DIY saw question

I need to make a small square cutout on the side of the cabinet that encloses my fridge. Small but enough to vent the fridge compressor to keep it from overheating. What kind of saw should I use? My fridge is in what the repairman called a cabinet closet.

Not knowing anything about the wood or the location, or the size and shape of the hole, I would say a jig saw would be your best bet.

An oscillating saw/tool may also work for you.

If possible to fit the confines, I would use an oscillating saw. Very effective for your square hole requirement. Use a narrow straight blade and take your time.
