Question about GE Profile PSI23NCR Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. Inside, it works perfectly but i've noticed of late that the outside of the fridge (when both the doors are closed, the panel between the two doors) is extremely hot. Why is this and what causes it. Does it need fixing?
There are 2 or 3 things that would cause this. first make sure the condenser coils are not plugged with dust (vacumn or blow them out) next check to make sure the fan that cools these coils is running, (this is the most likely problem). if both of these check out ok then you would need to check to make sure your interior lights ar going off when the doors are closed as these will add extra heat and cause the center rails to run hot. last and most uncommon would be a freon system problem.
To clean the coils pull the refrig from the wall, remove compartment cover, and then you will see a round spiral shaped coil. the fan is located on the left end of this coil.
fyi there is a hot gas freon line that runs in between the doors to prevent exterior sweating. when poor or no air flow problems for the condenser coil exist it causes this area to become hotter.
One more thing. if you do determine that the condenser fan motor is bad you can put a normal house fan blowing on to the coil to help cool this area down until you can get the unit repaired.
If you need any further assistance leave me a comment here and I'll gladly get back to you. Thanks Peyton
