Question about Refrigerators
Hi, I just got a new Oster refrigerator and I connected it about 5 hours ago. It is cooling ok but the sides of the cabinet are really warm to the touch, even hot in some areas. Is this normal? Nothing in the manual addresses this. I do have it plugged into a surge protector with a 9 foot cord going to the wall outlet. The manual says not to use an extension cord but I didn't think that would include a surge protector type cord.
Thank You for any help on this,

I just bought it from bestbuys for $99. It does get really hot when I have the setting on high, but it is still warm when i have it at 1/2 power...warmer than I would like it to be. I connect it straight to the wall outlet.
The temp. may be higher due to ambient temps.
The frige came with messed up box, paint defects...so I thought that it was a decfect/return...but I guess it may be normal for it to get so hot.
