Question: Sides of refrigerator or back of refrigerator is warm


When the refrigerator is working, the room of the refrigerator will be cooling or freezing, the heat that is absorbed from the food of refrigerator will change to the high-temperature and high-pressure gas. The gas enter to condenser and dissipate the heat through the condenser . Condenser is installed on the back or both sides of refrigerator. So when you touch the cabinet that installed the condenser, it is warm, especially in summer, it will be hot.

solution :

1.keep the refrigerator more than 10cm to the wall.
2. Keep the refrigerator to the
ventilative place. 

About the temperature of the sides and back of the refrigerator, the standard is:

at ambient temperature of 25 ℃ (which this standard is using as normal base) the max. temperature measured on coated metal surfaces of appliance enclosures must not pass over 65 ℃




The temperature of the sides



The   ambient temperature is 25℃, the refrigerator is running normally

about   40℃

The   normal temperature


The   ambient temperature is 25℃, it is power on at first

about   50℃

The   highest temperature


The   ambient temperature is more than 35℃

about   50℃~55℃

The   highest temperature

At this temperature, our body   can’t be hurt if we touch it quickly, but if we touch it long time, we could   be hurt. Especially for baby, keep them from the sides and back of the   refrigerator
