Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
I have a kenmore side by side refrigerator, i noticed that the middle divider where the doors close onto heats up every now & then, is this normal?
Yes it is normal. Old side by sides had an electric heater through that strip known as the mullion that you could turn off with the "energy saver" switch. Not any more... it is now that last pass of the condenser that runs around the door to prevent moisture build up. The more load on the sealed system, the hotter the mullion. If it gets almost too hot to touch, clean the condenser coils as they are probably getting plugged with lint and can't evacuate heat anymore... cooling will suffer too if that's the case not to mention higher energy consumption.
