      Good Fridge, but.....

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      Our 2006 Fridge needed repair, and parts were most costly. We shopped around the Denver area. We found that our kitchen space was built for a 33 in fridge, and most today are 35 in or wider. We found only two possible models, both side-by-side. We ended up with a LG model. The LG has a "linear compressor', and has other unique features. It is very quiet. Works well. Looks good. But.. 1. Foul Taste: the installer told us to flush out the water with "2 gallons" to get rid of the bad taste. Better 2 gallons/day. The bad taste smells like a disinfectant, maybe necessary. Better now, but if you don't use the water for a while, hold your nose. 2. The interior lighting is pretty inferior. There is a rather useful lighting fixture at the top of the fridge. Does a good job at lighting the top shelf, not much more. The freezer has too just one light and most of the interior is dimly lit. With LED lighting options, this seems a design flaw—LG knows better. The box was "manufactured in Mexico", but as we all know, today "manufacturing" means screwing manufactured parts together, assembly, which gets taken for manufacturing. So, good looking, quiet, very efficient, good design features for storage, solid doors. But the water problem remains, and bring your flashlight when you open the door. The other candidate (another side by side) was conventional, and had an ice maker that invaded the freezer. More useful space in the LG. However, the LG was about $400 more. Time will tell. As for Best Buy, we had excellent service, knowledgable sales people, good company. They did not seem to know that Xcel Energy is giving a $50 check for one of their customers who kills a old, energy hog refrigerator. That went smoothly. The Xcel team came, took off the doors off the old box, and off it went to the rendering plant, where it gets parted out, probably sending the steel parts to Korea for throwing into the furnace.

      We wouldn't buy this again


      Unfortunately our kitchen cabinets were built around an older fridge that was here when we bought the house, so we were very limited in the size we could get for a replacement. If we'd had more leeway, we definitely wouldn't have gone with this unit. First the positives: it looks nice, it's very sleek with a minimal design (not a whole lot of bells and whistles that would probably malfunction in a year or two). The fridge is fairly roomy, but after having a stacked unit (freezer on top), it took some getting used to having a considerably narrower space to put things. The lighting in the fridge side is adequate and illuminates the whole space. The negatives: the "stainless steel" finish appears to be some kind of laminate and is definitely not real steel. You can't adjust any of the shelves to different heights, so we can't even put a bottle of soda on a shelf without putting it on its side. The only way to alleviate this is to completely remove one of the shelves to make room for taller items. The freezer side is the biggest issue. The first problem is there's next to zero space in there! The shelves are maybe 6 inches wide (and also can't be adjusted for height). The ice maker takes up a good 60% of the inside of the door... and the bin barely holds any ice! There's only 2 of us in the house and we've run out of ice during the day multiple times already. And it takes forever to make it... there's some kind of setting to have it produce it faster (which only lasts 24 hours for some reason), but I've yet to see any difference in the speed. The shelves are deep, so in order to have stuff in there, we're constantly digging items out to get to food in the back. I can't imagine a family would have even a fraction of the space needed for the food they'd consume. On top of all that, some genius decided it would be a great idea to put the LED light on the back wall above the middle shelf. So once you put stuff on the shelf, everything is back-lit and/or the light is covered completely.and the freezer is dark. We really wanted a french door fridge, but unfortunately no model would fit in our space. We thought a side-by-side might be a compromise, but we regret the purchase. Between the lack of storage space and very odd design choices, I definitely wouldn't recommend this.

      Nice Refrigerator - customer service problem


      This refrigerator was delivered at noon on a Thursday. Before the delivery people left I asked what the beeping/chiming noise was. He had never heard it before but guessed it might be because the fridge was warm. I looked in the manual many times but could find anything about the chiming except for a door alarm. I looked up online and found it is a problem and called the local Boise store on Franklin. I was pretty much put off, asked if I'd purchased geek squad insurance and told to call them. The person at geek squad had me do a few things and then said a technician would need to come out. The first scheduled appointment available was in 7 days - NOT ACCEPTABLE. There are 3 chimes that can be heard all over the house that go off every 30 seconds. I called the local store again and they could not do anything or have any influence over the appointment because Best Buy uses contractors although they are working to bring repair people onto BEst Buy rolls. I told them to bring back my old refrigerator (which was on its last legs) - the soonest they could get a replacement refrigerator was in a month. I ordered another one - same - from Home Depot who could deliver in 2 weeks. Friday morning I called the Geek Squad again and talked with a terrific agent - RIck who worked very hard and communicated with me about progress - he was able to get an appointment for later that same day!!!! Kudos to him. The repairmen came about 5:30 p.m. - worked about an hour but finally were able to determine that a connection in the panel on top of the refrigerator was loose. In the meantime, the fridge was not cooling down like it should have over 24 hours and the water dispenser stopped working. They determined that it was a faulty water filter which I had to go to the store in BOise to pick up - they did not have one and sent me to their Nampa, ID store that had only 1 in stock thank goodness. Water filter works very well. The fridge/freezer also cooled down to appropriate levels within 2 hours so apparently that was also connected to the loose wire. I really like the refrigerator - not the local store for customer service. The Geek Squad was excellent once I got the right person who cared enough to help me out. I don't think I'll go back to Best Buy again, although I will buy LG products again.

