How to Measure & Fit Right

The refrigerator installed in the space The refrigerator installed in the space
Use this four-point plan to ensure your LG fridge freezer will be the perfect fit for your home:

1. Take accurate measurements of the space where you plan to install your LG fridge freezer. Remember to factor in any skirting boards when measuring width and depth, and ensure you have access to a power socket.

2. Add in some extra space around your LG fridge freezer to allow for ventilation. We recommend a buffer of at least 50mm on all sides including the top to allow for efficient operation.

3. Check you will have sufficient space around your Fridge Freezer to open the doors once installed. LG’s Combi models come with reversible doors for added flexibility of installation.

4. Think about how you will get your Fridge Freezer to its final destination. Will it fit through doorways / up the stairs / inside a communal elevator? Measure and plan the access route beforehand or installation could cause headaches. Doors are removeable on certain models for ease of installation / access.

Choice of Colours & Finish

Their sheer size makes fridge freezers generally one of the most visible appliances in the kitchen, so it’s important to get the colour and finish right. LG offers a menu of modern neutral options to ensure you can find a fridge freezer that either matches existing appliances or provides a stylish contrast.

Ice & Water Dispenser

Instant access to chilled, filtered water and ice, whenever you fancy it? Yes, please!

You don’t even have to connect your LG fridge freezer to the main water supply to enjoy ice and water on tap.

Plumbed
Plumbed LG fridge freezers connect directly to your water supply through a filter for a secure supply of clean, chilled H₂O on demand. Cubed, crushed and artisan ice can also be dispensed, depending on the model.

Non-Plumbed
When it’s not possible to access a water supply for your appliance, choose one of our non-plumbed models with a built-in refillable water tank connected to the door-mounted dispenser. Simply keep the tank topped up to enjoy the luxury of chilled water on tap.

Those thick layers of frost inside your freezer are a real headache – not only do they eat into precious storage space, they can also compromise the freezer’s performance.

LinearCooling™

Reducing the fluctuation of temperatures in your fridge is key to keeping your food fresh and making it last longer. LinearCooling™ is LG’s propriety technology which reduces temperature range within your LG Fridge to just ±0.5℃ over time - to help keep your food at peak freshness for up to 7 days! It achieves this thanks to the strategic location of sensors around the interior of your fridge.

DoorCooling+™

In many refrigerators, the door is an area where the temperature can vary, but not with LG’s DoorCooling+™ technology which ensures all parts of your fridge are evenly cooled. Extra vents close to the ceiling of your LG fridge deliver a whoosh of cold air, like a curtain of chill, to maintain an even temperature across every zone. That means you can be confident that your food will be stored safely until you want to use it.

FRESHConverter™

Storing your foodstuffs in the optimal environment is key to extending their lifespan as well as preserving goodness and flavour. That’s why LG fridge freezers incorporate the FRESHConverter™ slider control system - so while the rest of your LG fridge is kept at a consistent temperature, you can make micro-adjustments to the temperature inside the FRESHConverter™ meat/fish/vegetables box according to your needs.

Freshness in Veggie Box

Moisture is a key factor in maintaining freshness for your fruit and vegetables. The FRESHBalancer™ box in LG fridge freezers is fitted with unique design features like our simple to use fruit (less moisture) / vegetable (more moisture) slider. Simply slide between venting options to adjusts the internal conditions depending on what you’re storing inside.
Look out too for LG’s Moist Balance Crisper™ design which uses a special lattice pattern on the box cover to enhance moisture retention.

For Your Energy Efficient Home

LG Inverter Linear Compressor

LG fridge freezers boast market-leading energy efficiency. In the forefront is our Inverter Linear Compressor Technology which delivers lower energy consumption, noise and vibrations.

Find out how it works.
bg-w-d bg-w-m
  • A compressor is the means by which cold air is pumped around inside your fridge. Its operation has a major effect on the energy consumption of your appliance and its ability to maintain an even temperature throughout. Even cooling keeps your food fresher for longer, retards spoilage and thus reduces food waste.

    LG’s Smart Inverter Compressor technology uses a digital inverter to adjust the speed of the compressor, enabling your appliance to better maintain a consistent temperature compared with a single-speed compressor.

    Moreover, our Inverter Linear Compressor replaces the rotating motion of a conventional compressor with a simpler linear movement, significantly reducing friction. The result? Reduced energy loss, lower noise (35dB) and fewer vibrations from your LG fridge freezer.

    Cold air is pumped quietly as required around the interior of your LG fridge, delivering chill to the areas where it is needed, as it is needed. Food stays fresh for longer, you waste less and your energy bills do not suffer.
