    Want to turn home Refrigerator/Freezer turn into stand alone refrigerator, possible?

    Hi,

    Pretty clueless on the subject of refrigeration, understand the basics. Live with and have lived with a lot of people at once for a long time and always the problem seems to be that the fridge and the freezer are to small. My hypothetical/theoretical solution was to turn a regular household fridge/freezer into a stand alone fridge, meaning no freezer or if there must be, then smallest possible. The idea would be to build a new frame or somehow use the existing unit but knock out the space between the two. Just wanting to know if this is even feasible?

    An upright self defrosting freezer and a refrigeration tech that knows what to change would be a good starting point.

    Or you could just buy one of the many all friges that have been on the market for years.

    Common sense isn't very common anymore.

    It is possible.
    You could also use a residential AC condenser unit and a ID coil with a TXV to make your basement into a walk-in cooler, along with a few other nifty parts and pieces.
    But just like your question, possible does not equal feasible nor affordable.

    If you want "just a refrigerator", then buy a used one door display cooler like convenience stores have to sell drinks out of. You'll have a huge refrigerator, with the added benefit of a glass door, so you don't need to stand there with the door open figuring out what you want.

    Anything is possible, but it wouldn't be worth the hassle and probably wouldn't look good after your done if you want to knock out the center.
