What people are saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent design. Hope this last longer than the 1 LG prompted me to write this review after about 1 week of ownership and I feel I owe it to share my experience with others. First, this is our second LG refrigerator as the first one (basically the same model minus craft ice) failed due to restrictions in the sealed system and stopped keeping cool after 3 years of operation. Thankfully LG refunded us the depreciated value of our original purchase, so points for them there. The extended warranty was useless. So far the new refrigerator is working well. Easy to use like the last one. We can tell some of the newer changes to the model that are well designed. The craft ice balls are smaller than I imagined and yes... Death Star spheres have been the output so far. Regardless we like the instaview and overall design. Hopefully this one lasts longer than 3 years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Design Flaw in Cooling Compressor Cooling compressor has failed after 3 years 11 months. It has been 2+ weeks without a refrigerator working. Repair scheduled in next few days. Due to all the known problems and complaints, LG has been kind enough to cover the parts necessary to repair cooling. However, I have to pay the repair service for labor cost. Read the REVIEWS before purchasing the LG refrigerator.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 4 doors are great Overall features are great. We really like the separate water and ice controls, the drawer in the middle of the refrigerator, and the freezer on the bottom. The glass window with the knock to light feature is handy and the grandkids love it! Two complaints are the ice maker has had issues and the compressor went out after 3 and a half years. LG covered the compressor with both parts and labor, but it should not have gone out that quickly.

Will there be a new model with the same features including the instaview? This seems to be sold out now and we fell in love with it. We are building so unable to buy until our new house is done which may not be until mid to late December.

Asked by: MrsO
Regrettably, LG does not divulge information on future products unless they make an official announcement or unveil and showcase the products at trade shows like CES in Las Vegas which is held in January every year, or at IFA in Berlin which is held in September every year. We currently do not have any information about if there will be a new model with the same features, including Instaview like the LG 23 cu. ft. Smart Wi-Fi Enabled InstaView™ Door-in-Door® Refrigerator, Model # LMXC23796S. We currently have 22 models of Smart Wi-Fi Enabled InstaView™ Door-in-Door® Refrigerators in our lineup that you can review using the InstaView™ Door-in-Door® filter under features on our site at then use the 'Add to Compare' function to find an InstaView™ Door-in-Door® refrigerator that will have similar features as the LMXC23796S...^Ivan

When will the LG Model #LMXC23796S be available for purchase at Lowe’s in Thibodaux, La. or Lowe’s in Houma, La.  This refrigerator has been unavailable for quite sometimes at Lowe’s.

Asked by: Cambrian
Hi Camcam. Your particular local LOWE's store may not be carrying the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 23 cu. ft. Smart wi-fi Enabled InstaView™ Door-in-Door® Refrigerator, Model # LMXC23796S and you will need to contact LOWE's about if it will be available for purchase in your local LOWE's store. LOWE's decides which of their stores will carry certain models and not every model will be available in every LOWE's store...^IFV

Where is the water filter? How do you change the water filter?

Asked by: Austin Steve
Lift up and remove the lower door bin. Swing the right end of the water filter out of the compartment and then grasp and rotate the filter counterclockwise to remove it from the filter head. Insert the new filter into the filter head and rotate it clockwise until the arrow on the new filter lines up with the arrow on the filter head. Swing the filter back into the compartment.

Seems like there is only one light for the flex drawer illuminating on the right side of the drawer only. Is this normal as designed or is there a light for left side as well?

Asked by: Sac Mom
When opening your freezer drawer, the lighting should illuminate both sides of the drawer. If this is not the case, something may be blocking the light from accessing one side. If you're in need of some guidance with using your refrigerator, please head to our support page at @LGUSSupport on Twitter or shoot us a private message on Facebook at so a specialist can help out. ^CP

Wondering why counter depth model LMXC23796S requires 2" back clearance & only 1" for larger non counter depth LMXS30776S. Benefit of counter depth seems less achievable if extra space required at back adds to actual depth & still lose interior storage

Asked by: Needs a new fridge
There is no benefit lost due to the recommended installation clearance of 2" behind the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 23 cu. ft. Smart wi-fi Enabled InstaView™ Door-in-Door® Refrigerator, Model # LMXC23796S. A counter-depth refrigerator is designed to offer basically the same storage as a regular, full-size refrigerator in a style that doesn't stick out past the kitchen counters and cabinets. Kitchen countertops can have subtle differences in depth. Average kitchen countertop depth comes in at 25 inches. Occasionally, depth can go down as low as 24 inches or as high as 26 1/2 inches. The total depth of Counter Depth Refrigerators is about 30 inches deep which is about 5 inches deeper than a standard CounterTop. Standard kitchen cabinets have a depth of 24" & the cabinet for Counter-Depth refrigerators can be about 24 inches to 25 inches. Various factors may change the Countertop depth may be that the base cabinets are positioned at slightly different distances away from the wall, backsplashes of various depth can be influenced by material thickness, backer board, and the thinset. The Counters may be custom-made counters. When you measure counter depth, start at the wall, not the backsplash. The cabinet for the LMXC23796S has a depth of 24 3/4 inches and a depth of 32 1/8 with the handles. While the refrigerator box is technically counter depth, all fridges need clearance in back, doors, and handles. It is important to remember that you do need to account for door-swing, as it is impossible for doors to properly swing open if they meet the counters. Manufacturers are not engaging in an industry-wide conspiracy of dishonesty. Rather, it is a matter of establishing a common frame of reference for what is meant by counter-depth. When you shave off measurements from one part of the refrigerator, you need to make it up elsewhere. Interior space usually gets made up with higher and wider fridges...^IFV

I an curious as to why does the 23 cubic foot counter depth model require 2 " back clearance and the 30 cubic foot regular model require only 1" back circulation clearance

Asked by: Needs a new fridge
Unfortunately, without the empirical data, we can only assume that the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 23 cu. ft. Smart wi-fi Enabled InstaView™ Door-in-Door® Refrigerator, Model # LMXC23796S radiates more heat from the back than the 30 cubic feet model that you are comparing it to so it will require a little more clearance for the heat to dissipate. We do have some 30 and 31 cubic feet models that require a 2" installation clearance in the back...^IFV
