26.3 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator in Slate is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 318.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice refrigerator. easy to clean, BIG Looks great with all the other appliances. Lots of differant funtions. Lots of space inside. Love the two ice makers. It might be a little big for the size of my kitchen.
Date published: 2012-12-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking machine....average function I feel as if I could use more interior space options-I do like the fold down middle shelf for tall items without having to adjust the shelves themselves. The door shelves could be improved as they slant down slightly and if not full items fall over. The door shelves also are not deep enough for a large gallon orange juice jug the fit sideways, making the use of space inefficient. The freezer is great with space, although one recent feature I noticed when cleaning out the ice cube tray is that the ice maker does not turn off when the tray is removed! I had ice all in the freezer when done defrosting and cleaning the tray!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fridge I love the lighting and the size of the bottom freezer and its possibilities. However, the refrigerator has proved to be too big for me. It can keep a lot of food, but because the front of the freezer drawer and its handle stick so far out, it is almost impossible for me to reach the back of the upper shelves of the fridge. It works fine for my slim 6 foot 2 inch husband. With the doors being so thick to house large containers, one has to open both doors most of the time to fetch something out of the fridge which does not result in energy savings. It does refrigerate the food perfectly which is the aim anyway!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look! I knew nothing of this slate finish until I was in the store and saw it and immediately fell in love. I didn't really want stainless steel because of how hard they are to keep clean but the other options were very limited. Then I saw the slate finish and it was exactly what I was looking for without even knowing it. The gray matte finish is beautiful and does not show fingerprints. When I see other stainless appliances they pale in comparison to this. The inside is great too, very roomy with lots of changeable options for shelves, drawers, temperatures. Extra drawers in the freezer are nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the color We were looking for something other than stainless. The slate color goes well in our newly renovated kitchen. Not only that, I love the freezer on the bottom. I can now look into the refrig without bending over to see what is in it. I also love the size of the freezer area. Only 2 things I would prefer different. One is the large drawer in the refrig. You have to open both doors in order to get into it. The other is the ice maker. We didn't get the one on the door and it just seems to be awkward to get to where it is located. These are minor things to me and on the whole I love the refrig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCEPTIONAL COLOR The appliances that came with my house were 12 years old so I was preparing to replace them. I started looking last year and from the moment I saw the new slate color I knew that was the color that I wanted. I did a lot of research but kept coming back to stainless steel as I knew that would be the color of choice for most. In the end I went with my gut reaction and chose the slate. So happy that I did. Color is phenomenal with my floor, granite, and other counters. Plenty of room, looks much more high end than the cost would indicate. Solidly built and a pleasure to touch. I am a happy camper!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable! A nice looking refrigerator that has proven to be unreliable. There have been problems with the ice maker, the freezer door switch shorting out and the compressor relay failing. Unfortunately the last failed 6 weeks after the 4 year extended warranty expired and LG does not carry or make the part anymore. So 5 years and 6 weeks later this refrigerator is unrepairable. This is not an American appliance that you plug in and 15 years later you go out and get a new one. These things are unreliable, difficult to find anyone who will work on them and no inventory of spare parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loud, foam coming out of the seams First impression was this fridge is cheap - foam coming out of the seams, misaligned doors, trim pieces with gaps. It is LOUD. It is musical - I do not mean the beeps and indicators, I mean the compressors. When running, distinct tones can be heard rapidly switching back and forth, like an up tempo high pitched Jaws theme. It's crazy. After two months, this refrigerator continues to get louder and new noises are a weekly occurrence. Now it whistles every time a door is shut - any door - left door, right door, freezer door. The whistles are getting longer. The slate looks nice, and it appears to cool decently, but the quality and noises have us highly skeptical that it will be reliable in the long term.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Spacious We purchased this model November 2014. During the Christmas Holidays of that year the fridge began making a loud sound when ever the compressor came on. The "Quick Use and Care" section on Normal operating sounds says "The new high efficiency compressor may run faster and longer than your old refrigerator and you may hear a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound while it is operating." So we assume the loud compressor sound we are hearing is to be expected. This loud sound permeates our entire home. We did not expect this appliance to be so noisy as our old fridge only had low hum. As for performance, we can't complain. It maintains a proper cooling temperature and both the capacity of the fridge section and freezer section is plenty adequate for our needs. We just wish it were quieter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A LOT of SPACE!!! This is the best idea in refrigerators/freezer units. We spend more time getting into the refrigerator then the freezer so to have the much larger flexible space right in front of us makes the most sense. The freezer is below but all the compartments and drawers and door basket are so smartly laid out that nothing gets lost in either section. I have trouble keeping enough food in the refrigerator because there is so much more room then any side by side unit we've ever owned before. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am so HAPPY with this refrigerator!!!! We bought this to replace our double door model, a model typo we have used for the past 35 years. This type is so much easier to organize and then find groceries. Plus the fact that you need only to open one of the doors keeping it colder. I wasn't sure if I would like the pull out dearer style for the freezer and I actually like it better! It is also easier to find items mainly because you tend to put less in it and rotate what you have faster so you are getting fresher products to use. The old way you tend just to hoard because there seems to be more room, there is more than enough in this model for lots of food and a better way to organize what you have. I have never been happier with an appliance than this !