However, LG has started to compete with these brands in recent years, adding a few innovations and high-tech features that rival those of other brands, releasing the world's; First Internet Refrigerator in 2000 and the world's; first Internet washing machine in 2001.
LG is also a TRUSTED brand when it comes to television and mobile handsets. The company manufactures a line of refrigerators through its electronics division.
LG Refrigerators Key Features
Certain features make LG unique among its competitors. A few of the features that have been shown to generate favorable nods from customers include:-
- Multi-Airflow System
- Jet Freezer Drawers
- Ice Beam Cooling
- Optichill Drawer
- Optibin Crispers
Multi Air Flow
The Multi-Airflow System is UNIQUE to LG, despite the fact that other brands seem to copy this feature. This is because LG has installed AIR VENTS in the refrigerator shelves to keep the temperature inside the unit as CONSTANT as possible.
This is coupled with the Ice Beam Cooling feature in the frozen foods section in LG side-by-side models, which come with added Cool Air Vents for UNIFORM Cool Temperatures.
Jet Freezer Drawers attract customers for their DOUBLE FREEZING TIME. The units have a separate drawer inside the freezer meant for Rapid Freezing to seal in freshness in half the time.
Most LG models also now sport the Energy Star seal, which is fast becoming the norm in the appliance industry. Because units that have this seal consume 15% less energy, they can really help users SAVE on Energy Bills.
LG Refrigerator Product Types Available
The company produces a number of
- Side-by-Side Refrigerators.
- Bottom Freezer Refrigerators.
- French-Door Refrigerators.
The side-by-side units offer AMPLE SPACE, are ENERGY EFFICIENT, and produce LESS NOISE compared to other units in the same brand.
Side by Side
A typical example of a popular side-by-side LG refrigerator is the LG LSC26905TT. This particular refrigerator unit has 26 cu. ft. storage space, is a side-by-side refrigerator, and has external water dispenser that comes in titanium finish.
This model comes with a TALL water dispenser, SLIDE-OUT spill protector glass shelving, easy-to-read LED displays, and door baskets with adjustable GALLON size.
It is also one of the QUIETEST of the LG models.
The only consumer complaint with this model is that the freezers of some units start encountering problems after just a year of use.
Expensive Frigidaire Refrigerator
A more expensive unit is the LG LSC27991TT, which is a 26.2 cu.ft. side-by-side refrigerator with LCD TV. At over $3,000, it comes in a titanium finish and an LCD TV.
The unit is worth its price with all the features that this model sports — from the 26.4 cubic foot capacity to the tilting freezer door bins. It does come with a few other features that most homeowners can do without.
As expected, the typical consumer complaint with this model is usually the cost.
Another good option is the LG LFX21960, a 20.5 cu. ft. bottom freezer refrigerator that comes with French doors. Customers like this model lay-out, because it allows them AMPLE SPACE to store fresh produce in the top section and all their frozen food in the bottom.
The unit also comes with spill-proof glass shelving and SmoothTouch external LCD controls that monitor freezer and refrigerator temperatures along with Optibin Crispers and a Durabase Freezer Drawer. However, this model is often plagued with various complaints concerning users who are not happy about the icemaker.
Some users report that the icemaker stops working after 5 months of use. There has also been reports concerning problems with the unit’s defrost gasket.
Some are also complaining that the model cannot be fitted inside preexisting cabinets in the kitchen despite the company’s claim that it can.
Popular French-Door Units
Another popular French door unit is the LG LFC23760ST< which is 22.6 cu. ft. stainless steel, French door, bottom freezer refrigerator. It boasts of a stylish, stainless steel exterior, multi-air floor cooling system, 2 humidity crispers, a door alarm, and a Lodecibel quiet operation.
It also has ample interior space even inside the fridge, with the interior also sporting removable, tempered glass shelving. The drawback is the lack of ample space for tall items such as wine bottles.
Common problems include too cool freezer temperatures that freeze everything into solid ice and non-functional freezer compartment doors and faulty hinges. However, priced at a little over $1,000, the model is a good buy for its features and its stylish look.
Another popular model is the LG LMX25981, which is a 25 cu. ft. French door refrigerator with self-contained ice system and 2 bottom freezer drawers.
It also has the tallest water dispenser ever to be placed in a refrigerator unit standing at 12 inches. The model is stylish, with recessed LED lighting, hidden hinges, and curved contours. The unit’s interior also differs from other LG units with the ice shelf relocated to the door, freeing up the entire top shelf.
Its 4 compartment crisper system allows for more versatility in arranging beverages, with an extra container for more bottles or cans.
The LG LSC27926ST is a side-by-side model that is known for its ample space. With its wheels, there is no worry about moving the unit from one room to another.
It also keeps its surface pristine and smudge free with an anti-fingerprint coating. Typical complaints usually heard from customers involve the icemaker, which can be too noisy in some units.
Common complaints with LG refrigerator units are the early malfunctions of the built-in ice maker, which, in some cases bails out way before the warranty on the unit expires.
Customers can contact the LG customer service center for support whenever any problem with their purchase arises.
