The Fridges With the Longest Lifespan

Most standard refrigerator models will last around thirteen years. For compact refrigerators or mini-fridges, the lifespan is a couple of years shorter. However, it’s important to remember that these are just average estimates. Some specific brands, makes, and models will last longer than others. But if you neglect your refrigerator, or don’t take care of it properly, expect to shave a few years off its life. Here’s a closer look at the fridges with the longest lifespan.


GE French Door Refrigerator

If you have a large family or cook often and need to store large containers of leftovers, the GE French Door fridge is a great choice. It has all the room you need at 36 inches and 27 cubic feet of capacity. Plus, its LED lighting and ample shelving makes it highly convenient and energy-efficient. These fridges are built to last, so you’ll get up to the high end of average with its lifespan.

Samsung Counter-Depth Side by Side

This Samsung model is a great choice if you’re looking for a counter-depth, side-by-side refrigerator. With a 22 cubic foot capacity and stainless-steel finish, it also features temperature-controlled drawers for meat and vegetables, along with gallon bins on the doors. This fridge should last you at least 13 years, with probably a couple of bonus years if you keep up with its necessary maintenance.

LG Side by Side

LG refrigerators are known for their long lifespan and durable components. Their side-by-side model also offers plenty of convenient shelving options and a water dispenser whose filter only needs to be changed twice a year.
