How important is the back cover on the bottom,in the rear of Refrigerator. Would it affect the operation of the Refrigerator Temperature wise?
Answer John, the rear cover is pretty important. It directs the air flow across the compressor and condenser coils, and shields the compartment from dirt dust and objects that can accumulate behind the refrigerator. It can and does affect the cooling of the refrigerator. but is usually very minor and not noticed. You may want to remove power to the refrigerator, clean out any lint, dust, debris from the compartment and the components in the compartment and install the cover to help the refrigerator operate more efficiently and proper.
