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.

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;

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.
although manufacturers stated width is 50 cm it is in fact 49.5cm (to fit 50cm) you need to measure the new f/freezer be carefull "all sizes are approximate"
a nominal 50cm should just slide in.....you need to go to your favorite local store and explain in detail, if after your explanation, it doesn't fit you are not legally obliged to pay for it.. take a witness......
and only pay a small deposit.
