#2 The sides of my refrigerator feel hot. Is this normal?
You may notice that the outside of your fridge feels warm. This is caused by the heat dissipated from the refrigeration process and is normal.
If your fridge feels warmer than it should, it may be the spacing between your fridge and it’s surroundings. Ensure that there is a minimum distance of 50 mm of space free around the sides and at the back of the unit and then at least 25 mm space at the top.
Also, check to see to see if there are any nearby heat sources that could contribute to the increase in surface temperature.
