    Custom fridge slides

    Built a two way sliding platform to mount the fridge. Since there is only 3 of us, the position of the fridge works well. The slides are 2 way so the fridge is easy to move out the way for access to the cupboard in the kitchen pod. I don’t like having the fridge in the boot area, especially...

    Lining behind fridge

    Can anybody suggest what to do behind my fridge and kitchen. Will the fridge get hot enough to melt carpeted ply? Instead of insulating the cavity and ply lining could I insulate with an adhesive foam and leave the ply off so I could maybe nudge the fridge back a few cm’s?

    Hi all, Getting a little confused on fusing size for a fridge. Instructions say use a 15A fuse but I understood that fridges can use higher amps on start up, which is why I have 6mm cable. Also seen another document for the same fridge saying use a 10A fuse. Can I ask what size fuses you use...
