i bought this refridgerator 2 1/2 years ago, new, lg model LMX21981ST/02. this past weekend, the white, nylon hose that runs in the back of the unit, from the supply to ice maker burst, 2 am, sept 9th, 2012. flooded kitchen, water damage to cabinates, carpets, furniture, drywall, base boards, wood floors, etc.
i called lg, they said the water tube was crimped????? no way this could happen, straight line, from bottom to top. nothing touching the line. the plastic, or, nylon line split causing a leak. we have city water, washing machine, etc. no problem. lg told me a pressure surge with the water....what an idiot. time for a lawyer and justice against poor quality products, paying a high price, deceiving the public...and damaging your house. any similar complaints, please reply to: ed.turner.tpa@gmail
