Can I fit a 35.75" wide refrigerator into a 36" space?

To me, it's a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, Hey, can you give me a hand? You can say, Sorry, got these sacks.

Based on those measurements



Yes


ETA: Be mindfull of how far you set the fridge in the space, if it is in a space that has walls or cabinets that go out toward the front of the fridge, you might run into problems opening the doors. As long as everything is behind the doors by a couple inches, you should be good just might have to be careful swinging doors open too fast, might slam into something....

Yes but opening the door might be problematic.

Actual fridge dimensions, or the grabassitic and meaningless numbers advertised?

Also check the depth of the fridge vz depth to clear the cabinets.

As noted above, ya gotta have swing clearance on the hinge side.

Will it fit? Probably.

Should you? No. It needs a couple of inches of space around the top & sides for air circulation.

Fit? Yeah, it should, you'll have 1/8" on both side left over.

Good idea? Not really, as space to open the door(s) if you slide it back too far won't exist.
Also, if you slide it too far back, you'll have a hell of a time getting enough leverage to pull
it back out of that space.

These newfangled refrigerator things, they come with this thing called "instructions".

These "instructions" have "information" on the actual 3 dimensional measurements for the refrigerator.

These "instructions" also have "information" that pertains to minimum distances required for safe and efficient operation of the refrigerator.

Maybe maybe not. Insulation puffs out the sides.

Ive got my fridge stuffed in a spot similar to the one you described and it functions fine.

Air flow is not an issue.

If I can fit 12" into 7" of space I'm sure you can fit that in there.

Just watch your fingers and don't hit the sides too bad. 1/8 of an inch on each side is doable but tight.

You need room above the box for hot air to get out. Those coils back there MUST breathe in at the bottom and out at the top. They get hot.

GM, Ford and Chrysler are not car companies that provides good benefits. They are health insurance companies and pension funds that makes cars.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Much like sex, if it seems too big to fit, you just have to shove it in fast.

While your frige is probably square, many structures are not.
