BRAND NEW – ODOR ISSUE
Heady smell further to installation
Great refrigerators such as LG are so airtight that the moment they are unpacked and installed
and doors opened for the first time a heady smell of plastic can take you aback.
New refrigerators may smell due to plastic material and other parts but mostly on account of
being airtight and not having had cavity breathe for a long time between manufacturing plant,
transportation and storage prior to household delivery.
When dealing with a strong plastic odor, cleaning with a mixture of baking soda and warm water
will help alleviate odor. Mix two tablespoons of baking soda to one quart warm water and ensure
baking soda is fully dissolved so not to scratch inner surface.
Some refrigerators are also equipped with a deodorizer. When used for a long time, its performance
may be impeded. Clean deodorizer and the inside of the refrigerator.
※ Deodorizer can be used semi-permanently. Dry with a hair dryer or in sunlight to reuse.
※ If food with a strong smell is spilled over the deodorizer, deodorizer needs to be replaced.
