Faulty Ice Maker on My LG Side by Side Refrigerator LSC279107T

by Randy D.
(WA, USA)

We have a LG side by side refrigerator (LSC279107T) that with less than one year in use had a faulty ice dispenser switch.

Repair took over a month, and other problems were found. The ice tray apparently warps and causes water to leak and form an ice stalagmite.

It took 2 1/2 months to get the part to the repairman and so far another month has passed and it still hasn't been replaced.

And the ice dispenser chute has a stress crack, and the motor to turn the screw that moves the ice is stalled out (hums and sometimes tries to move).

I expect much better from a refrigerator that is just over a year old! The service is horrible and the product poorly crafted.

I complained to LG about the service that just doesn't respond and they promised it wouldn't happen again. And yet still, nothing!

Model #LSC279107T, titanium color, bought at Home Depot, side X side, ~26 cubic feet.

LG Side by Side Refrigerator are the Worst Product Ever
by: Anonymous

LG refrigerators are absolutely the worst product I have every owned.

The lever in the water dispenser sticks and won't stop flowing.

The ice maker sticks...I have had this problem, fixed 3 times.

The fuse blew out - the freezer drips water inside and I get icicles down the back of the freezer and all over the things inside

Started having problems within 2 months of getting it and it has been non-stop
ever since. The customer service takes forever.

I will never buy anything LG again and I tell anyone who will listen the same thing.

Problems with My LG Refrigerator's Ice maker
by: Anonymous

I have had nothing but trouble with the ice maker in my LG refrigerator.

LG has a poor product, but they won't take responsibility. Never again will I buy another LG appliance!

Another LG Ice Maker Problem
by: Anonymous

I have been reading about all the problems with LG refrigerators. I bought my 5yr old home and it is filled with LG products.

The ice maker fills with water then seems to over flow down the inside wall of freezer. I haven't tried to get it fixed yet but not looking forward to it after I have read all about similar problems.
