A reasonable gap (at least 9cm or 3.5inches) should be left between the fridge and the wall. This will allow heat exchange between the condenser and compressor and the surrounding air. These components of a fridge need cooling for proper operation.

Vacuum the compressor and condenser whenever dust settles on them. The condenser is the finlike (coil) assembly at the back of the fridge. The condenser is responsible for transferring the heat removed from inside the refrigerator to the surrounding air. You can use a brush if no vacuum cleaner is available.

If the condenser is covered with dust, the dust will act as insulation and reduce the refrigerator’s ability to cool. This will reduce the efficiency of the fridge and overwork it.

If a fridge does not support frost free (automatic defrost) operation you have to manually defrost it whenever frost builds up. Frost accumulation on the evaporator coils block air circulation and interfere with normal refrigeration.

Do not mount a fridge near a window, this will expose it to the elements and lead to rust, damage or electric shock.

Do not mount a fridge near a heat source this will inhibit heat transfer from the fridge to the surrounding air and cause the refrigerator to work harder.

Do not open the fridge except when necessary. Opening and closing the refrigerator will affect cooling performance, overwork the fridge and increase your energy bill.
