What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Improvements Had this product for almost two weeks. But there are some improvements that LG can do: - Add an egg and butter tray. - Put more lights on the doors. - Have a thermostat setting next to the 'Glide & Serve Drawer'. - Add a 'bar' inside top across the bottom freezer door--can put canned juices, i.e., frozen lemonade and orange juice. - Ability to adjust shelves from the very FIRST slot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I've had refrigerator for 2 months, and absolutely have no complaints. This is my first new refrigerator in about 16 years. Love all the features, plenty of storage space in fridge and freezer. Was a little hesitant about french door model but very happy I decided to go with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG!! I love this appliance!! I bought this refrigerator last summer when my old one suddenly died. I didn't have a lot of time to research so went on the recommendation of the salesperson. I am very happy with this appliance. I love the size, French doors and especially the bottom freezer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value that operates well. We've owned this for about 2 1/2 years now with only one minor irritation. I love the great features and ease of cleaning however, the ice machine storage bin frequently freezes shut and does not allow the ice to be dispensed. The solution is to open it up and move the ice cubes around in the storage bin. Then it will dispense easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, Bright interior lighting, Plenty of space We've had our fridge for a couple months now and we've been happy so far. The fridge is quiet, makes ice very quickly and has plenty of space. The storage areas in the doors are narrow, however you can still fit plenty of condiments and juices in the right door and smaller items in the left side door that has the ice maker in it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BEATS OUR OLD SIDE BY SIDE Great lay out and lighting, makes it easy to store & find all the items quick and easy. Unlike our old side by side this French Door fits all types of food with no challenge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Space, Great Design BUT... I bought this a few weeks ago and like it a lot. The refrigerator is spacious and the freezer is large and deep. However one needs to get additional bins or trays to place in the refrigerator otherwise you'll be routing around for small things like jars of mustard or even a large container can get pushed to the back. Finding these bins are easy and they come in all shapes and sizes at BedBathBeyond BUT it is a shame, for this price, LG doesn't include a couple of them with the frig. The freezer is the same. Nice and deep and wide; cavernous but it is hard to place items unless you can stack them. Again, bins work here and again several should come with this appliance. LG could make a deal with the company that makes these to provided a couple and a coupon to order more. Also the stainless exterior is not smudge free. I am constantly wiping it down to remove smudges and fingerprints. A simple microfiber cloth won't work, I have to use cleaner and plan now to get a stainless steel cleaner (spray or disposable wipes) for it. LG should mention this is not smudge free and offer, again a deal with a company to provide a sample of a stainless cleaner with coupon to buy more. I have read the reviews of the iceman and can see if one uses a lot of ice, say in the summer, it may not be large enough capacity. It just means planning ahead for me, and making extra ice. I have an LG usher and dryer (Also stainless BTW but no issue with smudges, weird) and all of my TVs are LG. I am partial to their products. Other than this I really like it. It is roomy, extremely well light interiors (freezer too) and ADA compliant. Again the lighting is great; one can easily see what is where and there are no shadows or dark spots like other refrigerator lights.

What temperature should refrigerator be set on

Asked by: Ssheidt
It is recommended that, when the unit is first installed, the freezer temperature should be set to 0 degrees Fahrenheit, while the refrigerator should be set to 37 degrees. Once the unit reaches these temperatures, you may change the setting to however you would prefer.

My LG LFXS30766 refrigerator displays E next to refrigerator and 1F nest to Freezer on the water/ice panel? How do I correct this or do I need service. My Refrigerator is only about 8 months old.

Asked by: Brenda Rizzo
The ER IF code is indicative of a problem with the Icemaker Fan or its motor. This can potentially be resolved by allowing the refrigerator to thaw for about 4 hours, and then reconnecting it. If it does not, then the unit will likely 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 http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

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.

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.
