Re: side by side

Theres a hot refrigerant line running through there between the doors to cut down on moisture. The more heat your freezer pulls out the hotter it is there... like when you move one and first plug in back in

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.

The doors are scorching hot to touch on my Maytag 2454. It's always been warm to touch, but all of a sudden it is too hot to even touch. It is in the center part of both doors, along the door seal area and...

It's usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.

I have a 6 yr old Suberba. The center post between fridg & freezer is HOT and has been for several days. Any ideas?

That is normal and you may have just noticed that it gets warm or a little hot there. It is a heat strip placed behind the metal around your door to prevent moisture from forming around the door seal. If it was not there water would appear around the door on a daily basis, Thank You Sea Breeze

Center front partition is very hot!

Either your coils are dirty ( clean from the front after removing the kickplate , only what you can get to ) or , the condensor fan motor is bad ( motor which cools the compressor ) .

Kenmore side by side model 106.55512400 inside frame hot to touch

There is an electric heater in the center which is called a mullion heater. If you have an energy saver switch on your model turn it to the saving position.

Fridge is getting hot in between the doors

This is called a mullion heater and is perfectly normal as this heater prevents the area between the doors from freezing. No danger at all.
