    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.

Inside the frame is a warm bit of pipework, or sometimes a mullion heater, that stops the seal freezing to the frame.

Front metal , top heating element very hot


This should be OK. There are heat strips placed behind the door frame to prevent sweating around the door frame due to the metal being cold normally without the strips. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Outside of freezer is hot


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.

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.

Kenmoore refridgator side by side rubber gets hot


If you have a model with an energy saver switch turn the switch on. This reduces the heat to the mullion heater built into the door frame.
The door frame heater is used to prevent moisture from condensing on the seal surface around the door and acts as a thermal break between the outside and temperature inside the refrigerator.
