Excellent Build QualityVery pleased with purchase of 14.3 cu. ft. Kimchi Refrigerator. Terrific design and quality of interior with custom storage containers--exactly what my wife wanted for a 2nd refrigerator. One issue: I'm seeking to set the coldest possible temperature of the Bottom CustomChill Drawer in order to freeze food for long-term storage. Referencing page 25 of the Owners Manual, I've set the Bottom Compartment setting to "Produce>High Cooling" but it appears that setting won't fall below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Please advise whether the setting "Rice/Grain>Storage>Fast Chill>On" or "Kimchi>High Cooling>Fast Chill>On" is the coolest setting.

Keeps Kimchi tastyThe LG kimchi refrigerator keeps my kimchi tasting as if they were buried in the ground throughout the winter months, which brings back memories of having wonderful kimchi in Korea as a child.
Because if it’s diverse functionality, I use it to keep produce and many other type of foods that remain crisp and fresh for longer period of time than the conventional refrigerator.
I can see that they put so much thought into the interior designs and attributes for user’s comfort.
Finally, I love the flexibility of being able to choose different functionality for each of the four compartments.

ExcellentI purchased this one about 2 months ago that I really dreamed to have one. As I expected, this one is giving fresh food and refresh all beverages in it. Also, it has enough spaces to put all food that I need to save fresh.

I read the questions/answers in the bottom about the FREEZER MODE.
But there is no consistency in the answers. Can you correctly rephrase the answer again? If it is possible to switch to freezer mode or not? Cuz I got this model last week.

In our response as to whether the bottom two drawers for the LG 14.3 cu. ft. Kimchi/Specialty Food French Door Refrigerator, Model # LRKNS1400V can be used as a standard U.S. freezer, the response given was "The middle drawer and CustomChill™ drawers for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 14.3 cu. ft. Kimchi/Specialty Food French Door Refrigerator, Model # LRKNS1400V cannot be used as a standard freezer since the temperature for them cannot be set lower than 1.0℃ / 33℉" The third drawer is the freezer compartment and in another response, we explained that The freezer compartment for the LG 14.3 cu. ft. Kimchi/Specialty Food French Door Refrigerator, Model # LRKNS1400V has a temperature of -20°C / -4°F. The temperature range for the freezer compartments in most LG refrigerators is from -6 °F to 8 °F (-21 °C to -13 °C) so the temperature for the freezer in the LRKNS1400V falls within the temperature range for the freezer compartments in LG Refrigerators, meaning you could use it as a freezer" There is nothing that is inconsistent about the responses. The responses explain what the temperature ranges are for each drawer. The refrigerator has a refrigerator compartment and a freezer compartment. It does not have a "FREEZER MODE". Put simply, the refrigerator compartment has a temperature range of Low 1.0℃/33℉, Medium 2.0℃/35℉, High3.0℃/37℉ and the freezer compartment has a temperature range of -20°C / -4°F...^Ivan

I was thinking of purchasing this as the refrigerator/freezer in my kitchen. Can the bottom 2 drawers be used as a standard US freezer?

Ivan thanks for your reply. I said garage because its easy to understand. It will be in the laundry where there is A/C year round. My question is if this can be used as a freezer as it is not clear in the Manual.

I want to buy this. I have read the manual, I need help.. I dont eat kimchi but I want to use this as my second fridge/freezer in the garage. It is not clear if the bottom 2 can be set up as freezers and the temp that they will be set two. Help?
Asked by: jackb112
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 14.3 cu. ft. Kimchi/Specialty Food French Door Refrigerator, Model # LRKNS1400V is not a 'Garage Ready' refrigerator and it must be installed in an area where the temperature is between 55 °F (13 °C) and 110 °F (43 °C). If the temperature around the appliance is too low or high, cooling ability may be adversely affected. Most refrigerators stop working at some point during the winter months in an unheated garage, depending on the climate and how well the garage is insulated. Installing it in an unheated garage could cause the freezer portion to thaw frozen food, the refrigerator portion to freeze food or both. When room temperature raises above the setting for the fresh-food section -- for example, 37°F — a typical refrigerator turns on and starts to cool. If the temperature in the unheated garage drops below 37°F, the refrigerator shuts down and stops cooling. This also shuts down the freezer section, causing it to warm up, thawing frozen food. Even if the refrigerator continues to operate without freezing or thawing as the outside temperature fluctuates, efficiency drops. A more important point to consider is the cost of keeping a second fridge running year-round in your garage. Your fridge will have to work extra-hard in summer and winter to keep your food at the right temperature, and this consumes more power...^IFV
