What people are saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very unreliable ice maker Overall the size of refrigerator is very nice, but I have this product 19 months and the ice maker has been repaired once and replaced once. Still it just stops making ice and I must unplug refrigerator for a minute or so before plugging back in for it to start working again. Considering the cost of this product, it should perform better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible products! Read First We renovated our kitchen over a year ago and purchased 4 brand new LG products. This refrigerator is a piece of junk. It has already stopped working 2 times since we purchased it over 1 year ago. The first time we had it repaired under warranty took over 2 weeks to get it repaired. Now a few months later, it stopped cooling and freezing AGAIN!!! It has something to do with the refrigerant leaking, which in researching this problem on the web, has occurred with other purchasers with this product. But I'm also having issues with dishwasher and microwave...never again LG!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the features! Performance, not so much! Had this refrigerator for less than a year & had to have the ice-in-door dispenser motor replaced. Took several weeks for LG to locate an authorized repairman as there are none in my area. Repairman had to come to my home to diagnose the problem, then order the part and return to install it. This took several additional weeks. Then, just two months out of warranty, the freezer stuck in a defrost mode for several days while I was in the hospital causing my food to thaw to the point of ruining most of it. Mysteriously, it returned to freezing mode. Never did figure out why that happened. Shortly after that, the ice cube tray in the ice maker stuck in a twisted position and would not refill with water for some unknown reason. We turned it off for a few days and then turned it back on again and it has worked just fine ever since. Frequently, the food in the frig section and produce drawers freezes ruining things like lettuce and fruit. It seems to have intermittent super cold spots. Who can guess which day or which section is going to freeze next? Don't know why this unit keeps having these quirky issues. Maybe, I got a lemon. Definitely expected much better performance from such a reputable brand and for the price we paid.

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.

Water and ice maker has stopped working it has a code 1-F 

Asked by: Kimbonham
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.

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

Model LFX28968SB

Need to relocate a couple of shelves. Instructions show lifting up the front edge of the shelf and then lifting the back edge brackets up and out to remove the shelf. Problem: One of the shelves we want to move is located side by side with another shelf and the two shelves are locked together in the center making removal impossible. Is it possible to unlock the 2 shelves & relocate the left side down 1 or 2 slots?
Asked by: HWReed
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator. Both of the shelves, in this refrigerator, should each consist of 2 split/half shelves. As such, removing both shelves together should allow the separation of the 2 components, and allow them to be reinstalled separately.
