I wondered if you could advise me. We would like to place a small 3 litre fridge in an under the counter cupboard. The cupboard will have to remain closed but it has a ventilation panel fitted into the door. Please could I check whether this abides by the UK fire regulations?

All the best,

I am not aware of any fire regulations that would prevent you doing this however the ventilation of fridges are very important for many reasons. You should follow the manufacturer's installation instructions on ventilation because if the condensation coils overheat then the motor will run more than required,using more electricity and increasing the chance of fire. Low and high ventilation is the most effective bringing cold air at the low level and expelling the hot air at the high level.
