Hello BenS,
Please contact Home Depot at (800) 455-3869 for quick answers about their Free Delivery and Haul Away Services.
If you intend to make Ice cubes the old fashioned way by placing water in an ice tray, I assume you are going to place the ice tray in the bottom freezer?
There shouldn't be any problem with that other than not tipping the ice tray over before the water freezes!...IFV

In some models of the 30 in. Wide 19.7 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator, Model # LFC20770ST, the durabase divider can be adjusted and moved one way or the other, but the owner's manual does not mention whether or not it is removable.
Then in some models, the durabase itself can be removed, and these models do not have a divider in them.
As for the dimensions of the durabase, regrettably, I do not have access to the dimensions and requested measurements and would advice that you contact LG Electronics Customer Information Center (800) 243-0000 and see if they can provide you the requested specifications for the durabase from an exploded view diagram of the unit...IFV

Hello Cloe,
The functioning of the Ice Maker is not dependent on the filter so you should be able to bypass it in the 30 in. Wide 19.7 cu. ft French Door Refrigerator, Model # LFC20770ST. The question then is whether or not you will need some type of adapter for that. If I may, my suggestions would be for you to contact LG Customer Information Center (800) 243-0000 and speak to a Representative there about that...IFV

Hello BenS
The intent of connecting this unit up to a water line is for the icemaker, so if you are not looking to use the icemaker then there is no requirement for you to connect to one. Think of it this way, if this refrigerator did not have an icemaker in it, would it still function?
Just make sure you turn the icemaker off if you are not going to be using it!...IFV

Hello Cloe,
I do not believe you would need any special part to bypass the filter. You would just need to ensure that you can get the water to where you want it to exit. Please contact Customer Information Center (800) 243-0000 for technical advise on this unit...IFV

Hello Dave and thank you for your question.

The required installation clearance for the sides of the LG Electronics 19.7 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator is 1/8 inch. The width with the door open 90° (with handles) is 32-3/8 inches. You will need a minimum of 32-5/8 inches opening (32-3/8 + 1/8 + 1/8). You should have a close fit inside your 33 inch opening. Check that the opening is 33 inches at the top, middle, and bottom of this space for best fit.

The required installation clearance for the back of the LG Electronics 19.7 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator is 1 inch and the depth with handles is 33-3/8 inches; this is 43-3/8 inches. Your refrigerator should extend 16-7/8 inches beyond the countertop (43-3/8 – 26-1/2).

Other dimensions can be found on the specification sheet located here: http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pd....

Best wishes on your project.
