We are very pleased with this refrigerator. We traditionally chose a side-by-side for our refrigerator design but decided to switch to the french-door style in hopes of making up for some annoyances the side-by-side offers. Our primary complaint with the side-by-side is that we would always have to move items around or pull some out to get to other items in the back. Since the french-door LG refrigerator has two doors at the top, access to your grocery items is much easier. The lighting (LED) is bright and doesn't provide the problematic shadow areas that some side-by-sides include. We also like the ice maker that is integral with the door for the LG french-door ... definately a space saver but still allows you to get both ice (crushed or cubed) and water. The count-down clock (in months) is also a nice touch so you can actually plan ahead and get a replacement water filter. Other models simply have a light that comes on or a light that provides you very little warning. This unit is also very quiet (an absolute necessity for a refrigerator). If you have seen complaints before about the noise of this refrigerator, check the model numbers. An older french-door style version did have an issue with their compressor, however, this issue does not exist in the LFX25975ST. Finally, you may still be wondering about the details that makes the LG a better choice. Here are two for consideration. First, check the seals in between the top two doors. These simply flex when you close the refrigerator to form a tight seal. Compare this to the door seal on other brands and you will notice that they include a plastic/metal bar that extends when the door is closed and retracts when the door is open. LG didn't use this mechanism in their door design since the "bar" type can be problematic. When the bar is extended, it can also limit your access to the refrigerator. The LG's design is trouble-free and easier to clean. Finally, LG even included a rubber strip at the bottom of the refrigerator to prevent lint, dust, and pet hair from getting under the refrigerator which potentially clogs the evaporator coils. The rubber strip doesn't eliminate all dust, but helps minimize the amount that gets trapped under your refrigerator. Ask yourself, "How much fun do I have when I have to vacuum out the coils in my refrigerator?" That is attention to detail. My only con, is that the temperature display reflects the temperature you want the refrigerator/freezer to be set to ... it does not reflect the actual temperatures. This would be a nice feature to see in future models but is the only con we can come up with.

We bought this refrigerator a few months back. I was set on a bottom freezer and I liked the eaze of having ice and water outside the door. However, the ice and water are somewhat hard to use without making a mess. The water dispenser is touchy and sits out so that it virtually impossible to not splatter. The inside of the refridge is hard to organize. There is very little door storage space as compared to a side-by side. Almost the entire left side is taken up with the ice and water dispenser. It is difficult to organize shelves so that you can get to items easily and only a few tall items can fit in. We are still struggling on where to stand up an open wine bottle.

EXTRA COLD, EXTRA ROOM
from Texas, United States
Comments about LG LFX25975ST Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:
I've had this refrigerator for a little over a year and I love it. There is so much more room than in a side by side style. It keeps food very cold. I didn't get the 3rd drawer style because I didn't think I would get into that drawer that much, but we do. I'd consider that option next time. The water dispenser is a little odd, because of the location (in the very front of the opening- the ice comes out at the back) but works very well. It doesn't make as much ice as some, but has a bin in the freezer where you can dump the ice already made. I knew this already before purchasing and it really hasn't been a problem. I use lots of ice and it is sufficient for me. If another ice loving person is here, then I need to dump the ice bin at night to make extra ice.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Would be 5 stars if filtered water came out faster
from Sacramento, CA, United States
We love the fridge. Plenty of room for what we use (after removing one of the shelves). The controls are easy to use and the filter is simple to replace. The only gripe we have is the water dispenser is slow. Compared to other refrigerators that friends/family have, this seems like it's about 1/2 the speed of theirs. It does the job, but it gets tiring having to hold an ever-increasing weight longer than necessary.
This fridge is junk
The condensate drain plug constantly freezes over so the water drains into your freezer (and then all over the floor during defrost). The also ice maker stopped working.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Mount Union, PA 17066, USA
Ice Maker in my fridge quit working right after the warranty was up and i am looking for parts and can't even find a parts breakdown of the unit. I am not gonna pay someone to replace the fan in my fridge when it is only a couple screws and a plug to replace it. had 1F error code which is ice fan which is the fan that blows the cold air into the slim plus ice system on the door to make it cold enough to freeze the ice. When the fan quits you can't get ice or water.
Ice maker and freezer problems
from Oregon, USA
For the first year there were no issues. I begin to notice water pooling in front of the freezer door. After a thorough investigation, I determined the freezer was collecting water in the bottom and it was leaking onto the floor. Once a week I clear the ice to avoid the damage. The ice-maker in the door consistently jams and has to be emptied and cleared.
No issues so far and it works great
from Atlanta, GA
This replaces a GE side by side and the 3 door french style is so much more convenient. Only the left side door space is somewhat constrained by size of items that can be placed there, but having a smaller ice dispenser paves way for a lot more space inside.
We love it!
from Tamarac, FL, USA
We needed a white refrigerator maximum 34" and wanted a water dispenser in the door. We found this unit and fell in love. It even has the ice maker in the door so that you don't lose any shelf space. If I could change anything, I would make the deli drawer into two drawers, then you wouldn't have to open both doors to access it.
This product provides numerous amenities
By Aunt Mar
from Lake City, Fl
Along with two controlled vegetable/fruit trays, there is an additional center tray and a long deli or fresh meat tray. The multiple shelves provide additional options for storage. The freezer space is much larger than I ever anticipated. We do not use that much ice, so the extra ice storage space in the freezer also provides a great space for ice cream.
Great features if they worked
from Lancaster, CA, USA
I was very excited about getting this refrigerator.First we had a recall on it along with the refrigerator I freezing everything including eggs etc. We are going on our 2nd repairman call with high hopes tht he can find the problem. I think it would be a great unit if it worked . The bottom freezer is a great idea. I am sure we will enjoy it once it is fixed or replaced.
This product has just what I wanted in a fridge
from Glen Mills, PA
This product is just what I was looking for. Three doors, ice maker in the door with a water dispenser. The fact that you can put a pitcher under and dispense the ice and then the water is great. The inside has plenty of room and you can change the shelves according to your needs. I love the two shelves that slide back for taller items. The freezer has plenty of room and is easy to find and get things out.
