How hot is the side of the refrigerator?





It is because of hot line pipe installed on sides by extending condenser to prevent dews

forming near the door. The product may get hotter as condensing is more difficult

when temperature rises in summer.


How to fix


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.  Install the refrigerator

where air circulates well and keep distance of 5 centimeters from back and both sides of the wall.



As a vehicle motor appears to be hotter in summer, refrigerator can also be
     found hot when temperature rises in summer.

Keep distance between the product and walls during summer and cleaning
     dust from the back of the product also helps to cool (When it is
     too hot, place a fan behind the refrigerator to face the bottom).
