Built-in Fridge

> Home
Preparing the unit for installation
  • Install the fridge in a dry and ventilated space to ensure maximum cooling performance.
  • The fridge should not be placed in an area exposed to direct sunlight or a source of heat such as a cooker or radiator. If this cannot be avoided, minimise heat transfer by using a suitable insulation plate or keep a distance of 30mm from electric or gas cookers.
  • Ensure the floor surface is even and reinforce it, if required.
Ensuring sufficient ventilation
  • Rear Ventilation: Ensure the air outlet at the back of the refrigerator is at least 200cm² in area.
  • Maintain a gap of at least 50mm between appliances, if they are installed side by side.
  • Spacer for hinge must be aligned on the edge of the cabinet instead of protruding out.
  • Ensure the air ventilation below the refrigerator is at least 200cm² in area.
Installing the unit
  • Take into account the thickness of the door panel, when placing units side by side, to avoid damage when opening the doors(s).
  • During installation, make sure that the installation niche has right angles and has the exact size necessary for the appliances.
  • Make sure the door can be swung open at least 115°, taking into account the door handle. If there are drawers, ensure they are unobstructed and can be pulled out easily.
  • Ensure that there is no wooden panel behind the built-in fridge to allow ventilation.
  • Ensure that there is sufficient space between the fridge and the wall to prevent obstruction to the opening of the door.
  • The powerpoint connection for the fridge should not be behind the fridge as it would prevent easy access to the power switch.
  • Min. distance between 2 built-in fridges should be at 50mm.
  • If two appliances are set up next to each other, a sealing kit side-by-side combination should be used in order to guarantee a stable connection.
  • It is necessary to have a dividing wall!
