What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the French door design! I am so happy I bought the LG French door refrigerator! After having a side by side for so many years this is heaven. It is so easy to arrange the contents, plenty of room for serving dishes. The fruit and veggie drawers really keep things well, no lost produce. Love the Ice maker in the door, no lost space and ice storage in the freezer too for large gatherings. It has plenty of freezer room too. The total design is just perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really like our 3 door LG refrigerator At first I was little disappointed with the fridge due to water leaking/freezing, but after we had an LG representative come out and repair the problem from the delivery it has been great ever since. Proper installation in important. The only disappointment is the ice maker's capacity.

Our ice maker isn't making ice like it use to. It takes hours to get a small glassfull. We changed the proper filter correctly. What could be wrong?

Asked by: Bertdy
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator. It is recommended to check that the water supply is running properly, between 40 and 120 psi on models with a water filter. This information is listed on page 11 of the owner’s manual. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional assistance.

My refrigerator has NEVER made more than 2 glasses of ice even though there is plenty of ice in the dispenser. I have to take the container of ice out and bang it on the counter or get an ice pick to force the ice down in order for it to make 2 glasses?

Asked by: spyder1953
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator and its ice dispenser. It is recommended to check the ice dispenser chute, between uses, to ensure the flap is closing properly, as if it does not, then some of the ice could be melting, then solidifying all the ice into one block. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional assistance in this matter.

Just bought this model and put the new water filter that came with the frig,I get water out of the outside but it's not making any ice. Is there a way to fix or reset ?

Asked by: Malcolmg
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this refrigerator. If the filter is allowing water to the dispenser, then it is installed properly. It is recommended to check the freezer temperature to make sure the cubes can freeze, and that water is actually making it to the ice maker. 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 http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

What can i do to fix the ice fan?

Asked by: Houston713
It is not clear from your inquiry on if you are looking to "fix the ice fan" yourself of it you are inquiring about how you can go about getting it repaired. If you are looking to repair or replace the fan in the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG Ultra-Large Capacity 3 Door French Door Refrigerator with Smart Cooling, Model # LFX28968ST yourself, you will need a service manual. That may only be available to LG Authorized Service Technicians or LG Authorized Service Centers. You can contact our Customer Interactive Support Center at (800) 243-0000 to inquire about that, they will also be able to assist you with scheduling a repair service if needed or you can visit our site: http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair-service/find-repair-provider to locate a local repair service provider in your area code...^IFV
