Location Requirements

Explosion Hazard
gasoline, away from refrigerator.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for a
1.25 cm space on each side and at the top. Allow for a 5 cm
space behind the refrigerator. If your refrigerator has an ice maker,
allow extra space at the back for the water line connections.
When installing your refrigerator next to a fixed wall, leave a 9.5
cm minimum space between the refrigerator and wall to allow the
door to swing open.
NOTE: This refrigerator is intended for use in a location where
the temperature ranges from a minimum of 10°C to a maximum
of 43°C. The preferred room temperature range for optimum
performance, which reduces electricity usage and provides
superior cooling, is between 15°C and 32°C. It is recommended
that you do not install the refrigerator near a heat source, such as
an oven or radiator.
