About - LG LFX31925[ST]

The LG LFX31925[ST] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the LFX31925[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:
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.

Comment:
The ice maker functioned poorly for two years then the fridge stopped working. Compressor and motherboard both had to be replaced. Very expensive to repair and the warranty only lasted a year. Threw away about $200 in food and put the rest in the old 12 year old fridge in the garage that still works great. This is the most expensive and least reliable appliance we have ever purchased. We are a military family and we really splurged on this fridge and all the matching higher end set of a gas stove, microwave and dishwasher. Dropped nearly $5,000. The repair person could access the motherboard on line to see how often we opened it. It said the fridge was 34 but my external 5 buck thermometer indicated 57 degrees. The sour milk my son drank agrees. Waste of money and poor performing.

Comment:
Using the ice dispenser in the door causes the unit to stall, so the entire refrigerator literally has to be scooted out from the wall and unplugged for a minute to be reset. This happens at least 4 times a week. The icemaker was replaced once under warranty and it didn't solve the problem. It has a very large presence as well as it is so big and deep (food can get lost in the back shelves.) I wouldn't buy it again at all.

Comment:
We purchased this refrigerator in 2012 during a black Friday sale (I guess you get what you pay for). Much like many of the other reviews, one of the fans freezes up causing the fridge to be so loud you can hear it on the other side of the house. The ice maker also randomly stops working and the ice melts out the bottom of the door. It will behave for a few months and then start to act up. <br />Given all the other poor reviews (and lack of successfully finding a fix), we are not going to waste our time trying to get it repaired. Hopefully it will limp along until we get a new quality refrigerator.
