Thanks for the model info. I was looking at some 3.2 cu ft models, but if a 4.5 will fit, might as well go for that. Trim work won't be an issue.

The only thing that you really have to watch is the height. If you want to keep your cabinet intact. My opening is 28.75"high and 23" wide.

If you don't care about the cabinet, you can remove it totally and get a maximum height of about 32" and around 29" wide (on our 2720SL). Just use the top of the fridge as your counter space.

If you are still interested in doing this, Best Buy has a 4.5cu ft Frigidaire fridge/freezer on sale for $219.

I hate to admit it but I really screwed up in finalizing the install on my Sanyo fridge but I learned a valuable lesson that others my benefit from.

I made trim moldings to finish off the front of the cabinet and secure the fridge the same way that the original fridge was secured. I simply cut some 3/4' oak to fill the space between the cabinet and the fridge. Then I faced that with 1 1/2" x 3/4" thick molding that screwed into the space on one side and the fridge cabinet on the other. The mistake that I made was screwing the spacer into the side of the fridge with 1" long sheet metal screws. I figured, "what could it hurt, there's nothing but insulation between the sheet metal on the outside of of the fridge and the plastic interior of the fridge with about 3/4" of insulating foam in between". WRONG!!!!! Little did I know, there are refrigerant lines running back & forth in that area and I happened to puncture one and destroyed the fridge.

I spent the whole day installing the new Frigidaire fridge and trimming it out. This time, I used 3M VHB double sided tape to secure the new trim moldings to the fridge. Then screwed the trim moldings to the face of the cabinet. Now I just need to fill the screw holes and stain the wood.
