I just got this fridge today. The depth of the floor is 10-1/4 inches. You would definitely have to remove the door panel because there is a bottom projection that sticks into the fridge about 2 inches. This panel is held in with adhesive, not screws.
I have a BB 5-gallon carboy that is full of cider, so measuring the diameter is tough. I'm guesstimating that it is about 10" in diameter. As for inside height of the fridge, conservatively you have 26-1/2" before you hit the light, but the light is not dead center over this floor footprint, so you may actually have 27" of usable space. My BB with a 2-part airlock is about 22" tall. I suppose in a pinch you could use a silicone airlock/vented stopper, if you're not doing so already.
