Answer: 
Behind the ice maker door, pull ice tray out there is a small motor in left side and at bottom of that there is a small test button, hold for 5 sec and ice tray should begin to rotate. once rotates back to original position it will fill with ice if water line is all connected correctly.

How many Watts does the LFX28978ST consume?

I plan on purchasing portable generator, but it would be useful if I knew my refrigerator's (the LG LFX28978ST) wattage to understand what generator I should be purchasing. You don't have that listed anywhere.

Answer: 
The wattage requirements of this refrigerator can vary depending upon usage, environment, and contents. All we can state is that the unit requires 115 volts of AC current at a 60 Hz frequency. We also recommend having this unit on a dedicated circuit.

Answer: 
Sometimes the ice freezes together and you have to take the bin out and shake it to free the ice up. Be sure to do this over the sink since it will make a mess.

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this refrigerator. It is recommended to check the dispenser funnel to ensure that the unit is not clogged. If the unit is not even attempting to dispense, then there may be some other problem with it. 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....
