Ultra-Capacity 3 Door French Door Refrigerator with Dual Ice Maker. If you have ever wished you had more space to get more organized, your wish has been granted. With 28 cubic feet, you get that extra space. You also get two ice makers, to keep plenty of ice on hand to serve the whole party. Plus, our Smart Cooling technology helps keep food fresher longer. And with French-doors it's real easy getting food in or out of this refrigerator.


Store more
Stock-up and store everything you need. With a cavernous 28 cubic feet of space, this LG French Door refrigerator gives you ample space for all of your family’s favorite foods and keeps them conveniently organized and within reach.

More shelf space
Ice makers are great, but not if it means you can't fit all of your food in the fridge. The Slim SpacePlus™ Ice System provides more shelf space and allows even more space for door bins.

Fresher is better
Smart Cooling system is designed to maintain superior conditions within the refrigerator. The Linear Compressor reacts quickly to temperature fluctuations and helps keep your food fresher, longer. Meanwhile, strategically-placed vents in every section surround your food with cool air no matter where you put it.

Peace of Mind
When you buy a refrigerator, you don't want to worry that it won't last. Because the Linear Compressor motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.

Plenty of Ice
With Slim SpacePlus ice maker in the door and another ice maker in the freezer, LG gives you enough ice to fill the cooler and serve the whole party.

From pitchers to pint glasses, finally an ice & water dispenser that can accommodate just about any container. The water and ice dispenser in this LG refrigerator is one of the tallest around, measuring in at an ultra-accommodating 12.6 inches
