FAQ QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Can a freestanding fridge freezer be integrated?
A freestanding fridge freezer won't be able to fit inside a housing cabinet, nor can it have kitchen cabinet doors attached to it – it's just not designed to. However, you can create a 'surround' using kitchen cabinets to help make a freestanding fridge freezer look more built-in and part of a run of cabinets.
What is the difference between built in and freestanding fridge freezer?
Built-in fridges are generally taller than freestanding models, although they are limited to cabinet depth (24”) so they can be installed seamlessly flush with kitchen cabinetry. They come in many different sizes and can be as wide as 48”.
How much space do you need around a fridge freezer?
Side Clearance – Plan for between one-half inch to one-inch of clearance on both sides of the unit. Rear Clearance – Allow between one to two inches of space at the rear of the refrigerator for proper airflow. Top Clearance – Ensure there is a minimum of one-half inch to one-inch of clearance on top of the unit.
How long should a fridge freezer stand before plugging in?
Once your fridge has been safely moved into the kitchen of your new home and is in the desired position, you should let it stand unplugged, in an upright position, for at least 4 hours to allow its compressor oil to settle.
Can you switch on a new fridge freezer straight away?
Let it stand. In transit, your appliance gets shaken around, so it's best to let everything settle before you plug it in. If it was transported upright, give it at least an hour before you plug it in. If it was transported on its side, turn it the right way up and leave it for at least four hours.
How long do you leave a new fridge freezer before putting food in?
When can I put food in my new fridge freezer? You can put food in your new fridge freezer after letting it settle for 4 hours if it was transported on its side or 1 hour if it was transported upright. After this amount of time you're absolutely fine and safe to put your food in your new fridge freezer.
How long should a fridge freezer be turned off before moving?
If you're moving a fridge or freezer into your new home, it's best to turn it off 24 hours before. This gives the fridge's evaporator time to defrost, which reduces the risk of any damage during the move.
