What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional Excellent capacity. I've never had a bottom freezer but love it. At first the bell alarm drove me nuts but now I appreciate knowing when I have accidentally left the door open and didn't end up turning that feature off. I like the small size ice cubes and the water dispenser location is great for large pitchers. Only drawback (and it would be with any stainless fridge) is the finger prints showing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very noisy refrigerator! We've had this frig for about two years and it is just so loud and noisy even when the motor isn't cycling. We have tried moving it back and forth, thinking it wasn't level. Nothing helps. About ready to trash it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Refrigerator Ever I've had nothing but trouble with this refrigerator since delivery. They've brought 3 refrigerators out initially because none were level. The last one brought was the closes but still not level. It leaks water when you open the doors and being stainless steel it's constant cleaning when the water runs down the front. Today a woke up to find my kitchen floor freezing to find the freezer is not sealing and has developed ice in the bottom and will not close. I currently have blocked closed with my kitchen chair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bulky feature difficult to move Bought this last November was delivered January, 2015. The refrigerator is too hard to move. As a disabled Veteran I cannot move this appliance at all and will never be able to clean behind it or service it. When the wheels are only touching the ground I cannot move it at all. Something this large should only need a gentle pull to move it but not this fridge and because of it I will never buy another LG product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features and Great Looks Too We purchased this refrigerator on 9/6/15 and have been very pleased with the product. After reading a few reviews with what we felt were "nit pick" comments, we were surprised to find that they unit did not have any of the negative comments written except that one door was a little bit lower than the other. LG gives you a little wrench to use to level the doors so no big deal. Refrigerator closes properly and the noise when it runs takes a little getting used to as it will kick on as soon as you close a door but not excessively noisy. We would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a really nice refrigerator for their kitchen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NICE BUT DOORS DON'T CLOSE ALL THE WAY I brought this a month ago, it's very nice, lots of room. The doors don't close all the way and that's a problem. However the bells start sounding off.

The ice maker keeps freezing up and we have had to repeatedly take out large chunks of ice out of container.  Could this be a temperature issue?  If so, what is the correct temp or other solution that will solve this problem.   Thank you.  

Asked by: Stella Louise
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator. Such freezing matters are typically caused by humid air reaching the ice maker, or the ice melting and then re-freezing. It is recommended to check each of these possibilities. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at

How many cups ice per day made?

Asked by: cups ice made per day
The Ice Maker in the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG Ultra-Large Capacity 3 Door French Door Refrigerator with Smart Cooling, Model # LFX28968ST will produce 70 ~ 210 cubes in a 24 hour period depending on freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, the number of door openings and other operating conditions such as the water supply line pressure. Ice making will stop when the in-door ice bin is full which holds approximately 6 to 8 ( 12~16 oz or 340 to 455 cc) glasses of ice...^IFV

There is a layer is ice at the bottom of my refrigerator. Sometimes it melts and leaks water from the bottom. I removed the ice but it forms again. Why is this happening?

Asked by: Abrar
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator. There are several reasons why this ice might develop. It could be caused by air/moisture leak, or there could be an actual water leak building in this area. The unit will need to be inspected by a qualified technician in order to make a proper determination. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at

No installation instructions for the Base Grille. My question is: there's a strip of black rubber along the bottom, does that bend inward, under the fridge, or outward toward the room? I could not find in the manual directions on installing properly.

Asked by: AKMapGirl
The Toe grille for the LG Ultra-Large Capacity 3 Door French Door Refrigerator with Smart Cooling, Model # LFX28968B goes over that rubber strip so that it will be under the refrigerator when the toe grille is attached properly. It should be inside the toe grille...^IFV

Are all three doors self-closing?

We were at Lowe's and the right sided door did not close automatically; the left door closed rather forcefully. The LG specs state that the hinges are self-closing hinges. Therefore, are both refrigerator doors self-closing? Also, is the freezer door self-closing?
Asked by: LGEnthusiast
I had the same problem and the installer and the call back technician both missed it. Only the LG-dispatched repair person found it. There is a white plastic shipping part on the bottom of the hinge that needs to be removed. It can only be seen looking up from the floor. Removal took 10 seconds.

Can doors and freezer drawer be easily removed for entry through 31" house door?

Asked by: flyman
The way our french door unit made it through was to open the upper doors and remove the bottom drawer. The 2 delivery guys used moving straps and just walked it right in.

Scratches on Stainless Steel

I remove scratches from Stainless Steel and got a call from someone with model# lfx28968st. Does this have any type of coating on the stainless? Thank you
Asked by: NYScratchRepair
You should contact LG first to find out what type or grade of stainless steel your refrigerator is. There are DIY scratch repair kit available such as Scratch-B-Gone. It really depends though how deep they are and what your expectations are. Good luck.
