My LG French Door LFC25760SB Refrigerator Doesn't Work
by Horned Frog
My LG fridge started getting frost build up and I thought it was from my kids not closing it properly. Then I the freezer started not keeping things frozen.
I "reset" the freezer like they suggested. It helped a little, but after a couple of months it got worse.
I called one of the LG recommended service companies and they said it was a "sealed system leak" (this is a death sentence for a fridge).
Then he told me that while the sealed systems parts (compressor, condenser and evaporator)were still under warranty, the cost to repair my beautiful fridge would be $700!
I found that my LG refrigerator wasn't the only one with this problem, there were reports all over the net about the unreliability of LG fridges and the failure of LG (and just about any company) to stand behind their products.
What used to be a 20 year durable good, is no longer. Do yourself a favor and pass on by the LG fridges, by the way they also manufacture the Sears Kenmore Trio fridges, so avoid those too.
We have learned the hard way that a fridge is one item for which you should definitely purchase an extended warranty.
