The few days of research I've done on fridges mentions to avoid LG. They have a class action lawsuit going on right now IIRC.

thanks for sharing. What brands would you say are recommended for fridges? Definitely not Samsung.

Personally I like LG appliances. BUT... they have a high failure rate for their compressors on their fridges. Mine failed last year after about 8 years. Had to get it repaired. I'm told that LG compressors are notorious for having short life spans.

I'm kinda pissed my house has a 33.5" cutout for the fridge.
The 36" fridges always have more features and are often cheaper.
Stop posting 36 inch fridge deals dammit!

Depends how your kitchen is designed but I agree sometimes (especially in older homes) it looks pretty awful especially if you can see the non stainless sides of the fridge.
You do loose a lot of space though and with a large familly sometimes it just won't cut it.

Most modern kitchens are designed so that a standard depth fridge will fit completely enclosed with just the doors sticking out.

I got this from r/Appliances:

Do NOT buy an LG or Samsung refrigerator. Look for WP/KitchinAid, Whirlpool manufactured Kenmores (model numbers starting 110 and 106), or Frigidaires.
Be careful when looking at Kenmore because some of them are dogshit and some of them are actually decent whirlpools with the Kenmore brand slapped on them.

I went LG with all my recent appliances. They’re not running yet as the kitchen reno is not yet complete. Looking at consumer reports, LG is rated highly. At least the Fridge and dishwasher I bought were.

The only LG appliance I've had is an LG front load washer. Lasted me 17+yrs and just failed on me with repairs beyond economical repair. Got my money's worth.
Decided to get another LG (still waiting for delivery), but this time, I took one of the https://www.costco.ca/lg-5.8-cu.-ft.-wh ... 82610.html instead. All the front loaders had such crappy reviews.

Oh, and I have a Pre-LG era, Goldstar large Microwave, which still works like a charm [knock on wood].

Only good thing about LG at least, is their flat rate out of warranty repairs: https://lgoutofwarranty.ca/en/main/home.do

However, having said that... I also have to say that I know at lest 2 people that needed to wait nearly 2 months to get their appliance repaired, due to lack of stock for parts on LG's behalf.

For Fridges, I'll stick to Frigidaire ( I know, every brand has their issues). They've been making refrigeration for ages. Hey, even my 1972 Buick has a Frigidaire A/C unit :)

Try living with a 35" gap. Three-quarters of an inch too small for most 36" fridges.

LG still has 6 of the best-rated fridges on Consumer Reports. Unfortunately most new appliances are no longer built to really last, so you're gonna see short lifespans for critical components on most of them.

And a 33 will always look too small. That's brutal.

Depends on your needs, lose too much storage space in the fridge if it is counter depth.

You can always recess the fridge into the wall (make sure it isn't load bearing). Then the standard depths look like counter depth since you gain ~4" of space. Did it on mine and it looks great.

I don't know.

I have a Samsung that I'm in love with. Bought it December 2010. RFG293HARS for 1500$

Haven't had a problem until now, it has a gas leak :(
Looking for a new one and I'm so disappointed by the others!

My Samsung fridge has twin cooling, my vegetables really stay fresher longer.

American fridge feels so cheaply made! Drawer doesn't slide well they slide plastic on plastic!!! My cool pantry drawer has bearing slides!

I want the same interior quality that I have right now. Don't want bell and whistles ( wifi, screen, water dispenser) they are just more worries and risk to broke.
I lost the ability to remember things when I lost the right to a full night's sleep.

From my research, the lawsuit was in regards to the compressors in their fridges which failed within 1-3 years for many of their fridges built up until 2018. LG has stated that they have fixed the issue now, and also now offer 5-10 year warranties on their parts including the compressor.

I did my own research with everything in mind and still decided on purchasing one for an upcoming home.
