How

A
W'
of air
space should
be provided

air circulation.
When

measure
carefully.
Subflooring
or floor coverings
(i,e.
carpet,
tile, wood
floors,
rugs)
may
make
your

smaller
than

Some
clearance
may
be gained
by using
the leveling
procedure
under

to
Level
Your Refrigerator.
How
to

ALWAYS
truck
