How far does a Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator need to be away from the back wall?

Frigidaire recommends leaving a minimum clearance of approximately 2 inches between the back of the refrigerator and the wall. This space allows for proper ventilation and prevents the build-up of heat generated by the refrigerator's cooling system.
However, it's important to note that certain factors may influence the clearance requirements, such as the presence of heat-producing appliances nearby or specific installation configurations. Therefore, it's advisable to refer to the user manual or contact Frigidaire customer support for precise instructions tailored to your refrigerator model.
