Does it smell of rubber behind the refrigerator?





New products may smell of rubber. 

Rubber is attached to prevent noise from the compressor

and smell of rubber can occur due to heat generated by the compressor. 

In particular, smell can be strong when the product is used for the first time

as compressor runs for a long time.


How to fix


Smell will eventually disappear within 1 to 2 months of use.
