General recommendations

Minimum 1-inch clearance

Every Samsung refrigerator, whether built-in or freestanding, should have a minimum of 1 inch of clearance between its back and the wall. This space is essential for proper air circulation and ventilation, preventing overheating and ensuring your fridge works optimally.

Built-in refrigerators may differ

For built-in models, it's essential to check the specific clearance requirements in the installation manual. These can vary depending on the model, so consulting the user manual ensures you meet the right specifications.

Consider extra clearance

While the minimum clearance is 1 inch, Samsung recommends leaving an additional 2-3 inches if possible. This extra space makes it easier to access the back of the refrigerator for cleaning or maintenance, enhancing convenience and ensuring your fridge's longevity.

Maintaining performance and lifespan

Proper clearance isn't just a technicality; it directly impacts your Samsung refrigerator's performance and lifespan. By adhering to these clearance guidelines, you can enjoy efficient cooling and prolong the life of your appliance.
