What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellence in refrigerators Have had for about two months and really think it is great.
Date published: 2015-09-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spacious ergonomic design. Lovely design - adds beauty to the kitchen - spacious interior and adjustable shelving allows great storage capacity.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the look, not the functionality I am disappointed that after spending thousands of dollars on a refrigerator, it is freezing my homegrown produce. I have had service people out three times in two months and have been told that there is nothing they can do because of the design of the unit - location of the ice maker within the door. Seems LG should have figured this out before it went on the market. Also, there is not a ton of space in this thing once you start loading it up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large Counter Depth Fridge That Fits I have an older home and the fridge has to be counter depth so as to not interfere with other cabinet doors and the dish washer door. It is so great to find a larger capacity counter depth french door fridge that fits! Not only that but there are very few that fit that have and in-the-door ice and water dispenser. Very happy with the fridge, freezer, and the ice dispenser. I like having a place in the door for gallon containers and I have appreciated the slide out shelf for taller items. I really like the slim space ice system because it leaves more storage space available for food. Great fridge. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Capacity Modern Look After 4 months it is clear this was a great purchase for our home. The counter depth is just right and we did not give up interior space. The shelves and drawers are designed to maximize the available space inside and they function perfectly. My wife loves the ease with which everything can be reached,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features, quiet and ea use We have had the appliance for several months and find it very good. The icemaker is quick and makes plenty of ice. The water dispenser keeps the water cold for drinking. My wife is overjoyed with the refrigerator and it's storage space. It would be nice however if the front came in different colors. I would have preferred black, but despite that, we bought it anyway because of it's features and dependability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Refrigerator is a Keeper After having this LG refrigerator for a few months now, I can rate this as the best I have ever owned. The veggie keeper does an great job at keeping veggies lasting a long time. All the fresh last twice as long as my other brand. The Ice water dispenser has the coldest and tastiest water you could possible get. I live by myself and found this is perfect counter-depth enough for me and even when I entertain. The freezer holds much more than I thought. I love this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from product failed I have owned this refrigerator for 3 years and it died 3 weeks ago. I won't buyanother one.

Looking for a fridge that is countertop deep, 36w x 68 h? Preferably 2door fridge with bottom freezer

Asked by: Jules2
Jules2, we noticed that you're in Ontario, so you may want to check the Canadian site or contact them with this inquiry since models over there may differ from the models we have on the LGUS site. On the US site, we currently have 2 Counter Depth Refrigerators, the LG Large Capacity Counter Depth 3 Door French Door Refrigerator, Model # LFX21976ST and the LG Large Capacity Counter Depth 3 Door French Door Refrigerator, Model # LFC21776ST. Both as you can see are 3 door, there aren't any Counter Depth refrigerators that are 2 door. The widths for the Counter Depth Models are 35 3/4" and both have a height of 68 3/8" to the top of the case and a height of 69 3/4" to the top of the hinge. The only 2 door Refrigerator that has the width you're looking for, 36" (actually 35 7/8" for this model) is the LG 26 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity Side-By-Side Refrigerator, Model # LSXS26326* which comes with a Black, White or Stainless Steel finish. It has a height of 69" to the top of the case and a height of 70 1/8" to the top of the hinge...^IFV

will the LFX21976ST

Asked by: trilogy
The Energy Star Qualified LG Large Capacity Counter Depth 3 Door French Door Refrigerator, Model # LFX21976ST had a width of 35 3/4" and with the doors open 90° with the Handles, the width is 44 1/2". It has a depth of 30" (includes handles) and when the door is opened 90°, the depth is 42 1/4". The Height to the Top of the Case is 68 3/8" and the height to the Height to the Top of the Door Hinge is 69 3/'4". The required clearance for the sides of the unit is 1/8" and 1" on the top and 1" in the back of the refrigerator. From the numbers you gave, it appears that the 73 (inches?) is the height, but we were not sure if the 39 (inches?) is the width or the depth...^IFV

LFX21976ST Dual Ice Makers?

There is an ice maker in the door obviously. However is there a 2nd ice maker in the freezer like the LFXS29626S?
Asked by: JohnKS
No. There is an ice container in the freezer. We keep it filled for the times that we want / need more ice than what is in the ice maker.

Our new LG refrigerator was delivered with a damaged display cover

You sent a new one but no instructions as to how tochange it. From all appearences it lookds very complicated and probably needs a technician to replace the old one. Any suggestions?
