design is great with the configurable middle drawer. Ice maker is a bit small but there is only 2 of us and we don't use a lot of ice anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Design of A Fridge I Love this fridge! Very large in size great for holding lots of food! We buy a lot of fresh fruits and vegies and there is so many compartments to put everything that it does not interfere with the shelf area. Love the door in the door feature how you can put everyday items at your fingertips...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flawed design/implementation of instaview Overall, the fridge is ok and the InstaView feature is more useful than I originally anticipated. However, there is a big flaw in the design/implementation of this feature. When someone knock on the door, the door light turns on hence one can see the items inside the fridge. I'd guess there is a vibration sensor built inside the door to detect the 'knock'. But the sensitivity of the sensor was set too high. The door light would turn on 'randomly' without someone touching on the door at all. Even medium level sound in the house could trigger the sensor and turn on the door light. In my case, I could sit across the room and talk in normal voice to turn the door light on. This was cute at the beginning, particularly for my kids, but it quickly turns into annoyance. I contacted the LG technical support and asked whether there is a way to lower the sensitivity of the sensor. I was told all this was normal and expected, and there was nothing they can do to adjust the sensitivity of the sensor. In another word, live with it! So, potential buyer beware. Make sure you won't be bothered by this before buying this fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best refrigerator ever I purchased this at the Sears Hometown store and they deliver install it and immediately my wife and I loved it. It has all the options we would ever want I love the knock knock feature in the best feature about it is if you keep the doors open too long then it will beep because it’s high fission C. I really love the filtering of the water the water taste very fresh so will use that for coffee maker it’s her using bottled water now. Altogether I would give this at this time a full writing of excellent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from wish I could return it I think I looked at too many refrigerators. By the time I bought this, I was caught up in the "sale" & went ahead with the purchase. I was beginning to forget what I was looking for (over-analyzing). WHAT I DON'T LIKE: Even though this thing is huge (#1 reason I bought it), it doesn't seem to hold much more food than my old side-by-side. The shelves in the door aren't adjustable. For whatever reason, these companies seem to think people would prefer a deeper fridge vs a wider one - that's NUTS! I went for the biggest fridge because I have unlimited space & I was planning to design my kitchen remodel around the larger fridge. They need to make standard depth & go wider for those that actually have that option (lots of people). The inside drawers are OK, but there is no humidity control on my model. The front little access spots are handy & a nice use of otherwise wasted space. The middle drawer is "partially" handy, but I find it more of a space waster. If it was able to actually get to freezer temps (which I was deceived into thinking it would), This would be more of a versatile element. I quickly discovered I HATE the bottom freezer drawer idea! Even with its handy internal drawers, it's not an easy one to retrieve items from. Imagine taking your entire freezer full of items out just to get 1 item. That's what happens with this freezer drawer; comparing it to the side-by-side option where it's just the door opening for a few seconds. Design flaw, in my opinion. Their wi-fi thing is a joke - don't buy it for that feature (which I didn't). I was never able to get it to connect. If you are under 5'3" tall or have shorter than normal arms, you may want to pass on this fridge unless, of course, you have talented small children you can toss on the top shelf to retrieve items at the back. WHAT DO I LIKE: The ice (it's cute little cubes), the door-in-door feature (2nd biggest selling point for me). The glass view is a novelty that we have enjoyed & is occasionally handy. It's definitely a crown pleaser! It's quiet (or I have a noisy house & don't notice it). That was the 3rd reason for choosing this fridge - the reviews said it was quiet. The lights aren't annoying like competing brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with a fridge There is so much space in this refrigerator I may have to buy more food! While I thought I had explored every nook and cranny prior to purchasing the fridge I was wrong. There is a small pull out drawer and a shallow pull out tray within the freezer drawer. The tray is absolutely perfect for my husband's ice packs. For years they have been in with the other frozen items and would often stick to the food. The rest of the fridge is roomy. We love the ability to get our frequently used items out without having to open the entire door. However, my husband has found a new toy knocking on the door to turn the light on.

I need the startup wattage consumption for this fridge. Where can I find it?

Asked by: Ron305
In accordance with the National Electrical Manufacturer's Association's specifications which specify that every motor nameplate must show specific items on it, although the surge or startup wattage may not be listed, what might be listed that will help you calculating the startup wattage is the Locked Rotor Current, also called Locked Rotor Amps (LRA), which is commonly found on the motor's nameplate and will be what you can use to calculate the startup or surge wattage. Locked Rotor essentially means the motor is not turning. The current or amps, in this case, have to do with the amount of electrical energy required to start the motor. At the instant the motor is switched on, it is not turning, and draws the maximum current. As the motor starts to turn, the current goes down. This required energy is much greater than the Full Load Amps or Running Amps, which is the current drawn when the motor is running at normal speed under full load. Regrettably, we do not have access to this information. Please contact our Support Center at (800) 243-0000 for assistance with this information...^IFV
