Very good fridge / freezer combo

We have our fridge for over 2 years. So far, I can't tell anything bad about it. The layout is good, very specious inside. The fridge is easy to clean, you can pull easily all the drawers and shelves out and put it through the dishwasher. A while ago we had to replace the water tank, the item was easy to get online from different retailers (big price differences). I can highly recommend this fridge, can't go wrong. Show details

Avoid LG linear compressors

stylish fridge - loved the water/ice maker. it has a noisy pump but i got used to it.
Unfortunately the compressor died after 5 years - everything in the fridge had to be thrown out.
Theses dud compressors are a known problem - there is a class action happenng in USA because of the same issue. After 2 weeks without a fridge and a visit from an LG technician I fought for compensation - a partial refund was offered.
Ive bought a more dependable appliance ---- never again LG Show details

The noise from the ice maker is too much!

We have had the fridge for about 10 months. The fridge itself is fine and does the job. But the noise from the ice maker is too much. We barely use the ice dispenser or the water, but it makes a loud noise continually on and off all day and night! I had read about the noise issues before purchasing, but this is worse than I had imagined. Show details

Piece of garbage

Fridge broke down inside 12 months in the middle of summer and had to be replaced. Still trying to sort through the issues 3 weeks later. LG customer service are next to useless. What they should be doing is removing broken fridge and replacing with new fridge. What they are doing is giving store credit and I have to pay for delivery of new fridge and removal of old one. Don't waste your time with LG. Show details

Noisy water pump spoils good unit

Just bought the LG 635L side by side with non-plumbed water/ice maker. It looks nice in SS and the interior is well equipped with great lighting. The downside is the noise from the water dispenser. LG requested a video plus photo of invoice and internal label. The LG-supplied process for uploading all this is flawed and would not accept the requested mp4 video format making it necessary to email it instead After all that messing around LG said the noise is "normal". If so, they need a better engineer to design their fridges. The old LG it replaced never made a sound dispensing water but clonked like an old tractor when making ice. Think I'll try a different brand next time.

4yrs of life only

Fridge worked well for 4 yrs and suddenly died. The display said temps were ok but it wouldn’t even connect to the internet and self diagnose ( previously worked). Lost a lot of food.
Ice maker died first then the motor got loud working hard. Clearly crashes fast and furiously. Prob go for more reliable brands like whirlpool next as I expect more than 4 years for that sort of money. Show details

6 years old and still going strong!

This fridge is amaze - it looks so shiny and sleek. The best feature I think is that it is unplumbed - you simply fill up a jug that fits in the fridge and you have ice and cold water whenever you need! It's very spacious with plenty of room for frozen food as well as the fridge side and plenty big enough for my partner and I. My only issue with it is that the ice mechanism can be a bit noisy when it's doing its thing, but the sound only last for 5 seconds or so. The compartments are adjustable heights as well and it's easy to clean. Show details ·  1

Can this be defrosted GS-L668MBNL or does it have turned off and let nature do its thing ? I have an ice plug blocking the Shute of the ice maker.

Details

Features:

  • Fridges in the LG 668L Side by Side Door GS-L668 Series are available in two options: plumbed and non-plumbed. Plumbed means the fridge needs to be connected to the water line by a plumber, and non-plumbed doesn’t need to be installed by a plumber, as the water is dispensed from a tank.
  • It has tempered glass shelves, which are stronger and more durable than ordinary glass.
  • The fridge includes various compartments such as door baskets, drawers, and an egg box to keep food neat and organised.
  • You can adjust fridge settings via mobile LG app, so you can alter the temperature from home or remotely.
  • An alarm will go off to let you know if you've left the fridge door open.

What reviewers liked about this fridge:

  • The voluminous size of this fridge provided plenty of space for cold foods, as well as frozen goods in the freezer compartment.
  • The filtered water and crushed ice features were recurring points of praise among reviewers, with many claiming they couldn’t stop coming back for more chilled water.
  • A budget-friendly option, the non-plumbed fridge was a suitable choice for those who were hesitant to splash out on the additional expenses of a plumbed fridge.

Something to consider:

  • The plumbed fridge is $100 more expensive than the non-plumbed fridge. Plus, don’t forget to budget in the additional cost of hiring a plumber to install the plumbed fridge, which usually costs between $100 to $500.
