counter depth refrigerator door swing calculation
We just bought a house that has a very high end LG fridge that sticks out about 10" from the counter!! :-(
The ACTUAL counter edge to wall measurement is only 25".
So we're shopping around for a true counter depth model to replace the incorrect one they left behind.
What I can't comprehend is "door swing". We want the door to be able to open all the way and lay flat to the counter - not bump into the counter and only partially open.
The full size spec sheet of a GE model we think may work is linked below
BUT - we have no clue how the hinges work - how door swing works.
What SHOULD we be looking for - and does it vary from manufacturer to manufacturer? From my limited searches (UNDER $2000) this GE model is the shallowest depth available on the market - which I think is what we need due to the above mentioned 25".
The attached DEPTH (LESS DOOR) spec of 23-7/8 has me a bit concerned and confused too... :-/ But also there has to be a bit of clearance behind so maybe this one is OK???
If we got this exact one - would it hit the counter when we opened it????? :-(
Here is a link that might be useful: GE 22.7 cu ft Side-by-Side Counter-Depth Refrigerator Model #: GSCS3PGXSS
