If you don’t like your brand anymore, you can first research on the internet for models and brand, go to trusted sites like Amazon and read reviews of appliances and determine the one that suits your needs. 

3. Consider the Size

Another way is to go round your locality and find garage sales and scour thrift shops or flea market. You can also post through social media, and ask your social circle if they have or they know someone who wants to sell their refrigerators. 

5. Prepare your questions
