What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The ice maker in this machine is aweful. It breaks at least once a month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from top shelf This refrigerator starts where all the other leave off. I can't really find one thing that I dislike about the refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best fridge This fridge is perfect for us. Right size, plenty of space, good lighting all over, smells good and maintain the perfect temperature. Also, very important, it is very quiet. Better than any fridge I had before. I would have like more compartments in the freezer section. I bought a few kitchen baskets to keep things classified and organized (like frozen veggies, meat, fish, bagels, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the pull-out bottom drawer freezer! This is the first refrigerator I purchased new in 25 years. I love the room and the way the glass shelves can be reconfigured and the roominess of the freezer. I wish the bottom pull-out bin was divided into two sections so that it could be opened without opening both outside doors, but this wasn't a deal breaker. The only thing I do not like is the in-door ice maker. The receptacle that holds the ice is small and it gets jammed frequently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! We've had this refrigerator for about a month now and absolutely love it! We read some of the other reviews about the ice maker being noisy and the refrigerator loud, but we don't think that at all. TONS of storage space inside the fridge and freezer. Love the filtered water (something I thought I could do without) and the ice maker. I don't know how I lived without this product in my kitchen! I'm 110% satisfied with our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love everything about it. The ajustable half shelves are awesome!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It Worked great until......... For five months, all was great. Then the cooling system stopped working. It took over a month to get the parts and repair the unit. Since then, it is back to working great. Not having a refrigerator in the kitchen was difficult, as we had to use a small back-up in the garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I love my refrigerator. I now have more than enough room for food storage.

How do you get the refrigerator to pull away from the wall to clean coils in back

Asked by: GrandmaPt
Depending on the setup, the refrigerator should be able to pull away from the wall. It is suggested to put down some protective covering under the feet of the refrigerator to prevent the unit from damaging the floor. Remember to always unplug the unit before cleaning.

I purchased your LFX28968ST. I noticed that you have the same fridge with a secondary Ice Maker. That model I did not buy. I wish that I did. Is there any way that I can purchase the second ice maker for this model?

Asked by: Tazz3069
Unfortunately there would not be any way to add an additional ice maker to the unit. However, you can purchase an extra ice tray. The part number for the tray is MJS62591801.

My brother has the stainless steel version of my black fridge, model # LFX28968SB. His lights *dim on* when the doors are opened. Mine is a blinding bright light! Is there any way to get my LED lights to dim on like his? Thanks for the help!

I apologize, but no; this refrigerator does not have any control options available to modify the interior lighting.

Where are the humidity controls for produce

Asked by: Edmax
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator and its features. The HUMIDITY CONTROL should be located on the front edge of the shelf immediately above the CRISPER drawers. An additional description of this can be found on page 32 of the owner’s manual.
