What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet Nice looking product, works very well thus far, very quiet! Ice in door has limited capacity and cubes are small and concerned about long term reliability due to design, but time will tell. Overall very please with fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet, perfect fit for counter depth. Good looking, stylish, quiet, performs excellently. I like the ice maker! It does really well for casual use. The shelving is excellent, and adjustable, something other manufacturers think you don't need. Nice wid storage, so getting a turkey in there for thanksgiving will be a breeze. This is good storage for 2 people, might not be enough for a larger family. Can't emphasize enough how quiet it is! We just rarely hear it at all, that's important for open concept floor kitchen isn't walled off from the living room, I didn't want to hear the refrigerator, or dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally no spitting ice onto the floor! Perfect fit. Great ice making capacity. First fridge I have had that delivers ice into the glass and not onto the floor. Great light inside. Great visibility. No more hidden items lost forever

Rated 5 out of 5 by from counter depth french door fridge I love my new LG counter depth fridge. I had the very first one made and it failed very quickly. I swore I would never purchase another but after researching and speaking with many I chose an LG again. I am glad I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! I love my new LG fridge! A normal size refrigerator stuck out way too far in my tiny kitchen and this one fits so much better. It might not be large enough for a family, but for a single or 2 person hone, it is perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 4 Miserable Years with this Fridge! This is year 4 with this refrigerator. All in all the design and layout of the refrigerator is one of the better ones on the market. Since month 3 my refrigerator has been nothing but a problem. This Linear Compressor that is so revolutionary for refrigeration industry has been nothing but noise and problematic. It has been replaced twice. The freezer never seems to stay frozen. The Ice Maker is convenient in its location and offers moderate capacity for a counter depth refrigerator but the fact that if you leave the refrigerator door open for 30 seconds or longer the fan defrosts just enough to then refreeze and turn the unit into a leaf blower. The fix for this problem by the way is to unplug your unit for 3 hours (LG'S recommendation ) then plug it back in hoping your food stays cool and your ice maker works again. Now, last night, 3/22/16, the freezer has gone out again and even though this unit has a history of problems LG will not assist me in any way shape or form. They definitely don't make it easy for consumers to get behind their products when they won't! Its a bummer because LG initially stood behind their product; once it became habitual they no longer would honor the warranty and when I pushed for a new unit they essentially told me to go pound sand. Don't be fooled by how pretty this unit is...especially since the number of available counter depth units is very limited. I WOULD NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER LG REFRIGERATOR AGAIN... Unless you like a constant walk on shells headache.... I would avoid this unit like the plague... If i only had it to do over again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator, terrible Ice Maker We purchased the SS French Door, Counter Depth Refrigerator and loved everything about it except the Ice Maker. The Ice Maker id TOO small for a family and over the last 18 months the ice maker has failed. Worse than just the failure is that it is very difficult to find someone to repair the ice maker.

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?
