Find the serial number of the fridge and write it down. The serial number is typically located on a sticker inside the door.
Visit the website of the manufacturer. Some websites have a search that will allow you to find out how old your fridge is. If you cannot find a search by serial number, locate the phone number of the manufacturer and speak to a representative.
Input the serial number in a general appliance website that has a database of refrigerator models and the year they were made (see Resources).
Look in the user manual for your fridge. Some user manuals have a sticker that identifies the model and year of the refrigerator. Check the inside of the front and back covers for this sticker.
- The receipt from your purchase may contain the serial number and even the age of your refrigerator. Keep the receipt on hand if you call the manufacturer.
