Hi, Have you checked to see if there is a frost build up in the freezer? How are the temperatures in the fresh food side or the freezer side? Check and make sure the evaporator motor is running in the freezer. Please let me know if you find any of these issues. When that area is hot, usually there is more going on and the temps are not right. Let me know so I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Usually when the outside of the refrigerator is hot, there is some problem in the refrigerant cycle. I suspect that if you reach under the refrigerator and touch one of the coils, it will be very hot, too.

First, look at the coils and see if they are dirty. If so, clean them good. Second, the compressor should be running properly (I assume it will be.) Third, make sure the compressor fan is turning. If this fan doesn't operate properly, the heat in the compressor coil will not be removed and transferred to the room air. It certainly sounds like the heat is not being removed from the coil since it is so hot.

If the compressor fan is not turning, you will likely have to replace the fan motor.

Kenmore refrigerator top door freezer surfaces are hot to touch.


Sounds like the mullion heater is on. This heater is used in very humid climates to prevent refrig from sweating in summer. Find the switch for this and turn off.

That is a heat strip to prevent condensate near the door seals and yours is possibly shorting out because the control fo it is defective.
