      A PROTRUDING NIPPLE - too tight thru doorway


      I bought this LG fridge in January 2016. It has been quite an improvement over our last fridge. I am a repairman (not refrigerator), so I tend to see what's wrong with things before I see what's right with them. Here's what I see. PROs... -The LED lighting is wonderful, although LG should have designed it with some LEDs on the ceiling of the fridge as well as the ones they put on the sides. This would help light up the backs of the glass shelves, as they are a bit dark, but still okay. -The LEDs in the freezer are a joy. -There's a lot of room in both sections. -It's dead quiet. -No height issues with the fridge door, as other have commented about the door hitting their foot upon opening bit. -I feel the extended warranty is not necessary, but my wife made me get it. Even still, $124.59 was not a bad deal for a renewable 5 year warranty. I almost hope it breaks! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CONs... This is going to sound worse than it actually is... -The butter holder is not big enough to hold all our butter products and it's not moveable. -Unlike the fridge door, I can't get the freezer door to close automatically. There is a slight alignment issue that causes the freezer door to have a detent in its smooth open/close swing. This keeps the door from closing automatically, no matter how high I adjust the front legs. -The two front legs are adjustable for height, but they don't go high enough and the right one is positioned right next to a roller, so it's much more difficult to turn with the wrench than the other front leg. -This last thing upsets me. We have an old home. The doorways are tight, so I MADE ABSOLUTE SURE we had enough room to get this fridge into our kitchen with the fridge doors removed as well as my living room door removed. I even discussed this potential issue with the salesperson. She assured me it would fit. I must have checked and rechecked the measurements 10 times, 10 different ways just to be certain. So, the delivery guys show up exactly when they're supposed to. The head guy comes in to my home via the same path I planned the fridge to come through. He immediately says "it won't fit". I said "you're kidding, why?". He said "the nipple for the ice maker's water inlet sticks out an extra inch in the back and it won't clear the doorway... they don't tell ya that in the dimensions". I said "how can that be?". Well he was right, so I spent the next 15 minutes removing doors and clearing a much longer pathway to the kitchen through our porch. IMPORTANT TIP; REMEMBER TO ALLOW FOR ONE ADDITIONAL INCH OF CLEARANCE (FRONT TO BACK) NOT SHOWN ON THE LG DIMENSION SPEC CHART FOR THIS REFRIGERATOR. Even with these small negatives I've mentioned, I think this LG refrigerator will become an old friend very soon. It's the sexiest appliance we own. I will plumb it for the ice maker in the following months and keep this review updated (if it lets me edit it). CONSIDER THIS FRIDGE!

      Top of the line feel for a mid range price.

      Full disclosure, I bought this refrigerator to replace a 1994 14.5 Cubic ft rental unit fridge so I would probably be impressed with a stryofoam box and some ice. That being said, this refrigerator is everything I wanted and more. First off, it's huge. 24 cu ft is a lot of space. So much space in fact that almost all the food that was in our old fridge that was literally falling out it was so packed in fit in the door of the new fridge. IN. THE. DOOR. The door has very deep shelves that hold a lot of items. You can fit 4 gallons of milk in the top shelf alone! Amazing! The fruit and veggie drawers are a respectable size but the real star of the show is the full width pantry drawer. Its huge and easily holds all the lunch meat, cheese, tortillas and hot dogs you could possibly ever eat before they expire. It keeps all those little things like that organized and together for easy access. The freezer is also very roomy with deep door shelves that easily hold about 3 chickens worth of chicken and 4 lbs of ground beef in just one door shelf alone. It also has an ice maker. It looks nice,but we don't have a water line to hook it up to so I can't comment on its function or quality. It has fancy LED lights in in both the fridge and freezer parts which is amazing. I haven't experienced any of the problems about it being dark like a few others have said. It's actually very well lit and bright, but again, I'm coming from a 1994 unit that barely had any light at all. With all that space inside, it is surprisingly compact on the outside. As I mentioned before, we live in a rental with a fairly tiny alley kitchen and a fairly small spot for a fridge, Any other 24 cu ft fridge would have been way too tall. But this guy is about the same height as a smaller 18 or 20 cu ft unit at just under 68 inches tall. It's whisper quiet which is a far cry from the freight train like sounds the old 1994 model I was running before used to make. Though, now it's almost too quiet at night and I can hear myself think and that's not good for anyone. I also really like the gray color of the sides. Some people are turned off by them apparently, but I like it. I never liked the black sides on a stainless steel fridge. To me it always looked weird, The gray matches well I think. The stainless steel is super nice. I used baby oil on it which is supposed to help prevent smudges and finger prints (thanks internet!) and it seems to be working despite making me question some things and making me feel weird rubbing baby oil on a major kitchen appliance. Overall, for the money it is a great refrigerator with a TON of space and a compact footprint. It feels top of the line even though it's more mid range. It has a ton of space and is very quiet. I am very pleased with every aspect of it.

