Elegant Large-Capacity French Door Refrigerator
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. Their 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.

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.

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.

Store More
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.

Sophisticated Style and Performance
Contoured doors, hidden hinges, and a host of great interior features give your refrigerator a look as sophisticated as it is functional.

Fresher Vegetables. Easier Access.
Save your produce and stop your searching. The versatile 4 Compartment Crisper System gives you easy access and more ways to organize your fruits, vegetables and beverages. This refrigerator comes with two humidity-controlled crisper drawers, a full-width Glide-N-Serve drawer, and a bonus drawer for fruits and vegetables.

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.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 209 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this refrigerator Just got this refrigerator and I love it!! The space is great it's so quiet and the ice maker works just fine. If you're in the market for an new refrigerator you must take a look at this one! You'll be happy you did!! 9/1/10
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product and value Very pleased with AJ Madison's service. I called to check on delivery status and they followed-up as promised. As for the refrigerator, it arrived on time, and is a dream. It has lots of space in both the frig and freezer sections. And I love, love, love the compactness of the ice maker unit that sits snugly on the door, not taking up precious refrigerator space. The only negative was the exterior side panels are painted gray rather than stainless, so it wouldn't be ideal for freestanding placement - its definitely meant to be a built-in model. I did a lot of research to get a large cu ft frig for a great value, AJ Madison delivered on that. 9/24/10
Rated 4 out of 5 by good purchase Fridge works great no problems yet have had it approx 3 months, could use a litle more room but still like it. A little tip for people having a problem with low flow from the water dispenser, DO NOT USE A SELF TAPPING SADDLE VALVE- USE A NON SELF TAPPING SADDLE VALVE IT WILL ALLOW YOU TO DRILL OUT THE HOLE ON IN THE WATER LINE TO 1/4 FOR MORE FLOW IT WORKS GREAT !!!!! IT WILL ALSO PRODUCE ICE FASTER. I BELIEVE IT EVEN SUGGEST TO DO THIS IN THE MANUAL. GOOD LUCK 10/24/10
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ice Maker & Refridgeration System Fail I have now owned my LFX28978ST refrigerator for two months. From day 1, the ice maker does not keep the ice cold enough, causing the ice to melt together, which prevents the ice from coming out the ice dispenser in the door. Additionally the refrigeration system completely failed, which resulted in a repair man to come out on 3 different occasions during the work week for a total of 5.5 hours to make the repair. On the second repair day, the repair man came out to only diagnose the problem, but did not come equipped with the necessary repair parts to complete the job, resulting in the need for a third visit. LG won't cover food spoilage for any reason, even though it took them a week from the initial service call to fix the problem. After the 3 repair visits, the ice maker is still not working properly. LG's customer service department is the worst I have ever dealt with. I will NEVER buy another LG product ever again. 12/23/10
