How Close Can A Fridge Be To An Oven?

Given that a fridge is used to store cold products, and an oven generally emits heat, you’re likely to be concerned about how these two appliances interact in close proximity to one another.

A fridge should be at least 20 inches away from an oven with a gas stove.

Things to consider when placing your fridge and oven in your kitchen

Having an oven right next to a fridge can cause the fridge to heat up, making the fridge work harder to stay cool. This can consume more energy and potentially shorten the fridge’s lifespan.

When your fridge and oven were manufactured

Kitchens can often be a cramped space, especially when there’s more than one person busy in the kitchen.
