About - LG LFX25991[ST]

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.

Temperature performance:
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.

Energy efficiency:
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.

Nice not perfect Fridge
Attractive Design
Customizable Shelving
Easy Access
Holds Temperature Well
Space For Tall Items
Dispensed water not cold
Not Energy Efficient
Best Uses
Well laid out with multiple options for tall &large items. Dispensed water is cool not ice cold but not a problem for us since we fill glass with ice first. Did have a problem with sweating between fridge doors. Fixed it by turning off Energy Saving mode recommended by another reviewer so I also had to ding Energy Efficiency.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Defrosted freezer 1 month old
Best Uses
Small Kitchens
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:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
