Why does the rubber sealer on refridgerator door and freezer door get hot


Inside the frame is a warm bit of pipework, or sometimes a mullion heater, that stops the seal freezing to the frame.

Door seal between fridge & freezer is hot is this normal ?


No, there is a heater in the seal of the doors to keep the doors from icing up, if it is hot to the touch then the heaters are going bad and must be replaced. You can replace it yourself by removing the door seals, and then removing the heating element that runs the whole door. When you do this make sure that the unit is unplugged.

Kitchen Aid side-by-side refrigerator making dishwasher sounds


The freezer door frame should be warm where the door seal is located. This is to keep the rubber seal plyable and to prevent the door seal from freezing. Could it be that the cold seal is not properly mating with the frame and you are hearing the fan noise through the crack ?

Fridge Condensation


Check the seal of the rubber gasket, if there are improper seal of the magnet, pour hot water along it to soften the rubber. (be careful when handling hot water). When the rubber is soften, try to stretch it a little by pulling it. close the door and the magnet will keep the seal in place.

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.

Top freezer opens when lower door is shut


This could be the door rubbers, try boiling some water and pour it slowly over the rubber,it would turn soft and wold return to the original state.

now close the door and with a hair dryer set on hot,blow on the rubber untill it seals all over.
let the door stand close for at least 6 ours...

Let me know if it worked..

Good luck.
