What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this refrigerator I love: Visibility of food in the drawer and on the shelves. Things just don't get lost. Lighting is perfect. That the freezer is on the bottom. No bending over or squatting to study contents in refrigerator or when cleaning, my back thanks you. Temperature control is amazing. Pleasant chime alert for open door. Controls right in front, easy to use and very unlikely to get changed accidentally. Freezer drawers keep the cold air around food and the cold air doesn't fall out when loading or studying contents. Keeps ice very hard. No ice maker. They are a waste of space as far as I am concerned. My husband joked that refrigerators should come with a door front and back, so that periodically the back door could be opened and everything in back could be pushed out. So much is wasted when it is not visible. I think if I needed a larger refrigerator I would seriously consider having 2 of these, with doors that open right on one and left on the other. Best decision I ever made. Wonderful machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG Nottom Freezer Refrigerator Iam very happy with my refrigerator. It is well lit , making finding food easier. It has plenty of space in the refrigerator as well as in the door. Wished that the bottom freezer also had lights. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my sanity! Excellent product! My last refrigerator was a nightmare even though it was new. My new LG is a life changer...no more concussions from hitting my head due to poor design and no more disgusting buildup under immovable shelves! I love my LG even though it is small (due to limited space in my kitchen), its design is wonderful. I can see the food, the lights are on the sides not hidden in the back; I couldn’t be happier! Thank you LG. I searched for months to find a fridge that fit the space. There were so few; I am glad I kept looking!

According to your pictures there are no handle/slots on the right side. The only way I can see to reverse the doors is to rotate 180 degrees and this would put the freezer handle/slot at the very bottom. Please explain.

Asked by: M1key
There are pocket type handles on both sides of the doors, they are reversible. The conversion is a little awkward requiring the refrigerator to be tipped backwards about 30 degrees or so to unscrew the bottom hinge and remove the door.

Do the drawers function when the door is open at 90 degrees? My fridge space is against a wall.

Asked by: Powder Skier
The drawers on the Energy Star® Qualified LG 15 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator, Model # LBNC15221V are functional when the doors are opened 90˚. The refrigerator has a width of 27 5/8" and a width of 29 6/8" with the doors opened 90˚. You need an installation clearance spacing of 4/8" on the sides. You will also need to open the doors wider than 90˚ to fully pull the drawers out for cleaning...^IFV
