One thing I regret not considering before buying a fridge is noise while running. While LGs old compressors didn’t make so much noise, their new inverter linear compressors make a loud humming sound while running. Better to learn from my mistake and go for some other brand.

Please do not buy LG linear compressor refrigerators. The one my brother bought broke down 2 times already. They keep repairing but refusing replacement. Do a google search. In LG this is a common problem, but the company is cheating customers in India.

Refrigerator is a long term investment, the Whirlpool in my home is working since 20 years. 2+ years in your case is just the beginning. As for the failing LG linear compressors, there had been lawsuits already. In the western countries, consumers get compensated by such rogue companies. In India, the customer will be left with an expensive and oversized paperweight that will refuse to work because the compressor will give up despite multiple repairs. Expect not a single paisa from the company in such a scenario. https://www.classaction.org/lg-refrigerator-lin...

Thanks for the info. This lawsuit covers fridges manufactured before January 2014 so most likely I’m in the clear since mine’s a 2018 model. It’s been running well for 2 years so that’s good since most issues develop within the 1st year

You are the lucky one, and all the best to you since you are already post 2 years. As I had mentioned in another post in the same thread, my brother is now running from pillar to post trying to repair a LG. So the problems with linear compressor still exists. My intention is to warn those contemplating buying one. But of course, it is left to one’s own decision.

I dared and bought Hisense for 46k after a lot of research and by the time all the cashbacks and Diwali offers gone, all the side by side fridges are made in china from the brands like Panasonic, LG, Haier etc except Samsung made in India, I went with Hisense its a relatively huge brand like Samsung and LG also present in market from 50 yrs, so far so godd its been 3 months, bought 5 yrs waranty from ResQ for additional peace of mind, hoping for a long life of 10yrs lets see, previously we had Godrej which lasted 20 years, compressor got damaged two times once at 15 yrs and again at 20 yrs!
