Does it smell of rubber behind the refrigerator?

 

 

Details

 

New products may smell of rubber. 

Rubber is present to prevent noise from the compressor

and the smell of rubber can occur due to heat generated by the compressor. 

In particular, the smell can be strong when the product is used for the first time

as compressor runs for a long time and will produce a larger than normal amount of heat.

This is normal.

 

How to fix

 

Smell will eventually disappear within 1 to 2 months of use.
