I saw a question similar to this but it was specific to energy consumption. My question is that our current kitchen setup has the oven next to the freezer side of our fridge. I’ve seen this setup in other kitchens too. We’re looking to upgrade the fridge and the oven. Will the heat from the oven affect the freezer side of the fridge enough that I should look at separating the two? As you can see the oven is older than old and the fridge is old. When we first installed the fridge 5 years ago the ice maker worked. Now it doesn’t and any ice we put in the ice bay freezes in to a block if we cook a lot. When it was first installed the ice was fine. I’m worried the oven heat wore down the fridge faster than normal.
