            1. When the product is used for the first time or in summer, compressor runs longer to make cool air and generates much heat.  It is a normal

                phenomenon and not a defect of a product. In summer, the product may repeatedly gets hot and cool due to low heat radiation. 
 
           2. Install the refrigerator when air circulates well and keep distance of 5 centimeters from back and both sides of the wall.
