Good fridge great size freezer
Great fridge especially love the size of the freezer which can fit in way more than my previous one. It is good that the ice cube tray slides and that you can fit flat things under it. Fridge section is good and I can fit 1.25 bottles in the lower shelf. Only down side is the vegetable crisper draw is slim so not a huge amount fits in it. Also you have to open the door of the fridge to fully open it. This does not bother me as the rest of the fridge is great.

Basic fridge nothing fancy
Purchased in 2017.
Pros = = = Even temperature, easy to clean, adjustable shelving in fridge and freezer.
Cons ====Ice cube container takes up room in freezer and knob that turns to remove ice-cubes soon breaks. No butter conditioner. Non adjustable door shelves .... two door shelves are quite shallow two have more depth but do not hold tall bottles (suggest you take tall bottle with you when looking to purchase to see whether shelves can accommodate it) No specific place to store eggs. Vegetable compartment is quite narrow and drawer does n...

Bought this fridge April 2019 and already the plastic around shelving and crisper drawer is cracking/splitting and breaking off. The "fresh zone" fish & meat compartment at the top of the fridge section freezes anything we put in there. We have adjusted the temperature of both fridge and freezer as per lg suggested temperatures, but still freezing. The vegetable drawer is way too narrow and small for a 516 ltr fridge. Can't even fit an iceberg lettuce in there. Whilst the fridge motor is quiet, the door alarm is annoying when cleaning the fridge, and an option to turn it off would be good. Very disappointed overall. Expected superior quality and reliability from lg.

Waste of money
Only just over 3 months old and temperature control problems. Fridge and freezer go warm and start to dripping water all boxes in freezer go soggy freezer drips. Fridge warm all products not cold. Eg bottle of coke on 3rd shelf after 2 days still warmish not even cold. Had to waste so much food. Install LG thinq app to do diagnostic report came up with error rS code cooling not working. Turned off and on again to reboot but not getting cold enough as first then 2 days later it starts warming and dripping water again. Wastes all out food again ...As warm. Good guys where we got fridge say repair man will replace control board - mother board out of good will. NOT GOOD ENOUGH only just over 3 months old we don't want second hand parts put the in it to repair. We have video or fridge, freezer dripping and messages from repair man stating control board problem but good guys tell us different

The fridge is great, it looks real nice and sleek with the silver on the door a nice tough. Fridge is roomy and operates well, have had it for 2 months and had no issues so far

For a top mount fridge 516L there is heaps of room in both freezer and fridge.
Shelves are made of glass which is a big plus factor. Very well set out. Controls are easy to follow
- 516L Top Mount GT-515WDC (White)
This is an excellent refridgerator and receives top marks for price, space (good for a family of 4 or 4.5 or a spare fridge if you have a gigantic family), and quiet operation. There is door cooling technology and ample freezer space. All in all, a top, top fridge!

Not built for Australians
The fridge works fine and has plenty of shelf room.
I purchased it on line (from local shop) based on the specs, next time I will go to the retailer and have a good look.
The things I don't like are.
The crisper opening is too narrow, you can't fit an iceberg lettuce or a whole cauliflower in it.
The door shelves... the only way to fit a 1.25l or 2l soft drink bottle in is to remove either or both of the egg shelves. very poor design. We removed the egg shelves and keep the eggs in the cardboard continer on a shelf.
The freezer does not get do...
Purchased in July 2018 at The Good Guys Physical store.
This fridge is generous in size and easy to open and close. The shelves can be easily moved to customise the layout. The temperature is consistent in all of the compartments

Great fridge, runs quietly, no worries fridge
We purchased this fridge in 2015 and have had no problems. It is easy to clean inside and out. Shelves easy to move and it always keeps food at the correct temperature, the motor is quiet you cannot hear it running (we have an open plan kitchen living room). Big freezer and lots of space.
Good fridge but not excellent
It is a good fridge but not great. The shelving for bottles on the door side could have been designed to fit more tall bottles. The water dispenser is not electrical pumped like those in the top range models. The ice container in the freezer is not removable and it gets in the way when you try to store more stuff in the freezer.

Nice and bright, small freezer door shelves and small veggie drawer
Pros: Super quiet, great ice tray, large freezer for its size, great price. Sensible shelving in fridge door. Very happy with service from Appliances Online.
Cons: Freezer door shelves have a lip that faces inwards at the top which limits the size of jars you can put in there...my much smaller previous fridge held bigger jars than this one. Not a major issue, just an observation. Also the top of this fridge has a big silver thing on top (they have made the freezer door sit higher so it hides it for shorter people like me, but taller peo...ple might have to look at something less than pretty. It also means that the top of the fridge isn't a completely flat surface. Small veggie drawer...really small. To remove it fridge door need to be fully open. We store some larger veggies like cauliflowers in a bag (that we wash and dry and reuse) on the bottom shelf of main fridge.

Perfect and affordable
I purchased a fridge one day before Christmas time as my Hisense one blew up just my luck. There was so many to pick from but I knew the LG brand has been around for years so I chose that! I couldn’t ask for a better fridge it’s amazing & the freezer space is just perfect as I have children and freeze our snacks!
Good fridge and technology
Very nice finish with the colour / layer. Having replaced my old useless fridge that was leaking, it's very quiet and the doors automatically shut themselves upon a gentle or hard push. Very easy to clean the interior and exterior. The only downside to this fridge is that the fruit and vegetable storage has slots for dividers, which didn't come with the fridge =( furthermore, the door side shelves aren't very versatile in placement.. It doesn't fit anything taller than a 2L milk bottle which was sad! They could've designed the 2nd shelf to be adjustable to fit a few tall bottles (beside the egg compartment).
This fridge is so very easy to clean inside and out and it always keeps food at the correct temperature, the motor is very quiet you cannot hear it running and we all love the easy access to cold water, especially the grandchildren. The outside of fridge is very smart too.
Questions & Answers
We purchased the LG fridge 7 months ago and had issues of ice build up in freezer compartment as its suppose to be frost free so they took fridge away and gave us another today and there is ice starting to build up already in freezer is this normal
We've had no problem with Ice build up and we've had it over 1 year. We keep the freezer pretty full with all sorts of products.

The LG 515L series includes three different fridges, ranging in various colours and materials: black steel, silver stainless steel, and white. At 515L, each fridge has the same capacity and is recommended for a household of 4 to 5 people.
There is a price difference between each fridge, with the white fridge starting from around $1300, ranging up to the black-finish fridge, which costs around $1400. The price difference is due to different materials, not capacity. Out of the three, the black-steel fridge boasts the highest rating on ProductReview.
The 515L offers similar features to other LG fridges, including:
- 4-star energy rating: A high rating compared to many other types of fridges, which typically have much lower energy-ratings.
- Features strategically placed air vents, including vents at the back of the fridge and within the fridge door. According to the website, items stored in the door cool up to 35% faster than LG fridges without this door-cooling featuring.
- ‘smart diagnosis’ feature, which is activated by pairing the fridge with a smartphone. If there are any issues, this feature allows the fridge to figure out what the problem is.
