    [0001] Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a refrigerator, and more particularly, to a refrigerator having an improved assembling structure.

    2. Description of the Related Art



    [0002] Generally, a refrigerator includes a storage compartment for storing food, and a cool-air supplying apparatus for supplying cool air to the storage compartment to keep food fresh.

    [0003] Typical refrigerators could have performed only a function of storing food at low temperature. However, in recent years, a need for performing other functions in addition to the function of storing food is increasing.

    [0004] Accordingly, recently, a refrigerator in which a display with input and output functions, a Universal Serial Bus (USB) connecting unit and/or a camera is installed in a door is being developed. Electronic components of the refrigerator are installed in the upper portion of the main body, and the main body has space for accommodating the electronic components.

    [0005] Wires for connecting the display, the USB connecting unit and/or the camera installed in the door to the electronic components installed in the main body extend from the space for accommodating the electronic components to the door. If the wires are exposed to the outside of the main body, a user who uses the refrigerator may experience inconvenience, and the outer appearance of the refrigerator may deteriorate.

    [0006] In order to solve the problem, various methods have been suggested to cover the space for accommodating the electronic components, however, typical cover units are not easy to assemble and disassemble, have a poor appearance, and have gaps between parts.

    [0007] WO 2010/029094 A2 relates to a refrigerator wherein the door opening direction can be changed.

FIGS. 7, 8, 9 and 10 are views for describing a process in which the cover frame according to an embodiment of the present disclosure is coupled with the base frame from the left to the right of the base frame. FIGS. 11. 12. 13 and 14 are views for describing a process in which the cover frame according to an embodiment of the present disclosure is coupled with the base frame from the right to the left of the base frame.

    [0056] The cover frame 130 slides to be coupled with the base frame 110. Sliding from the left to the right of the base frame 110 is defined as sliding in a first direction, and sliding from the right to the left of the base frame 110 is defined as sliding in a second direction.

    [0057] The refrigerator 1 according to an embodiment of the present disclosure may include a cover unit 100 to cover the electronic component accommodating space 13. The cover unit 100 may include a base frame 110 mounted on the main body 10 and primarily covering the electronic component accommodating space 13, a hinge cover 120 mounted on the base frame 110, and a cover frame 130 mounted on the base frame 110 and secondarily covering the electronic component accommodating space 13.

    [0058] The base frame 110 includes a first hinge accommodating portion 111 and a second hinge accommodating portion 112 in the right and left portions respectively in order to mount the hinge 141 and the hinge cover 120 covering the hinge 141. More specifically, the first hinge accommodating portion 111 may be disposed in the right end portion of the base frame 110, and the second hinge accommodating portion 112 may be disposed in the left end portion of the base frame 110.

    [0059] The first hinge accommodating portion 111 may penetrate the base frame 110 in a front-rear direction so that the hinge 141 fixed at the main body 10 through the hinge bracket 142 protrudes forward from the main body 10. When the hinge cover 120 is mounted on the first hinge accommodating portion 111, a part of the first hinge accommodating portion 111 is covered by the hinge cover 120, and the remaining part of the first hinge accommodating portion 111 is covered by the cover frame 130.

    [0060] When the hinge 141 and the hinge cover 120 are mounted on the first hinge accommodating portion 111, the door 30 can rotate with respect to the right end of the main body 10.

    [0061] The second hinge accommodating portion 112 may penetrate the base frame 110 in the front-rear direction so that the hinge 141 fixed at the main body 10 through the hinge bracket 142 protrudes forward from the main body 10. When the hinge cover 120 is mounted on the second hinge accommodating portion 112, a part of the second hinge accommodating portion 112 is covered by the hinge cover 120, and the remaining part of the second hinge accommodating portion 112 is covered by the cover frame 130.

    [0062] If the hinge 141 and the hinge cover 120 are mounted on the second hinge accommodating portion 112, the door 30 can rotate with respect to the left end of the main body 10.

    [0063] The first hinge accommodating portion 111 and the second hinge accommodating portion 112 may be symmetrical with respect to the center of the refrigerator 1 in the left-right direction.

    [0064] The base frame 110 may include a frame connecting portion 113 hooked with the frame hook 133 of the cover frame 130 so that the cover frame 130 can be mounted on the base frame 110. A plurality of frame connecting portions 113 may be provided.

    [0065] The frame connecting portion 113 may be formed at the upper end and/or the lower end of the base frame 110. Although not shown, the frame connecting portion 113 may be formed at the center of the base frame 110.

    [0066] As shown in FIG. 3, if the frame connecting portions 113 are provided at the upper and lower ends of the base frame 110, the shape of the frame connecting portion 113 provided at the upper end of the base frame 110 may be symmetrical to the shape of the frame connecting portion 113 provided at the lower end of the base frame 110 with respect to an imaginary baseline extending in the left-right direction. However, the frame connecting portions 113 may be disposed asymmetrically.

