The LG LFX25991[ST] is part of the refrigerator
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator
models like the LFX25991[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.
One month almost to the day, woke up to defrosted freezer. Called LG who offered a repair person to visit 6 days later. When I said I couldn't wait that long, gave me the number to authorized service center. Repairman came out and diagnosed a bad computer board. When he ordered the part, found out it was back ordered until October 7 (3 weeks away). He was able to reboot the computer by unplugging for a few seconds and now working again but for how long? First sign of trouble was drip from ice dispenser which apparently is a sign of a rising temperature. Went back to store where I purchased and bought the 5 year extended warranty. After many long phone calls with LG, now working on getting a replacement. Not very happy but at least have extended warranty to fall back on. Did extensive research before purchase but obviously LG has problems with this model if part is out of stock.. Hope my RETURN AUTHORIZATION gets approved. This can take up to 2 business days.
How long have you owned it:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Love counter depth
Holds Temperature Well
We love the counter depth as things don't get lost in the back or bottom as with a standard depth model. Very quiet. The alarm is good reminder to close the door. Ice maker works great, plenty of ice a ice is always fresh. We like the crush feature as well. A large family or heavy ice users would want a larger capacity ice maker. Freezer has serval layered drawers which glide nicely to avoid the lost items.
