    How long to wait before putting food into a new fridge? 5th Jun 11 at 11:49 PM
    Not sure if this is the correct forum or not but here goes.

    I had a new fridge delivered this afternoon.

    The delivery bloke said to wait 4 hours before switching it on but nothing about when I could put food in there.

    The manual says to switch it on after 2 hours but we gave it 4 anyway.

    It doesn't say in the manual how long to wait before you can put food in there.

    I have put some spread, 1 litre of milk and some ham in there as these were things that wouldn't last long out of the fridge, so not a lot really.

    Should I have left it empty for a number of hours before using it?
