    Hi,
    I bought my new build house two years ago.
    It came with a cheap Zanussi fridge. But it is just too small to fit the food in. Several times, I have come down in the morning and the door has popped open.

    Have been looking at replacement fridges, preferably with a water dispenser and I am finding the majority are 66.5cms deep.
    My current one is 169 high, 55.8 wide and 61.3 deep.

    The ones I am looking at are
    185 high, 59.5 wide and 66.8 deep.

    I have done some measurements, and it looks as though the replacement ones would stick out quite a bit.
    Does anyone think this would be a problem? I am struggling to find a fridge which has slightly more capacity which isn't bigger in size.

    It would fit in this space, but it would sit proud of the pantry unit and the door would knock on it if opened fully. I am finding same with washing machine. The kitchen units seem quite short and appliances are all less deep than usual.

    Any advice would be great.

    I'm confused.
    Standard depth is 60cm, which is what your cabinets appear to be if your current fridge is 61cm.
    Your tape measure is either not at the back wall or you're not using it correctly, as that shows 51cm.
    (I had a quick look on the Currys site and there were plenty of refrigerators on there to suit your requirements of 61cm depth, and even less.)

    Thanks for your post. Have double checked and from the wall, the cabinet is 59. That includes the door.
    As you say, there are lots of fridges which have a good depth, but they don’t tend to have a water dispenser.
    The one I am interested in has these dimensions..
    H185 x W59.5 x D66.8cm
    But then in the manual, the measurements are slightly different..

    This is the model. I have managed to get a good price match on it so can get it for a bargain. But don’t want to waste time and money if it will be too tight.

    I have 66.5cms of width available and a wall and then kitchen door to left hand side (this is a small kitchen).
