Frost-Free Refrigerator: How Does It Work?


As a core feature of all LG’s Refrigerators, you can choose any model from our extensive range of Refrigerator units, with the promise that they will be completely Frost-Free. LG’s Total No Frost technology allows air to move through the unit meaning ice buildup in the freezer is prevented.


Explore LG’s range of Frost-Free Refrigerators below, available in a variety of designs, colours and sizes.

1. What is a Frost-Free refrigerator

Today, most refrigerators are self-defrosting. This means what it implies, although frost continues to accumulate inside the refrigerator, it melts automatically. As a core feature of all LG Refrigerators, self-defrosting technology allows for easy use of your Refrigerator, no matter the model or size.

2. How does a Frost-Free refrigerator work?

A Frost-Free Refrigerator can still get condensation in the fridge and a buildup of ice in the freezer, which will need to be defrosted every 6 months. However, LG’s Refrigerator models use state-of-the-art technology, called Total No Frost. This feature cleverly uses fans to move the air, removing condensation in the fridge and preventing a buildup of ice in the freezer, so you always enjoy the full capacity in your Refrigerator and never have to manually defrost the unit.


3. How is Frost-Free different from auto defrost?

Whilst Frost-Free can still allow for ice buildup, auto defrost uses coils to continually melt ice and keep frost at bay. LG’s Total No Frost technology is a level above auto defrost - where cold air is circulated throughout the freezer and refrigerator compartment by a cooling fan, meaning you will always have all the full capacity of the Refrigerator. LG’s Refrigerators with Total No Frost innovation requires no manual work to defrost - removing the possibility of contamination from condensation as well as offering energy and cost savings.

4. The benefits of having a Frost-Free refrigerator (+ LG USPs)

LG’s Total No Frost keeps electricity costs low and our environment greener by saving energy. It has been shown that as little as 0.5 centimeters of frost increases the electricity consumption of the refrigerator by 30%. In addition, the Total No Frost technology ensures even and faster cooling, so you can store food from top to bottom anywhere in the refrigerator, with the knowledge that this will stay fresher for longer.
