Questions & Answers


what shape of ice cubes does this make? in the store the display model says round or "craft" ice.

Asked by Robbie February 23, 2021

Please see the attached drawing. It’s very much like some chocolate candy shape.

We've recently purchased this and have a question: the ice maker makes cubes that are large. Is i...

Asked by DougP February 21, 2021

Hello, we only recommend to use the ice maker included or compatible with this model.^Venette

what is the width of this model?

Asked by Alli February 9, 2021

The width is 35 ¾"

Will an existing overhead cabinet that is 12 inches deep from the back wall and clearing the back...

Asked by Plantlady February 7, 2021

When measuring, I noticed that my cabinet door measured 2" above top of fridge on side of cabinet door where it is hinged to cabinet. When I opened it it measured 1 5/8" from fridge top on part of cabinet door that would be near the fridge hinge. From the top of my fridge to the bottom of my cabinet there is a space of 7/8". So I have a little larger space between fridge top and bottom of cabinet than your 1/2" will be. When I open the cabinet door I have a 3/8" gap between the cabinet door and the fridge hinge. But also like I said my cabinet door angles down when opened. So there is a little less space towards that edge that goes out over the fridge hinge. The hinge measures 24" from the back of the fridge. Then there is a center hinge that goes back even a little farther. I didn't want to get a ladder out, so not sure what that measurement is. Also keep in mind that you have to leave a couple of inches open behind the refrigerator for air flow when you install it. Maybe you could take the cabinet doors off and go with an open concept. Maybe add some trim here and there to make it look like it is just not a cabinet with the doors taken off. I do really like this refrigerator and it keeps food so much colder than my old one did. Everything about the design of it is great.

How do i turn on or off the ice maker in the freezer?

Asked by Jasmine February 6, 2021

There is an on/off switch above the ice maker.

what type of ice does this make?  cubed like the pictures show or the crescent moon?  thanks 

Asked by Puma11 February 5, 2021

The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 22 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator, Model # LFDS22520S produces cubed ice as shown in the images for the refrigerator. The ice maker will produce approximately 70-210 cubes in a 24-hour period, depending on freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, number of door openings, and other operating conditions...^IFV

Love this refrigerator!
Fits perfectly in our kitchen space- love the water feature on the front of the door. Spacious inside- we are very happy with this purchase!
by Cynthia D
I really like it but....
Let me start off by saying there is nothing wrong with my fridge so far I just wish I had more room in it but for the size of the space I had (31 inches wide) this was the best option... I did have to take out a shelf just to fit my Brita water dispenser and juices in the actual fridge but overall its a good buy, I havent hooked up the ice maker yet because we don’t have a water source there so I can’t say as to how good that works but the freezer is nice too.
by QuarantineBride2020
Great fridge!
I'm very happy with this fridge, especially the water dispenser with water that tastes delicious. I have a very small kitchen and it fit perfectly in my space. Ice maker works perfectly and I love the door controls for temperature.
by Cherylms1
Excellent Fridge and Transaction!
Very happy with our purchase! It is a very pretty fridge. It was difficult to find something narrow, larger capacity, and attractive, and this fridge hits all those points. Delivery was on time and easy, great job HD!

Highly Recommend
Am very pleased with the purchase. Had Home Depot deliver, install and haul away old fridge. Also purchased the extra protection plan from Home Depot should it be needed and for peace of mind. Did not need the ice maker water line hose because making ice ourselves. I returned the water hose to Home Depot and was refunded for it. This model is very quiet, very contemporary and has plenty of room for items. A magnet will not stick to the front of the fridge so its very good quality stainless. Magnets stick fine to fridge sides and that space is utilized for items. Overall very pleased and had a pleasant install experience.

Overall I am pleased with this refrigerator. There are a few issues with it that prevented me from a 5 star rating. The Stainless Steel grabs the fingerprints off my hands. I didn't realize that I touch the door rather than just the handles. The shelves are adjustable but have limited positions. My previous refrigerator had cantilevered shelves that could be adjusted in inch increments. This one has few positions with larger spacing between them. The doors close solidly but take some effort to close. The left door does not stay open at the fully open position. I think there is a more expensive model at this size and I wish I had considered it.
