I am looking to purchase a new fridge but can't compare to my current one because I can't find the size anywhere on it. I have a 15 year old Magic Chef Model # RB171PW Serial # 10138028HB B/M DG21A. Any idea where I can find the info?

The model number usually depicts what size fridge it is. ED 5 ?? That would suggest 5 cubic feet. ?? In Australia, fridges are measured in litre size. IE/ a fridge with say a model of HE550 would suggest 550 litres ( a reasonably big fridge)
33.5 x 19.75 x 20.25 = 13397.9063 cubic inches
then divide that by how many cubic inches in a cubic foot
13397.9063 / 1728 = 7.75341797 cubic feet.
obviously that depends on whether the sizes you have given are the internal or external measuresments and what furniture there is inside the freezer i.e wire racks/shelves but i suspect that this is a chest style freezer.
Alternativly you can look on the data plate which will give you the capacity.
The third number after the period of the model number identifies the cubic feet. such as 106.2142234 your cubic feet would be 14 or 24 from there you should be able to tell if you have a 14 or 24 cubic feet fridge just by looking at how big it is.
I would you recommend you make a burial date for that machine. The best ones out right now are whirlpool, or one of their models like roper etc... just get the standard models. I do not recommend front load models. This goes the same for the Fridge. The better one out is whirlpool, maytag and the other models are having a bad compressor issues... let me know if i can be more assist to you.
