The hot frame is due to poor or no air flow across teh condenser coil located in the compressor compartment in the rear of the unit. pull unit from wall remove card board cover and there is a fan that should be blowing. while you have it pulled apart be sure to clean the coil. the jelly roll looking peice the motor is mounted to. if the motor is bad you can put a house fan blowing on it until you get a ne fan installed. thx peyton

Hot freezer frame


the freezer frame is hot because it is used to disipate the heat from the coil and keeps the door frame from condensations at the door gasket.

Exterior of refrigerator between freezer and refrigerator is hot to the touch


It is normal unless there is a lot of dust below your refrigerator blocking airflow. What you feel is hot gas tubes behind the surface of the metal to help reduce moisture around the door frame and door seals that will get hotter should the fan and condenser below refrigerator have a blockage of dust blocking airflow, Sea Breeze.

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.

Freezer door frame is extremely hot


The frame should be warm but not excessively hot. This is called an anti sweat heater. It's purpose is simply to keep the door from sweating under normal operation. It sounds as though this heater is going out. You may want to have it replaced very soon. Once it completely fails the freezer door will start to sweat and cause water to pool on your floor. Hope this helps, good luck!

The external metal frame is VERY HOT


Your condenser fan is probably not running. 99 percent of the time that you feel that hot spot it is from the condenser fan not running and the unit is not rejecting any heat

Side by side getting very hot on top left side of freezer and between the doors where the door liner touches the frame


Not quite sure about top left side, probably normal.
But the hot door liner is definetly normal, this is so the liner remains plyable and doesn't freeze to the frame.

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

Area around freezer door is very hot to the touch. ice maker works, but after awhile the ice will melt. freezer is freezing.


HI, That area being hot is a sign the refigerator is not cooling properly. We need to pin point the cooling problem.
First, are you noticing any frost build up inside the rear freezer panel?
Are the fans and the compressor running?
Please let me know so I can assist you through this.

Door frame around freezer door is very hot for a long time in side-by-side refrigerator/freezer


The problem you describe is caused by the hot gas pipe that runs around the cabinet, this is normal for it too get warm, the only reason it would be very hot is that for some reason the gases are not being cooled, probable cause is that the condenser is blocked with dust or fluff, depending on axact version some are located behind the plastic trim that runs below the doors and others are in the back behind the lower rear panel.
