Is there a true counter depth fridge with reasonable width out there?

Too tiny! Too tall! Too deep! Is there a Goldilocks fridge out there that is just right? I need a counter-depth fridge (with freezer, top or bottom) that really is counter depth -- 24-25 inches at the most with door and handle -- without being more than 32 inches wide. Many so-called "counter-depth" fridges I've seen are 29-30 inches deep once the door and handles are included, and even when I find one the right depth, it's very wide, typically 35-36 inches. The best match I've found so far is the LG 349, but it's a full six inches narrower than my current (awkward, too deep) fridge, and the slightly larger version I've seen at a store still seems toy-sized and flimsy inside, while being a little too tall for me at 74 inches. I'm in Canada (Toronto, to be precise).

Unplugging my refrigerator for 24 hours fixed it. Will the fix last?

My side by side refrigerator/freezer stopped cooling, so we unplugged it and went to buy a new one. On a lark I plugged it back in 24 hours later, and now it functions perfectly. Anyone know if the problem is likely to return (or what the problem might be?) I vacuumed the back-bottom compartment where the compressor is located, but there wasn't much dust there so I doubt dust was the problem.

Should I buy this refrigerator?

Our heirloom (hah!) refrigerator is dying. I'm thinking of purchasing an Electrolux ICON Professional 16.5 cu. ft. refrigerator, with plans to buy the matching freezer later (I have an upright freezer already that will suffice for the time being). Does anyone have any experience with this product? Something similar you think might be better or might want to warn me away from? My biggest concerns are for quality of construction and reliability, but I'd love to hear any/all thoughts you might have about this appliance. Thanks!

Fridge cooling woes

We just moved into a new apartment, and our cat promptly decided to hide behind the fridge (~20 year old Inglis System 2000, freezer on top). When we pulled it out from the wall to get her out, we decided to give the back a vacuum. I'm not sure when or how the condenser coils popped out like this but now they won't lie flush with the back again. I'm assuming this is why our freezer is no longer freezing and our food has thawed (as we just moved in, we had nothing in the fridge). Any ideas? Thanks in advance?

Refrigerator Shelf Life of Bread (Until It Becomes Unhealthy)?

How long can one keep bread in the fridge? (If it matters, usually a Brownberry multigrain loaf.) StillTasty tells me merely that it's not recommended, but doesn't offer a date.

how to mount plexiglas on stainless steel fridge?

I have a stainless steel fridge and a toddler who is learning to walk. I want to mount a sheet of plexiglas over the bottom portion of the door to prevent it from getting dented. I would like this to look decent and be non-permanent so I can remove it when we eventually move. Any ideas on how I could do this? All I can think of is using some kind of tape, but I think that would sag after a while. Bonus for suggestions on how to also stick stuff to the plexiglas so that I can post up my kid's artwork (the stainless steel is non-magnetic).

Can I still eat the ham?

Can I eat ham that wasn't properly refrigerated? I got a fully cooked ham from my employer, put it out in my car trunk during the day, and forgot about it when I got home. Over the next few days, I didn't remember it at all. The whole time it was refrigerator temperature outside, and the trunk of my car was probably the same temperature. All that changed when I had a freak 60 degree day on Friday, and then it was back to being 20 outside. I remembered the ham last night as I was putting something else in my trunk. Did that 60 degree day ruin my chance of eating the ham?

Bakingfilter: Fridge to oven? A-OK or madness?

Bakingfilter: Fridge to oven? No problemo or madness? I want to bake a cake tonight (a pflaumenkuchen) that's been sitting in the fridge all day. Do I need to let it warm up to room temp before I bake it (recipe says 350 F for 40-45 min) or can it go straight from the fridge into the oven? It's in a metal pan, so I'm not worried about anything breaking. Burning the cake would be a sad thing, however.

My fridge is failing to cool my food.

The side-by-side fridge in our rental (a GE tfx22zrs, tfx22jrs) has been failing to keep the refrigerator side cool (freezer side works fine). I think I have traced this down to some kind of lightbulb short -- the bulb heats up so much, so fast, I presume it is keeping the food from getting cool; possible fuse problem? Do fridges have user-serviceable fuses? Or is this a compressor problem and the lightbulb a red herring? [more inside]
