Why does the front frame get real hot aroune top and bottom doors?


In some units the condenser coils run inside the outer walls of the fridge and this area can get warm. If its really hot check the visible coils at the rear and underneath the unit they may be badly clogged with dust, which cause the rest of the system to run much hotter since the airflow to the lower ones is blocked off. Make sure you clean all visible coils at least every 6 months. This will also cut down on the energy use.

Whirlpool fbb36af20/2 fridge freezer frame of front fridge freezer getting hot, fan at bottom back stoped working replaced fan but when you plug in new fan it starts to work but when you fully push the fan...


Hot frame is mullion heaters. Keeps moisture from forming on door and causing rust. Sounds like the connector is defective, remove connectors and wire direct. If fan won't run then you need to call a qualified service tech.

Front metal , top heating element very hot


This should be OK. There are heat strips placed behind the door frame to prevent sweating around the door frame due to the metal being cold normally without the strips. Thanks, Sea Breeze

CHECK CONDENSOR FAN IN REAR OF UNIT NEAR COMPRESSOR. IF COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING AND UNIT IS COOLING SOME, CONDENSOR FAN IS LIKLY THE PROBLEM. IF THE CONDENSOR FAN DOES NOT RUN THE COILS UNDERNEATH AND THE LOOP THAT RUNS NEAR THE FRONT EDGE OF BOTH DOORS WILL BE HOT.
