No back cover behind the refrigerator at the bottom





Refrigerators featuring storage capacity below 290L will have the compressor cooled down by

free convection cooling so, no need for a back cover attached at the very bottom in order to

enhance efficiency.





Cover is not necessary for normal operation.



Refrigerators with capacity less than 290L do not have a cover. This is not a defect.


Refrigerators boasting storage capacity greater than 300L feature a fan motor to
    cool down compressor and have a cover on the back preventing dust from creeping in.
