What size gap is needed on either side of the fridge?
To get the best performance from your refrigerator there should be space for ventilation on all sides. This will allow for cool air to be drawn towards your fridge, taking away waste heat in the process and helping reduce power consumption. If there isn't adequate space around your fridge you may find that it is running for longer than expected to keep cool.
You can find the model number for your refrigerator in two places:
- on the side wall of the refrigerator's interior
- on the lower left side of the refrigerator's exterior
When installing your refrigerator you should also ensure that the fridge can be pulled out if necessary, there is enough space to fully open the doors and that you can easily remove the shelves and drawers for cleaning.
