The condenser coils do get hot. They can even be to hot to comfortably touch and this is normal.
The refrigerator should not run constantly but shut off with each defrost cycle.
Running constantly and never cycling off can indicate a cooling problem.
One thing to try is to wait till it has been running a few minutes then open the door and turn your cycling thermostat towards the off position. It should cycle off before getting to the off position on the dial.
If it does not cycle off then it's not getting cold enough to satisfy the thermostat. This is likely the reason the refrigerator runs all the time.
A thermometer in a glass of water can be used to check the temperatures in the refrigerator section.
You can check that all fans are running.
the reason the outer side of the door seal area is getting hot is the compressor is over heating, probably the condenser fan motor to your compressor is bad.
It should be a little warm but not hot. they don't use heaters anymore ( some older models still use heaters) around the doors, instead they use the condenser coils to remove condensation and moister, you might want to check your condenser coils on the bottom or back of fridge to see if they need cleaning
If the condenser coils/condenser fan are all plugged up they need cleaning and/or the condenser may fail or has failed..
The ones that use an electric heater will have an "energy saver" switch that will turn it off.: God is the reason I give you free advice so God is good!
Fridge FAN CONTINUALLY STAYS ON OR SHUTS OFF WHEN DOOR IS OPENED:
NORMALLY WHEN THIS HAPPENS U EITHER HAVE A DOOR CONTINUALLY OPEN ISSUE OR A BAD DOOR SEAL LETTING AIR IN AND CAUSING FAN TO OVERWORK ITSELF. ANOTHER CAUSE CAN BE DIRTY COILS AND CONDENSER AND LASTLY NOT TO COMMON IS A SHORT IN THE FAN SYSTEM ITSELF. A MORE PROBABLE CAUSE COULD BE BAD THERMISTORS OR EVEN COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT ( WHEN THE THERMISTORS OR THERMOSTAT DO NOT GET/GIVE A PROPER READING, THEY CAN CAUSE THE FAN TO CONTINUE TO OPERATE AS THEY FAIL TO RECOGNIZE OR REGULATE THE PROPER TEMPERATURE.
Check the cooling coils under the fridge..most likely need a good vacume ckeaning insufucent cooling/warming due to being clogged...remember your fridge has cooling and heating to control frosting up...coils need cleaning periodily especially if you are a pet owner...good luck.
check the condenser fan motor,pull out the machine from the wall and then remove the back bottom panel,you'll see the condenser fan down there,make sure it's blowing,also check the condenser coil,it should be cleaned out at least once a year.next time you write it would help sending the model number and brand name.good luck.if it is the fan you can stick a regular house fan back there to keep the compressor cool until you get a new fan motor,keep the bottom panel off and just point the fan at the compressor.hope this helps.
It's has to be warm to keep out the moisture, but not very hot .It will help if you clean (or blow out) the dust out of the coil in the back of the fridge (you'll see it at the bottom when you pull out the cardboard cover.Always disconnect the fridge before do any work.
Hi. thanks for the question. the heat between the doors is normal . to solve . pull the fridge away from wall .remove back panel. clean all lint in coils .Dust in the coils causes the heat between the doors to get warmer . so cleaning of coils. will solve the problem thanks the appliance doc
hi. thanks for the question .the heat between the doors is normal . its hot to keep condensation from running down the doors .but pull fridge away from wall. remove back panel and clean all the coils. very important. thanks the appliance doc
when is the last time you cleaned the condenser coils the areas you describe are supposed to be hot there is a loop there to keep the door gaskets dry but should not be too hot pull the fridge out check to see if the fan is running on the compressor then unplug the unit and clean the coils the only other thin that will make it super hot if there is a leak in the low side of the system and has drawn air in see if cleaning the coils fixes it first and we will go from there
