My LG refrigerator seems to be getting quite hot, is this normal?

cause  Cause

Hot line pipes are fitted into the sides of the unit via the condenser to prevent condensation forming near the door. You may find that your unit may get hotter in the summer months as condensing gets more difficult when the temperature rises.

 

When the product is being used for the first time or in the summer, the compressor will

run for much longer to produce the cooler air and in turn this generates heat. This is

completely normal and not a defect. In the summer, the product may repeatedly get hot

and cool due to low heat radiation. Install the refrigerator where air circulates well and

keep a distance of 5 centimeters from the back and both sides of the wall.
