Fridge died after 2 years! Do not buy one!!

Bought this brand new to fit a narrow space and has worked fine for us, but after just over two years, it suddenly stopped cooling the fridge compartment and we lost a heap of food. There are online LG guides on things to check/try to get it to restart (so they know their products have these failures!) but nothing makes any difference. Waste of money! Show details

Lovely addition

This fridge is so quiet I literally had to take a look to see if it was going. You can’t hear a thing. I love the dark graphite would blend in with any kitchen I’m sure. Very roomy. Great look. I love it. Show details

My GT-279WDC fails to get freezer to -18c and fridge to 3c simultaneously

My Fisher & Paykel GT-279WDC fails to get freezer to -18c and fridge to 3c simultaneously. It is relatively cool in my flat(no heaters) and I always follow manufacturers instructions, etc. Show details

Top 3 worst fridge

3. LG GT-279BPL
CHOICE Expert Rating: 45%
Response to outside temperature score: 8%
10-year running cost: $978
LG is usually quite a good fridge manufacturer, but this model definitely isn't one of its finest moments. It doesn't handle temperature changes well – and in fact it received the lowest score for this test of all three of these dud fridges.
And our experts rated it as just 'Borderline' for keeping food fresh for longer, so don't forget to add the cost of food waste to the $839 purchase price.
Definitely one to avoid. Show details

Perfect fridge for small family

We bought this fridge in 2018 when we moved to Adelaide. Perfect for small living space and small family. Was working good until week ago. No issues before but now making a constant noise. Not sure what was the reason. Show details

Good Fridge for a small Family

It's good fridge for the small family and since it's an inverter fridge the electricity consumption is less and it's very compact good fit for a small apartment less noisy and elegant since it's dark Graphite. The price is also very good which is cheaper compared to others in the market.
The only downside is the freezer section which does not have a good ice tray as the freezer compartment is bit small.
I recommend this product. Show details ·  1

Highly recommend this fridge!

This is a fantastic compact fridge that keeps your food cold, is vert quiet and looks great. It would be ideal for a single or couple and is perfect for apartment living where the fridge space maybe tight. You will not be disappointed with this fridge! Show reply

Great fridge

I bought this fridge and it’s great at keeping the temperature just right! The freezer is fast at freezing and it was a reasonable price. Very happy with my purchase. Show details

Perfect fridge, no complaints

Have this fridge for over two year now and it's still doing excellent. No fussy installation required, just plug in and switch on. Compartments are detachable for cleaning (except for the egg storage part, still can't figure out how to detach it and clean). No noise at all. Show details

Very quiet fridge

I bought it for 3 people using. It look nice and energy efficient (4 stars). It is quiet and easy to use compared with my old Westinghouse fridge. It is really good with the price ~$600.

I usually buy the Samsung fridge before, now realize that LG is a good brand as well.

Good little fridge

I bought it as my first fridge. Good size for one person. Temperature is good. I have a thermometer inside but obviously being a small fridge i dont put semi warm food inside. It quiet and easy to clean glass shelves. Krisper keeps my veggies good for ages. Happy with purchase. Going strong after travelling interstate after several months

LG fridge

It looks good and is smaller than my previous fridge. It looks nice and perfectly matches the rest of my kitchen. It's energy efficient which was my main reason for choosing this model. LG is a good brand. It is quite and easy to clean. For two people this is a perfect fridge.

Great value for money from this fridge

First thing you have to bear in mind is that, this is not a huge fridge. That said, It maintains a good temperature and well spaced. However, during operation it can get a bit noisy which can be heard if you do not have any other sounds running in the background. Very easy to clean and it's a bang for the buck

I’ve emailed LG support many times with my questions and they never answer, hopefully this forum may be successful with one question only - what is the maximum current drawn by the fridge (or maximum power input at the given voltage)? I need this to select my batteries and inverter.

I purchased my fridge in April this year I love it’s size and look but am having issues with the temperature in the fridge section. I have to run it on number 1 or less as it’s so cold that it takes forever to defrost anything. I am concerned there is something wrong with the thermostat or something It is exceptionally cold on the lowest setting. Is this normal?

I would contact LG and have them come and look at it. That way you can be assured while under warranty.
