What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The doors are not reversable I purchased this at home depot with three other matching appliances. The delivery guys told me the fridge must be defective because there are no holes to reverse the doors. They ordered me another one and the new delivery guys told me the same things. LG customer service tells me the doors are reversible, but I assure they are not. I looked at the fridge. Big waist of my time. Now looking for another fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fridge for midnight raids.... I like the LED lights inside, they don't hurt my eyes when I raid the fridge at midnight. The door comes down lower than my last fridge, so I tend to scrape me feet when I open the door, but getting used to it. It's quiet, everything is cold, love the large deli tray/drawer. Love the new LG refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Refrigerator we've ever owned This is one of the best purchases we have made. It holds and keeps a large volume of food at a perfect temperature. The ice maker works well and the freezer keeps items frozen better than any other units we have had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Clean First favorable impression is the clean lines and smooth easy to clean surfaces. I removed the ice maker, so 4 ice cube trays stack nicely to one side so there's lots more room for shopping big-box. Love the solid see-through shelves and drawers in the fridge--the shallow drawer under one shelf is very convenient. The lighting is very effective. Roomy, sturdy shelves in freezer and fridge doors. This fridge is well thought out in design and function. I couldn't be more pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Requested reply for review Purchased about 7 months ago. Works as promised and to date no problems, noises etc.,etc.. Nominal temps set and refrigeration is excellent. Only disappointment was being unable to remove ice maker because I do not use them. That being said, the capacity of the freezer was diminished for me. All in all a very good purchase so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our needs! We bought this refrigerator to replace the one that died in our outside storeroom. It's smaller than the one we had and is ideal for that spot. It was already pre-cooled when we got it, so we could load some items into it immediately, which helped to cool it further, faster. It's quiet and both the refrigerator and freezer stay cold and keep everything in them at the right temperature. I also love the sleek look and stainless steel finish. I highly recommend this refrigerator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice refrigerator Loved the handleless doors. Fits in the space I have very well next to a wall. The only complaint I have is the lighting is not what I was used to. I was used to lighting in a refrigerator that was 20 years old. I'll get used to it soon. So far the cooling is perfect in refrigerator and the freezer is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old School Layout, Excellent Fridge! This fridge replaced a 15-yr french door model. My wife and I realized we didn't use most of the features of the french door model, so we went back to the future and got a straightforward, old school top freezer model. Works great! Full width pantry shelf is great, especially since it's clear. Ice maker is a little loud for the few seconds when refilling the water reservoir, but only lasts a few seconds. Overall, very happy with this unit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good refrigerator, but could be improved This is a good refrigerator: it keeps things cold, is quiet, and looks good. The freezer compartment is somewhat smaller than the one in my old fridge and the main compartment is somewhat bigger, especially the drawers for fruits and vegetables, which are ample. The lower door will not stand open unless at its widest position, and swings shut forcefully enough to rattle the bottles in the door racks, which is not true of the freezer door. I would like to have shelves that roll out to allow easy access to items in the back, and a roll-out basket in the freezer for the same reason. But all in all, I like it and expect to get years of use from it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energy savings We love our new LG refrigerator. The design is nice and it keeps food at a proper temperature. But, the main reason we purchased it is because it uses 1/2 the energy as our old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refrigerator I've had it three weeks and it is working great. Was limited on height so it is as big as I could use. Love the new lighting and when I am fully acclimated to the new shelf placements, I am sure I will love it more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quieter than Sun Frost! Got this a week ago to replace a 20-year-old side-by-side that was noisy enough to drive us out of the living room (in a home we just bought). Noisy fridges have always been a sore point with us, and it's so hard to research ahead of time since nobody really focuses on rating quietness as separate from efficiency, and you sure can't tell when you're in a store. However, Consumer Reports did rate it Superior in quietness. So we took a chance on the new inverter technology, and went by the majority of reviews here and CR. So glad we got it! It is really quiet! Smartphone sound meters confirmed it was about half the "loudness" of the old beast. Hardly notice that it is on! And, we had a Sun Frost (120v model) years ago, but my husband and I agree this LG is quieter than that was. We love it! Separate from that, it looks svelte and the 18 cubic foot top-freezer model holds just as much as the 24 cubic foot side by side, due to all the space in that thing being taken up by all the plastic bins... Someone complained that the LG's full-width deli drawer kept you from being able to see what was on the shelf underneath. Solution: we switched it with the top shelf so it is a bit easier to see stuff on shelves beneath. Also, that really hidden bottom shelf in the door? Holds soda cans just great! And we are also pleased that the temperature settings are easy to adjust, and that--oh yeah--the energy usage for us is about 250 KWH per year (the yellow label says 500 something, but we removed the icemaker unit & do our own cubes). Apparently making ice uses up as much energy as the cooling of the entire fridge and freezer combined, and is a source of other unnecessary noise. So, five stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features The lighting is great as well as the enormous shelf for my lunchmeat, cheeses, butter, etc. The ice maker is a huge plus and works wonderfully. I would recommend this refrigerator to all my friends and colleagues. The cool ambient lighting from the sides of the refrigerator are just the perfect amount of light for the Fridge and Freezer both, I LOVE it so far and hope Life's Good for a good long while. The thing is so smart is has a nice little tone it plays if the refrigerator door is left open. How ingenious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice. Have had this running for about 2 weeks. I'm really pleased so far. It's quiet, well lit, the door handles are nice. My home is off-grid so I removed the ice-maker to decrease the energy requirements. It's holding good temperatures. Adjustable legs are only in the front. Changing door hinge side wasn't quick, but it turned out fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look of my new LG refrigerator this is a very quite model. The shelf spacing is perfect for everything that we place in it. I especially like the fact that the top door shelf fits larger items. Another great feature is the alert that goes off when the door is open to long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Refrigerator I am intrigued by the new technology and the “inverter controlled” refrigeration. It would seem that the new technology would increase the life of the refrigerator. Time shall tell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great storage I like all the storage in the door. The only thing that I have found wrong with this refrigerator is you can't store your milk on the bottom shelf. But it is staying fresh on the top shelf . The dimensions fit the space in my older kitchen

