I am considering purchasing a new fridge & cook stove. How close together can I place them?

You'd have to check the specs on the exact range you're looking at but for most residential ranges (we're not talking the semi-professional stuff like Viking and Wolf) the clearance is zero.

Hi Philip,

 

The issue with placement isn't just the proper spacing for proper cooling, its ergonomic considerations.

 

If you have the frig directly next to the stove, then space needed to make full use of the stove will be limited. Pot handles cannot be turned toward the side and access to the rear burners will be limited.

 

Also you will be cleaning cooking grease off the side of the frig all the time.

 

In addition if the frig door is opened while you are cooking it will interfere with access to the stove as well.

 

Place the two appliances as far apart as practical.

 

Mike,
