LG LFX28978S Stainless Steel French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - LFX28978SS

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.

Love this fridge

By

Comments about LG LFX28978S White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Runs very quiet. Plenty of organization. I noticed the shelves are designed to be positioned together if you choose to adjust the shelves because of a small notch and for this reason it does not seem possible to only readjust a single shelve without moving the other. Freezer space is roomy and plentiful. Lighting is very bright and easy to see easily throughout the fridge. Love the meat drawers. Would have liked bigger vegetable bins and smaller meat and cheese drawer. Ice maker works great and like the low profile. Very happy with the fridge and glad to have selected this one.

      Comments about LG LFX28978S White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

      I purchased this a few months ago and have loved it. There are a few things that I would have added/changed that would have made this the perfect fridge, but I haven't seen one yet that has every feature. I wish the icemaker had a control to stop making ice when the bin was full, but it doesn't, so I just cut it off until it reaches half full and then cut it back on again. I also wish that the door bins were a little heavier duty plastic than they are, since we put 2 liter drinks in there. The last thing I would have like to have seen was one of the sliding glass shelves on the top row. It was in the picture, but I knew it didn't have one when I purchased it. I specifically wanted this one because I have seen so many people having problems with the ice/water in the door leaking or causing rust later on and I didn't want that. Overall though, I like my LG refrigerator and get a lot of compliments on how much room it has.

              I've had this fridge for over 3 years. I have not had any problems with performance. It cools efficiently, has a lot of space and it looks beautiful in my kitchen. Only thing I am not happy with is the bins on the door break easily. I only have two that aren't broken. Also the freezer bin on the bottom needs more dividers or something to better organize the food in there and that one broke easily too, I have yet to replace the bins.

                  Purchased appliance Nov 2011. Compressor failed/replaced within 2 yrs. Now that compressor has to be replace within 3 years. Not good for a LG product. Replacing 2 compressors within 5 years is unacceptable.

                          I've had this product for 4 years and I have to say I'm very disappointed in the quality of the drawers and shelves. The plastic in these components are low quality and thin. For the money of this appliance it should be built better.

                              I bought this about a month ago. I love it. Very large capacity. Easy to organize food in the fridge and freezer so everything is easy to find. Nice and quiet. No matter where the food is in the fridge it is cold and never frozen (my last fridge which would freeze food at the back at whim). The inside is easy to clean. This is my first stainless steel appliance and I am still getting used to keeping the outside clean. I never knew how much I touched the outside of the doors until I saw all the fingerprint evidence. A damp cloth wipe followed by a microfiber wipe is doing the trick so far to clean the fingerprints.

                                  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.

                                  Comments about LG LFX28978S White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

                                  I have had it for a few days now and everything is working great. A few things peaked my interest though. (1) The fruit/vegetable drawers have the humidity control, but you can easily see between the drawer top and the shelf (air flow). So the humidity control knobs are useless since it will let air flow through the large cracks regardless of the position for the control. (2) There is no longer a butter tray (with the rotating lid to close it off). (3) I replaced an older LG french door fridge with this fridge and the freezer on the old on has a small tray at the top of the freezer door (for small items). The new door still has the molding for it, but didn't come with the tray or the holes punched to put the tray if you wanted to even buy one (if for some reason it was sold separately). (4) For some reason they have changed the color of the fridge to grey instead of black (fridge and freezer door is stainless steel of course, I'm talking about the sides, top and back).
