Buying a new refrigerator - looking at LG French door model ?
« on: August 06, 2008, 09:08:29 AM »
I am looking at purchasing an LG french door type refrigerator( w/o door water and ice dispenser) for about $ 1500 . The shelving system and track on the freezer seems more well thought out the the Amana , Kenmore etc ( ok know it is subjective ) . How do the LG appliances compare in reliability / parts / repair cost / DIY repair potential  compare to the other major brands ?   -Thanks

Hi rkpatt,

I posted a reply to your other post, but wanted to add a little more information here about the LG refrigerators.

I have had to replace a lot of LG ice makers this year. Water would get into the head of the ice maker and freeze.
Also a few control board, but not many.

I would say LG has a good line of products.

Being the LG refrigerator your looking at is around $1500 you may want to see what a extended warranty will cost you.

Please let us know what you decided to buy.
Hope you find our site helpful.

I think LG is crappy, hard to get parts where are. Wiring diagrams crappy.   Please do buy, provides tech's with work!!

As a whole ALL companies have had issues and do have issue. It's how that company stands behind the product and fixes the issue. They all break down. I have never had an issue getting parts for LG. I personally love working on LG products. I grab the model number DL the tech book from tech assist and BOOM I have everything I need. It's well thought out easy to understand. If I get stumped their very helpful tech line is just a phone call away. Wait time for their tech line is usually under 2mins to talk to someone, other companies can't say that. Heck the tech line will even give me part numbers, while other companies won't/can't.
Consider an extended warranty and add a surge protector to the fridge to help prevent possible electrical spikes down the line.
All in all, more bells and whistles, more problems...
happy shopping

I use to be an LG servicer.  Terrible company from a servicers point of view.  With that said... I recommend that you go to the LG web page and contact your local appliance parts store to see if there is a servicer in your area.  Warranties are worthless if you can't get a servicer to make the repair.  Stick with brands that you can get serviced.  Whirlpool, GE, Frigidare etc.
 
Good luck
