What people are saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Device But Unbearably Loud The form, features and ergonomics of this appliance are all top notch. The space inside and the orientation of the shelves is perfect. With that said, the noise the compressor makes during the cooling period of the appliance almost ruins it. After opening the freezer drawer or front refrigerator doors the compressor starts to recool the interior based on the thermostat's setting. This is a known activity the refrigerator performs. The 1 year warranty lapsed and I can't get it serviced without spending money on scheduling a services call without knowing if they can fix it or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love everything about it. I bought it 2 weeks ago and so far, no problems. Plenty of room in the refrigerator and freezer. Ice maker and in door water work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted I'm so glad to have a good water filter in my refrigerator. No more bottles, no plastic waste to litter the earth. Easy to replace, with notification on the refrigerator info center. It's convenient and easy to use. Makes this little corner of the world a bit simpler.

my friend has one of these and he does not like it because it develops condisation on the top and face of the door where the ice maker is. He also said the door on the ice maker has been frozen shut at times. His is an older model , did this get fixed?

Asked by: himie
There are a few different factors that may cause moisture or condensation on the outside cabinet of the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 27 cu. ft. Ultra Capacity 3-Door French Door Refrigerator w/Smart Cooling®, Model # LFX28968SW. If the doors do not shut properly, cool air can escape and cool the cabinet area around the gap. The coolness of the cabinet will cause the humidity in the air to condense on the unit. You will want to visually inspect the door gaskets for any gaps in the gasket and check for dirty or damaged seals and that the doors are properly aligned. Moisture in the air can also condense on the door mullion if the energy saver mode is on. Energy Saver mode will deactivate the heater that prevents condensation from forming on the door mullion. The default on the refrigerator is with the energy saver on so the heater will be off. If condensation is forming on the door mullion, turn the energy saver mode off until it resolves the condition. It may be necessary to deactivate this feature during the summer months when conditions are more humid, or if you are in a coastal environment. In humid environments such as coastal areas during summer months, moisture in the air may condense on the cabinet which is usually cooler than the room environment, especially where the ice maker is. If this is the case, condensation should be minimal and can be dried off with a soft cloth. There could also be excess moisture on the refrigerator from cooking as well. If you have been cooking most the day for a few hours, wipe the excess moisture away...^IFV

Ice maker stopped making ice

We have had our refrigerator for about 2 months and it has worked great but this weekend it stopped making ice. We removed the bin and tried to figure out what is going on but can't figure it out.

We just bought a refridgerator SKU #LFX28968SW. We were told by the salesman @ Home Depot that we could buy a side shelf for it that has a closing top

My wife wants a shelf that can be used on the top right hand side as you face the fridge that hold butter and has a tip up top cover. How do I go about ordering this shelf and how much is it?
Asked by: quaker22
We regret the incorrect information provided by the dealer. This refrigerator was not designed for compatibility with such a shelf or tray. We cannot guarantee that such a shelf would fit on this door.
