Slim SpacePlus® Ice System

Fresher Is Better
Smart Cooling Plus technology is designed to maintain superior conditions within the refrigerator. The Linear Compressor and Dual Evaporators react quickly to humidity and temperature levels and help keep your food fresher, longer. Meanwhile, strategically-placed vents in every section help to surround your food with cool, fresh air no matter where you put it. 

Refreshment On Hand
A convenient water and ice dispenser keeps ice and water close at hand, saving you from opening the door every time you want water or ice. Keeping the door closed means the temperature inside stays more consistent, saving you money and helping keep your food fresh.

LFX28968SB 36" 27 Cu. Ft. Capacity ENERGY STAR Freestanding 3 Door French Door Refrigerator with Smart Cooling System, Slim SpacePlus Ice System, Smart Pull Handle in Black is rated 4.691588785046729 out of 5 by 428.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and user-friendly I like this microwave so much! It has great pre-sets for the things we use it most for. It has sensor reheat and cook so I don't over-cook anything. I use it a lot for steaming veggies in the bag, and there is a preset for that. I thought there was something wrong with the turn-table motor as it was really noisy one day, but it turned out there were some crumbs under it, and a good cleaning fixed it right up. The exhaust fan is good, although venting exterior would always be better. I love that the vent can be extended out over my front burners where my big burners are for frying and boiling pasta... the things I most often use the fan for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Fridge/Freezer is absolutely amazing Not a day goes by that I do not comment on how much I love this French Door Fridge/Freezer. I never cease to be amazed at how much room is inside the Fridge section and how versatile the shelving adjustments are. I am crazy about just how much storage there is in the doors although other reviews might not agree. I bought this to replace a 14-year old side by side. This Fridge makes me feel as if I was left behind for 14 years. The freezer section is also fantastic. It holds much more than the old freezer. Again, contrary to other reviews we have never run out of ice, even when we have had company. I have already recommended this item to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features and Great Looks Too We purchased this refrigerator on 9/6/15 and have been very pleased with the product. After reading a few reviews with what we felt were "nit pick" comments, we were surprised to find that they unit did not have any of the negative comments written except that one door was a little bit lower than the other. LG gives you a little wrench to use to level the doors so no big deal. Refrigerator closes properly and the noise when it runs takes a little getting used to as it will kick on as soon as you close a door but not excessively noisy. We would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a really nice refrigerator for their kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY NICE I am coming from a side by side that came with the house and I was never crazy about. I like the French doors makes it easy to see what is in the frig, I am glad that I bought the model with only 2 side by side drawers not the 3 drawers (I think 2 the drawer maybe last years model not sure) and didn't listen to the salesman and go with the 3 drawer. The only 2 things I don't like about this frig is the stainless steel is not very stainless it shows every finger print and I am the only one in the house I have cleaned this frig more in the last month than the prev frig in a year and I think this frig is very loud. Over all I am glad that I purchased it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only one issue the leveling legs When we were adjusting the leveling it seems that the metal that is part of the refrigerator cabinet is very thin. It could not withstand the adjustment and the screw leg stripped out on the refrigerator cabinet. We are using a 3/8" 4"x6" piece of plywood under the stripped out leg. Not sure yet but I think this is causing a very load buzzing sound when the refrigerator is running. Using the Live Chat we have another Service Tech coming out to see if this is the issue for the noise. Once this is addressed I will completely love this refrigerator. LG I would recommend making that metal piece thicker and the adjustment leg longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of space inside LFX28968ST - French Door Refrigerator - The size and arrangement are especially handy. I was delighted at how much space inside. The LED lighting makes opening the doors pleasant. No fumbling around to find things. The ice cubes are a good size and shape. No problems with the amount of ice. The freezer on the bottom very easy to organize, (note: does not have LED lighting just standard lighting). The unit is quiet. The only thing I do not like about it, is the water dispenser. I wish it dispense the water where the ice comes out. My only suggestion is to have the stainless wrap around the sides. I am very pleased with the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent so far We really like this refrigerator. We bought it two months ago. The ice is made fine. The water is cool. Best feature is the freezer door handle which has an assisted mechanism to help open with little effort. If there was one area to improve its the leveling feet. They are plastic. LG states you can use a screwdriver to adjust, but you're better off using a wrench or channel locks as the slots for the screwdriver are not that durable. Also, the documentation for overall height did not take into consideration the minimum height for the non-removable wheels. Plan on adding 3/4" to the opening height. All in all great. I will update this review in about a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW ! every home should have one, say no more. My door in door full depth is just so unbelievable and clever in design. I bought it after being badly let down by a competitor on 2 models. This is almost silent, so easy to keep clean, so very convenient to use for the often used items such as milk and juice etc; Cheaper to run due to not needing to fully open the doors often.The glider drawers are Rolls Royce quality and do not twist or feel slack like other makes. The ice maker is far superior to any other on the market, and so quick. Having seperate levers for water or ice is so easy, as we all have forgotten to switch from ice to water, no need with this one, AWESOME
