How hot is the front of the refrigerator?





This is normal and is because of the hot line pipe that is installed on the inner sides by extending the condenser

to prevent dew and condensation from forming near or around the door. 
The surfaces can get hotter as the ambient temperatures increases furing summer months or when the refrigerator

is initially installed.


How to fix


When the product is used for the first time or in summer, the compressor runs longer

to make cool air which generates more heat. It is a normal phenomenon and not a defect.

In summer, the surface of the refrigerator may repeatedly get hot and cool due to low heat radiation.  
Install the refrigerator in a location with adequate air circulatation
keep a distance of 5 centimeters from the back and 2cm on both sides from the wall.



As a vehicle motor appears to be hotter in summer, a refrigerator's surface can also be found to be warmer

     when temperature rises in summer.Keep the appropriate distance between the product and the walls.

     Cleaning dust from the back of the product also helps the air to circulate better. always read the user guide before cleaning the refrigerator.
