  1. I tried to replace the air filter this morning. First, the manual does not say where to locate the air filter, but I remembered that there was a filter in the back of my 7 months old LG french door fridge. Per the short manual instructions, I was able to turn the rectangular filter cover to the left and it came loose on the r/h side, but stayed tight on the l/h side. I twisted the cover back in to the right and it went back to its original, locked state. Twisted it back and forth multiple times, always with the same effect. Despite assuming that something wasn’t right, I decided to gently start pulling, but it still didn’t come loose. I twisted it back in place one more time and looked at the manual again. In there, they only say you twist it and then you can remove it. So I twisted it counter-clockwise again and pulled a little more, which broke off one of the tabs which hold the cover in place. A spare part is about $30, plus shipping. I am trying to glue the plastic tab back in place. If the glue helps holding the cover in place, I won’t touch it again and forget about the filter changes.

  2. I am having the same problem as Sandy Parks… The Air Filter will not turn so that I can replace the filter….. Sandy, did you ever get some help with this? Do I need to get a repair person in to work on it? The Fridge is 1 1/2 years old.

  3. I have had my LG french door fridge since 2012. Never knew about replacing the air filter until very recently. I don’t know where to locate the air filter, as the above video must be using a newer model. And I can’t seem to find the information in the manual. Please tell me where to find the air filter area, so I can change the filter. Pictures, if possible, would help. (The Model #LFX28978ST/02 ) Thank you so much for your help.

  4. As Ms. McCoy says, “I replaced my Fresh Air Filter just fine but when I press the Fresh Air Filter button and hold for 3 seconds it does not reset. All it does is switch from Power to Auto (which does not show).” Same goes for me. Frustrating . . .

  6. My air filter will not budge in my refrigerator for me to insert a new filter. I turn to the left and it does nothing. I have only had this fridge a little over a year