      Huge fridge! Reasonable Price.

      We had our old fridge for 26 years. Standard builder grade fridge. Always dreamed of having the water and ice in the door. However, a friend gave us their old side by side for our vacation home. Nice fridge. So glad they did because I hate it. Freezer and fridge seem so small. No more room than our old fridge and they are super expensive! So, our fridge died and because we live in a townhouse, we found we were very limited on choices. Only a few would fit. Though there were side by sides that would fit with ice and water (those things break all the time), when I saw this fridge, I loved it! Pretty stainless, simple beauty and HUGE!!!! Seems like we have twice the space in both the freezer and the fridge and we do have an ice maker! Less things to break on this and much more space! Great lighting and nice drawers. The reason for 4 of 5 stars is we had issues with the door ajar alarm going off constantly. It went off all night the first night. It will drive you crazy. We had Geek Squad come out (we purchased warranty and recommend) and they adjusted the door and it’s been perfect ever since. I really should give 5 stars, but the alarm was annoying and I’ve read many others have the problem. However, it is completely fixed and works perfect now. It is an awesome feature we didn’t know we had until it went off all night. Anyway.....simple, basic, huge, pretty, affordable. I like my fridge more than the super expensive ones we looked at.

      What an excellent buy!

      Our old fridge decided to die after a bad storm. We have a smaller kitchen and didn't want something that we would have to adjust cabinets. Another thing that was going to be a possible issue, (which we saw in another review), was the water inlet line for the ice machine. Yes, it does stick out an inch. There was a concern of getting the fridge through the door. No worries, The fridge doors are removed when there is limited entry. Might I add that the doors are reversible, Im sure this is possible with most models built now a days. We purchased the white model. The area inside is very spacious. I like that larger containers like 2 liters and or milk have a wide shelf built on the door. Inner shelving is adjustable. Center slide out drawer is a nice addition. There are no handles on this fridge. So, no extra depth. The "handles" are on the top part on the lower door. and underside of freezer door. I quite like this feature. Having LED lighting is nice to have in the fridge section, Its nice that the freezer is lighted the as well. We have had this unit for a little over a month and couldn't be happier. Very quite. Keeps everything nice and cool. Good for those hot days when you want something cold to drink. The shelf inside the freezer is nice to have, Keeps one from over stacking and never seeing an item for a long time. One draw back, The water line for the ice maker was not supplied. I'm sure because of required length. Might as well get a length you can use. Better than having too much or coming up short. So, measure for that as well. FYI As you look at the front of the fridge the water connection is on the bottom left. All in all. we are very happy with this purchase. I would like to add that the delivery guys went above and beyond. We were called the day before. Verified the delivery time. Called the morning of the delivery. Called one hour from delivery. Called when they arrived out front. Very professional. Thanks guys! Yes, they hauled away the old unit. One less thing you have to do. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

