  • Patent number: 9970701
    Abstract: A refrigerator reduces a quantity of deformation of a body by improving rigidity of the body using a reinforcement structure. The refrigerator may include an electric apparatus box in which electric apparatus components for controlling an operation of the refrigerator are accommodated. Electric apparatus components may be disposed in a hinge cover which is disposed in the front of the refrigerator to improve spatial utility and a reinforcement plate formed of a steel material may be disposed in the electric apparatus box to prevent a fire from spreading. A heating pipe fixed to a front edge of an inner case of the refrigerator prevents dew condensation in an outer case of the refrigerator. The heating pipe is mounted on a fixing groove formed in a mounting portion provided on the front edge of the inner case. The heating pipe is fixed to the mounting portion using a clip.
