The LG LFC25765[ST] is part of the refrigerator
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator
models like the LFC25765[ST] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two models with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.
Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.
About This Brand
LG, a leader in the bottom-freezer, will be introducing a four-door French-door and more LED lights throughout its refrigerators as well as taller integrated dispensers and a new 33-inch model with ice and water dispenser.
Claimed capacity (cu. ft.) Claimed capacity is the manufacturer's estimate of the volume, in cubic feet, of interior space.
Claimed capacity (cu. ft.)
Cabinet-depth model Cabinet-depth models usually measure 27 to 28 inches deep, not quite flush with the cabinets, but at least three inches shallower than many standard 36-inch-wide models. You can get models with stainless exteriors or panel kits.
French-door style French door models are bottom-freezer refrigerators whose upper compartments have two narrow doors that open similarly to the doors of a side-by-side refrigerator. These narrower doors use less space in front of the refrigerator when opened, and allow access to either or both sides of the full-width fresh-food compartment. Typically more expensive, French-door models are usually 36 inches wide, though some newer models are 33 inches wide.
Water dispenser It is normally located in the fresh food compartment.
Stainless/SS-look option Stainless steel is stylish but it shows fingerprints. Another option: a vinyl-covered metal finish that gives you a stainless-steel look but resists smudging.
We replaced an old, but still serviceable, Ammana with this LG, and immediately noticed two differences: amazing quietness, and lots more interior space in a fridge with the same foot print as the old one. The freezer provides adequate space for our use.<br />The only minor flaw is that you can only get one one-gallon container on a door shelf.
How long have you owned it:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I WOULD NOT BUY AN LG PRODUCT AGAIN
The fridge gaskets have plastic clips that keep the doors closed. 2 weeks after my 5 year warrantee expired the plastic clips broke and you have to replace the entire door gasket.You cannot purchase one gasket, you have to purchase 2 gaskets with labor cost over $400. Three months after they were replaced, they broke again. I had to fight with LG for 3 months regarding this defective part. They finally agreed to replace the parts but it will still cost me $150 to for labor to replace them.
