Wish I never bought this fridge
Bought on 27/09/17, plastic fan in freezer compartment broke on august 2019, now after getting it fixed it’s broken again December 2020, have to wait 2 weeks for tech to look at it so I’m going to throw it out and never buy an LG fridge ever again nor will I recommend anyone to buy one, 3 years old and needs a 3rd fan, not to mention the inconvenience of not having a fridge for days on end because of waiting for technicians,
Purchased in September 2017.
LG FRIDGE IS NOT RELIABLE
I bought this fridge around August 2017. 2 months ago its door shelf is cracked although we used it gently. 1 month ago its leg support is cracked. I do not have enough time to buy a new fridge, and I do not want to use this fridge as a cracked door shelf preventing the door to close. LG provides a two-year warranty, and I need to pay around 100 dollars for replacing these parts. I do not recommend any LG product to people because of this experience.
I has been close to 2 years since I got this fridge and zero complaints so far. Maintains a constant temperature and runs pretty quite. Wish the egg trays were bigger and the fridge was lit from the sides.
Purchased in June 2017.
Colour is graphite and the size is just right. Plenty of space and I don’t even have to turn the temperature up! I put mine in the lowest setting for the freezer and mid in the bottom and it cools the fridge and keeps the food fresh.
Beeps when you accidentally leave the doors open or have kept it open for a while. It comes with a phone app and you can log in and control the fridge set up using your mobile phone.
Great value for money!
Excellet fridge - reduced my power bill by $160 per quarter
So happy with this 460Lt Top mount (freezer at top) fridge. I bouht this when QLD was incentivising upgrades to 4 star rating applicances.
I am so glad I did... it took $160 off my power bill.
The fridge itself is SUPER QUIET.
I am really fussy about the intereior design of frigdes which is partly why I didn’t upgrade earlier, nothing was as good interior wise as my old fridge.
Howver this one is quite nice.
What I like;
It has a pullout shelf at the very top.
it has plenty of room for tall items in the door.
The freezer design has plenty of room (some of them seemed smaller than this one)
Why would you make a weight bearing part out of plastic?
The levelling part under the hinge on the front of the fridge spontaneously gave way a few weeks back. Since then I've been in contact with LG. The first time they sent the wrong part. The second time they said they'd send the right part, then a few days later said they needed to send a technician. Today I waited, the technician came and now I have to wait until they can get the part. So that'll be another day waiting around until they can fix the problem. What a waste of time for a fridge that is barely 18 months old!
Awesome Stylish Fridge
Love this beautiful stylish fridge. It made out whole kitchen look better the day it arrived. It is gorgeous and the finish isn't too bad for fingerprints. The lay out is so clever and the shelve are great. Perhaps the biggest improvement for us is having a freezer that actually freezes properly! It runs quite and I hope to have it for many years
good standard fridge and freezer
No bells or whistles. Good straight forward fridge that is sturdy and practical.
freezer up top, makes ice. Well lit, seems very economical and has excellent energy rating. So much so that we got a $250 rebate from the government for it.
Needed to fit a smallish space and has fitted the bill
Amazing! Colder than cold
This fridge is amazing! Let’s start with the look of the fridge, it’s a stainless look a like which makes it so stylish but yet so easy to clean with no fingerprints or streaks and if I’m going to be honest I never have to wipe mine as you just don’t see any marks.
It’s a very quiet fridge I don’t notice it at all at night or during the day which is another plus side!
Other than that it has ample space inside and could easy cater for a 4 person family!
The one thing that sold me about this fridge and makes me love it even more is it’s great energy rating 4 out of 6 stars and 334 KWh per year average. HUGE money saver!
Great space and quite affordable
Good temperature and very is easy to maintain and clean. Quiet and easy to use so overall a great refrigerator to buy when it comes to storage space, ease of access, noise reduced and low maintenance. Very easy to clean and all the compartments are quite strong and can carry a decent amount of weight in each storage section.
So far, so good
I purchased this fridge last year because I felt my much smaller one which I had for almost 21 years was about to give up the ghost. I had a new kitchen put in a few years ago & had always wanted a s/s fridge but as I wanted to upgrade in size also they were out of my price range. Then I saw the this fridge & I was smitten! I luv the look - it's very stylish & given it is quite a bit bigger than my previous I'm not seeing any significant increase in electricity usage. It is very quiet and I personally like the noise the door alarm makes compare...d to other fridges I've heard. Initially, I had a few problems with the crisper keeping things crisp but once the fridge had settled (couple of months) everything is fine. The fridge & freezer both keep good temps. The only drawback from my point of view is that the crisper does not pull out far enough, even if you have the door fully open & I often find myself having to push larger items (caulis & lettuce in particular) into the opening. Aside from that I honestly couldn't be happier with it.
Really good quality for the price! Bought it a month ago for the new house, quiet and good temp throughout. Only small issue would be, the door side shelves are a little limited in sizing options, we usually have lots of juice and milk, tall sauce bottles but are unable to fit them all.
We too only bought our lg fridge in dec 2017 we also have the problem that when the fridge door closes the freezer pops open just slightly but enough to cause condensation in the freezer will be going to Good Guys and showing them your review, clearly a problem with the manufacture
Very good unit
Had purchased the LG GT-442BPL in mid 2016, good price got it while it's on sale in good guys.
Has not skipped a beat yet. Hopefully it'll last for more years to come.
Fits perfectly in our fridge space in the kitchen.
It beeps when you leave the door open for too long.
This is perfect
Everyone went to the store to look at LG product, because they like it, but the design is so pretty that I thought about it for a long time and chose the product which is not more practical than the design. Though I don't worry about it because it's 10 years ' warranty.
Questions & Answers
Can you remove the shelf that sits over the vegetable and fruit draw?
Hi Carol, I have had my fridge for a very long time, I have only taken the shelf out once, from memory it was not easy, I nearly broke it. So I just clean around the shelf to save pulling it out.
Hope this helps.
Should the bottom compartment for fruit and vegetables be closed?
I don't know what you mean by closed? However it is such a narrow storage space that it's basically useless for large family amounts of fruit and vegetables. Also if you keep fruit and veg on normal shelves, to the rear, they generally freeze. Nothing can sit at the back of the shelves for too long. Freezing is a constant problem in my fridge.
