LG Fridge gets very hot on panel ( by the door)

My LG fridge ( electro cool) is almost 3 years old now. It recently started getting very hot on the side panel where you open the door. Sometimes it gets so hot that when you accidently touch it, it burns your skin.

Is this normal, could it be that the fridge is taking strain keeping the food cool during summer. What I can do?

Pull frig out from wall and take back off lower part and check the cond motor to make sure it is blowing and chances are it isn't so it will need to be replace / if so you can set a small fan behind to blow on compressor and coils to keep it cool till you can replace it / larry

I have a 15 year old Jenn Air Fridge/freezer Model no JRSD249OT . Recently side of doors feel hot and now fridge not getting cold. Appreciate any advice


You will need to pull the fridge out and remove the rear lower panel. If the unit is operating you will be looking to see that the fan in the rear is also operating. Most likely it is not. You will need to replace that fan motor if it is not.

LG Bottom freezer refrigerator Model LFC21760 does not cool


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages

Panel between fridge and freezer hot on Kenmore fridge


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.
