What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with our choice! For years we owned refrigerators with a top freezer and refrigerator on the bottom. My wife pointed out the advantages of this model with French doors and the freezer on the bottom. And correct she was. The LG is well lit top and bottom. The arrangement of shelving is most convenient for our use. The noise level is a bit above our previous unit but that is a minor item. We are well pleased with our purchase and would make it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our LG Fridge We both really like this fridge. Very good lighting, nice adjustable shelves. Easy access to everything. Great buying decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed! We needed standard size capacity in a narrow space and this was perfect! It is very quiet operation (except for the occasional ice dump). Our only negative is that the ice bin is very difficult to remove - it would be much easier if it were only about 1/4" shorter... If you have a smaller kitchen, this is a great option. If you evaluate the weight of appliances you will see that this one is heavier and it is build solidly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size for the space! We have a small kitchen. This fits perfectly and has so much room both refrigerator and freezer space. It is quiet. The freezer door slides open easily. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and roomy I purchased this unit in the blazing hot summer. The unit was installed at noon and by two i had refreshing ice cold drinks!!! The ice plus feature is wonderful produces extra ice in the shortest amount of time by regulating the freezer to coldest temperatures. The unit is compact but very roomy. The storage drawers are great and keep food fresher longer. Great purchase Thank you Melissa

Rated 1 out of 5 by from INEFFECTIVE REFRIGERATOR This refrigerator has never worked properly. It does not cool the inside the way it should. I'm afraid of food spoilage because it just does not chill the food. I have been in contact with customer service and this issue is still not resolved. I would like my money back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with this refrigerator!!! We were desperate for a new refrigerator when our old one quit working after only five years. We looked online and selected this LG French Door refrigerator and are we glad we did. We've had it for about two weeks now, and aside from looking great in our kitchen, it functions beautifully. There's more than enough space in this reasonably sized refrigerator to house an ample amount of foods and beverages. LG is known for producing bottom freezer refrigerators that are reliable, so we're looking forward to enjoying this one for many years to come. Thank you, LG!!!

Can I attach the handles myself so refrigerator can slip through a 33" space?

Asked by: Little Big Ears
Pages 12-19 of the owner's manual for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 22 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator, Model # LFCS22520S has explicit instructions for how to remove/assemble the refrigerator door handles, removing/assembling the freezer drawer handle, removing the left refrigerator door, removing the right refrigerator drawer and assembling them. Please review those pages to assess if you can attach the handles yourself. You can download and print out a PDF copy of the owner's manual from our site, http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-LFCS22520S#manuals...^IFV

Is this model a zero clearance when doors are open? Which models are? My refrigerator needs to go against a wall so need zero clearence for opening door. Thanks 

Asked by: Dahni
HI Dahni. The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG Black Stainless Steel Series 21 cu. ft. Large Capacity 30" Wide 3-Door French Door Refrigerator, Model # LFCS22520D is not a "zero clearance" model. What you are referring to used to be listed a "Door Edge Clearance" for refrigerators. This model has a width of 29 3/4". When the doors are opened 90˚, the width is 38 1/4". THe difference is 8.1/2" meaning that you have a door edge clearance of 4 1/4". Regrettably, the specifications do not include a specification for door edge clearance anymore. We have a total of 74 refrigerators in our lineup that are catergorized as InstaView™ Door-in-Door®, Door-in-Door®, French Door, Side -By-Side, Top Freezer, and Bottom Freezer models. It might be quicker for you to visit our site at http://www.lg.com/us/refrigerators/all-refrigerators review which of these interests you. There are filters on the site that you can use to contrast and compare the refrigerators and use to narrow down your search. The Specifications list the widths for the refrigerators and also lists their widths with the door open 90˚. If those two specifications are the same, then the refrigerator will have what you refer to as "zero clearance"...^IFV

I can not hear the door open warning tone, it is their but not loud enough..

Asked by: Tom Richie
When power is connected to the refrigerator, the door alarm is initially set to ON. When you press the Door Alarm button, the display will change to OFF and the Door Alarm function will deactivate. Please be sure the door alarm is activated. ^AC
