Our refrigerator just went and I need to buy a new one. However, I have no clue how to figure out the cu ft. that they sell the refrigerators by.
Can anyone help? My current fridge is 3ft wide, 3ft deep, and 6 ft tall. How do I figure out the size of the fridge I need?

@Sandy Toes- When I do that I come up with 54 cu ft, but the refrigerators are all in the 20 range for cubic ft…. so confused lol

I think ours is around 25 and we always fill it (just the two of us). I like to stock up with freezer stuff and hold on to leftovers and feed them to the dog if we don’t need them.

The calculations are based on the INTERNAL capacity and of the refrigerator section alone- NOT including the freezer section.

There should be a label inside that says it on there. We just bought a fridge not too long ago and did that. Also, you don’t necessarily need to buy based on that number, as long as the dimensions fit.
Check out craigslist… you’ll never know what you find. We bought a used stainless steel fridge for $425. No dents or scratches and worked perfectly.

@roxy821: I JUST bought a new fridge on Saturday. What I did was just take the measurements to the store and had the salesperson show me all of the fridges that could fit in the space I had available. They need the height (from floor to top of cabinets), width (from side wall to counter in my case), and depth (space from the back wall to the front of the fridge…including handle). If you have those measurements, you can also narrow down your search some by looking online at models that meet your height, width, and depth requirements.
