water between reverse osmosis and refrigirator

Hello,

i have RO installed under my kitchen cabinet

I have installed a water tube between RO and refrigerator in order to get RO water from my fridge water system
this is the tube my plumber installed
https://www.amazon.com/iSpring-Conne...B008H71Q4C#Ask

The tube is running from my Sink cabinet to underneath cabinets and to refrigerator. in between there is microwave oven installed and the tube is running beneath the oven. when i turn on the oven it generates very high heat at the bottom .
since the tube is running underneath the oven ( i dont have any other choice but to run the tube underneath the oven), will it get impacted due to high heat ?
if it gets impacted then how should i insulate it ?

A residential oven should not radiate enough heat to hurt anything since they are designed to be placed on and have wood right up next to it. There might be enough heat to eventually make the water in the tube warm but it should not get hot enough to damage even plastic tubing. After all, the oven doesn't radiate enough heat to damage the finish on cabinetry or to damage wood or vinyl flooring.

Thanks for the replies. sorry its Oven
whenever oven is turned on i can feel heat coming out form the bottom to my feet and its bit hot. in my next reply i will take image and upload it
i agree the heat wont spoil wood or the vynl. i am just concerned whether it impacts the water tube. of something happens to the tube when i am not in the house i will end up have watery house

sor
ry its Oven
So that makes more sense. This is a built in oven, inside a large cabinet?

Tube is running in the cabinet or under in the toe kick area?

Distance from oven to tube?
