I have just bought a new Beko fridge/ freezer, it has been on for 3 hours and and it as very hot on the outside of the casing of the freezer near the door and a bit at the bottom of the fridge also near the door. Is this normal or dangerous. I just changed my old unit because of this as I thought it was dangerous Is there a fault here?Could there be a faulty condenser fan? The model number is *****
Yes it was transported upright. Washed it down on the inside and then filled it up and then turned it on
I lust read on the internet that in hot weather the outside casing can get hot and it is normal so I'm really confused now???
the point is -is it dangerous-a fire risk -risk of explosion.Health damaging or life threatening in any way
This is the question and do you know these facts?If not , please can you find out the answers from someone who does know for me and pass them on.
if it is just" not right" and none of those risks then I can use it until a replacement arrives.
OK, to answer your new questions.
No, it's not health damaging.No it's not a fire risk if only the casing is getting hot.No, it's not dangerous.No, it's not life threatening.The worst that will happen, if the fault is exactly as has been posted, is it won't cool properly and may stop working.
Hope this helpsThanks
It settled down -all OK. Thanks for the advice
