Two sides of freezer very hot to the touch

Each side of freezer, which is on top, are burning hot to the touch. I only noticed this three days ago, and it cooled down twice for a short period of time in those three days. Does anyone else have this problem, and if so, did you find a solution? Thank you.

This is a sure sign of pending compressor failure (high heat and head pressure, Since that 2 inch section comes directly from the compressor.For verification,
Remove the back cover, and place your hand on the compressor.(careful,may be hot) should be able to leave your hand on compressor without burning.
Check condensor fan in that same area , It may be not running
causing all the trouble

2006 chrysler pacifica-wheel hubs burning hot


The problem might have already been there,the steel wheels are making it noticeable,because they don`t cool down as quick.Most likely is the calipers sticking,or you have a set of high dollar brake pads on the vehicle,and they are heating the rotors up.The high dollar pads are a very hard composite pad witch produce a lot of friction,and heat as a sort of side affect.

Ice maker hasn't worked in years. A couple of days ago food below the ice maker was thawed. Today I felt that the ice maker was hot to the touch. Is there anyway to disengage the power to the ice make


Yes you will need to take the screws that mount the Ice maker to the side of the freezer and unplug the cable plug that is hidden behind the back of ice maker. The only time that element is needed to become hot is the moments before the ice maker drops ice. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Exterior side walls VERY hot


Hi wjjlaw,
ngafm at your service,

Is the hot side th open side or against the wall or cabinet side?

Have you touched this side before in he two years you have this appliance? Or is it that you just noticed it?

And if you can keep your hand on that spot for a long time it is not so hot only warm? If it is not burning your had it is probably just the characteristic of that fridge!
Check if the freezer part is full to the top and packed full.
Freezers can not be so full that you cover the cold air vents usually found in th rear of the freezer.


My advice is only a trained tech can remedy this problem, this time!
If I were there I'm sure I could nail it down!

You need hands on service!
Bless You ,
ngafm,
Please give me a good rating before you sign off.
Thank you.

If the mullion heater around the doors is hot to the touch the inside temperatures are not being maintained. They should be warm but not hot. This usually indicates a problem in the internal temperatures. Check the back wall of the freezer section for frost buildup. Your defrost system may not be working and it had not gotten to the point of complete failure as far as you noticing the temperature differences yet.
