What Is Counter-Depth?

LG counter-depth refrigerators align with countertops and cabinetry for a uniform profile, creating a sophisticated built-in look without the high-end price tag.

Most shelf space.*

Ice makers are great, but not if it means you can't fit all of your food in the fridge. The Slim SpacePlus® Ice System provides more shelf space and allows even more space for door bins.

*Standard width french door refrigerator, excludes other LG manufactured products

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old reviews were wrong We purchased our refrigerator 3 days ago and runs quiet, makes ice cubes quickly and if you empty bucket into freezer we always have enough ice cubes. The water doesn’t spray over everything if you hold the glass where you are supposed to. For a counter depth fridge with a little less space it has plenty of usable space. I know we haven’t owned it very long but so far we are very pleased. Dennis Rennie

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Room with a view! My new LG is a standout in my kitchen. It's space efficient design is a great compliment to my other appliances. When I open the doors - WOW! There's plenty of room for all that my family needs PLUS I can see everything through the well-placed and perfect-sized see-through bins. The freezer compartment is well-lit and the sliding freezer drawer is a welcome addition. Its quiet linear motor, user friendly display and smart operation make me confident that my LG refrigerator and I will be working together for a long time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value I bought this 3 week’s ago and like the counter depth refrigerator. Best feature was a shelf that will slide back to accommodate a taller item. The water dispenser takes some getting use to and I have to worn my guest about where the water flow comes out of the refrigerator.

My fridge is in a pretty tight space in my kitchen. If anyone opens the doors open too wide, the handle hits the counter. Is there any way to set the distance the doors can open?

Asked by: Coop1172
I apologize, but no; the refrigerator does not have a method available for limiting the swing of the hinges.

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

WILL THIS FIT INTO A SPACE 39 X 73?
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.
