About - LG LFX28991[ST]

The LG LFX28991[ST] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the LFX28991[ST] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Temperature performance:
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.

Energy efficiency:
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two models with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.

Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.
About This Brand

Suprised at CR rating
Bad Ice Maker
Flimsy Shelves
Freezing in Refrigerator
Multiple repairs
Best Uses
This unit has been a disapointment from day one. The ice maker has had multiple repairs and still does not function. There is a door flap that opens when you get ice and ours does not close after ice dispensing and therefore the ice in the compartment melts and and the freezer looses temperature. The flimsy shevles have broken in various places. Food freezes in the refrigerator and we have been on the ball with temperature adjustments. But still I get hard frozen salads in the crisper, and go to grill some chicken and have to spend a half hour defrosting it after being in my refrigerator for 2 days. The saving grace is that I spent a couple of hundred dollars for an extended warranty and it has paid off.

Worst Refrigerator Ever
Attractive Design
Bad Ice Maker
Multiple Defects In 9 Mos
Not Cold Enough
Best Uses
This refrigerator has broken 3 times since it was purchased 9 months ago including issues with the door, leaking filter and now best of all the fans froze up due to ice build up. The repair tech has been out 3 times now and today we're told that we need to unplug the refrigerator for 48 hours so they can determine if there is ice build up in the lines. We've been without our refrigerator for 2 weeks now and it's been a circus between LG, Home Depot and the service company. This thing is a piece of defective junk and I'm sorry I bought it. Disappointed in the LG lack of quality and the run around in trying to get this fixed. Also, I attempted to post this same customer feedback to the LG site and they rejected it saying it did not meet their policy. What a surprise. Just goes to show you how they are skewing honest feedback from their customers.
