Do not buy, waste of money

Do not buy this fridge. The freezer is over freezing and causing frost inside the food packages and spoiling all my food. I did have technician come out and investigate only to tell me its normal for this freezer, however in my opinion it is faulty as frost should not form inside the packages within a week. Show details

Do Not Buy from LG

Bought this fridge for our AIRBNB holiday rental. Died 2 years and 3 months after purchase and unfortunately whilst we had a guests on site. Had to do an emergency new fridge delivered, reimburse guest for loss of all food and call our own technician for $110 who diagnosed the PC/Electrical Board was dead and even a replacement would only last a short life span. LG only offer online chat support. Have had Westinghouse and Fisher Paykel in our main residence for over 15 years with no issues. Fridge should not have died after the small 2 years of use and only 3 months out of warranty. Never again LG!!! Show details

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.  Show details ·  1

Disappointing

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. Show details

Icy cold

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

Total upgrade!

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! Show details

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.

Details

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.
