IDEAS
,,
Locate the refrigerator in the coolest
part of the room, out of direct
sunlight, and away from heating ducts
or registers. Do not place the
refrigerator next to heat-producing
appliances such as a range, oven, or
dishwasher. If this is not possible, a
section of cabinetry or an added layer
of insulation between the two appliances will help the
refrigerator operate more efficientIy.