    [0067] More specifically, the frame connecting portion 113 may include a hook inserting portion 113a into which a frame hook 133 to be described later is inserted, a first hook fixing portion 113b extending to the right from the hook inserting portion 113a, and a second hook fixing portion 113c extending to the left from the hook inserting portion 113a.

    [0068] The hook inserting portion 113a may be larger than the first hook fixing portion 113b and the second hook fixing portion 113c so that a second extending portion 133b of the frame hook 133 to be described later can be inserted into the hook inserting portion 113a.

    [0069] On the other hand, a first hook fixing portion 113b and a second hook fixing portion 113c may be smaller than the hook inserting portion 113a to prevent a second extending portion 133b from being separated from the frame connecting portion 113 when the cover frame 130 is mounted on the base frame 110.

    [0070] That is, if the frame hook 133 is inserted into the first hook fixing portion 113b or the second hook fixing portion 113c, the cover frame 130 may be restricted from moving in a sliding direction (i.e. the left direction or the right direction), the vertical direction, and the front-rear direction with respect to the base frame 110, so that the cover frame 130 can be fixed at the base frame 110.

    [0071] So far, the frame connecting portion 113 has been described, however, the shape of the frame connecting portion 113 is not limited to this. That is, the frame connecting portion 113 may have any configuration as long as it can enable the cover frame 130 to slide on the base frame 110 to be fixed at the base frame 110.

    [0072] Referring to FIG. 6, the base frame 110 may include a first connecting portion 114a and a second connecting portion 114b which are hooked with the hinge cover hook 128 of the hinge cover 120 so that the hinge cover 120 can be mounted on the base frame 110. More specifically, the first connecting portion 114a may be provided in the first hinge accommodating portion 111 to be hooked with the hinge cover hook 128 when the hinge cover 120 is mounted on the first hinge accommodating portion 111 of the base frame 110, and the second connecting portion 114b may be provided in the second hinge accommodating portion 112 to be hooked with the hinge cover hook 128 when the hinge cover 120 is mounted on the second hinge accommodating portion 112 of the base frame 110.

    [0073] The first connecting portion 114a may be provided at a position corresponding to the hinge cover hook 128 of the hinge cover 120 inside the first hinge accommodating portion 111, and the second connecting portion 114b may be provided at a position corresponding to the hinge cover hook 128 of the hinge cover 120 inside the second hinge accommodating portion 112.

    [0074] The base frame 110 may include a connecting member 118 having a connecting hole 118a, and a base hook 115 extending from the rear surface of the base frame 110 toward the main body 10 so that the base frame 110 is mounted on the main body 10 to primarily cover the electronic component accommodating space 13.

    [0075] More specifically, a plurality of base hooks 115 may be provided approximately symmetrically to the left and right portions of the base frame 110, respectively. The base hooks 115 may be provided at the left end of the first hinge accommodating portion 111 and the right end of the second hinge accommodating portion 112, respectively. The base hooks 115 may be hooked with base connecting holes 15 of the main body 10.

    [0076] A plurality of connecting members 118 may be provided approximately symmetrically on the left and right portions of the base frame 110, respectively. The connecting members 118 may be provided at the right end of the first hinge accommodating portion 111 and the left end of the second hinge accommodating portion 112, respectively. The base frame 110 can be more firmly coupled with the main body 10 if screws are coupled to the connecting hole 118a of the connecting member 118 and the base hole 17 of the main body 10.

    [0077] In the current embodiment, the base frame 110 may be coupled with the main body 10 through hook coupling and screw coupling, however, the base frame 110 may be coupled with the main body 10 through any one of hook coupling and screw coupling or in a tight fitting manner.

    [0078] The base frame 110 may include a first base supporting portion 116 and a second base supporting portion 117 to support the hinge cover 120 to restrict lateral movement of the hinge cover 120 when the hinge cover 120 is mounted. The first base supporting portion 116 may be provided at the right end of the base frame 110, and the second base supporting portion 117 may be provided at the left end of the base frame 110. The first base supporting portion 116 and the second base supporting portion 117 may be in the shape of a groove so that one end 121 of the hinge cover 120 can be inserted into the first base supporting portion 116 and the second base supporting portion 117.

    [0079] More specifically, when the hinge cover 120 is mounted on the first hinge accommodating portion 111, one end 121 of the hinge cover 120 may be supported by the first base supporting portion 116, and when the hinge cover 120 is mounted on the second hinge accommodating portion 112, one end 121 of the hinge cover 120 may be supported by the second base supporting portion 117.

    [0080] Referring to FIGS. 4 to 6, the hinge cover 120 may be mounted on the base frame 110, and may include a first space 124 in which wires are disposed and second space 125 in which the hinge 141 is disposed.
