Video - Residential refrigerator install

Here is a video of my installation.
https://youtu.be/4Swdinv6hsc

I bought a GE model number GIE18GSHNRSS
I did have to trim the top of the cabinet front by about 2 inches
The new fridge without the doors and handles was bout 24 inches, Coach door was 29 inches, did have to remove the passenger seat, not hard.
The easiest part was the inverter wiring modification
Essentially the trim is like a picture frame with cut outs for the bottom brackets and door hinges.
A good trim job makes the thing look great and also isolates the interior air space from the rear of the Fridge.
The rear and side remain vented through the existing outside side vent and roof vent.

You're lucky that the bottom front of your fridge is not an intake or exhaust for the fan. My GE fridge is both an intake and exhaust on the bottom...it has a divider that is attached to the bottom that meets the floor and creates the intake and exhaust air flow paths. So I couldn't trim mine out on the bottom and vent the air outside. So I do get a little bit of warm air into the kitchen from the fridge.

A lot of models are vented on the bottom in the front, an advantage to that is zero clearance in the back. If you have that model then you can seal up all the vents. One draw back is they need to be cleaned more often as dust will clog them up and the refer will not cool.
