We really like this fridge. It is solidly built and has lots of storage. We really like the slim in door ice maker. The freezer is quite large too. Water and ice in the door is great but I do wish the water was chilled. While you can open the left side door by itself you really can't close the left door without opening the right door slightly. This is just a minor inconvenience though. It is also super quiet. I'm sure its well insulated because I swear I hardly ever hear in running. The 10 year warranty on the compressor motor, which I hope I never have to use, was a good selling point as our previous refrigerator of a different brand bit the dust after 9 years. Its a great refrigerator.

I bought LG thinking it had a good reputation and was reliable. It has been a good refrigerator, except that after 16 months, I have an error code (1f) something to do with the ice maker. Now, I'm regretting buy a refrigerator with all these features. Old refrigerators without electronic features just seem to run forever. Aggravated that I spent so much on this and now have to spend more to fix it. Life is NOT good and shouldn't have problems this soon.

              Comments about LG 28 Cu Ft White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

              We bought this frig Labor Day weekend. I really like that the ice and water are separated. My husband was always forgetting to move the switch and would get water when he wanted ice with our old frig. I love the door buzzer when doors are left open for too long. The only two things that I would change would be 1) when getting ice or water being able to open the other door and look in the refrigerator. and 2) the top basket in the freezer be metal. We have NOT had any problem with the plastic basket in the freezer but would just prefer metal. These two things are the only reason I am not giving 5 stars. Overall, we all really like this product and am very satisfied!

                  I bought this refrigerator on black friday & absolutely love it! It has plenty of room & I love the slim ice maker in the door. The LED lights are amazing & I love that it dings when the doors are left open.

                  Bought 2 months ago. Can store 3 large pizzas in their boxes on the second shelf!! Love the space. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is the small amount of ice it produces. We always run out.

                      Comments about LG 28 Cu Ft White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

                      I bought this fridge based on features and the claim from LG that it is quiet. The features are there but it is unbelievably loud. In fact it vibrates and shakes so bad the bottles inside rattle together and you can hear that throughout the kitchen. I have checked the level many times, made sure it was clean but nothing helps.

                      I bought this 3 years ago when I could barely afford it. Since then, it has been a nightmare. Compressor is still under warranty, but oh yeah - it still costs $600 to put the part in - out of my pocket. NEXT, the control board fails - another $400. By my math, LG products cost you twice. Once when you buy, and again if you try to keep them for more than 2-3 years when they self-destruct.

                      Now 2nd time will need major repair. Freezer somehow causes a layer of ice in bottom of fridge, which then thaws and runs out all over into the freezer and the kitchen floor

                      Purchased February 2016 and by November air filter light came on. Also, ice maker makes very small ice cubes and amount, and, ice gets jammed in dispenser. Love the retracting second shelf so when you need to store additional items you can. Produce bins are good. Slide out meat locker is a dream. The sliding drawer in freezer is wonderful to keep smaller items and leave the larger area for larger items.