      Like it very much

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      Although this refrigerator has some minor negatives the positives makes it a great unit. Sure I read all the complaints but none are significant. The fixed shelves is not really a problem since the chosen layout is livable. With all the refrigerators with movable shelves I have owned, I never moved them once set. We adjusted quickly. The LED lights, especially in the freezer could be brighter but we never open the freezer in a completely dark kitchen. So not that much of a problem. It makes ice quickly and if you use a glass with a normal opening, all cubes wind up in the glass. Filter is easy to change. This refrigerator employs a new LINEAR COMPRESSOR. Excellent new technology, and it is whisper quiet, cools fast and I mean FAST. VERY ENERGY efficient! Price was right, size is perfect for small kitchen, attractive design. Wife was disappointed that her magnets no longer stick. I was delighted. Just hate the pictures, stupid magnets and her honey-do-lists! Magnets do stick to top and sides so I am not 100% free of this blight completely but I'll get by. Again the new Linear Compressor is impressive and has a 10 year warrantee. The buttons are fine for ice-cubes/crushed/water. Easy to use and not all that different from similar units. If you have problems with that, well sorry. They say if you build something so simple an idiot could use it, an idiot will.

      Fridge OK, service back up VERY POOR

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      We purchased this very nice fridge about 3 months ago. Then the control panel failed by getting stuck in a certain mode and the buttons didn't respond. LG customer service were contacted and they tried to set up a repairman to visit - not only did this chap have ABSOLUTELY NO KNOWLEDGE of his appointment to visit us, he had NEVER worked on LG products previously. When we informed LG of their error they took forever to try to rectify this problem. Fortunately the fridge and freezer itself were still functioning and keeping things cool. According to Best buy management, service back-up for many companies is Poor, and LG are just another example of this. It is all very well being pleasant on the phone and asking things such as "Is there anything else I can help you with" and "Have a nice day" etc etc and all the niceties, but at the end of the day, when you need something fixing, especially if it is only 3 months old, YOU JUST NEED IT FIXING, BY SOMEONE WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING. It may not be rocket science but they seem to turn it into rocket science! All these stores try to get you to sign for extended warranties but if this is the sort of back up you get even within the 1st year....is it worth it?!

      Slimmer width,slimmer performance!

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      This review will echo many others. While this is one of the few choices out there for a 33inch width, I feel it is half-baked compared to LG's full width models. The unit looks very nice and the materials and assembly are very good quality but there are some real shortcomings. The interior lighting, while it is LED, is lousy. There should be at least two light units in each side at different locations instead of one dim unit. Consequently only about one shelf per side is well lit and the others remain in the dark shadows. The glass shelves are very thin and light- duty and can flex a little under heavy objects. They are not height adjustable and the fixed track spacing does not accommodate standard height beer bottles without deleting a shelf. The freezer side is not as critical and shelf spacing seems more usable. The ice maker works well so far although it is a low volume unit with minimal storage. Lastly, this next issue may be unique to my unit. The freezer side is very cold. I keep it on the warmest setting and it still maintains 0 degrees. However, I have to keep the fridge side set on one bar below max cold just to hold 37 degrees. I don't know if this is a common problem. On the plus side the unit is surprisingly roomy on both sides although the room could be better utilized with adjustable shelves. It is also fairly quiet and seems to be pretty efficient. Overall I think it is a decent unit but not a great one. I feel with just a few minor changes that are standard in most of LG's other models, this could easily be the best 33inch model out there. Time for LG to bring this model in line with their other offerings.

      This model by LG has a design flaw. The lighting is inadequate. One ceiling light in refrigerator does not illuminate the entire refrigerator. Only the top 2 shelves are illuminated. Immediately after delivery, I spoke to LG about this and the first 2 support technicians insisted the refrigerator should have a light above the first vegetable drawer and scheduled LG tech to come to my home to inspect the fridge. A few hours later, I received a call from LG -very apologetic - to say they have confirmed the refrigerator only has a ceiling light and therefore needed to cancel the service call. They indicated they would forward my complaint to their engineering and design department, as they admit this is a design flaw. So - don't rely on pictures and advertising as they may be inaccurate - also, be aware that the words "Utility Box" appear as a label on the snack drawer. This does not appear in the advertising for this model. "Utility Box" to me means hardware, not food! I am returning this refrigerator to Best Buy and purchasing another from them and hope to have better luck with my next choice!

      Door Alarm beeps every 30 seconds


      New refrigerator delivered yesterday. It was beeping and delivery man hadn't heard that before and thought it might be because it was warm. I called the Best Buy store in Boise, ID and asked them about it - they had no idea and told me to call the Geek Squad. They were very good and ended up saying it sounded like a defective door open alarm - they couldn't tell me how to disarm it. Earliest date to get a repair person to the house was in one week - UNACCEPTABLE. I recalled the store manager who said they had problems with contracted service over which they had no control but Best Buy was changing that in the fall. 3 beeps every 30 seconds for a week - and they cannot come up with a better solution. A replacement refrigerator will take a month. I called LG and they agree this is a problem but could not tell me how to disarm nor could they do anything about the service call being a week out. I have requested that my old refrigerator - which is on its last legs - be brought back. I really like this refrigerator for how it is designed for storage but will never go back to Best Buy. I have purchased another one from Home Depot.
