Measuring New Refrigerator

I would like to know the proper way to measure the new refrigerator to go through the doors and angles and turns for delivery to installation spot.
Kind Regards,
Rick Davidson

Hey RAD26.

The standard exterior door is 36 inches wide, therefore any refrigerator that Home Depot sells is designed to fit through a standard 36 inch door. Depending on a doors ability to swing all the way open, sometimes a doors hinge pins need to be pulled in order to fit in a house. Sometimes a refrigerators door handles have to be removed in order to fit. If your door is the standard 36 inches wide then there should be no problem getting it inside.

If your door is less than 36 inches then I would recommend measuring the refrigerator you want before buying it.

Hi RAD26,

All new refrigerators are designed to fit in a space 36 inches wide by 70 inch high. In addition the handles on a new refrigerator are shipped inside the unit and are installed after the refrigerator is in place in the kitchen.

If you have selected a specific model refrigerator, go to that product page on Home, there you will find the refrigerators dimensions with and without the handles. Typically the dimension without the handles is 2-3 inches less than with the handles, this usually makes the difference when moving a refrigerator into your home. 

As Ingar mentioned above you also have the option of removing the front door and if necessary the doors of the refrigerator to get the new unit inside.
