These homes should last at least 10 yrs. with no issue, & yes I know you can get one lemon once in a while but I don’t think I’ve ever talked to someone that hasn’t had a big problem in a 5 yr. old home. Sorry to hit a sour note with TV but we paid a lot money to by a new home not a fixer upper! Good luck mulligan.
Unfortunately all appliances are lucky to last 7 years! I just junked an LG Counter Depth French Door w/Bottom Freezer, it was only 4 yrs old. At 2 years, the compressor died & at 4 years it was the sealed system leaking all the Freon out. So very disgusted that I had a magnetic sign made & display on the back of both of my trucks...
“Say No To LG Fridge
Compressor out/ 2 years
Sealed System out/ 4 years”
LG makes Frigidaire
Sad, appliances are NOT cheap! #regulations

Well even my cheap Kenmore could have been a lemon like yours. Right now I have a cheap GE refrigerator that I got from my mother in law when she died 20 yrs. ago, it’s now 26 yrs. old . I basically just keep drinks in it & I haven’t put a cent in it. What I think is they don’t make’em like they use to. Appliances companies I think want them to only last 6 to 8 yrs. so they can stay In business. Go Figure!

The only thing I buy from LG is TV's & cell phones--was told by an appliance repair person to stay away from Samsung & LG

It, literally, only depends on the repairperson you speak to as which brand to buy. Just like with any other appliance, television, etc.

You are talking about a refrigerator built back in the middle ages when quality was common. We bought a Westinghouse fridge in '72 that was still going strong in 1997 in our garage when we finally gave it away because of a new build.


No refrigerator for us has ever worked as well. I could list the repair problems on our fridges since then, but it would take a spread sheet. LG French Door was probably the worst.
