Should this be there Carriage Cameo 37CKSLS

Should this be there Carriage Cameo 37CKSLS(see picture)
I was adding a fire extinguisher to the top of frig area.
I had it on last unit. Looking in there is this paneling wood
and only about 3 inches at top you can see the coils.
It is only attached at bottom
by board and/or bottom of door to get into there. Look at
picture. I donít think it should be there. I have a four door frig.
I was wondering if I could cut it out seems to block air flow!

I didn't see a photo that looked to be what you are describing, but you mentioned it is bolted in, I'd remove it to see if it appears to be needed. Maybe drill some large diameter holes to ad air flow if it can't be removed. Good luck.

Not sure from your discription, but many times there is a baffle installed, to direct the air flow towards the coils, forms kind of a funnel/vortex. Fairly common for them to use scrap wood to do this, probably not the best choice of material considering the heat.

That is a baffle to keep air flow over the coils all the way to the top, probably there as a result of fridge makes spec's for installation that close to the top of a slide.
Like I said , poor choice of material , considering the fire risk.
If you need to remove it for installation of the fire extinguisher, replace with non-flamable material.
P.S. I've sent a few photos into cyber space myself.

Looks like the frig installation in our 2008 Cameo. I fixed the fire problem and a No-Cold frig by installing an Amish cooling unit. It works much better than the No-cold.

Probably they end up with all the lost socks.
