How much clearance should your Samsung refrigerator have in the back?
- All Samsung refrigerators require a minimum clearance of 2 inches (or 5 cm) behind the unit.
- When it comes to clearance around the fridge, we recommend half an inch (or 1,27 cm) but more clearance is better than less. If air does not circulate enough, the condenser will overheat, and the refrigerator will not cool properly.
- If you need to know the width, depth and height of a Samsung refrigerator, you can use our download center to find a PDF version of the user manual. Dimensions are usually specified in the “Installation” part of the manual.
