Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Sorry about the delay. I'm glad you're thinking the installation through. The door must be opened at a 135 degree angle to allow the crisper drawers to slide out. That means you'll need a filler panel of 13 inches on the left side of your refrigerator in order to open the door enough to remove the crisper drawers.
