What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Engineering I purchased the 30796s and had it delivered 2 days ago. It replaces a 30776s that had catastrophic cooling failure after 2 years and 1 month. I had hoped cooling issues would have been better addressed in the more recent model, but that does not appear to be the case. After 24 hours, it finally reached safe temperature to add food. However, after putting just a couple bags worth of food products in the refrigerator, flex drawer and freezer it took 7+ hours to finally reach safe cooling levels. This morning it appeared to be fine. Mid-day we went shopping and added 4 bags of groceries. That was 6 hours ago that we loaded today's groceries and the freezer (set at 0) has turned the ice cream into a shake and the refrigerator and flex drawer are both hovering at 50 degrees (I have checked every hour; they are set at 35 and 29, respectively). I think this is probably the product that influenced the saying about putting lipstick on a pig - and I kissed it twice. Sad, but true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAST OF A FRIDGE I bought this fridge because I wanted the biggest fridge space I could find. I got what I asked for. This fridge holds everything I need it to hold and more. This fridge replaced my side by side that was 12 years old. Man, things have changed. I hope this one will last as long. Love the door in door feature. I do wish the ice maker made more ice. I guess I will keep a bag in the freezer for when we have company. But, I wouldn't give the Beast up for a larger ice maker. So far so good. I'll let you know if my bubble gets busted.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought 2 weeks ago, everything seems ok, nice and roomy but the left door where the ice maker is SLAMS-- very bad feature. Looks like this ref. will not last long due to the slamming of the door everytime you close it. Looks like it was not worth the money that I paid for this refrigerator

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great, huge refrigerator My wife and I were shopping for a French-door refrigerator and compared this LG to several competing brands. This LG was our favorite by far. The drawers slide more smoothly, the space dividers are more versatile and easier to adjust, and there are many options to organize the contents within the refrigerator. We keep everything we use for breakfast behind the right-hand, door-in-door and all our lunch and snack items in the drawer above the freezer, so we rarely have to open the entire fridge to get something. And it is so big, the two of us may never fill it up. I also like the design of the icemaker which is hidden in the left door; it's compact and you can still store items on the door. And you can get either water or ice without pushing a button to select which you want. Now for the one negative we have found -- the reason I gave this fridge 4 stars instead of 5: the ice and water it dispenses taste absolutely awful! We have run many gallons of water through the filter to both the ice and water dispensers, but the water is still undrinkable. The ice is usable until it starts to melt, and the melt affects the taste of whatever it is cooling. I don't know if a new filter would remedy this problem. Otherwise, this is an outstanding refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended Great compartments throughout fridge and freezer. Extra shelf useable as freezer or fridge gives great flexibility. Temperature very consistent throughout Light is door is a nice to have but not essential Wish the shelves in left door were wider but overall very happy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features, dislike cheap latch, door closure Had this for a week, love the frig. With some exception, hate the internal drink panel door lock, it keeps unlatching it self. Its pretty flimsy. Closing the door does not have soft close or soft return. Otherwise I would have given this frig a "5" and questionable in recommending to friends. If you can fix this, than definitely I would recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Practical Beautiful frig however, not practical! Water reserve is 11oz so you will only get 1...yes....only 1 cold glass of water. Ice container. ..don't try and make Margaritas, One blender and your ice is done! Shelving does not capacitate wine bottles unless you lye them down or remove an entire shelf. I honestly would have made another purchase choice if knowledgeable of these factors but who carries a wine bottle to Home Depot to see if it fits. The water reserve amount is not mentioned in manual either.

How long does it take to fill the ice bin?

Asked by: Sewcreative
The Ice Maker in the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 30 cu. ft. InstaView™ Door-in-Door® Refrigerator, Model # LMXS30796S will produce 70~182 cubes in a 24-hour period depending on freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, number of door openings and other operating conditions like the water pressure. The water pressure must be 40~120 psi or 276~827 kPa or 2.8~8.4 kgf/cm² to produce the normal amount of ice and size of cubes.
