      Cool, quiet, but one issue with water dispenser

      (note, I will post an update in a few months - the dripping issue is one of the simplest and more common issues that can be had so I'm not marking off any big points for that as such.) After agonizing research, I opted on this model due to accredited appliance review sites. The good (refrigerator): * big - lots more space for items in the freezer * started cooling fairly quickly once plugged in * no leaks so far from the water intake valve * more quiet than my 18 year old/failing fridge it replaced, which was 20cu ft and used about as much energy - other reviews complained about noise so I was more than pleasantly surprised * linear compressor technology (digitally controlled) allows for longer lifespan The good (installers): * definitely did magic in getting this fridge in through a limited door opening. Very happy with the people Best Buy contracts with! The not-so-good (fridge): * fridge is not Energy Star Certified. Which can save 10 to 30% on operating costs depending on size and functionality of unit. (Still, same amount of energy to run a 26cu/ft fridge as opposed to 20cu/ft, that's still pretty good.) * Most fridges worth getting are bigger nowadays, the smaller ones use the obsolete analog-controlled compressors that have more moving parts and fail sooner. (Being 68.75" tall, which is the height of my cabinetry and fridge alcove, I had to get custom cabinet work done. ) * an extra cubby in the door might have been nice to house more items, but I'm finding plenty of space in the main fridge to compensate. Not a biggie but your experiences may vary * shelving is okay, glass *seems* thin but I had no problems laying out the shelves to fit 2L bottles of fizzy teeth-rotting drinks and stomach-rotting salad dressings. The previous fridge had slightly thicker glass. Not a biggie by any means. * The higher up version of this model, with the door-in-door feature to save energy usage/re-cooling, only came in stainless steel/black stainless steel variants. For $400 more, it's probably not worth it - though the door would also mean other gaskets to eventually go bad and so on. That's my rationalization since it's better to replace fewer gaskets. :) If you're into stainless, spend the extra money for the door-in-door versions. * temperature setting controls are weird at first - press in the button, which counts down backwards then resets at the top. Once you get used to this, which is quick, it's kinda cool - no pun intended. The unfortunate (fridge): * Water dispenser - it has a slow drip. This could be due to the handle being stiff (it is new and could just be stiff), or is due to an imperfection in the seal during the manufacturing process - and these little issues can happen from time to time in general, regardless of brand. Overall: This is a spacious unit. I had no problems filling up the freezer and refrigerator sections with food after aligning the drawers. I wish it was Energy Star certified but other circumstantial evidence already tells me this does a lot more for the same amount of energy being used. I've no complaints. A future update will address the dripping water dispenser issue. Right now I'm chalking it up to just stiffness in the spigot. This current review describes size and functionality first and foremost. Again, any appliance can have issues from time of installation due to a number of possible reasons. I've read far worse things about other brands and even with those, a handful of issues doesn't mean every unit ever made and installed is bad. Stay tuned! Lastly: Always buy a BB warranty plan. Problems that occur usually happen soon upon installation and, once resolved, a product is LIKELY to remain stable. Stuff happens. The added cost is well worth it for peace of mind should a problem occur, though most people will not have problems.

      Great looking fridge with no service on island

      Posted

      We bought this fridge not even two years ago. By far - in our opinion - this was the most aesthetic fridge we ever possessed. It is optically designed well and the inside layout is just wonderful. We really miss our fridge, which after only 18 months died. The compressor (the most expensive part with a 10 year warranty) broke. We also had bought extended warranty on the fridge. Unfortunately with the fridge dying we had to delve into the depths, mysteries and nightmares of the Customer Service of Appliance Repair on Oahu. First, a lot of the companies refuse to work on LG. Second, even after talking numerous times to LG (the scenario kept changing every time we called), and all involved companies (I won't name them here, this is about the fridge and not the incompetence of Oahu's Repair-Services) we still after over 10 weeks did not get our fridge fixed. After such a long time, even the Repairman left little hope for a successful repair. The fridge also started to smell bad and to grow mold. We wonder why LG is at all allowed to sell their products on island when they cannot service them properly. All we needed was a repair so we could have gotten reimbursed. All we got was diagnostic after diagnostic with daily changing outlooks. 'Indefinite Spare part backorder' kept changing with 'we will send parts out today', back and forth, lie after lie. Bottom Line: Nobody was competent to fix the fridge, not even LG's authorized company on Oahu. This was our summer break: spending our time and nerves with customer service on the phone, instead of spending time with our kids. Eating out all the time and throwing food away continuously. We had to buy a little fridge for our Lanai and eventually gave up for our own sanity and bought a new fridge out of our own pocket, which we might never get reimbursed for (after not even two years). Now we don't care so much about the looks of our fridge anymore, all we want is something that actually works form a company that can actually be serviced here. Also we did not spend that much money anymore, in a time when appliances are apparently build to last 2-10 years instead of 50.

      Stick with LG for Refrigerators

      After about a week of studying up on frig's, and talking with a Lowe's expert in that dept, I came to a conclusion that LG one of the few brands that stands behind their product and delivers an overall quality product. Between Frigidaire, Whirlpool, Samsung, amongst others, LG was the top brand to get. I nearly purchased a Samsung but then was told about frost in the freezer... people returning them for that reason... Frigidaire for having bad motors and stuff that generally goes bad. Now I have my LG and couldn't be happier. It's a SOLID unit. Great lighting, great cooling all over. There are no cold spots in the frig. The shelving is sturdy though I REALLY would have preferred spill-proof shelves. An auto-light in the dispenser area also would be a plus. You can either turn the light on or off manually, that's it. Our current main Kenmore Elite has a sensor to adjust automatically the lighting in the dispenser area. I personally wouldn't mind having wheels on the front bottom in addition to the back. It makes for an easier move to pull out and not scratch up the floor as we light to keep that area clean. Overall, still, the best frig out there is LG. This particular model we liked... getting a french door model really does take away some of the storage space with all the dividing compartments. Highly recommend.

