Integrated Fridge Freezer Width issue

    So I've had an Integrated Fridge Freezer for 17 years that is now faulty. The Fridge part is freezing up and not managing to get below about 8 or 9 degrees.

    I need the following

    60/40, fixed hinge & preferably frost free.

    The cabinet that holds it is about 57cm wide. My previous fridge is a 54cm wide. Seems Bosch only make a 60/40 in 55.8cm wide.

    Will it fit? Will the doors close properly? Is there enough ventilation each side of the unit. I used to read 2cm each side.

    Thank you

    Think it’s the rear of the fridge that needs the ventilation, Is the new fridge the same height?

    Yes I think the height is the same.

    Will the cabinet door close properly if it's tight fit?

    They usually have a lot of free play on the plastic clips that connect the fridge doors to the cabinet doors
