Plumbed fridge is more costly
Absolutely amazing fridge has everything
This fridge has crushed and cubes ice, cold water and has so much room it is the best fridge I’ve ever owned. Easy to clean and maintain. Easy on electricity and a digital light up display for the temperature etc. The fridge fits perfectly in a small apartment complex. Thanks
This is perfect
This is really good fridge, don’t need to to plumbing so we can save money for plumbing, it has less fridge that is good as well. Get ice, ice cube, ice crushed from it. It has water container there u Just need to fill water. That’s why it is perfect choice
Great product and reliable product
We like our fridge, very modern look, easy to clean and good temperature in all compartments. In terms of noise, sometimes it makes a bit of noise, but I noticed that happen when we don't have water stored in the fridge.
I would recommend to buy this fridge if you want a stylish and reliable fridge. Be aware you have enough space on each side for easy door access.
We were looking for non plumbed ice and water , we got this one, we are so excited that we don't have to reopen ceiling for our new house and we can still have plumbed ice and water,. It easy to use, great aesthetic looks and good value for money.
It is such a great purchase and so much room. The water dispenser is extremely easy to fill and the ice produces constantly. My kids are always filling there cups up and the ice never runs out. Also the crushed ice is awesome !! The depths in the shelves is great.
We have two fridges and this is our primary fridge it just has been so good , the delivery people were not whom caused damage to our flooring and door (JB HIFI) , but the fridge is awesome , ice / water machine is excellent , its quiet and super cold where and when it needs to be :-) 5 out of 5
LG value and functionality
Selectable temperature, smart diagnostics, non plumbed ice machine and heaps of space with an energy rating of 553 kWg per year. Handles are a bit different and takes a while to get used to but for smaller children would find it great! Only noise is the ice making machine but it's not overly noisy. It has stainless front and very easy to clean!
We decided to purchase this fridge because of the mostly excellent reviews it has received on this and other websites; and because of previous good experiences with a couple of other LG products. The fact that it was available at a discounted price ($1308) during a Bing Lee sale was a bonus.
The one negative point was its appearance: stainless steel has had little appeal for me because it always shows fingermarks & smudges so easily; and this model also has a large amount of shiny black plastic around the ice & water dispenser, which I did...n’t like at all. I also would also have preferred more shelves in the door of the fridge section. However since my husband wasn't put off by these drawbacks (in fact he actually likes the stainless steel look), we decided to go ahead with the purchase anyhow. One of the best features of this model it is that it keeps perfect temperatures in both the fridge and freezer sections ¬– which I know for certain because being a bit of a sceptic I left a laboratory thermometer inside the two compartments over several 5-6 hour periods, and found that the actual temperatures stayed within 0.5 degree C of the temps that had been selected (-18C and 3C). This is a fairly big unit and it takes up a lot of kitchen floor space, but it does has plenty of room inside, and the shelves and drawers seem to be well constructed and are easy to clean. It is also much quieter than expected, and apart from an occasional noise when the ice cubes are being made it is almost inaudible even when you are standing right next to it. Surprisingly, the stainless steel finish doesn’t seem to show fingermarks etc anywhere near the extent that I was dreading. The non-plumbed water and ice feature works pretty well – the chilled water is a bit slow, but the blocks of ice or crushed ice are dispensed quickly, without the bother of bashing cubes out of ice trays. For us this non-plumbed feature is great because the local town tap water is not pleasant (the taste of the chlorine etc added to it by Hunter Water is really noticeable) and we have always used water brought down from our farm rainwater tanks for drinking. Have found that it’s really easy to top up the water tank inside the fridge without pulling the whole thing out, by simply lifting up the flap at the top of the unit to fill it with a couple of bottles of tank water.
How have I lived without this fridge
Honestly don’t know how I’ve lived without this fridge
It’s so so so so so pretty - it doesn’t get dirty easily - I have a one and a half year old and all his grimy finger print marks don’t show up and loving the plumbed water and ice - def recommend
Really good non-plummed fridge freezer
Great fridge freezer. I love the ice maker / cold water feature. It is connected to the WI Fi and the other day the fridge sent a message to let me know the fridge door is open!
Only fault, the doors swing open wide which provides great access, but the door swung open into and hit a cupboard door, putting a small dent in the fridge door. Very quiet, and just the weird noise once or twice a dayvwhen the water is pumped to the ice maker.
10-10 product love it!
I am on a rent to buy contract for this item, since i have had it i havr found it to keep food fresher for longer as ir mainrains its temperature. It is extremely quiet but does make a slight sound when the ice drops into the ice despencer. Being a non plumbed water despensing unit it carries 4 litres making filling easy. It is easy to clean inside and out and is simple to operate touch pad options
No plumbing required and still water and ice ready to go!
This fridge was not my first option. However, the fact that no plumbing is required to have a water and ice dispenser really got my attention. I went to Bing Lee and reviewed what other said in this website.
I found it very spacious. No noise at all, except when there is internal ice making. It comes with 2 years warranty and 10 years with the motor.
I think it would be the perfect fridge it they would add those small windows to access some of the things you have in the door without opening the fridge. In any case, I think this is a 5 star product.
Bing Lee offered free $20 delivery fee on a Saturday.
