Freezer slides breaking
We were happy with is fridge until the Freezer slide collapsed . LG contacted me about the issue and were happy to cover this issue. Ther service provided was excellent and was happy with the result.
Purchased in September 2015 at JB Hi-Fi for $1,150.00.
Fan in fridge broke within weeks of purchasing and now the freezer slides (which are made from plastic coated foam) have broken off. Draws have been awkward and difficult to open since day dot. Have owned for about 5 years.
Fridge is functional and energy efficient, but it aint quiet
Great on energy
Cools and freezes well
It is not quiet, it makes an array of disruptive sounds which often results in the tv volume going up
LG Support is not very helpful, they've been out once and installed extra padding around the condenser but that only stopped the vibration from behind.
Noise is often shelves vibrating when the door is opened on a certain angle, loud hum when condenser kicks in, and sometimes a higher pitched sound.
Freezer consists of trays and are a pain to slide out when full
Fridge crisper tray hits the door unless you open at maximum extend, fridge door ideally needs to extend further but is limited to the hinge design....

Great Fridge and Freezer size for the price
Fridge and freezer work very well. Fridge space is good and it has maintained temperature since owning it. The freezer drawers can be a little awkward since you need to have the freezer door wide open to take the drawers out. That is probably the only downside to this product.

Door dropped and hinges failing
Tried to make a warranty claim but got no support or answers a month later! Terrible after sales service!
Fridge was initially great. A year later and still under warranty the door started dropping. It rubbed an indent into the freezer door. You have to lift the door to open it because it jams on the one below it. I tried to get a repair agent to replace the hinges. They wanted photos to assess the door and based on the photos rejected my claim! They dont know if the door warped or the hinges are faulty but have decided I have to pay for the r...

It's a very nice upgrade and only a couple of minor things I don't like.
Great fridge which has an option to open the door from the other side. It's pretty quiet but not silent. No sharp edges like we saw on some of the other fridges with sharp door handles etc. Quite sturdy and sits well and not flimsy.
big solid doors and handles well even when fully loaded with drinks. There's a temperature display which is only for setting what temps you want but does not display the current temp which they should of added in my opinion. The tempered glass shelves are ok but I get a bit scared it might break when I'm laying gl...

I love this fridge as it works really well and looks great too!...Handles...water dispenser...All great!
It is only a year old and now it 'buzzes' when its cooling... and the buzzing keeps coming back from the left hand side of the unit...This refrigerator was always quiet when I bought it. Its not the compressor....its just a rattle/buzz from the LHS panel...that you would expect from an old 1970's fridge
At $1300 I shouldnt have to try to stop the buzzing by moving it a little every couple of days
Just seeing if there is a brand manager from LG that can help out :-)

We bought two of these fridges at an excellent price from Good Guys in Toowoomba. After a few months, one of them had an issue with the pump. It took a lot of back and forth and phone calls, but finally LG sent out a replacement for nothing which was great.
LG tried to send us to their local repair agent in town, who weren't very helpful. It wasn't until we pushed back on LG themselves that we finally got the replacement fridge. This took awhile to come as they didn't have the right colour in stock. However they did offer to send us a higher ...grade finish (matt black) which was worth more. We declined this as we wanted our two fridges to match. Apart from this issue, we have had no problems and find it is an excellent fridge, good size with a nice finish and internal layout. Would recommend.
Appliances Online. Love our fridge. Would not buy my big household appliances anywhere else now. Thank you so much for your fabulous services. Am a return customer already! Love our washing machine too.

Best fridge I’ve owned
The fridge does exactly what it is meant too. I love the simplistic look of it and that it chimes when I’m taking too long to pack my groceries. I love the handles on the side as my toddler doesn’t quite know how to open it. It does a great job keeping food cold or frozen and doesn’t have any ice build up

Backbone of our household
Fridge is fantastic. Does exactly what any fridge should do. Temperature is constant and if you leave the fridge door is has a beeping noise to alert you. It can leave finger prints from our toddler but glad it does as it’s easy to spot dirt and to clean. Door can be set to open either direction

The fridge seemed just what I wanted. But it's less than a year old and I feel like selling the thing and buying another. I don't think I can live with the irritating buzzing much longer.
Great Fridge Loads Of Space
We’ve had this fridge for 1 and a 1/2 years now and it has consistently kept everything cold.
The fridge is a good size for us as we have someone living with us and it fits everything very well.
The freezer has a huge amount of space which is great as we do meals and freeze them etc.
Would have loved for it to be IoT enabled but as it’s a 2016? model it isn’t but would love to be able to monitor things via the SmartQ App.
It’s a great fridge with loads of space and it sits beside our new Washing Machine that almost matches in colour and design which is amazing.