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Interior of refrigerator not designed well We purchased our home in July 2017 with this refrigerator already installed. Functionally no issue - work great. Ice is fantastic. However, the refrigerator is designed in such a way that you can see anything in your fridge and if you want to get to the back of a bottom shelf you need to sit on the floor. I really tried to like this fridge but its a pain to have to sit on the floor to take an inventory, to stock and you reach anything besides what is pulled to the front. We are going to replace this with the LG LDCS22220S Bottom freezer model. We saw the floor model and the interior design of the fridge utilizes the shelf/drawer space much better plus there will be no more sitting on the floor!

Does this model have a replaceable air filter? (I know there's no water filter) The fridge and freezer are emitting a strange smell, similar to an odor we had when a water filter needed to be replaced in another refrigerator. The food now smells like it.

Asked by: Keeker
Sorry, however, this unit does not have a replaceable air filter. We recommend you contact our Customer Service at 800-243-0000 for further troubleshooting.

Can you tell me if this fridge is made in the USA?

Asked by: Rain111
Regrettably, the only way to see which country the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 20 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator, Model # LTCS20220S is manufactured or assembled in is to look at the nameplate that will have the country of manufacture/country of assembly stamped on it or to look at the carton that the refrigerator is shipped in. LG is an international company that has worldwide factories and our refrigerators can be manufactured in one country and shipped to another for sale or parts for the refrigerator can be shipped from one or from different countries and the refrigerator be assembled in another country...^IFV

Is it bad if I place a large microwave on top of the fridge? Like will the heat affect the fridge or the weight of it ?

Please keep the refrigerator at an adequate distance from other objects. Insufficient spacing can reduce the refrigerator’s freezing efficiency and increase electricity consumption. ^CP