Fantastic fridge, very reasonable price
I don't know how i survived without an automatic ice maker before, and now that i have one there is no going back! There is very few fridges on the market that have an automatic ice maker without needing plumbing. This fridge is just fantastic, and the water canister is so small it doesn't take up much room. Absolutely love this fridge.
So far so good!
No problems with fridge so far. The adjustable feet were benifishal. You can easily tweak the temp true. Ice on cools quick. there is good shelving and draws for fruit and veg they are not flimsy, unlike my old fridge. Power consumption Is similar t my previous fridge but would recommend.
Best customer service
Excellent non plumbed fridge. Lg customer service is the best. Had older model that died on on me 1 year outside the warranty got this as the replacement no fuss and they collected old one . Highly recommend lg for their superior support and after sales care. Did not expect for this to happen
Really good non-plumbed fridge
I bought this side-by-side non-plumbed fridge from Appliances Online 5 months ago. I have been very happy with it. I bought it primarily because I wanted ice and water dispensers, but could not have the fridge connected to the plumbing. This is the only non-plumbed ice and water dispensing fridge I could find. I previously had a plumbed fridge (Samsung) in my previous house.
I have found this one to be great. No problems at all. It is a little bit of a chore to fill the water tank. For a while I was filling it daily. I have adjusted b...
Perfect fridge for growing family
Purchased from Harvey Norman. Found the fridge extremely spacious inside. The fridge was quiet at night without the regular hum which accompanies many units. Shelves can be moved around to accommodate various items, giving customisation which our last fridge didn't have. The fridge has never had any technical issues since we purchased it and would recommend to others.
The fridge maintains good temperature in all compartments. It is very quiet. The compartments are spacious and in good design which fully use all the space. Kids love the chilled water and ice cube system. The adjusting buttons on the front door are very handy. It is easy to clean.
This is an amazing fridge freezer, i love mine. Its quiet. And easy to clean.. The water is always cold and loving the fact that ice is on hand all the time with no issues on hot days, the temps are easy maintained and it can be operated from a mobile phone if need be.
This fridge is very spacious and nifty. The tall water dispenser makes it super easy to refill larger water containers. The handles are set within the door to minimise smudges on the fridge which is handy. The storage boxes can fit a lot of food items but still make it easy to view all contents of the fridge.
The size is good for a couple of social vegetarians. Enough space for vegetables, dairy and drinks and the ice maker is great, although it's too easy to put ice into a glass and then fill with bourbon. It's very hard to not give the ice maker another wrap......it's the best feature.Quiet enough and any ice grinding sounds are just a reminder to get over there with an empty glass.You need to fill the water for the ice and cold water dispenser (not plumbed thank goodness). The freezer is a generous size and the many shelves make it easy to find t...hings. We have had it for over a year and all the functions are working. Instant temp. readings when you open the door to let you know the state of affairs internally. Temperatures within the fridge seem fine(without doing a scientific study) that is the dairy section, the freezer, the vegie drawers and the general fridge population. All in all a good buy.
Great product, would recommend
This fridge is great - chills down quickly and quiet to open and close. Can do large Costco runs with plenty of deep storage. Purchased the fridge after looking at similar french door fridges but this is far more functional than others I inspected. Would recommend - ensure fridge cavity is big enough to house
Best Fridge that I have owned
Fridge is very quiet, except for when it is pumping water to make either ice, or someone is filling up a drink. But normal use it is basically silent which is good.
Easy to clean
Only downside is that it is a very wide fridge but for us, it did not matter.
Love my fridge
This fridge is excellent. We have found with our family of four the water runs out quicker than normal over the summer holidays. Occasionally the ice will go over the edge of the cup if not held to the top. For the price of the fridge I give it a five start rating. Love it!
This is Perfect
Love the way it is non plumbed Have had two plumbed fridges and both of them flooded our kitchen this fridge is easy to refill and the crushed and cubed ice is great would recommend this fridge
The fridge is very quiet you only hear when the ice is being made
Very easy to clean
I am very happy with this fridge and would highly recommend this product
Questions & Answers
Boy, I wish I had read these reviws before I purchased. We decided to go with the non-plumbed version as we weren't sure if we had plumbing available for the fridge. But the pump noise is unbearable...... it is waking us at all hours.
Can you please let me know plumbed version has a quiter pump?
Did you think to ring them for answers?
Hi received our new fridge yesterday, removed the ice dispenser (not needed) and fitted extra shelf.
Tried the cold water dispenser this morning and the water is not cold, do I need to refit the ice Dispenser?
Get an answer from our members and LG representatives
Winner of the 2018 ProductReview Award, the LG 668L features two fridges to choose from: plumbed and non-plumbed, depending on your budget and household needs. This LG Side by Side range offers similar features to other Side by Side ranges by LG, such as the LG 668L Side by Side series.
- 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.
- Tempered glass shelves, which are stronger and more durable than ordinary glass
- Includes various compartments such as door baskets, drawers, and an egg box to keep food neat and organised
- Adjustable fridge settings via mobile LG app, so you can alter the temperature from home or remotely
- An alarm that’s triggered if you accidentally leave the door open, in order to prevent food from spoiling
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.
Points 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.
