It is normal for that panel to get warm while the fridge is running. There is a hot gas tube from the compressor running through it to prevent frost built up. If it's feeling a little too hot try cleaning the coils under the fridge. This will allow the gasses to cool a little more efficiently thus allowing the fridge to cool quicker.

Whirlpool double door fridge. Door wont stay closed. Have to push extra hard to keep it closed


Take out the shelves and drawers. check the rear is clear of ice before putting them back in place, and ensure they are not stopping the door closing. Next check the top and bottom of the door. Is it hitting the frame when closing? If so, straighten it up by tapping the hinge side of the door to make it square to the frame.

LG gn253sqa electro cool- temp. control lights in fridge keep flashing and fridge not cooling so good, help?


This has happened to me a couple of times.The problem is that when the fridge door is opened too may times the warm air of summer will block the cold outlets in the fridge with ice.The cold air comes direct from the freezer and the chamber connecting to the fridge clogs up with ice.What one has to do is completely empty the fridge and freezer,leave open both doors so the the ice build-up can melt.Then after about at least 4-5 hours (very important to stick by this time-frame as I tried a less time,but it did not work.),close both the freezer and fridge doors and switch it on.After about 1/2 hour replace your goods in the fridge.The down-side of this is that you will need the kindness of a neighbor or two to use their fridge to store your food whilst this fix is underway..

Door frame warm


Nearly all modern fridges are self defrosting. Additionally, some models offer the option to minimize moisture on the cabinet. To do both the defrosting and controlling moisture build up, small heaters are used. Defrost heaters are located in the freezer compartment.

Typically, the other heaters are installed in the frame on the front of the fridge cabinet, near the freezer opening. This is where sub-freezing cold air would escape and contact the warmer (room temperature) outer cabinet. This causes condensation much the same way a glass of cold water "sweats" sitting on a counter or table. The warmer and more humid the room is, the more quickly the condensation will form. The heater is used to quickly evaporate any moisture that collects on the cabinet. This heater is operated at the same time as the defrost heater, and they are turned on by a timer, 2 or 3 times a day for about 20 to 30 minutes each time. When they are powered, it is expected that the cabinet will be warm to the touch. You may smell plastic, as the door seals adjacent to and in contact with the heated parts of the freezer opening are warmed, and is normal - particularly if new. The heaters should never be hot to the touch nor should smoke be seen.

I hope this helps!

Refrigerator door will open slightly (sometimes imperceptually) when freezer door is shut, causing refrigerator to get warm. Cleaning door seal has not helped


Please check that the door is not twisted, have you got children that could have possibly been hanging on the door, most fridges have a plate that is adjustable that is on the bottom R/hand or L/hand door, but it will mean to pull the fridge clear of any work surfaces disconnect the power supply first tilt it back as far as possible but do not lay it down as this my cause any particles in the system to get into the small pipe work and block rendering useless, slacken off the screws or bolts just enough for the door to move locate the door equally around the fridge and retighten bolts, if this does not cure the problem then stand fridge up right and put a small block of wood or something similar in between the door and frame in the area that does touch the fridge then gently push the door in not to much just a bit at a time until the magnetic strip locks against the fridge to give a good seal.

Good luck

Side by side refrigerator is not cold. Bottom freezer is.


if the freezer is cold and the fridge is not then it can be several things. The freezer could have a bunrt out defrost heater, defrost timer faulty, fan not working in the freezer??. all of these things will stop your fridge getting cold, but your freezer will still be around minus 9 deg c. you wont get any air into the fridge as the coil in the freezer is prob all iced over. Dont worry about the heat on the door frame as it is only the anti sweat heater
