Is sponge-like material sticking out on the outside?





Inner walls of the refrigerator have been insulated to keep and maintain cold air inside. 
Therefore, insulating materials are inserted during production of refrigeration appliances.





The sponge-like material does not affect product performance (cold air), therefore it can be left

as it is or can be removed.


The circular papers have been placed to seal the insulating materials.


Removing the papers will not affect the product performance either. On the other hand, removal

of either sponge-like material or paper cover risks deteriorating the overall look of the product so

may we suggest leaving them alone.
