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:

      I've had this fridge for almost 3 years. So far its been a good fridge for the most part. No problems with keeping food nice and cold. Nice features on control panel. So far the bins inside my fridge have all but two broken. Had them replaced.. So I'm not happy about the durability of these bins. The door to the butter compartment broke too. One blade from the ice maker just fell out from the fridge...... just fell out. Beautifully lit with LED lights. Very spacious. Overall, its a great fridge except for the durability of the bins and that one blade that fell out.

              I bought this 9/6/2010 and the compressor failed in the first year. Over the past 5 years we've had our home warranty repair this fridge, with certified LG repairmen, at least twice a year; 4 compressors, motherboard, front panel, ice machine, you name it. Will never by LG again.

                  My first review was rejected. My ice maker has had pieces break off and fall into my drinking glass. The coating/plastic on the control panel is bubbling up and peeling. The ice maker does not have a capacity that meets our needs.

                      We purchased all stainless steel appliances, the refrigerator, dishwasher,stove and microrowave. I loved the look of the appliances. I cannot get them clean. I have had it. The runs from spills, water and so on will not come off, i have thought about ordering a whole new bottom drawer for my refrigerator, this is crazy . I think i have had the fridge for maybe a year. I have tried and tried to get the runs to come out and with no luck, if you the market for new appliances i do not reccomend stainless steel.If anyone knows how to get the runs out please let me know. Thank you!!

                          Have had this refrigerator for 11 months now and love it more now than we did the first day it was delivered. When family and friends come over, they always say that they wish that they had a refrigerator like ours. It holds way more than we need. The deli drawer, vegetable and bread bins keep food fresh three times longer than any other fridge that we have owned. It's also quiet and the color of the stainless steel is the best I've seen versus the other manufacturers.

                              After our old side-by-side died the week before Christmas, we had to find a replacement, and fast. I had been wanting a French door refrigerator for some time and decided that if I was going to have to purchase a new refrigerator anyway, I was going to get what I wanted. I love the capacity of this fridge. Am very happy with the separate temperature controls of the storage bins as it keeps our food fresher, longer. Being able to slide the top shelf back to a partial depth is great for the occasional taller items without having to move an entire shelf. Love the fact that they have put storage shelves on the door with the ice maker. Even though these shelves are not deep, they are perfect for condiments so they don't end up hidden behind other items. It is also very quiet. I never noticed how loud the old refrigerator was until we had this one. We have had some minor problems with the ice sticking in the ice maker but it has not been a major problem to date. We have had the fridge long enough to change the water filter. While it appears to be working properly, it did not reset on the digital display. Have not had a chance to see if there is a problem with this or not. I like the capacity of the freezer as well. Was concerned about a bottom freezer due to occasional back problems but the height of the handle is good and it open/rolls out easily. I was concerned about the center flap on the upper door as it does not appear to be high quality. Have not had a problem yet. After reading other reviews, I will be more careful about closing the door to prevent a problem. I would definitely recommend this product.

                                  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 !!!.
