About - LG LFX25974[ST]

The LG LFX25974[ST] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the LFX25974[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:
I have owned this product for 1.5 years. I was extremely pleased until the ice maker went out. After further inspection, a wire was cut in half and had what appeared to be burn marks. I called customer support, and after 3 phone calls was transferred to corporate. The gentleman I spoke with said LG only stood by their product for the duration of the warranty which was 1 year and that I should have purchased the extended warranty. I'm on the hook for the icemaker.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
They had other models that had larger ice makers, but that was not a leading factor in our choice to go with LG. This particular model was the largest we could buy and fit in the space we had in our kitchen. Even though the ice maker is a little small, it is efficient and we never run out of ice in our house (yours, of course, may be different). Our kids love the small ice cubes that it produces. I like the layout. It has a great deal of interior space relative to its external dimensions, and it has been working perfectly for us.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
this refrigerator worked fine for almost 13 months.At about 14 months the flapper door that releases the ice cubes would not open and caused the ice to clog and not drop out.<br />We use the ice maker regulary and there should be no reason that this should occur under normal use.<br />I emailed LG and they said beacuse it was out of warranty( by 2 months) i would have to pay for a service man to come and take a look.<br />I have read online that there are many people having problems with this model and the icemaker.<br />Sad that you pay thousands of dollars and the appliance gives you problems after such a short time
