Firstly, you do not mention the unit of measurement but that isn't the issue here as cubic footage can vary between manufacturers and models so nobody can give you a definitive answer.
basically, look at the dimensions of the one you're interested in, if it's within the figures you've got then it fits.

SOURCE: My bottom refrigerator is not cold. The freezer is okay.

I'm a maintenance man with the city housing.I have the same problem with magic chef refrigerators of not getting cold on bottom.I found out sometimes when drain in freezer box gets block when it defrost the water builds up then freeze up blocking the vent hole stopping the cold air from reaching the bottom compartment.Solution Turn off refrigerator drop the thermostat housing in bottom compartment and clean drain.Then remove rear freezer wall disconnected fan than manually melt ice build up in freezer coils and bottom vent hole with hot water boil it in a small pot for quicker melting time..Pour on coils until ice melts.make sure you put a pot inside bottom compartment to catch water when you melting the ice on coils and vent hole.When ice is melted.Turn back on the refrigerator hook back fan.And test coil heater manaully turn heater timer and see if the heater comes on.If it's ok start putting everything back together.Set your thermostat.Note this want I do when I'm in a tenant apartment on a repair.If you got time and just leave the both refrigerator door and let room temperature melt the ice.Which can take hour's.

New Refrigerator Size or Refrigerator Cubic Feet


When you have a good idea about what type or style of refrigerator you want, then you can get to deciding on what refrigerator size will be the best refrigerator for you. The refrigerator best suited to meet you needs is the one that fits your kitchen and also gives you enough space for storage with out wasting energy on cooling unused space.

If you buy a new refrigerator that is too large you will drive the cost of the initial purchase up and also have the added expense of cooling more space then you need to cool. Average recommendations call for about a 14 cu ft refrigerator for a family of four.
If you have a large family then a refrigerator of up to 25 cu ft may be better. The refrigerator cubic feet or refrigerator cu ft is the size of the inside of the box or space available for storage. Keep in mind that refrigerators that are over 25 cu ft will tend to cost much more to operate.

To figure out the size of your existing refrigerator for comparison, you can measure the inside of your refrigerator. To get the refrigerator sizes, measure the height, the depth, and the width of the inside of your refrigerator box. So if you have a refrigerator that measures 30 inches wide by 30 inches deep by 48 inches high, you multiply 30 X 30 X 48. This gives you 43200. You then divide 43200 by 1728 to get cubic feet. In this case we get 25 which would be a rather large fridge size. Many refrigerators are not an exact rectangular box, but you can get a close enough size to estimate the approximate size of your refrigerator.

Refrigerator sizes can vary greatly and you need to carefully decide on what cubic feet refrigerator will best meet your everyday needs. Refrigerators size and refrigerator depth are probably the most critical decisions that come up when buying a new refrigerator.

