Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practicing lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
May I ask if you have yet made a formal as opposed to informal complaint regarding the quality of the work in question please? If so has the council given you a formal response to your complaint?
Thank you for your reply but it was not a question of law that was being asked. My query was a technical one which posed the question as to whether the fridge/freezer would be damaged if sandwiched between the wall and the kitchen unit.
Thanks for your reply. I apologise for my misunderstanding. You have either deliberately or accidentally posted your question in the UK legal section of this site hence my confusion. May I transfer your question to one of my colleagues in the electronic and appliances section where they may be able to assist you? The alternative is to have the work rectified which I would certainly assist you with.
I think it was my fault when I said I was chasing the Council - in fact this aspect is already under way with a local Councillor who is doing her best to find a solution. My apologies for not being completely clear when asking the question.
Not at all. My view would be that you would look at getting the council to rectify the work rather than compromise. I can outline the process you can use to force the councils hand in this respect if you wish. If you would prefer me to transfer this to a section staffed by engineers who should be able to assist with the practical aspect though please let me know
What I am seeking, at the present moment, is advice as to whether the unit will suffer by being enclosed, the freezer part completely except at the rear and fridge partly enclosed, (one side completely the other about a quarter contained. The fridge is open to air completely at the rear and over the top.
No problem. I will ask that this is transferred. This may take a few hours to complete. Best wishes
Hello good evening. I hope that I can carry on and give you some help with your issue. A lot of the modern appliances can be fitted into compact spaces in modern kitchens. enclosed or partly as you describe. The only issue is getting airflow around the rear where the heating coils are situated. There should be around 100 mm space. at the rear. A suggestion could be if you have wooden floors put two or three holes about half inch diameter this may increase air flow to the rear of the appliances. If the floor is concrete or other increase the gap at the rear if possible. I hope that can help you. Kind regards
