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.

Hot strip between doors


First , remove the bottom kick plate , and vacuum the coils . They have to be clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Then pull the refrig out , and remove the lower panel , to expose the compressor and cooling fan . This fan HAS to be working , to cool the compressor AND the coils . If not running ( fan ) , check for an obstruction of paper , insulation , etc , and remove the cause . If not being obstructed , and not running , replace the fan motor . Afterwards , be sure to reinstall the back panel , as this panel , helps pull the airflow across the coils , and compressor . The strip between the doors , has part of the coils behind it , and will get hot , if the coils in front are dirty , or , the fan behind the refrig is not working .

I have a 6th sense whirlpool 25.6 cu with water


First , remove the kick plate and make sure the coils are clean of dust . lint , pet hair , etc . Then pull the refrig out and remove the rear lower panel , covering the compressor and cooling fan ( evaporator motor ) . Make sure this motor is working , if the compressor is running . If the fan does not work , then replace it as soon as possible . This fan , cools the coils and the compressor , which if not working , causes the divider strip to become extremely hot , and could cause the compressor to have problems , due to the heat . After removing the rear panel , be sure to re-install it , as this is there , to direct the air flow as needed .

Molding around door is hot


The fan which cools the compressor , needs to be replaced or checked for fan blade obstruction . Pull the refrig out and remove the lower panel , covering the compressor and fan . Check to see if something has caught in the fan blade . If not and the fan is not working , replace the motor . ALSO , check the coils in the bottom front of the refrig , to make sure they are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc .

Water laeks into the refrigerator part of refrig from the freezer above. pan at bottom of refrig is dry. I think drain is blocked. how do i solve this for a whirpool model et18nkxjw00


you are probably right. the drain is located behind the back wall of the freezer section, under the evaporator coil. simplest fix is to remove the rear panel and unplug the fridge,prop the doors open and let it melt on its own, a hair dryer or hot water may speed up the process.

Refrigerator gets extra hot on top and side


The only thing that I can think of that would cause this is heat strips that are placed around the door frames to prevent moisture from forming around the doors. The way you have explain what is happening is an indication that the strips are out of control. If you can find the model number located on the bottom of the fresh food compartment door frame behind door get that for me. The problem is unsafe and should have your full attention until resolved. The parts cannot be replaced and can short out. If you have a local dealer or someone to talk to about the problem would be a good
idea. If you can find model number let me know. The model number above your post appears to be incorrect. Thank You Sea Breeze

DOOR JAM BETWEEN FREEZER AND FRIDGE IS GETTING HOT


This usually means that your condenser fan has stopped. That's the fan outisde (under or in back of) the fridge. It should be running whenever the compressor runs. Heavy accumulation of dust or anything that obstructs airflow could also cause it. But the most likely culprit is the fan.
