The maximum size you get is determined by the space you have available after allowing for side and top ventilation which is critical to the functioning of the Refrig.
Allow at least 2-3 inches either side and 2-3 inches at the top if there are cupboards or shelving over the Refrig location.
measure out the maximum distance in depth you are happy with after allowing an inch or so clearance at the rear so you do not buy a unit that projects to far into the room space.
Then you can check manufacturer sizes and choose a frig brand that fits within that space you have measured out.
The capacity depends on the exact model number. The TBX18TABWW and similar models are 17.6 cu. ft. The refrigerator holds 13.6 cu. ft. and the freezer 4 cu. ft. This model is 64.25" tall, including the hinge, 28" wide, and 31.25" deep.
The GE S series, including TBX18SIBRWW, are 18.2 cubic feet; the specs are 13.04 cu. ft. for the fridge and 5.13 for the freezer. Total height (including the hinge is) 64.75", 29.375" wide and 31.5" deep including the handle. (It takes up 58" with the door open.)
The J series has the same total capacity and dimensions as the S series.
Remember to leave 0.75" free on both sides and 1" at the back and top for air to circulate around the refrigerator.
You can find your exact models specs and manuals here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ . Enter the model number in the search box and click submit. Dimensions are provided in the Quick Specs for most refrigerators. The model number will be on a plaque in any of the following spots: 1) On the ceiling of the freezer near the front 2) By the temperature control 3) On the inside wall of the refrigerator near the crisper drawer on either side 4) Behind the crisper drawer 5) On the bottom front of the refrigerator
as with alot of refrig units the rubger strip has a warming coil that keeps the door from sticking they keep an even warm temp so as opening and closing the door easy there could be a burn spot in the strip and causing the strip tp be warmewr than it should be almost hot should call a fridge expert after you convince your other half there is a prob normally most fridges have a plan magnetic strip to seal the door
Is this a self defrost model? Frost inside the freezer could be an air leak around the door gasket. Remove the back panel in the freezer and completely defrost the coils. Is the fan running in the freezer. That will make the frig not be cool. With the door closed peek in the gasket to make sure the light is shutting off, this will warm a frig also. Eric
I had the same problem. I have the side by side Profile Artica. The problem was a broken damper. It allows the cold air in from the freezer side. With it broken, there was a steady flow of freezer air coming into the frig side. It was easy to fix. I ordered the part (damper/fan assemble) for around $100. While searching for a solution, it seems that this is a common problem. Unfortunately, I received a wide range of incorrect solutions to the problem which could have cost me a lot of money. I hope this helps!
