When the center divider gets hot, it usually means that your condenser fan (the one that blows air across the coils under the fridge) is not working, or that the condenser coils are extremely dirty. Next time the fridge is running, see if there is any air blowing underneath. You probably need a new condenser fan.

Tip

How to maintain your refrigerator door gasket.


One of the most common problems with a Refrigerator is the door gasket torn and falling off.
I can't tell how many homes I have been in and seen the door Gasket on the Refrigerator falling off, especially at the bottom. Its a very simple
maintenance remedy that most do not think of or have ever done.
What happens almost always is that sticky stuff (syrup,jelly.cokes,
orange juice,etc. spill down on the lower door and gasket and then dries.
Guess what? When you open the door the gasket is stuck to the fridge
and it pulls the gasket a little each time until it pulls off.
Its very simple ,once a week or so to take a warm wet rag and clean
the gasket all the way around and also the ref base then gasket seals to.


If this was helpful please rate me.

My freezer on the french door model is freezing over. All of my food has what appears to be snow. Why


warm air is somehow leaking into the freezer or a common problem with bottom mount doors is they get left open and that's what happens,check the gasket or the door was left open.

I have a KSSC48QMSO1, The center panel, that divides the freezer from the refrigerator is hot to the touch at the top end and only where the side doors close together. Also the refrigerator is not holding...


could be a problem with a dirty condenser or your condenser fan may be no good. That will cause the center panel to be hot and will prevent the refrigerator from cooling properly. Is the sides of the fridge hot to the touch as well?

Broken water dispensing tube


you h ave a project in front of you. you are going to have to remove the door entirely from the cabinet, including electrical and water line connections. you will then have to remove the inner door liner and gasket, to access behind the dispenser module. you will need to pull the line out from the bottom, carefully, and replace with new water line, then replace gasket and liner, and reattach door.

Good luck.

Kitchen aid top shelf warm


  1. check gasket
  2. check the light switch on top of the refrig. section. If then pushed the switch turns the light off, but the light is still on with the fridge door closed - door needs adjustment.

Kitchenaid Side by side refrigerator/freezer


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
