Icemaker fill leaking on new LG LFX28978SW french door refrig

I just purchased an LG LFX28978SW french door refrigerator. They wouldn't hook up the water feed because it was coming from a reverse osmosis filter system. I hooked it up later and when the ice maker fills water runs out the front of the control panel and ice shoot. Is low pressure causing this or could something be wrong with the unit?

Do you have the "dummy filter plug" installed and not the actual water filter in the upper left of the inside of the fridge?

I purchased a LG 24cu ft French door fridge, manual says it takes 12-24 hr to make ice. When I hooked up the water should it have filled the icemaker or will it do that after the 12/24 hr period?


it will take about 12-24 hrs for the unit to be at the controlled temperature that you want -during that time it will be be trying to make ice if you have water hook up turn on the ice maker -but it will take awhile since the unit wont be at temp for the ice to form and accumulate

LG Model lfx28978sw french door freezer door hard to open


its likely you have frost inside your tracks. best option for you is to defrost the freezer and let the ice inside the tracks thaw. then after the ice thaws the tracks should work better. If that dosen't help you may need new tracks for the freezer door

Everything in the fridge and drawers began to freeze about 10 months after purchase. Reducing the temperature to as high as 46 F doesn't help.


Check the ice bank door to make sure it is closed properly. It is the door that covers the icemaker. Usually that is the problem that someone has left the door ajar leaking freezing temperature into the refrigerator.

Ice maker does not make ice.


The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig may be frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Solution #2 Replace the "water inlet valve" at bottom back right of refrig. Easy To Do.

LG LFX25960ST refrigerator food freezing above the pantry draw. Made all the tempature adjustments and still happening.


I have the same problem and I know the solution.
For LG to get their "in the door icemaker" to work, they have to blow cold air into the door's icemaker compartment. This air travels through two vents located just inside the refrigerator on the left side. The problem LG has is that the seals between the door and the refrigerator for these vents leak. This means that cold air is vented into the refrigerator compartment. Any sensitive food placed on the bottom two shelf on the left side will freeze. I can place two bowls of water in my refrigerator and make ice in 6 hours, even though the refrigerator is set to 38 degrees. The good thing is that LG knows there is a design problem and they know they can not fix it. After calling LG repairmen out for my freezing problem and not getting the seals fixed, LG gave up. Of course LG will try replacing the seals, and then replacing the door; but the real problem is a bad seal design. Just keep putting bowls in your refrigerator and as long as they continue to freeze up, keep calling LG back and demand that they fix the problem. LG can not fix the problem because it is a bad design, so now I am getting a new refrigerator Model LFX 29927, which is better and has dual icemakers. If you an LG refrigerator with their in the door icemaker, place two bowls of water inside the refrigerator, and if your seals are bad and they freeze; complain to LG until they give you a new refrigerator.

How do you change the ice cube setting on the 25cf LG French Door bottom freezer? I cannot see anywere in the manual where it indicates where you change this setting?!


The icemaker requires a water pressure of 1.5 - 8.5kgf/cm2. It is acceptable if the water supply fills a cup of 180cc with water in 3 seconds. The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.
