It took 20 minutes to release the man, believed to be in his 20s, from the electrical appliance as rescuers covered him in olive oil.
Emergency services were called to the house to assist with the rescue.
Police said the man from Mooropna, north of Melbourne, Australia, had climbed into the hiding place to wait for his partner to come.
Shepparton Police Sergeant Michelle De Araugo said: “He was very well wedged in there and we were concerned for his health and wellbeing.
“It was just a game gone wrong. It would be fair to say the gentleman was very embarrassed.”
Peanut butter and ice were used in the attempt to free her.
Her mother said: “I felt bad for her, but at the same time, I found it pretty funny.”
