Rated 5 out of 5 by This refridgerator is well designed The refrigerator is great. Has plenty of room for frozen and cold items and makes ice quickly and has extra storage for more. It's quiet and seems very efficient. August 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent in all ways I am VERY pleased with the space, compact ice maker, LED lighting and quietness. The controls and settings are intuitive and easy to use. August 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by l G has not let me down We chose this bright beautiful fridge after reading all reviews available and our satisfaction with our L G washing machine. called in one time to service department for a minor issue they were great. Guess what they can test the fridge by you placing your phone right up to fridge and pressing a button while they listen. We would have loved a tilt out freezer door and yes stainless steel is high maintenance .Please keep up good work we need companies with your integrity L G will be our next TV purchase August 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by the refrigerator is exactly as said the refrigerator is beautiful. i really love the features of it. I like how the ice maker is in the door. have alot of space inside. I am glad i bought this product. I would recommend to a friend. August 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by best fridge ever I've only had this fridge for about a month but it's the best I've ever owned.so much space inside for a family of four.Love the bottom freezer easily accessible.The outside in stainless is gorgeous but does leave a lot of fingerprints...Love LG wouldn't buy anything else. August 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent quality, great features and performance. I've only had this refrigerator for a couple of months but so far, I love it! It has a large interior that stores everything conveniently. I like the freezer on the bottom which also stores everything and works smoothly. The only thing I don't like is the amount of cleaning/polishing to maintain the stainless finish appearance. If you don't want to spend an inordinate amount of time cleaning it, think about purchasing your appliance in a different finish. August 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it Easy to clean, in and out. Easy to adjust shelves. Spacious and quiet. Wish the water was colder. August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is the ultimate in "all' you need We have had LG Kitchen Appliances for several years now and love them! This Refrigerator truly is a customers dream. It has everything you need and it's style reminds me of "sleek and silk". It has enough room to fit everything in and all sizes and the "easy pull" drawer is another great feature. My husband and I recommend this LG Product to all. Go buy it - you will be glad you did. August 1, 2015

Answer: 
If the refrigerator is stainless steel than the answer is no magnets won't work. If you have an ice maker installed on the left door, the metal it has on it will allow some strong magnets to be applied.

Yes, but magnets may scratch the surface. I'd be careful with using heavy magnets on the front. The sides are also magnetic and will not scratch easily.

Fan Noise

High I just bought this fridge I love it, but there is noise that is on constantly I dunno if it is the compressor or just a fan , which actually stops when you open the door, I understand that's a good feature for energy saving to stop it when the door is open, but my question is , does this fan/compressor run 24/7? because I'm sure the fridge is pretty cold right now, it's way past 24 hrs, I live alone so no kids and door is closed most of the time, thanks.

Answer: 
I have had this refrigerator for 1 month and the constant humming is making me crazy. My kitchen is open to the living room and I have to keep the TV volume louder just to cover the hum from that darn thing. I am still within the return policy period at Home Depot and am researching what model to exchange it for. Certainly with regret because I do love everything else about this refrigerator. And sadly all the other French door style refrigerators sold by Home Depot seem to have some negative reviews about the noise, so I don't know yet what to do. I may be forced to give up the French door style to find a guaranteed quieter model. I am frustrated to find myself in this situation after making what I thought was a well researched decision, believing what I read prior to my purchase about how quiet the LG brand was.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator. The compressor does NOT stay on constantly. It is normal for a fan to be circulating the cold air, and then to stop operating when the door is open. If the unit is having trouble with its operations, then please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 that we might assist with resolving the matter.

Normal Operation of Fridge

I just purchased a LG french door fridge model LFX28968ST. This my first french door fridge and I had a question regarding the normal operation. It has almost been 24 hours since the fridge was installed. Does everyone else experience a fan than turns off when the fridge doors are open and turns back on when the doors are closed. Is this normal? Does this stop after some time or is this normally how the fridge runs?

Answer: 
I have had this fridge since February and I have the same thing happening. The fans shuts off when you open the fridge. I think it is an energy saver type feature so you aren't running the fridge if the doors are open.
