LG Refrigerator Bowed out on sides
« on: July 29, 2010, 12:40:48 PM »
My LG LRSC26925TT side by side stainless refrigerator/freezer is about 3 1/2 years old and works fine.  I just had new kitchen cabinets installed and there is now a dedicated spot for the refrigerator.  The spec sheet states the unit is 35 3/4" wide, which it is at the top and bottom.  The sides are over 36" wide and the unit does not fit in the opening.  LG "Customer Support" has provided their usual useless level of support.  The interior and exterior of the unit are undamaged.  Anyone have similar problems?

I have seen that alot. Most manufacturer's use an expanding foam fill inside the frame and doors. I've seen some that are wavy or even sunk in. Not much you can do for that. Maybe force it in although it will dent the sides.

I see this a lot too.

How big is the opening?

I see so many new houses that make the opening for the refrigerator the same size as the refrigerator itself.

For example if the specs on the refrigerator say 35 3/4" they will make the opening 35 3/4" and then wonder why it does not fit worth a darn.

Or better yet they will put the refrigerator in the corner of the kitchen and the wall next to the refrigerator will extend past the front of the refrigerator interfering with the opening of the door.

But I have seen refrigerators that fit fine when I installed them in new houses and years later when I need to pull them out to do repairs they were a tight fit.
