Bought the LG refrigerator that uses twice the energy stated.
Along with the LG "energy star" rated French Door refrigerator, I purchased the front load LG "energy star" rated washer and dryer, the LG "energy star" rated dishwasher and the LG microwave. My concern is, if they got away with lying about the energy consumption rating, what might they be covering up regarding overall quality of all the other appliances listed above. I also see that there may be a class action lawsuit against their front load washer and dryer. My check that was sent with the letter by LG amounted to $15. Seems there is some discrepancy in the monitary value of the checks from what I have read of other complaints.

Unplug the refrigerator from the power socket for 30 seconds. When you plug it back in the control panel should reset showing all 8s for several seconds and then return to normal settings. If that does not solve the problem then the controller board probably needs to be replaced. As part of the settlement with Energy Star, LG is supposed to be replacing controller boards for free so your problem could be solved by that if you qualify. See http://www.energy.gov/news/6743.htm. Use phone number to contact LG as the web site did not work three times when I tried to register through it.
My check for $ 16,- also said "Accepted as Full and Final Satisfaction of All Claims" despite LGs promise to make payments every year for the additional energy use. They never informed me that my fridge does not meet the "Energy Star" requirements. I won't cash this check and will wait for a class action law suit. I bought an appliance because I believed that I was doing something for the environment and then its like "sorry, you bought an environmentally unfriendly product and that you are destroying our environment but we will pay you $ 16,- to relieve your bad consciousness"
