Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
Model 63141. Everythings runs fine and is plenty cold, but I noticed the compressor was hot when I last cleaned behind the unit. Is this a fire danger? What is the correct temperature of a compressor? Thank you.
Refrigeration compressors used in domestic refrigeration are known as high side compressors, meaning the dome is at high side pressure and temperature.
As long as the condenser fan was running, and the coil was as clean as you could get it, then all is OK. There is no standard temperature that it runs at, and it has been tested to run hot anyway. The fact that you cleaned underneath will allow it to run a little cooler anyway.
