Yes, this is the fan problem. Easy fix with either new fan blade ($2.95) or new motor and fan ($35) from partstore. Call them if you're not certain about what part. Good company.

Why does it get very hot around the door's perimeter?


The door is heated so it doesn't stick shut with ice. It may be that the condenser is clogged or the fan isn't running, causing excessive heat in the strip. Clean the condenser thoroughly and check the fan.

How to you replace the freezer door seal


is it a latched door, if so weather stripping (high density foam) is a good alternative, commonly used on edges of doors, believe it or not that is a door seal just without the cover to make it more pleasing to look at, it comes in various depths, sizes and is normally two sides adhesive. if it is a magnet strip type; pick a side and use it as a strip magnet surface or cover it.

Hi, Welcome to FixYa.

I`ll start by letting you know first the heat between the doors is normal...to a degree, and done by design to help prevent moisture along the "breaker strip"/divider.

If all else appears fine, temp. Ok, fans running, no significant frost build up on freezer back wall, it's likely nothing to be concerned about.

**Just be sure the condensor fan isn't jammed and still turning.** The fan at the back next to the compressor.

The amount of heat can be determined by several factor's such as,

1) temperature setting - lower ( colder ) the temperature is set the more the run time the hotter the strip.

2) The ambient temperature - hotter the environment the more the unit runs to compensate, hence the hotter the strip.

3) The amount of "fresh" content added to the unit ( especially freezer section if unfrozen items added ) - new items add a lot of warmth thus demanding the unit to run more to remove this heat (btu`s or british thermal unit`s )causing the strip to be hotter.

4) Build up of dust & dirt on the condensor coils - this also causes the unit to run excessively which in turn makes for more heat on this strip.

These are all things which can and do determine the amount of heat between the doors.
Another factor to always consider is of course If it is hot where you live the unit may just be running more to compensate as with other factors I mentioned.

Hope this answer's your question and let me know if I can assist you further. Thank's for coming to "fixya" and good luck moving forward.

Why wouldthe center piece between freezer & refrigerator get hot


There is a heater located behind that strip known as the mullion heater.
Look to see if you have a switch labeled "anti-sweat"

How do I change the headlight bulb in my 1997 thunderbird?


Access the headlight bulb from under the hood. There should be a clip (screw on or snap) holding the bulb in place. Carefully unplug the socket from bulb and remove clip and slide bulb out. Installation is reverse of removal. Be careful NOT to touch the glass surface of the new bulb, as the oils from skin can cause it to shatter when heated.

Outside of refrigerator is hot - almost burning hot


The frame between the doors has a refrigerant line running through it to prevent moisture build up between doors (should be room temp. or slightly warm, not hot).
If that area between the doors is hot to the touch, you have two things to check: 1 - are the condenser coils under unit or in the back clean? 2 - is the condenser fan running in the back that is near the compressor running?
