Rated 2 out of 5 by from BEWARE, NO DELI DRAWER! NO DELI DRAWER! VERY DISAPPOINTED! Never even thought for a second, there wouldn't be one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Performance I bought this with some apprehension, but after using it for a while, I have realized that it is the most convenient product I've purchased. I'll buy another...if I ever need to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great refigerator. I have had this refrigerator for about 2 months now and I am very happy with it. My last refrigerator was only able to maintain a temperature of 41 F, at best. This refrigerator runs very cold, about 34 F, and I have even had to turn it up a couple of times. I looked at consumer reports on refrigerators and found LG has a good reputation. Only complaint I have is in the water dispenser, which requires you to have the glass/cup placed carefully under the dispenser to keep from spraying water around the container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful product I'm just in love with my new fridge. Works great and I love all the features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could be great Have had this for a few weeks now. Love the door in door a lot more than I thought I would. The knock twice feature is a gimmick and not all that useful really, but it's still cool. My only real disappointment and the reason it didn't get 5 stars is because the shelf adjustment in the refrigerator section is a joke. That said, there's SO much storage in the door that I'm not used to that the lack of shelf adjustment hasn't been a big deal yet. How much more could it cost to add some shelf supports in the side molds of the interior? Maybe that's how they get some people to step up to the higher priced models, I don't know, but how else could it be explained? And I haven't looked at the higher priced models to see if they're more adjustable, it's just a guess on my part. I still love it. I may just have to adjust to stacking things on one shelf instead of having a truly customizable shelf system. On a minor note, the ice maker seems a bit small and was a concern initially, but even being big ice users it has kept up so far with no problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it Great unit and easy access to see your beverage with a couple nocks on the glass door. Love it. Making a squeaking noice in the front door. Looks like weight on the front panel.

From looking at the manual, there doesn't seem to be a way to turn the light on above the water dispenser??? Why is this missing? The french door model of this same fridge let you have this light on on all the time.

Asked by: Jackie289
We regret your dissatisfaction with the design of this refrigerator. According to our records, this model was not designed with a feature for activating a light all the time.

Where do you store fresh Meat and cold cuts in lsxs26396S?

Asked by: RNuno67
The freezer drawers in the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 26 cu.ft. InstaView™ Door-in-Door® Side-By-Side Refrigerator, Model # LSXS26396S can be used to store wrapped meat, fish, chicken or other items for long-term storage. For cold cuts, you should use an airtight container. Cold cuts lose their freshness quickly once sliced and so you should keep them for about three to five days and packaged meats also tend to last as long after they have been opened so storing them in resealable plastic bags or airtight plastic containers and keeping them in the refrigerator’s meat drawer or toward the back, where it’s usually coldest is the best place...^IFV

Is there a way to have the light on for the glass all the time? Espeically at night, it would be nice to have the option to see the light ON without having to knock if you wanted to. Is there a way or option to keep the light on?

Asked by: Jackie289
I apologize, but no; this refrigerator is not designed to allow the lighting to remain active. Doing so would likely cause some internal overheating to the fresh food compartment.