Super happy with the price and quality!
This fridge is awesome - I love the colour and its design with the freezer at the bottom - because we are both fairly tall - that just makes everything easier! Its saves electricity too with a high energy saving scale. Trust me you won't regret :)
Purchased at Harvey Norman for $700.00.
Love bottom freezer mount
Only owned a few weeks but very happy with my lg fridge. Great for my back lots of space
We did take a self out. To add more items and heights
Door rings if open too long lol
Great size for 3 adults
Great Energy rating
4 star as door shelves are fixed and crisper a bit small

Great fridge and looks sleek
Perfect fridge, love all of the compartments and the adjustable bottom shelf that can be changed to accommodate taller items. Really spacious interior for the size of the fridge. Love it.

Very good fridge for small family
Amazing fridge for a small family.
Having the freezer on the bottom makes the fridge so much more easier to use.
The veggie drawer is very accessible which is very handy.
The fridge is extremely energy efficient. From what it looks like, our veggies and the occasional piece of fruit stay quite fresh for up to a week.
The freezer offers limited but useful space ( we did end up buying a separate freezer).
Noise wise it's really quiet 90% of the time. Every now and then it sounds like it goes in overdrive and does produce a very noticeable noise. We live in a open plan living so there isn't much to cancel out the noise.
Overall I would say it's a very good and energy efficient fridge.

LG Product Again Marred By Poor Design / Process Control / QA
- Fridge worked well initially.
- Energy efficiency seems good
- Display is useful.
- Temperature control seems good.
- Internal space usage is ok though not great and bin placement options are limited but basically usable.
- Sadly the fridge is now making so much noise it is unbearable. The number of similar reports suggest this is a fundamental issue. Furthermore I now fear for the longevity of this fridge. The symptom can be improved somewhat by firmly pushing something absorbent (eg. cushion) FIRMLY against the side. This suggests someth...ing has worked its way loose (within 6 months !) and is rattling itself to destruction. - One of the bins in the freezer compartment is falling apart after 3 months use (sides disconnect from front) This fridge is difficult to recommend

Fantastic fridge for a small family!
A fantastic fridge for a small family. The 'bottom-mount' fridge has the freezer at the bottom and fridge shelving at eye-level which allows you to see everything at a glance. The freezer is deceptively very spacious allowing you to stock up and freeze food items. The fridge runs quiet and the LED lighting is bright. The retractable shelves are a great added extra. The fridge does stick out a bit further than I expected so make sure you do your measurements. We love it.

Great fridge. No issues. Lots of freezer space and the option for freezer express which I love. Doors can be switched to each side. Shelves remove easily for cleaning. Nice design

Questions & Answers
have to lift the refrigerator door to open it, because it jams on the Freezer door, is there any way I can fix it.
It was working OK two days ago. Thank you. I hope you can help.
Door reversal is an issue. A service person will charge minimum $170 labour only (not counting parts if needed). You can use the existing parts to reverse the door yourself, but need to unscrew the hinge pin and move it to the other side of the hinge bracket. When I tried to do this, the steel on the hex shape on the pin was so soft it instantly rounded off like butter. Replacement parts are available on ebay and other places for under $30 if you look, so I'm hoping for better luck with a replacement hinge bracket and pin. I'm very disappointed that the parts on the fridge were not serviceable for changing sides. The fridge won awards, but I would mark it down for difficult door reversal.
I purchased a Dark Graphite LG fridge a month ago the problem I have is it had glue marks on the door where floor layers pushed the fridge back in after putting vinyl planking on floor. The only thing that would remove the glue was thinners. Not a good idea as a small part of the surface has lost its lovely glossed polished finish. Is it possible to get the gloss finish back and how? The colour has also lightened a little can this also be remedied?