      Excellent Refrigerator

      I did my research in looking for a refrigerator. On-line, talked to numerous retailers, and checked consumer reports. Almost went with a "cheaper" model, and realized for a few hundred $'s more, I would get so much more. The water dispenser feature (allows for pitcher dispensing) is used a lot. Digital display is a must. LED lighting is 10X better then incandescent. The delivery personnel were professional and knew what they were doing. The front door to the house had to be removed to get the refrigerator in the house, and to get into the kitchen, they had to remove the doors of the refrigerator. They knew the model well, and were able to get the refrigerator installed back to how it was when it came off the truck. Took them a good 45-minutes to install due to all the obstacles, but they never gave up, and did a great job. The buying experience was phenomenal. The manager at the Best Buy where I purchased, knew his stuff. Never pushed me, and was very knowledgeable and helpful (5-stars to Scott at Best Buy). I did not buy the first visit, and when I did buy, Scott (the manager) was not working. The associate that actually sold me the unit, called Scott to ensure that I got the best deal possible. Truly satisfied with my purchase and the service revived from purchase to delivery. KUDO's to Best Buy....

      Great value for the size

      I bought this refrigerator after the first LG I bought didn't fit. The size online was an inch wider than the actual unit and Best Buy didn't have an in store model for it. This one though It's just right. It's tall enough for my height and there's plenty of space. You can't fit a big rectangular cake on this though (just fyi to some of you) but it will fit small ones and square ones. If you need a space for milk or something tall, just remove a divider and you're good to go. It's easy. I like that it has a water and ice dispenser. It comes with one filter. That's one thing I was looking for when I was looking at refrigerators. The hookup is very easy. I bought the installation because I didn't know what needed to be installed but after looking at what they did, it was easy. You can get a stainless steel water kit and attach that to the back, then attach a plastic tube (you can get both of these cheaper at home depot) and hook that up to a water line. You also need an adapter to connect the plastic tube to the kit and the end of the tube to the water line/water source, you can ask home depot representative where to find them, they are next to each other. If you don't like the plastic tube, a copper wire can substitute it. It's less bendable and you have to be careful with that because it might cause a kink and leak. You also need to ground the copper wire. This refrigerator is definitely great for its value. It's big enough to store food and it's spacious in the freezer side. I do wish I could fit something wider in this though (cake) and have the doors be magnetic but it's not a biggie. It's still a five star to me.

      Terrific fridge and freezer

      I read about and looked at more than a dozen refrigerator freezers--freezers on top, bottom, and side-by-side, French door fridges, as well. None of the 26cu ft refrigerator freezers had as much efficient and real storage space as the LGLSXS26326S. The in-door ice and water dispenser leaves all the freezer shelves free for storage. The arrangement of storage space in the refrigerator is simple and efficient. Space is not wasted by lots of plastic compartments. I would like one additional option for spacing my shelves for tall items, but I'm sure I'll get accustomed to the arrangement I have. The deep door pockets enable me to put lots of little jars (usually lost at the back of shelves) where I can spot and grab them. I would like one additional adjustment option for a wine bottle in the lowest fridge door pocket. The only feature I do not like about this fridge is the cover of the bottom fruit/vegetable drawer. The drawer is a great size, but is deeper than the drawer above. A loose plastic piece covers that extension. It’s in the way when opening and getting into the bin and fiddly to adjust when closing it. I may decide not to use it. Other fridges had more significant annoyances than this one. I have to admit there is one feature I very much miss: the stainless doors do not hold my countless magnets.

      Purchased 3/4/16 after much research. Delivery was outstanding (took doors off to get it thru stairway to kitchen)! Ice and water dispensers work great. Loads of freezer space thanks to space-saving ice maker and layout makes it easy to organize frozen food. All bins slide open easily in fridge and freezer. Contents are easy to see with LED lighting. So quiet I had to check to make sure it was running-it does make a sound for 2-3 seconds when water fills ice maker but not loud. Doors close automatically and I like the fact the door has alarm feature if left open too long. Water filter is easy to put in. Door bins can easily hold 3-gallon size bottles. If the door bins are not filled you will notice jars, bottles rattle when door automatically closes. I have the stainless steel finish. Be aware magnets do no adhere to front of fridge, only side. Sides are grey not stainless! Great temp control throughout. Overall I love it so far!

      Two negatives the Best Buy representative warned me about with this fridge we're that it has no meat/deli bin, and the water dispenses out through a top valve instead of putting your glass underneath to get it like you do the ice. For the former, this is an inconvenience, as the top produce bin has effectively become the deli bin. For the latter, this is not a problem, and, in fact, is always a party gag. The purpose of it being where it is is to help with water bottles, which it does. When friends or family come over for the first time, we always watch to see if they'll get sprayed, which always happens. Therefore, this inconvenience to others actually works well for us because we use water bottles quite a bit, and it is entertaining. Everything else is similar to other fridges. One thing, it tends to be loud at times. Other than that, it is spacious, produces good-tasting water, and cools as it should.
