Hisense Mini Fridge Cyclopentane Sticker


I bought a Hisense hr6bf47 mini fridge recently and there is a sticker at the back with cyclopentane typed on it covering a hole. Does anyone know what this is and whether it needs to be taken off?

    Is cyclopentane dangerous?
    * The vapor can cause eye, nose and throat irritation.
    * Exposure can cause you to feel dizzy, lightheaded, and to pass out. Very high levels can cause coma.
    * Cyclopentane is a FLAMMABLE LIQUID and a FIRE HAZARD.


      Every MSDS for low MW hydrocarbons would say the same. It's not unlike petrol/gasoline, just not a mixture of different things.

    I'm guessing the refrigerant is cyclopentane instead of CFC or HFCC and the hole is where it was filled. I imagine you're meant to leave it alone. It's probably to tell someone repairing or disposing of the product what refrigerant is inside (because CFC and HFCC are ozone degraders).


      Thanks! Was a bit stumped as the sticker didn't look very secure but couldn't find anything through googling.


      HFCC is meant to be HCFC (hydrochlorofluorocarbons)
