What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy We bought this refrigerator 4 months ago and it started making a very loud noise after 2 months. It looks like a good refrigerator but it is not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, silent and well made. I did my home work. Most your big box stores have in stock the most expensive and least expensive as display models. I didn't want cheap and the high end models had allot more gadgets, bells and whistles that I would never need nor did I want to pay for. So I went on line and found this middle-of-the-road model. Mind you, I had to order it, and it took about a 5 weeks to get here, but I was upgrading, so I still had my old one until it arrived. If you wait until your 15-17 year old dies, you are forced to buy a floor model and you'll pay, for something you may or may not be happy with. Having to wait so long, every time a sale hit, I got the discount and in the end I got a higher end model for a bare bones price. So far, so good. We love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE Ice Maker & Stainless is Hard to Clean! We have owned several really nice stainless steel refrigerator/freezer combos over the years and this one has the absolutely worst ice maker we've ever come across. This thing can't keep up with two adults that work full-time without running out of ice. We can usually each fill-up our 24oz Tervis cups once and then it's out of ice. We put the "extra ice" setting on and that seems to make very little difference. We have been extremely disappointed with this really expensive purchase!!! The other really negative thing is that even though it states that it's super easy to clean - it's anything but. We've tried the suggested cleaners and many others, but there are always finger prints, cleaner streaks, etc. Come On LG - You can do better and will have to for us to buy LG again. BTW - We bought all new matching appliance and the same issues are true with cleaning the microwave, stove/oven and dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great refrigerator. Quieter than my other brand. Replaced refrigerator and washer and dryer with LG products. Love them all. Much quieter and better quality than last brand. Love how quiet new refrigerator is. Also, no smells. The Fresh Filter multi air flow is phenomenal. I don't smell any food smells when opening the doors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Fridge - except for heavy door We bought this refrigerator to replace a 7-year old Samsung (of the same style) whose compressor quit. I love the fact that this LG has a 10-year compressor warranty! So far, we like it very well; however, the left-hand door is extremely heavy since it houses the ice maker. Unlike the other door, we cannot just let the door close -- the weight of the ice maker causes it to slam shut each and every time. So with the good (more shelf space!) comes the bad (a heavy door which slams). Otherwise, I think it is a nice appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of space This is our first refrigerator with a water dispenser and an in-door ice maker. We were concerned for the lost space, but this is such a roomy frig that the rest of the space makes up for the lost space in the door.

How do you get the refrigerator to pull away from the wall to clean coils in back

Asked by: GrandmaPt
Depending on the setup, the refrigerator should be able to pull away from the wall. It is suggested to put down some protective covering under the feet of the refrigerator to prevent the unit from damaging the floor. Remember to always unplug the unit before cleaning.

I purchased your LFX28968ST. I noticed that you have the same fridge with a secondary Ice Maker. That model I did not buy. I wish that I did. Is there any way that I can purchase the second ice maker for this model?

Asked by: Tazz3069
Unfortunately there would not be any way to add an additional ice maker to the unit. However, you can purchase an extra ice tray. The part number for the tray is MJS62591801.

My brother has the stainless steel version of my black fridge, model # LFX28968SB. His lights *dim on* when the doors are opened. Mine is a blinding bright light! Is there any way to get my LED lights to dim on like his? Thanks for the help!

Asked by: BreezyinSoCal222
I apologize, but no; this refrigerator does not have any control options available to modify the interior lighting.

I have looked at the official documentation and am unsure if I will have clearance to open the left door far enough that the drawers open. I think maybe it is the door edge clearance? Would the left door work ok with no handle? I have just over 2" on left

Asked by: nimaway82
In order for you to be able to extend the drawers out fully for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 27 cu. ft. Ultra Capacity 3-Door French Door Refrigerator w/Smart Cooling®, Model # LFX28968ST, the doors have to be opened 90°. The Door Edge Clearance with Handle is listed as 4 1/2". What that means is that you need a clearance of 2 1/4" on either side of the refrigerator's door handles for you to open it 90°. Not having a handle on the left door just makes it awkward for you to try opening the refrigerator without a handle...^IFV

What is the ideal temperature for the freezer?

Asked by: keren
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.
