we have a new larder fridge arriving today. behind existing one are 4 medium copper pipes for GCh/water, 2 are hot now. previous owners have nicely boxed these in. My husband wants to take the encasement off to give slightly better room for the fridge which will fit ,but will give us better door opening. He will do this when he gets in from work......I have already done this... by unscrewing Phillips screws and two of the pipes are really hot. so I would think it would be sensible to keep the boxing on, so as not to affect the working of the fridge. What would you suggest and how shall I put it to my husband without making him feel stupid!! Ha Ha! Mrs Cora XXXX
Thanks for the info will try and `gently` advise husband!!
