    We had this refrigerator for 8 years and never had this problem, I can't believe there is nothing wrong with it. It's so hot you can burn yourself if you touch it. any more advice out there?

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.

Refrigerator door is very hot


That should be warm not hot. It is a thermal break between the inside temperature and the humidity outside. It prevents moisture from condensing on frame of the door. Check for another problem such as is you freezer and refrigerator cool enough. On most modern models there is an energy saver switch which will limit the energy used by the heaters. Turn the energy saver switch on.
