I have a 2003 Camelot with 2 furnaces. I am looking to lower furnace under fridge 1-2 inches onto floor to gain more clearance for my residential fridge install. From what I can see, it's mounted on wooden blocks. If this is do able, I can get a product like dynamat to insulate the floor against heat. I don't know if this will affect the outside cover until I can get in there and do it. Anyone ever attempt this??

Might want to check the manual for the furnace - I think there is a minimum space for cold air return

We recently installed a Samsung 197. didn't have height needed. Furnace was installed on 2 blocks. We removed the blocks and lowered the furnace. For safety we put a piece of steel under and on top of furnace. Before installing wood floor over the furnace we ran the furnace and measured the temperature over and under the furnace. NO Problem. We were afraid that by lowering the furnace we would have problem with exterior where furnace is mounted. We didn't. We considered removing the furnace completely. Because we got things to fit we didn't. However if we ever need the Samsung serviced we will rove the furnace. We rarely boondock, and we have heat strips in both of our air conditioners. And we found that supplementing the furnace with portable electric heaters gives us more even and comfortable heating. safe travels.... ed

Once I get everything out and have room to work, I will look into that. From what I can see, the furnace is rigid to the outside vent so I don't see where there is going to be any play for movement without any gaps or breaking something. I ended up going with a Fisher Paykel fridge that is shorter than the Samsung by a few inches. Width and depth are very close if not the same.
