I've got a cheapo FLIR camera that I'd use to find cold spots if there's a good way to insulate it.
Me too. It didn't have any bad spots out of normal. But my mini fridge sure did lmao.
Coil is clean so thats already not a factor. Breathing room wise i shoud be good the cabinet opening is for a premium fridge and this is a lot smaller than that lol.
The owners manual recommends 1/2" at the top and 2" on the sides and it says 2" on the back side IF the door opening is a factor. lol
I'll have to go measure all around what i have. It looks like i have like 4" on both sides and like 6" up top.
