What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NICE BUT DOORS DON'T CLOSE ALL THE WAY I brought this a month ago, it's very nice, lots of room. The doors don't close all the way and that's a problem. However the bells start sounding off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We had plenty of time for researching for a replacement since our 15 year old was still working. Our choice was easy after reviewing comparing the features and specifications between the brands. We selected this LG product because of its three door functionality, drawers, lightning and the unique linear compressor. After almost two month of use, we are very satisfied, the uni is extremely quiet, the separate water and ice dispensers are easy and practical to use. We made the right choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I could even imagine!!! I purchased this refrigerator at Lowe's and could not be happier! We replaced a side by side that came with the house. We never had enough room, and now WOW! Love the fridge!!! Buy this one without hesitation. It is a great buy, does the job incredibly well, tons of space, and the elegant bright white color looks fabulous in my white kitchen. No doubt, this is an awesome appliance!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Buy and LG LFX28968SW Refrigerator I purchased this refrigerator in Dec 2013. As of yesterday, it has stopped cooling twice. The first time it took weeks to get it working again. From the research I have done, I believe there is a Freon leak that cannot be repaired because it is a "sealed unit", whatever that means. Also, the ice maker has leaked since day one, making ice in the lower freeze compartment as well as puddles on the floor. Buyer beware!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like my new refrigerator! Our old side by side finally died and so I started researching on line for a new refrigerator. I hated our old side by side. Never enough room and I have back problems so I hated having to bend so far down to get items on the bottom. I finally decided on this LG French Door and absolutely love it! It has so much room that I was able to get everything out of our old side by side and the garage refrigerator into this one. Of course that will save us money too. I really like that I don't have to bend so far down to get the refrigerator items that we use frequently since everything is no lower than waste level. The stainless steel finish is a little more maintenance than our old white one but looks elegant. I could go on forever with this review and all of the great features but I don't want this to turn into an essay. I would definately recommend this LG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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

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. 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

No installation instructions for the Base Grille. My question is: there's a strip of black rubber along the bottom, does that bend inward, under the fridge, or outward toward the room? I could not find in the manual directions on installing properly.

Asked by: AKMapGirl
The Toe grille for the LG Ultra-Large Capacity 3 Door French Door Refrigerator with Smart Cooling, Model # LFX28968B goes over that rubber strip so that it will be under the refrigerator when the toe grille is attached properly. It should be inside the toe grille...^IFV

Are all three doors self-closing?

We were at Lowe's and the right sided door did not close automatically; the left door closed rather forcefully. The LG specs state that the hinges are self-closing hinges. Therefore, are both refrigerator doors self-closing? Also, is the freezer door self-closing?
Asked by: LGEnthusiast
I had the same problem and the installer and the call back technician both missed it. Only the LG-dispatched repair person found it. There is a white plastic shipping part on the bottom of the hinge that needs to be removed. It can only be seen looking up from the floor. Removal took 10 seconds.

Can doors and freezer drawer be easily removed for entry through 31" house door?

Asked by: flyman
The way our french door unit made it through was to open the upper doors and remove the bottom drawer. The 2 delivery guys used moving straps and just walked it right in.

Scratches on Stainless Steel

I remove scratches from Stainless Steel and got a call from someone with model# lfx28968st. Does this have any type of coating on the stainless? Thank you
Asked by: NYScratchRepair
You should contact LG first to find out what type or grade of stainless steel your refrigerator is. There are DIY scratch repair kit available such as Scratch-B-Gone. It really depends though how deep they are and what your expectations are. Good luck.

how do I remove the base grille?

Asked by: jcb41
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator. The base grille typically snaps into or out of place, unless there are bolts visibly holding it into place.