      LG refrigerators have bad warranty support

      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      I purchased this refrigerator based on these reviews. However, after 45 days the defrost cycle doesn't seem to be working. The main compartment must be blocked from air flow by ice and frost build up inside the evaporator area. The freezer is very cold (-15 degrees F.) but the fresh food compartment is around 50 degrees F. It should be below 40. BestBuy support was nice but said it had been too long and I would have to deal with LG support. BestBuy transferred me to LG support where they asked questions not even relevant to the model I have. After several questions, they suggested I turn the temperature control one level colder and wait a few hours. It had no effect so I called again. After additional questions which were not relevant to the model, they agreed to send a ticket to their scheduling department. They said it would be 3 to 5 days before the scheduling department would get back to me. I'm still waiting to here back. Fortunately for me, I have an old mini refrigerator so I can use that. Perhaps LG should recommend anyone who purchases this refrigerator to have a spare just in case - a warranty service call will likely take several days before they get to you. Based on my experience with LG support, I will not buy any other LG products again. I only hope my other LG products won't need warranty support.

      Most cubic feet for a top-freezer unit

      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      It took awhile to get used to having no door handles and just grooves instead which are easier to get dirty. The factory settings for temperature are spot-on. The sound of the unit running is not horrible and does not have a high-pitch fan sound like another brand we tried. But it does make substantial sound. I guess all the modern ones do now since they run more often due to efficiency standards. I actually like the lighting and think it's pretty. It is not too dark to find things as some people have said as long as you have a kitchen light on. The exterior back of the unit is very well made and sturdy. It is solid top to bottom. The butter container is way too small but the shelf-drawer is great and easily stores numerous small packages. The control panel hangs down from the freezer compartment into the middle of the fridge and takes up valuable space of the top shelf unfortunately. That is what I dislike the most. And also the placement of the vents which are hard to keep from being blocked which you must adhere to to make it run properly. We removed the ice maker which we don't need to make more usable space. Overall I like this refrigerator and studied many reviews and specs before settling on this brand and model.

      Very nice... But the shelves?

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

      My delivery was painless, the Refrigerator is very clean looking. It is very quiet. I left it on the factory 3 setting and It’s holding out at 30 in the refrigerator part. The temp drops real quick if you hold the door open and The alarm is priceless. The doors need to be aligned.. The freezer is holding at 0. The ice maker makes ice pretty quickly. In just two days it has almost filled the bucket twice.. I keep dumping them until it’s all clear.. it will wake the dead when the ice drops. Maybe because I need to go food shopping.. Both lights are very helpful and Anyway... I have a Complaint! These shelves are pretty flimsy. Mainly the one without the drawer under it. Mine has a crack in the plastic and the glass is popping out on the other side upon delivery. You can not put weight on that shelf. They bend.. I moved it to the middle so I can keep the heavier items on the more supported shelves but the door doesn’t swing freely out of the way to clear the shelf. You would have to move the shelf on the door to do so.. Honestly I’m dreading having to put a Turkey, Pork, Ham or any other large item In this fridge..

      Why I hate this refrigerator See my Photos

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      First off the front is NOT STAINLESS STEEL whatever it is you cannot stick any magnets to it. The inside looks nice and advanced but it's really small. I had to lower the top shelf just to get my Brita filter in it. Next the led lights you see on the side do not light up the whole refrigerator making it difficult to see whats in the back of the fridge. If you just look into the refrigerator you have no idea what is on the bottom shelf because there is a drawer that slides out and it's full of items so you just can't see the back of the bottom shelf. Next it has an ice cube maker which we don't have connected so it's just taking up space. If you don't have the plumbing already you have to get a plumber to set it up. If the refrigerator is just for 1 or 2 people in the house then it may work for you. We have 3 people and it's smaller then my old refrigerator so it's just not working for us. Also someone on my job just told me their LG refrigerator broke after a year and 8 weeks. Make sure you buy a warranty.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

        The stainless steel used on the front of this refrigerator is austenitic which means it has a a higher chromium content and nickel is also added which makes it nonmagnetic. We greatly appreciate the feedback and we are sorry the refrigerator did not meet your expectations. ^CP LG
