    Hi, a bit of an odd question...

    I recently got an LG Side by Side fridge freezer and for the first time I've bought a f/f which doesn't have spacers at the back. It also has no brakes for the casters or feet which lower down to keep it in place.

    I need to leave 50mm minimum at the back to allow for ventilation, but I'm not sure what to use to ensure this much space is left. I've got a piece of timber for the time being but the back of the f/f is all metal and I don't want any rot or corrosion to occur so I want to swap that out asap.

    Any ideas? My brightest so far is a couple of walking stick ferrules glued to the wall.. but I'd be happy to hear any better ideas. I'm concerned mainly that the correct space is maintained and that the material will not react with the back of the fridge.

    Thanks

    I guess that would work, but it would probably damage the back of the fridge. Spoke to lg and they said put a rubber mat under the fridge and it won't move. I won't believe it until I see it.
