Positioning your appliance
Choosing the right location
This appliance should be installed in a room that is dry and well ventilated. To provide adequate ventilation, make sure the refrigerator is at least 20mm clear on all sides from kitchen cabinetry, and 30mm from the back wall.

If locating the refrigerator close to a corner, sufficient spacing must be left for opening the doors and removing the shelves.
This appliance should be at least 100mm from any electric or gas cooker. If this is not possible, make sure that appropriate insulation is used (eg insulated wall).
Avoid exposing the appliance to direct sunlight, and sources of heat (such as radiators, heaters or cookers).
Locating this appliance in a cold environment (such as a shed, outhouse or garage) may compromise its performance. A consistent room temperature of 10°C or above is recommended to ensure optimum performance and food care.
