Question about Whirlpool Gold White-on-White 21.9 cu. ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Ice and Water GD2SHAXLQ Side by Side Refrigerator
The front edges of the the freezer compartment (where the door seals meet) are very hot to the touch to the point that some heat is transferred to the outside of the freezer door. The rest of the outside of the panels are normal. Nothing else abnormal in its operation. Is this a concern?
Test the element with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. To gain access to the heating element, remove the compartment's wall panels. Clip one probe of the VOM to each element terminal. The meter should read between 5 and 20 ohms. If it doesn't, the heating element is faulty and should be replaced. Replace the heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. Connect the new heater the same way the old one was connected.

Yup...the condenser fan is not running at the back or the condenser is very dirty.
remove the front lower grill and look underneath. see if there are a lot of dust and dirt accumulated in the font of the condenser. use a good vacuum cleaner to get to the dirt.
open the rear cover and check the condenser fan if it is not sticking up or if it is not binding.
use some lubricating oil on the bushings if they are.
the fan should come on as the compressor runs with out any pushing needed.
tnx 4 using fixya,
