This refrigerator has a flawed design!
Christopher S Johnson
You have to rub them off with a microfiber towel or get a special stainless steel cleaner.
Amazon Customer
One star for the ice maker/dispenser and water dispenser gets no stars at all.

First of all, the good part: This fridge is a gorgeous piece of kitchenware. The stainless steel looks stunning next to my oak cabinets, and I've gotten quite a few compliments.

However, it's functionality does not live up to its fabulous facade.

So, here are the bad parts:

The water dispenser is separate from and placed above the ice dispenser, so that the drip tray (even if extended) will not catch any excess water sloshed about. It also confuses anyone new to the fridge and you'll end with water all over your floor. We've started keeping water in pitchers when we host parties to prevent this. Still, we inevitably end up having to hand out towels to at least one unfortunate soul.

The ice maker is horrible. The ice cubes stick together constantly, so that you have to bang on it a bit. Plus, we've already had to call and get someone to come out and put in a new ice cube tray when ours got stuck mid-rotation and started making strange grinding noises. Keep in mind, this occurred about 4 weeks after we purchased the fridge. The repairman said it was something about the way the doors close that caused all the problems with the ice cube maker. He said we wouldn't have problems if we didn't open both the doors at once. However, to access the bottom produce drawer, you have to open both doors.

The freezer holds a lot less than our old GE fridge (which was comparably much smaller in size). I'm not quite sure why.

The fridge cools unequally (more so than any other fridge I've ever owned or heard of). I've found that the upper part of the refrigerator actually gets quite warm, and anything placed there will go bad rather quickly.

Most of my reviews are generally favorable, but, then, there's our LG experience... The other reviewers who have cited multiple design and functionality flaws surrounding the icemaker/water dispenser, (left) door mullion, and extraordinarily fragile finish were all spot on. Ironically, I must admit that we had actually researched new refrigerators pretty thoroughly, and had read some of these very criticisms before we bought LG, yet we bought LG anyway (from Home Depot), thinking those who'd made negative comments were merely experiencing buyers remorse, or just had an axe to grind. But, as we, too, have sadly learned over the past year we've owned it, the LG LFX28978ST refrigerator, while beautiful to look at, definitely has some functionality issues. I've simply had to condition myself to working around the product's shortcomings, such as the left door mullion regularly getting out of position and failing to go back into its channel, thus, very often not fully closing (thankfully, the "nagging" buzzer sounds after a minute or two to alert you that the door is ajar); the icemaker that fails to work properly if not used for more than a day (promptly resulting in dependably clumped-together ice cubes) often causing me to remove and beat on the side of the ice container like a madman!), and the weird water tap that causes most users to dispense water all over the floor; well, you get the picture. Oh, and then there's the insanely expensive water filter replacement (every six months) that makes one feel as though one is buying the appliance all over again...Read more ›

Color Name: Stainless Steel
I like the way this fridge looks, and like all stainless appliances it shows streaks and finger prints, but it's worth it to me. If you are troubeled by that issue, don't by anything stainless. That isn't LGs fault, it's just a fact of the finish. I like that I can easily place a half sheet pan on any shelf and the fact that there are four separate drawers. All fridges are warmest at the top, so store less perishiable things up there.

It doesn't make huge amounts of ice, and the cubes are really small, but I don't have a large family so it isn't a problem for me. What is a problem is the way the left door closes. It is easy to have the mullion not go into it's channel, leaving the door open about an inch. It's true that it will beep after a minute or so, but if you grabbed your lunch out of the fridge on your way out the door, it will just beep all day and the fridge will be about 50 degrees on your return. Because I have never owned a french door fridge, I don't know if any other manufacturers have this problem. Could be a challenge for all of them.

I wouldn't recommend this fridge if you have children getting in and out of it for the above reason. If I had it to do over again, I'd buy this same model, even with the mullion problem. I just keep my lunch behind the right hand door now.

There are several things about this refrigerator that we like:

- The unit is very quiet.
- The icemaker is compact.
- The design of the freezer makes it easy to get things out.

There are also a few things that we don't like:

- Each shelf has a bar, possibly present to provide extra strength, located near the front about 1 inch below the upper surface of the shelf. This bar makes a certain amount of space effectively unusable (on every shelf except the top ones). I've never seen shelves this like on any other refrigerator. When I queried the manufacturer to find out whether one can purchase shelves that don't have this bar, I was told that one cannot.

- The small shelves that go on the inside of the door are adjustable, but there are only a few pairs of locking detents, and consequently we can't position these shelves as we would wish. It isn't clear why the designers didn't provide locking detents in more locations.

- The LED lighting assembly near the top of the fridge protrudes downwards 24-25 mm (almost a full inch), making it difficult to use the space on the top shelves. As an electrical engineer, I can't see any reason why the lighting assembly should be so thick. Allowing 1 mm for the circuit board, 1 mm for the plastic cover, and 4 mm for the LEDs, it should have been possible to package this with a total thickness of about 6 mm.

Overall, we're lukewarm about this refrigerator.
