What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handles Need Improved Finish I've had this fridge for one month. Basically, I really like it, but there are a few cosmetics that need to be improved upon. The handles are made of a glossy black finish and do not wipe off easily with a sponge, even when you apply pressure. Do NOT use abrasive cleaner or even a gentle scouring pad to remove any caked-on food, or it will dull the shiny handles. Not practical. I also have a tiny scratch on top of the freezer drawer just by opening and closing it, so be careful there as well. Apparently, the black finish scratches easily. My last fridge's doors (side by side) closed easily with a light push. These doors do not. Make sure you don't walk away before checking the fridge doors are completely shut. Otherwise, the looks and functionality of this refrigerator are excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! We bought this frig Labor Day weekend. I really like that the ice and water are separated. My husband was always forgetting to move the switch and would get water when he wanted ice with our old frig. I love the door buzzer when doors are left open for too long. The only two things that I would change would be 1) when getting ice or water being able to open the other door and look in the refrigerator. and 2) the top basket in the freezer be metal. We have NOT had any problem with the plastic basket in the freezer but would just prefer metal. These two things are the only reason I am not giving 5 stars. Overall, we all really like this product and am very satisfied!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous Fridge! Bought 2 months ago. Can store 3 large pizzas in their boxes on the second shelf!! Love the space. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is the small amount of ice it produces. We always run out.

my friend has one of these and he does not like it because it develops condisation on the top and face of the door where the ice maker is. He also said the door on the ice maker has been frozen shut at times. His is an older model , did this get fixed?

Asked by: himie
There are a few different factors that may cause moisture or condensation on the outside cabinet of the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 27 cu. ft. Ultra Capacity 3-Door French Door Refrigerator w/Smart Cooling®, Model # LFX28968SW. If the doors do not shut properly, cool air can escape and cool the cabinet area around the gap. The coolness of the cabinet will cause the humidity in the air to condense on the unit. You will want to visually inspect the door gaskets for any gaps in the gasket and check for dirty or damaged seals and that the doors are properly aligned. Moisture in the air can also condense on the door mullion if the energy saver mode is on. Energy Saver mode will deactivate the heater that prevents condensation from forming on the door mullion. The default on the refrigerator is with the energy saver on so the heater will be off. If condensation is forming on the door mullion, turn the energy saver mode off until it resolves the condition. It may be necessary to deactivate this feature during the summer months when conditions are more humid, or if you are in a coastal environment. In humid environments such as coastal areas during summer months, moisture in the air may condense on the cabinet which is usually cooler than the room environment, especially where the ice maker is. If this is the case, condensation should be minimal and can be dried off with a soft cloth. There could also be excess moisture on the refrigerator from cooking as well. If you have been cooking most the day for a few hours, wipe the excess moisture away...^IFV
