LG LFX28978S Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - LFX28978BK

If you’ve ever wished you had more space so you could be more organized, your wish has been granted. With 28 cubic feet, you get that extra space. Our own Slim SpacePlus™ provides ice while freeing up even more room in the door. And with French-doors it’s real easy getting food in or out of this refrigerator.

Key Features:

  • Slim SpacePlus™ Ice System
  • Tall Ice & Water Dispensing System
  • Ultra-Large Capacity (28 cu. ft.)
  • Enhanced Exterior / Interior Styling Package
  • Linear Compressor

Features:

  • One very cool design: It's great having an ice maker, but not if it means you can't fit all of your food in the fridge or freezer. The Slim SpacePlus™ice system provides more usable shelf space and makes way for additional door bin space.
  • Ultra-Large Capacity (28 cu. ft.): Stock-up and store everything you need. With a cavernous 28 cubic feet of space, this LG French Door refrigerator gives you ample space for all of your family’s favorite foods and keeps them conveniently organized and within reach.
  • Peace of mind: When you buy a refrigerator, you don't want to worry that it won't last. Because the Linear Compressor motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty
  • One size fills all: From pitchers to pint glasses: finally a water dispenser that can accommodate just about all. The water- and ice-dispenser in this LG 4-Door refrigerator is one of the tallest around, measuring in at an ultra-accommodating 12.6 inches.
  • Enhanced Exterior / Interior Styling Package: Includes stainless-clad dispenser, contoured doors, hidden hinges, recessed LED lighting, and an integrated crisper/deli storage center. Presents a sophisticated and refined look, inside and out.

    Love the design and all the interior options. Gigantic! The freezer is huge and easy to access. The drawers glide smoothly and lighting inside is bright. The only con is that the inner left door seal that swings out of the way when opening the door and swings back when closing both doors sometimes doesn't flip back into place when closing both doors. This causes the left door not to close properly. Think it's a matter of getting used to the way it works and the touch it takes to operate it.

    We were in the market two years ago for a new fridge. After lots of research I narrowed it down to this LG unit and another Manufacturer of similar portions. In the end we made a terrible mistake. This fridge is very misleading. First off it states it is a 28 cubic ft unit, but we have not be able to maximize that space because the shelving design is not very intuitive. Things such as gallons of milk do not fit towards the back nor do many normal sized bottles. No we have actually lost 2-3 cubic ft. Then the door shelves are also under designed. Can barely hold a normal bottle of mustard. Who designs these things and what kind of food do they put into here for testing? The freezer area is actually great. No complaints there, but the fridge design is EXTREMELY poor. Also the water and ice dispenser is apparently very confusing. Over the last two years we have had more guests get water on the floor or themselves thinking they were getting ice. My advice, steer clear of this product. For the money you spend on it you will be just as dissatisfied about it as we are. The sad thing is we are considering purchasing a cheaper fridge just for the additional storage space.

        Comments about LG LFX28978S White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

        We have owned this LG Appliance for almost two months, and it is quite large, however, if the bottom freezer was a little smaller which would give you more space in the refrigerator,[Now] THAT WOULD BE AWESOME !!!.

        Two ugly problems with this refrigerator.

        By Mike in Ogden, Utah

        from Ogden, UT, USA

        Comments about LG LFX28978S White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

        I WANT to love this refrigerator, or even like it, having spent so much for it, but two glaring problems keep me from appreciating it. 1. The hinged strip attached to the left door, and which creates a sealing surface for the RIGHT door when closed does not return to the proper position for the door to be closed on its own, as the designers intended. The spring is so weak that operating the flap is basically a manual operation every time the door is opened. Aggravating, and would have been a disqualifier had I known about it before purchasing. I can see from other reviewers that this is a design problem. 2. The ice maker is a very poor design. We are constantly required to open the cover and stir the ice with the handle of a plastic spatula to break the ice free so that it will dispense. There is no proper ice agitator as with most other ice makers. Very aggravating, and would have been a disqualifier for me if I had known about it. ALSO, and I see that other owners suffer this as well, the ice dispensing chute jams about 50% of the time. You have to reach up into the chute to pull the cover door open manually, which dumps a bunch of ice onto the floor. I've tried cleaning it with vinegar to make sure calcification wasn't the problem, but nothing I've done works. I think the servo that opens the door fully just doesn't work properly 50% of the time. I would not purchase this model again, and I am, in fact, considering selling it used so that I can buy a properly designed and built refrigerator. If I do that, it won't be an LG.

            We're using this refrigerator for 3 years now. There's plenty of space for just about everything. Controlling the temperatures couldn't be easer. Changing the water filter is a snap. The ice maker has started to cause trouble. We seem to always have to unblock the cube discharge when we're asking for cubed ice. The strip between the French doors (door mullion), has to be moved manually just about every-time the refrigerator doors are opened, and then closed. This is because the mullion spring is weak. Made cheaply. The decals, or whatever is use for water, and ice indications on the outside of the left door are completely worn off.

                I absolutely love this Fridge. There is so much space and it does a wonderful job keeping everything cold. We especially like the slim space ice maker which frees up so much room in our fridge. The only thing I would mention is that we noticed the ice tends to get stuck together on occasion and we need to open it up and knock it apart. Not a major inconvenience though.

                    We've had the refrigerator for a couple of months now, and have no complaints. Lots of room, great temperature control. The space saving icemaker is great. If I could change one thing, I'd divide the wide deli tray into two halves so that you don't have to open both French doors to get at it.

                        We have had our LG for a little over two months and I can say that I have been very impressed with its ability to maintain fruits and vegetables fresh longer than our previous refrigerator. Everything is accessible with easy and there is tons of space. The indoor water and ice dispenser is compact and always has ice. We are truly enjoying our LG refrigerator.

                            After 15 months, the top and center hinge of the mullion are broken. Both appear to be made of a cheap plastic. We now have to carefully close the left door first and then the right. My concern is that this component will fail completely thus rendering the entire refrigerator useless.

                                We love the LED lights and appreciate it having a water filter which are two things our prior refrigerator lacked. The ice maker is fine with sufficient capacity for our needs. The water dispenser may be a bit tricky first time used but it takes only one try to determine how to use it and it works very well. There is sufficient for us although somewhat limited storage space for taller items. It is very quiet and the temperature display for both refrigerator and freezer is a nice feature as is the door alarm. It is easy to adjust the temperatures. We love this refrigerator!
