Hi Mr Hodjati,

No this is not normal. You have a failure of air flow in your condenser. I will explain how to repair if you wish to make the repair youself. If this is not addressed you will soon realize a reduction in cooling and a higher use of energy.

There is a fan that pulls air in from the lower right side front of the refrigerator grille located below the fresh food door, and exhausts the air on the left side of this same grille. Remove this grill and clean the coils with a vacume cleaner and a brush. Pull the refrigerator out so you can get behind the unit. Unplug the power cord from the wall. Next remove the screws from the panel behind the refrigerator near the bottom, the panel may look like a piece of cardboard, but it is a critical component. Once this panel is removed you will see the fan motor and fan blade, make sure nothing like a food wrapper or animal is stuck in the fan causing it to be stuck. If it turns free by hand (it will be real hot down there so be careful), then the motor needs replaced. If you send me the model number I can find you the replacement part number. Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: Unable to sufficiently cool freezer as of couple

check the coil to see if it needs to be cleaned and pull out the machine,if it's getting that hot the condenser fan motor could be dead.pull it out and remove the bottom panel in the back and make sure the fan is blowing and clean the condenser coil.the fan motr part number is W10124096 and it's around 85 to 90 dollars.if the fan isn't running you can stick any fan back there to cool down the compressor and get the fan motor as soon as possible,i've found mice stuck in the fan going for water in the pan or papers,if something is jammed in the blade hopefully when you pull it out it will still run but i think this is your problem,good luck.one more thing the model number you sent isn't the full number,you're missing a number on the end the model i looked up ended in 1 but the fan should be the same,you can open the fridge door,look up near the ceiling on the right hand wall and you should see the model number,if it's not there,look down near the bottom hindge on the fridge door,you might have to remove the bottom kickplate to see it,give the number to your parts store and they will sell you the correct part.

The middle part of the fridge frame where the side by side doors close onto is very hot to the touch. The fridge and the freezer portion themselves are working properly, but I just leaned on the frame in...


I had the same problem. I had just brush cleaned my coils and then it began. When I took the back off the fridge, I saw the fan was not spinning. I unplugged the fridge and then tried to spin the fan blades. I had inadvertantly bent a blade so it would not spin. I bent the blade back into shape and turned it on. The fan worked and very quickly the middle was no longer hot.

Panel between doors is hot


Many models of refrigerators have a heating element around where the gasket seals to the fridge. This is to prevent ice buildup around the doors that would prevent the doors from closing all the way.
If you haven't noticed any other problems with the cooling of your unit, you're refrigerator is running exactly the way it was designed.

Kitchenaid fridge #KSCS25INSS hot door frame


There are heaters located inside the door frame, to prevent your doors from freezing shut, and also to prevent condensation on the outside of the appliance. It sounds to me as though that is where your problem is... Hope this helps

Front metal , top heating element very hot


This should be OK. There are heat strips placed behind the door frame to prevent sweating around the door frame due to the metal being cold normally without the strips. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Side by side frame


It is normal for that panel to get warm while the fridge is running. There is a hot gas tube from the compressor running through it to prevent frost built up. If it's feeling a little too hot try cleaning the coils under the fridge. This will allow the gasses to cool a little more efficiently thus allowing the fridge to cool quicker.

There is an electric heater in the center which is called a mullion heater. If you have an energy saver switch on your model turn it to the saving position.
