You will have a problem. However the delivery men know a trick. I used to deliver em before I learned how to fix em. You mess around and have to fish any hoses out the door that might end up costing a service call because it is not covered in the warranty. It is best to let the guys go ahead and set it up for you. If you had a coupla strong guys who knew how to work a dolly then you could get the ice box in the door without taking the doors off. What you do is open the doors and begin by easing a door in firs being careful not to knock the door off the hinges then ease the ice box into the door and swing it to the side to get the other door in. It can be done but if you are not careful you could mess up the door. Best to let the guys who deliver it install the ice box. They should connect the water and level the icebox before leaving. Yeah it costs a few dollars more but these new machines are expensive and have delicate electronics. Banging them around, taking wires loose, loosing hoses inside the door, losing harness inside the door ain't good. Been there Done that.

Need to replace water line inside freezer door.

Water lines inside doors are typically not serviceable as the insulation is "foam in place". Pulling apart the door and reassembling will be next to impossible. Generally the door would need to be replaced.

Hi I have an LG- LFX23961SW The water hose that goes from water valve to ice maker keeps freezing up so no water goes to ice maker. We first thought the problem was the water valve, but discovered the...

Water is delivered to the ice maker mold bymeans of a "tube-within-a-tube" design. A conduit system consisting of three separate pieces(liner fitting, conduit, back panel fitting) isfoamed into place in the cabinet.This conduit provides a pathway from thefreezer liner to the back panel. The majority ofthis system is routed above the refrigerator linerto prevent the water tubing from freezing. Thetubing that delivers the water is routed throughthe conduit, and is secured by snapping into place at the freezer liner fitting.
And also check freezer temp and defrost system is working.I hope repairman would replace the insulation of tube by taking door as you said. Thanks.

My side by side refri w/ice and water in door makes ice but cant ice from tray to door

Mine just started doing the same. I purchased this one on Nov 08, 2008. If I take all the ice out of the tray I can see the auger turn and if I put back just a few cubes the system delivers ice thru the door. But, put too many cubes in and the auger won't turn. Piece of junk - out of warranty and and now I pay more to get the buggar fixed. I need to try another company next time.

Refrigerator won't fit thru door.

I ran into the same problem when I moved into my old house. the door way was to small, so I had to take both doors off the refrigerator to get it through the doorway. But I found out when I moved out of the house, that I was able to open both doors and wiggle it through the doorway. It was a hassle but it was alot easier that removing the doors. Good luck.
