Question about Avanti 322Y Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

The top of my avanti mini refrigerator is hot

When I put my hand on top of the refrigerator, on the outside, it is hot to the touch. Is that normal? I just purchased it today and plugged it in and soon thereafter, the top of it got hot. I just want to know if that is normal or if I should bring it back to the store.

The return section of the gas cooling circuit is hot. Goes out cold comes back hot, so if that area has return lines behind it nothing wrong with the outside of a fridge being hot. Some fridges even have heaters built in around the doors and openings to prevent freezing up.

SOURCE: purchased an Avanti BCA5102 refrigerator

Hello.
The problem with messing with the unit at this point, is the fact that you would void the warranty. Did you try plugging something else into the socket to make sure you are getting power? If the socket it ok you will need to return it or call a factory authorize servicer.

The hot temperature that occurs in the fridge body is normal and you have nothing to worry. It is the result of the heat pumps during a normal operation. Once the fridges reaches the normal temperature it will automatically shuts off and the hotness of the body will disappear.

This is a sure sign of pending compressor failure (high heat and head pressure, Since that 2 inch section comes directly from the compressor.For verification,
Remove the back cover, and place your hand on the compressor.(careful,may be hot) should be able to leave your hand on compressor without burning.
Check condensor fan in that same area , It may be not running
causing all the trouble

Plugged in refrigerator and it's getting really hot on side


I don't think fire is any issue. The unit cools itself by dissipating it's heat on its outside walls. For the moment, the outside is hotter than normal because the inside is also hotter than normal. Both will normalize after a while.

Amana Top Freezer Refrigerator is hot to the touch on the outside on the sides by the freezer. Still working fine inside. Is something getting ready to break inside?


The problem was the fan. It was hitting the metal enclosure and had stopped working. We made an adjustment and cleaned it and now it works fine and the hot spots are gone.

My ge profile side by side bottom freezer is hot to the touch


is you condenser fan runnig at all. look in the back ot the unit and if you have a cover plate hten you need to either put your hand close to the opening and feel if there is a draft or if ther is air being blown out that is warm. If not then the condenser fan may be toast.
