What People Are Saying

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 200 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Has a ton of storage. Easy to clean. Much easier for me to find my frozen items in the drawer than my old side by side. July 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by VERY NICE I am coming from a side by side that came with the house and I was never crazy about. I like the French doors makes it easy to see what is in the frig, I am glad that I bought the model with only 2 side by side drawers not the 3 drawers (I think 2 the drawer maybe last years model not sure) and didn't listen to the salesman and go with the 3 drawer. The only 2 things I don't like about this frig is the stainless steel is not very stainless it shows every finger print and I am the only one in the house I have cleaned this frig more in the last month than the prev frig in a year and I think this frig is very loud. Over all I am glad that I purchased it. July 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT fridge!! I helped my mom buy her NEW fridge at our local home depot. When the fridge was in our house, from day one we have truly enjoyed it's features, and it really DOES keep food fresher, longer. This is our first french door fridge, we look forward to many years of usage. The design of the ice and water dispenser, you can hold a large size cup to it, which does fit. I am sure there are other features I haven't yet discovered?, but as I learn more, I'm sure I will appreciate those features. July 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value- good quality We've had the unit for about a month now, and everything is working fine. My wife loves the bottom freezer, and the French doors, which makes more room for everyday items on the top shelves. One design flaw is that the refrigerator does not display actual temperature- only set temperature. How do you know if there is a problem ? This feature needs to be added - even my old 15 year refrigerator had it ! July 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Huge amount of room, stylish Great fridge, lots of shelfs, very deep, ice makes quickly; Stainless finish is easily smudged, but can be quickly cleaned with window cleaner and a lint free cloth July 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So much space! I love this refrigerator! We replaced a side by side and have so much more room now. Love the large bins and our fruit and vegetables last so much longer. It is so quiet and the only noise is the ice cubes dropping in the bin on occasion. Love the freezer drawer and we can store so much more with easy access. We had replaced both our microwave and stove with LG products and because we were so pleased with them, we decided to go with LG for our refrigerator. It looks beautiful in our kitchen with the stainless steel finish. July 6, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Problems after 16 months I bought LG thinking it had a good reputation and was reliable. It has been a good refrigerator, except that after 16 months, I have an error code (1f) something to do with the ice maker. Now, I'm regretting buy a refrigerator with all these features. Old refrigerators without electronic features just seem to run forever. Aggravated that I spent so much on this and now have to spend more to fix it. Life is NOT good and shouldn't have problems this soon. June 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Refrigerators lasted a long time so it was many years ago since we bought our last fridge. We were amazed at the progress in the technology and design of this new fridge which we bought as replacement of the old one. This is an excellent fridge and we are very happy that we bought this one. July 21, 2014

Answer: 
The fridge should have come with a registration card in the packet. If it did not you can always go to http://www.lgusa.com/register and it will require that you know the Model No. of the unit as well as the Serial number. Both should be located on a sticker on the side of the unit.

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.

Answer: 
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.

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.
