Not cooling and the partition of 2 doors are very hot

I've noticed that the refrigerator is not cooling properly. I've tried to check on the switches and it seems perfectly fine one thing I've noticed, the partition of 2 doors are very hot. It's intolerable. EVen the texture of the ice coming out from the icemaker, it looks melted. I just thought this might be the reason.

Do you have any idea about this issue? Can you help me with my problem.

Hi is it normal that the middle Paleo that the doors close onto seems really hot? We have an American style fridge freezer, everything else seems ok, but I have never noticed it before!! Thank you


Again a similar post as my last. This is normal unless the refrigerator is not cooling properly. There is a pipe that goes around the door that carries hot Freon to keep the doors from sweating where the cold inside meets the warm air outside. This area will become extremely hot should the airflow below the refrigerator become obstructed or the condenser fan below the refrigerator not be working properly

The freezer freezes but the fridge is barely cool at best


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the freezer is freezing but the refrigerator is barely cooling on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# BFPH31M6LM. I suggest checking the following:

    1)Check to make sure the temperature control is not set too warm. Try turning the control to a colder setting. Allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize.

    2)The door is opened too frequently or too long. Warm air is entering your refrigerator causing it to run more. Try opening the door less often.

    3)The door may not be seated properly. Check to make sure that your refrigerator is level. This can cause the door to not close properly. Also, check the seal on the door and make sure that it has not been compromised in any way.

    4)Try not to put large amounts of hot or warm food in at one time. This can cause your appliance to be warm inside for several hours, until the food has cooled off.

    5)Make sure your refrigerator has not been disconnected. It will take your appliance at least 4 hours to cool down completely after power has been restored.

    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your microwave status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best Regards-

Check if it is still under warranty - I think that it is usually 2 years.

When in this condition, was the compressor still running ?
There was one issue that occurred occasionally on some models - the fridge door has a height adjustment so you can level the 2 doors up. Sometimes, it drops a bit too much, and on models with the fridge door light switch on the top (not the side), it meant that it wasn't turning off the light. Some have 2 lamps (commonly 40W or more each), so you effectively have 80Watts or more of heating running constantly. If your (exact) model has the door switch on the side, this is Unlikely to be the issue.

If the compressor was not running, I could say something like "it might have got stuck in a defrost cycle", but this DOESN'T really fit with the operation of these fridges (no defrost elements in the fridge side).
Does this help in any way ??

Kitchen Aid Fridge KSRF25FRBL00 - Hot Panel between doors


This strip is warmed to prevent condensation forming here during humid weather. Some models use a refrigerant pass of the compressor to warm this strip other use a heater that can be controlled by a 2 position switch in the refrigerator control panel that reads something like "Turn this on if moisture appears on cabinet exterior". If you have no such switch you should be aware that the strip is ALWAYS warm but barely noticeable until you develop a problem in the cooling system.

Check temperatures in the freezer (Zero Degrees approx.) and refrigerator (Approx. 30). If these are normal don't worry about the heat from that strip. If you find a temperature not normal you have the beginning of a cooling problem unrelated to that strip.

Center front partition is very hot!


Either your coils are dirty ( clean from the front after removing the kickplate , only what you can get to ) or , the condensor fan motor is bad ( motor which cools the compressor ) .

Area around freezer door is very hot to the touch. ice maker works, but after awhile the ice will melt. freezer is freezing.


HI, That area being hot is a sign the refigerator is not cooling properly. We need to pin point the cooling problem.
First, are you noticing any frost build up inside the rear freezer panel?
Are the fans and the compressor running?
Please let me know so I can assist you through this.

Center partition wall of refrigerator is hot !


Sounds like your condenser fan isn't working...Take the back cover off to see if there's anything stuck in the fan blades. Usually when the fan stops, the compressor & tubing that runs between the doors get really hot. You may also want to clean your condenser coils.

GE side by side not cooling properly/outside surface hot


please check the condenser fan motor. it is probably not running or the condenser is very dirty.

remove the rear cover and it will show you the compressor and the condenser fan.
if the fan is not running, try to rotate it manually and feel if it is sticking .

if it is, it may just need the old wd 40 lubricant.

tnx 4 using fixya,
