What type of apartment do you live in ? If its a free market building then you and the landlord can negotiate. Assuming you are on good terms with the landlord, bring up that you want the fridge replaced with a frost free model. You could offer to renew your lease if he does so.

If you are rent stabilized, your options are more limited. The landlord is required to supply you with a working refrigerator but not a spiffy, frost-free modern one. You can request that he replace yours. He can pass along 1/40 of its cost to you as a monthly rent increase. Otherwise he is required to replace the fridge only if it breaks, and even then could replace it with a used model.

: I want a good used working frost free refrigerator, or at least one manufactered after 1980. How can I get my landlord to replace the substandard, broken one that I now have without cost to myself? How do I know if its leaking freon? Thanks.
