    can you supply the make and model # please?

    can you tell me the temperature setting in both fridge and freezer sections?

  • Carmen Mikulic Sep 29, 2008

    good, just wanted to make sure the temperature settings weren't off.

    both doors have rubber gaskets around them. the gaskets are removable and doors are adjustable, so no worries. this is a case of either one. if you have the use and care guide, you should be able to do this yourself.

  • Carmen Mikulic Sep 29, 2008

    the reason they are hot is becase they are pressing too hard against the cabinet.

    here is the procedure for adjustment. have a look through section 3-1:

  • Carmen Mikulic Sep 30, 2008

    the metal should not be hot at all. go ahead and do the adjustment, as i provided earlier, as the door gaskets are rubber and will stretch out or melt with the heat.

Freezer side is hot outside

There is no problem at all. The outside of the freezer is hot because it is rejecting heat from the inside of freezer compartment to the outside surroundings, this is a normal refrigeration cycle. As for the seals being hot, this may be to prevent the door from freezing shut. i know that commercial and industrial freezers have heated seals for this reason.

Whirlpool refrigerator side by side door seal very hot

when you said fans working....does it include the condenser fan? or it may have two evaporator fans..

if condenser fan is working, then it is just normal. if the compressor is running, that part would really heat up. and if it is too hot, then the condenser fan could probably not running.

its not constant because the compressor cuts off when ever the thermostat cuts off.

tnx 4 using fixya,

There is an electric heater in the center which is called a mullion heater. If you have an energy saver switch on your model turn it to the saving position.
