    The refridgerator and freezer work fine. The edge closest to the door on refridgerator cabinet is hot in the middle on the top and sides.  I have cleaned the coils under the refridgerator, but it hasn't made any difference.

    I don't know if this is the exact model # but the fridge is hot on the outside on the top but is also making an annoying noise. High pitched if you ask me, but not sure how to best describe. Is it normal to make noise and be hot? The fridge is cooling correctly

HI thanks for the question. the heat around the cabinet and doors is normal . the heat prevents moisture from hitting a cold surface, and turning to water , which would cause water to run down the sides, rusting the hinges. thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks.

Frig is very hot on the outside ban that meets the seal


That heat that you feel is part of the design of all refrigerators. Those heaters are there to keep water from condensing on the outside of the cabinet around the freezer door. Just like water condenses on a cup of Ice water. It will do the same on a refrigerator. If those small heaters were not there. The water would cause the paint to rust badly. There are various arrangements of heaters used on Freezers and refrigerators around the doors. Particularly the Freezer door.
As long as the fridge is cooling properly it is fine.
If the fridge fails to get cold, the outside of the cabinet will actually get quite hot.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

Outside of refrig/freezer hot


Heat exchangers for rejecting heat to air are built into the outside walls. This is normal. Just make sure you have enough clearance for free air circulation around it.

Fresh Food Compartment not cold enough


check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator, freezer doesn't work, refrigerator works


Unless specifically made for use in a garage most units won't work properly. The owners manual should say what the temp range for proper operation is (usually 55F is the low range). This is because the refrigerator section doesn't need to be "cooling" to maintain 37F if the temps on the outside are below 55F. These things are made to work in a 70F room and will not work properly if under 55F. Stupid thing thinks it's cold enough so it will never turn on, the refer section will stay cold/cool due to outside temps but since the compressor never runs the freezer will just be the same temp as the refer section (at best). Sorry, but in order for a freezer or refrigerator to work in an unheated space it must have the temp control device controling the freezer section NOT the fresh food section. In other words, that model will not work in a garage unless the temps are above 55F always.
