Extremely hot panel between freezer and refrig sections

The outside front edge of the panel that is approx 2 inches wide is very hot to the touch. The panel light inside the freezer section with the ice maker on/off switch is blinking red. Even when turned off this edge continues hot to the touch. Is a fire danger immenent? What is the cause.

Usually is not a fire danger however there is a problem that needs attention. I would recommend that you call a qualified service man for this one as soon as possible.

Squeaky, chirping sound & exterior of fridge on veritical middle panel and freezer side are hot


I think you should try the following:

1. turn off the power.
2. clean/vacuum the lint under and behind the fridge.
3. after a few hours, power on.
If this does not work, you will have to call a repairer unless it is under warranty.
good luck

The strip between the freezer and refrig door is extremely hot. Never felt hot before. It is not the door, but the refrig and freezer itself. The refrig is still cold and freezer is frozen.


The heat you are feeling is normal, I wouldn't worry too much about it. If you start having a problem with cooling you may want to look into getting a repair guy to look at it but many refrigerators will heat up in that strip between the fridge and freezer.

My Whirpool frig is almost too hot to touch on the outside of the side of the freezer. About an 8 inch strip on front edge. Any suggestions?


When the refrigerator is on, check at the bottom of the fridge to see if there is any air blowing out. If not, your condenser fan is not working and this will cause the condenser to be very hot and transfer heat around the outside of the freezer door. If the fan is working, try cleaning the coils. Although my guess is the condenser is running hot for some reason.

LG GR727RB Top Freezer ok but bottom fridge is not cool


Hi softwaredude with an LG GR-727R refrig. The occasional build up of water on the bottom of the fresh foods sections tells me that the refrig is going through it's defrost cycle, but that the defrost drain is plugged. If you take the back off the refrig. you will see a plastic tube about 1/2 inch diameter with a few ribs on it going from the top of the compressor compartment to the bottom, which is a defrost water holding / evaporating pan. Look to see if that tube is plugged. If not, it is plugged further up, most likely where the defrost water drains off the evaporator (that the coils behind the freezer wall that do all the cooling). Take that back panel off and use a hair dryer to melt all the frost off. The frost is blocking air flow from the freezer section to the fresh foods section, thus poor or no cooling in the FF section. You should be able to spot where the defrost water is suppose to drain. If the water is not draining out, use a turkey baster with hot water to flush out the drain.

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.
