Unplug for five or ten minutes and do this. Take off the back cardboard protector and vacuum out the dust on the coils and especially the fan being careful not to bend the fan blades. Hardware stores also sell a bush for the coils. It can reach in places the dirt needs to be broken loose. Once you clean the dirt off it will run cooler. Caution, The fan blades are usually thin aluminum. Just be aware they bend easy and can be bent back into shape.

My dd lg refrigerator model GGL-478YSX4/2011 BEEPS EVEN WHEN DOORS PROPERLY CLOSED

Its telling u that the refrigerator setting should be lowered or raised. I keep the freezer setting on the highlighted setting and depending on the weather your refrigerator will beep when the setting is either to high or to low. If its hot and humid outside it probably raise one notch and if the outside temp has cooled then lower one notch. Just have to experiment. Good luck

It's not abnormal for the condenser to get hot especially in the hot and humid weather we've been having. Usually atleast some of the condenser coils are welded to the inside of the sides of refrigerators and freezers. Depending on how hard the unit has to work to keep it's inside cold the outside gets hotter.
I hope this helps.

Refrigerator gets hot on left outside

There are a couple of things that could cuase this and neither are anything to worry about.
One cause could be a heat strip to keep the outside of the refrigerator from sweating.
The other is the the condenser coils sometimes are run up the side of the unit to cool the freon and disipate heat.
As long as everything else is working properly I would not be concerned about the warmth. It is "normal".

Hopefully this will help you solve your question.

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Kenmore Refrigerator all outside body too hot.

I would say your compressor is running constantly and it is the heat from this that is making the fridge sides and front hot.

If it is that would indicate you have problems with either
1/ Your refrigarant is undercharged
or 2/ Your thermostat is defective

A stand alone refridgerator / freezer would tell you if it is keeping the correct temperature. If it is than a freon undercharge would be indicated.

Amana Top Freezer Refrigerator is hot to the touch on the outside on the sides by the freezer. Still working fine inside. Is something getting ready to break inside?

The problem was the fan. It was hitting the metal enclosure and had stopped working. We made an adjustment and cleaned it and now it works fine and the hot spots are gone.

Freezer side is hot outside

There is no problem at all. The outside of the freezer is hot because it is rejecting heat from the inside of freezer compartment to the outside surroundings, this is a normal refrigeration cycle. As for the seals being hot, this may be to prevent the door from freezing shut. i know that commercial and industrial freezers have heated seals for this reason.
