Question about Kenmore 64823 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Find a refrigerator that fits

Mom & Dad (in their eighties) need a refrigerator with dimensions below to fit the space available in their kitchen.

Width 29 7/8" to 32 3/4"
Depth 25" w/o doors (29 1/4" with handle)
Height 66 1/4" including hinge (68 7/8" will fit)

I am searching the internet but so far the few I have found are stainless steel which really wouldn't work in their kitchen. Any suggestions would be welcome! (We are already considering tearing out the wall that backs the refrigerator into the hallway, but. . .) Bottom freezer preferred. Thank you.

    Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, depth is the big problem. The depth of the current refrigerator without the door is 25" and the depth with the handle is 29 1/4". Without the door the refrigerator fits flush with the wall and the doors extend out past that so they can be opened. My dad is thinking about cutting into the wall behind the refrigerator into the hallway to fit a deeper refrigerator, which we'd really like to avoid. Thanks for the suggestions- Dad is heading out to Lowe's today to see if they can help at the store.

    Also, it turns out that stainless steel is actually a good option. But, if possible, double doors over bottom freezer. I think stainless increases the possible choices.

    This one looks good! M & D are in Ohio. I am trying to help long distance. Do you know of any dealers in the mid-west? (NW corner of Ohio)

  • pamelamacker Jun 23, 2009

    Thank you! We are working on it. Dad is checking out a dealer close by their home and will let me know what he finds out. At least we won't be tearing down walls.

    I did not solve the problem but request that the question be placed under the general topic of "Find a Refrigerator That Fits" but NOT under the sub-topic "Kenmore 64823 Top Freezer Refrigerator Problem." I am sure I entered my question incorrectly as this is the first time I have attempted to use your website. Thanks for the assistance!

I did find a stainless one but not sure what dealers you may have in your area. You don't say where you are.

Anyway here is one that is 28 3/4 deep.

    Here is the Fisher-Paykel locator:

    Enter your zipcode. I noticed they do have dealers in/near Toledo, but don't know how close you are to there.

The cubic ft capacity spec on a fridge is measured inside, and varies depending on its design, especially on whether it has an ice maker, although those measurements you give seem to be for a bar fridge or similar.

Your measurements come to 20.3 cu ft on the outside, but remember that is not relevant, you have to measure the dimensions to make sure it fits.

What is the width of Kenmore 253.57188600 refrigerator?

Hello Chris;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
First, The 253 model is an LG. Stay away from LG and Samsung refrigerators. 70% of my service calls were for either LG or Samsung. A common problem; LG would have compressor overload failures caused by the compressor. I would have to change both the overload and the compressor. This was a $650 - $900.00 repair. The Samsung has the best looking unit on the market, with the highest component failure rate. Their televisions are great, but appliances!
Ok, your dimensions.
1.) You need to take a tape measure and measure the space. You need 3/4" on the top and sides for proper air flow. You also require 2-1/2" in the back. Take this information to where you purchase a new unit.
2.) Consider going to a Sears Outlet Store (Scratch & Dent). You save a couple hundred dollars and have a one year warrantee.
3.) Consider a Habit Store for a used appliance.
Ok, What brand do I buy:
1.) If you can afford it: Kitchen Aid, Amanda or Hot Point (Fewest service calls).
2.) GE, Kenmore (Model number 110.---).
I hope I have helped;

Need refrigerator to fit in space 35" X 67". That is total space. I imagine I need some air circulation at the top.

I would think that you would need at least 1" either side and 2" at the top. The manufacturers normally recommend 2" at sides and 4" at top.

Home Depot lists a depth dimension for a GE refrigerator. Is the handle included in the depth dimension?

no. depth is measured from the back of the box to the front of the box but does not include the handles. The depth of the cabinet is used to determine if the doors will open sufficiently to clear countertops and half walls or appliances. Also helps determine if enough space will be available to open doors in small kitchens such as "c" shape, "L" shape or narrow galley kitchens. for small kitchens, the best frig is a side by side. The doors are smaller and less swing space is needed. A 25 cubic foot side by side uses less swing space then a 15 cubic foot single door. If you are worried about depth, you can also get a counter depth frig which will stick out past your countertops by about 2 inches rather then 8-10 inches with a standard frig. standard depth is about 28-36 inches from the back wall when plugged in. Handles get in the way most often in width measurements because they prevent the doors from swinging past 90 degrees if located next to a wall.
