What's the Correct Location for a Chest and Upright Freezer

Choosing the Best Location for a Maytag Chest or Upright Freezer

  • Do not install the freezer near an oven, radiator, or other heat source, nor in a location where the temperature will fall below 40°F or exceed 110°F.
  • Allow at least 3" (7.5 cm) of air space at the top and on both sides of the freezer and 2" (2.5 cm) between the back of the freezer and the wall. If the freezer is to be against a wall, leave extra space on the hinge side so the door can open wider.

NOTE: Some freezers may be installed side by side with another refrigerator or freezer. Allow for a 3" (7.5 cm) clearance at the top and sides and a ¹⁄¿" (0.64 cm) clearance between the appliances.