What to Look For in a Refrigerator

Buying a refrigerator is an issue that is too complicated to many types of refrigerators that are available today. The function of refrigerator has actually gone beyond the basic of keeping food cooled and chilled. There are features that are equipped in most advanced refrigerators now. Therefore, choosing the right one that suits your family will take some time and require some basic knowledge on refrigerators. Here are a couple of things that you need to look out when buying a refrigerator.
The first thing that you need to decide is the capacity when it comes to buying a refrigerator. The rule of thumb here is to go with the general guideline where a family of two needs at least 10 cubic feet of fresh foot storage. You can add extra cubic feet for additional person in your family. Therefore, an 18-cubic-foot refrigerator is the smallest unit that you should get for a couple. A family of four needs at least a 22-cubic-foot refrigerator. Of course, if you can afford bigger refrigerator, the better it is. But be reminded that it takes more electricity to operate a bigger refrigerator which leads to higher electricity bill.
Adding to the capacity, the size of the refrigerator is also important. The size can sometimes be a limiting factor in determining the refrigerator that you want to buy. In a case of a family that needs a 22-cubic-foot refrigerator but the space in your kitchen can only accommodate an 18-cubic-foot unit. If that is the case, you should probably make some space by removing certain items in the kitchen to fit the 22-cubit-foot refrigerator. Or else you can consider a side by side refrigerator if space is a concern. A side by side refrigerator consists of a freezer that is adjacent to the refrigerator. The advantage of side by side refrigerator is that it needs less door clearance which makes it ideal for a narrow kitchen.
Other factor to consider when buying a refrigerator is to select the type that suits your living style. There are several types of popular refrigerators in the market ranging from the commonly used top freezer, bottom freezer, side by side to the exotic French door unit. The top freezer is the most commonly seen refrigerator due to its affordability and simple design. Besides, the top freezer is also the one that has the least problem. Therefore, reliability issue seldom exists in top freezer refrigerator.
The bottom freezer model is equally comparable to top freezer but it's slightly more expensive. The advantage of bottom freezer lies in the convenience where more frequently used storages are placed at eye level. It's claimed that people with back pain problem should use the bottom freezer refrigerator to alleviate the back pain since you don't have to bend to access the food in the refrigerator.However, people will sometimes accommodate a side by side refrigerator in their kitchen. One of the reasons behind it is that, these refrigerators are often equipped with plenty of extra sophisticated features that offer loads of conveniences to its users. Other reason might be due to the exotic look of these types of refrigerators instead of the normal top and bottom freezer units.
Note, if you planned to get a refrigerator that is more than 22 cubic feet in capacity, consider one which is Energy Star qualified. An Energy Star qualified refrigerator means energy efficiency. An energy efficient refrigerator is very conservative in terms of electricity usage and it might help you to save some utility cost. One thing for sure is that you might be able to get rebates of up to a few hundred dollars for trading in your old refrigerator with a new Energy Star qualified model. A lot of utilities companies and even the local government do offer this kind of rebates. Therefore, do enquire the sales persons when you are in the stores.
All in all, buying a refrigerator is not that of a difficult task. All you need is some practice and some basic knowledge in refrigerator. Please whenever you really want to buy a refrigerator , make sure that you have done some research on the model that you are looking for ,the things that you want to look out and the cost of purchasing and the features so that when you are at the store, you will really go for your choice from your re-search.

How do I calculate cubic feet of refrigerator


Normally refrigerators have stickers inside that state the cubic feet. If that's missing you must measure the width X depth X height to get cubic feet. WxDxH= cubic feet.

What is the cu ft of Model FRT21IL4FW3 Freezer space?


Easiest solution is to measure the inside dimensions in inches, tall, width and depth. Then multiply the three dimensions t x w x d = cubic inches. To get cubic feet then divide the above answer by 1728 and the result is cubic feet..

For instance if the fridge is 60 inches tall x 24 inches wide x 18 inches deep; the answer is 60 x 24 x 18 = 25,929 cubic inches... 25,920 divided by 1728 = 15 cubic feet.

Cubic feet calculator


That would depend on the depth. A refrigerator that's 60 inches high by 30 inches wide by 1 inch deep would be just over one cubic foot. A refrigerator that's 60 inches high by 30 inches wide by 30 inches deep would be 31.25 cubic feet.

What is the cubic feet measurement for a GE Model TBX18 refrigerator? Also, what is its width and height?


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

I hope this helps.

How msny cubic ft. is my 106.9750610 Kenmore refrigerator?


I tried downloading a manual for your Kenmore Top-mount refrigerator-freezer but it is no-longer available. the next best way is to measure the inside dimensions of your refrigerator. Measure the depth, height and width in inches. Times them together and divide by 1728.

example: if your inside of your refigerator is 30 inches wide by 20 inched deep by 50 inches tall you get 30 x 50 x 20 = 30000 cuin / 1728 = 17.36 cuft. Do the freezer section seperate to know thier individual measurements and add them together to get the total. I hope this helps. - subdriver
