What is the Proper Location and Environment for your Whirlpool Refrigerator
This refrigerator is designed for indoor, household use only. It is intended for use in a location where the temperature ranges from a minimum of 55°F (13°C) to a maximum of 110°F (43°C). Operating the refrigerator outside of the recommended temperature range may result in improper temperatures, temperature fluctuation and/or the refrigerator to not operating at peak performance.
It is recommended that you do not install the refrigerator near an oven, radiator, or other heat source. For best performance, do not install the refrigerator behind a cabinet door or block the base grille.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for a ¹/4" (6.35 mm) space on each side and at the top. When installing your refrigerator next to a fixed wall, leave 2¹⁄2" (6.35 cm) minimum clearance on each side to allow for the door to swing open.