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roomy, great interior lighting Had to buy a new refrig when the compressor on other one went out after only 5 1/2 yr. This one has a ten year warranty on the compressor. Love the roomy bottom freezer and bright LED lighting inside refrig/freezer compartments. Especially nice is the alarm to let you know when the door(s) had stayed open too long. And the alarm is not obnoxious. Like the fact that the temperature for upper and lower compartments is readily available, so you know if the unit is cold enough. Refrig interior is roomy, spacious and easy to clean. Best of all, it came in my favorite large appliance color: white. One can never go wrong w/white! Also, the ice maker is prodigious in making ice. Comes w/a filter. And is made in the good old USA!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Secret Space! I've only had this appliance a few days but am impressed with the interior design and ease of access. Most surprising, was to find the freezer's hidden space! Until I leaned right over the freezer drawer when restocking the fridge I'd no idea about the compartment at the back of the freezer drawer that just folds out. It is roomy enough to put small bottles, emergency ice packs, and frozen juice cans and makes reaching these small items much easier. Great Idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So lovely! Gorgeous exterior! We love the color and it's definitely smudge proof. It cooled down in the matter of hours and is good quality. I love the adjustable shelves (so easy to do) and the interior ice machine. The plastic is a little hard to get off but it really doesn't bother us - you can hardly see it. And it does make a noise once in awhile that's a bit loud but it's total of 5 seconds and it's not at all a problem for us. Some of these reviews are just crazy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great new color I love the French doors on this fridge. I am amazed at all I can fit into the space, compared to my 17 year old side by side. I love experimenting with the shelves and placement of items. I retained my wine holder from my previous GE fridge and found I can use it in the new one. Organizing the freezer compartment is more challenging and wish I had a second drawer. The only (very tiny) negative is that it sticks out 10 inches from my counter, but I knew that prior to purchasing. The new slate color is perfect. Also, smudge proof is a plus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fridge We bought this refrigerator for its striking color (slate gray) and its layout (side by side doors and bottom freezer). It doesn't offer bells and whistles (except for the alarm that sounds when a door is left open too long: this option can be turned off): No water/ice dispenser, e.g. (though there is an ice-maker, of course), but it allows digital temp setting separately for the fridge and freezer. We love the interior lighting: It's easy to find anything anywhere in the fridge, hardly any shadows. One caveat: This is a large refrigerator. We have a standard large front door, and I had to remove the door from its hinges AND remove the handles from the fridge and freezer doors in order to get this unit into our house. I advise: Check the specs carefully and measure before purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fridge I love the color. It looks great with my light cabinets and dark floors! I'm glad there is an option out there other then stainless steal, white and black. It cleans up well. There is a lot of room! I love the door alarm option as well. Only have had it hooked up for a couple months but so far it's been great. One thing I can't figure out is how to get the plastic sticky wrap off the door hinge area. It's stuck there still and it seems like id have to take the whole door apart to get it off. Any suggestions would be great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing 2 Rave About First the fridge arrived wrapped in tons a glue and clear wrap that took 2 months to remove and still some stuck in the creases. ...the shelves on the doors aren't adjustable enough for our use, needs more options for height....engine seems to run continuely . ...shelves inside have one that is adjustable. ...since i use a large pots at times, there is no place i can put inside this fridge....shelving feels flimsy and I hope this frig last longer than 7 years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my frig! We purchased our refrigerator in June. We love everything about it. The freezer on the bottom is wonderful and is very spacious and everything stays organized. The lighting in the refrigerator section is terrific. The storage areas on the double doors hold so much stuff! The main area is very spacious and is very easy to clean. I find myself staying very organized and neat. Also the bins hold so much. This refrigerator is wonderful!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lost that lovin feeling I love the look and functionality of this refrigerator. It's a great size, it's lovely to look at, has ample space and I had hoped to have this for a long time. However, we have now had to have TWO repairs in less than a year, each time, some issue with the fan. Starts to make a progressively loud, irregular "whirring" noise, aka DEATH RATTLE - then just stops cooling. First time the whole fridge/freezer went out - no cooling, no lights, nothing. This time, the fridge stopped cooling, but freezer went to -16 degrees. Then, 4 days later, it started making noises again and began to cool. Still had service, where fan was once again replaced. This is totally unacceptable for a refrigerator that is not even a year old. They discontinued this model stating it was not for any "issues", but I think they know they have a lemon. If I only needed a fridge to look pretty and warm my food, i'd recommend this model to everyone. Silly me wanting it to actually work. Maybe you'll be lucky and not have this issue, but it seems from reviews that this is a pretty common problem with this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and user friendly! This fridge is gorgeous- I love the finish much more than stainless. It's elegant and easier to keep clean, and the handles are brushed stainless. The shelves are adjustable and there is plenty of room for large things like a turkey and bottles of wine. I love that it chimes when the door is open too long- we've lost entire refrigerators full of groceries from the door accidentally being left open on other new models.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great color I posted a review after I first purchased but now, after using it for 4 months, I would like to share a few more things. The fridge part is wonderful, so much room and easy to organize but there is a trade off in the freezer. I like organization and it is hard to organize since there is only one drawer. It is like one big box. I ended up purchasing plastic bins to maintain some organization. Also, the I noticed my coffee creamer would prematurely curdle if kept on the door but is just fine when kept in the main part of my fridge. I love the alarm that tells you the door is open. My previous GE Profile side by side doors would automatically swing shut; this model will not and the user has to actually close the doors. Four months out, I am still not used to this. Also, daily I have to clean the handles. I would suggest using a darker or textured handle on future remodels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this frig! Was in the market for a new frig after mine died. I wasn't even sure this would fit in the space I had (knew it would be tight) but was assured there would not be a space issue. I'll have to say...I have steered away (for whatever reason) from bottom freezers....but I'm not sure why! The space this has is AMAZING. Pizzas lay flat with plenty of room! Ice is in it's own pull out compartment! Lighting is amazing in the frig and runs very quiet!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE.
