So you do not want to push up against a wall you want to leave at least 4" behind it so the warm air can get out from behind it.
The most importabt aspect is the weight of the fridge that you intend to mount on top, and obviously should be directed to the manuafacturer,
In addition you should be aware of the two (2) top mounted doorhinges on the fronting side and no such installation in the back, which would result in a slanted set-up towards the back.
I have my unit on a set of appliance casters, so that it can easily be pulled away from the wall it stands in front of.
This permits an easy cleaning access to the ventilation fan covers I deem most important and perform every 8-12 months. Should this be important to you aswell, your cleaning procedure might become a tad more hazardous. Installation of a set of strong Wall brackets might be a consideration..
Good luck and cheers!
[if you actually exist],
Have not bought one for this product. Still am under original warranty and already most unhappy: although billed as a DUAL TEMPERATURE product, it only maintains equal temperature in both compartments. This happens to be the median, between both temps programmed as desired ones.
On the subject of extended warranties: my life's experience is: they generally are NOT worth what they are purported to be and most often a pain in the You know where, when trying to make a claim.
Frankly I [as a customer] don't have the foggiest of notions whether that might be possible since I have absolutely no knowledge the company's inventories nor capabilities.
In my humble view though, two of the shelves, those directly under the units supposedly maintaining the desired temperature in each segment, are of little value due to the crammed space there, as you might have already discovered yourself.
Remove those if you intend to utilize them elsewhere.
If you have broken two, they should either be easily repairable or may be replaced by those mentioned above.
Design,silent operation and efficiency of the unit are excellent. Very happy in that department.
Unfortunately though the shelves will not accommodate Rhone,classic Burgundy or Alsace/German style bottles, which a either too long or too wide in the midriff.
Compliments on the very excellent packaging and ease of installation when reading the enclosed guidelines first and following them to the T.

-shelves are flimsy as others have mentioned
-it really doesn't fit 48. It's really 42 unless you have smaller dessert wine bottles as someone else mentioned. like a lot of these fridges, you might not be able to fit some larger 750ml bottles, e.g., chateauneuf du pape, but that's to be expected from this kind of unit
-you can make it work for you. I took out some shelves and have six magnums on one side
-cool LED blue lights if you're in the mood
Bought the unit about 4 months ago. Assuming the fans keep going for us, this will have been a great purchase.
