We were told to clean coils..which were very full of cat hair!! Still didn't solve problem of hot strip between freezer and fridge.So pulled it out again today. Cleaned it real good front and back even put fridge on blocks, to get underneath. I noticed that the fan wasn't coming on..we left back off and turned on to see what was happening. Call repairman and told him the story and that the condenser fan hadn't came on at all. He said we needed ne condenser fan. Have one ordered, plus have left fridge on blocks and put fan in front of it. The door is cold and fridge is running colder. So will have kitchen torn apart until Tuesday when we get fan!! But glad to know it's a 85.00 fix on a 2200. fridge!!! Hope this helps!!

Hi, When that strip gets hot, it is a sign the temperatures are not cold enough. Put a thermomitor in the freezer. You should get a reading of 0 to 5 above. If not, let me know and we can try and get you through this.

Thanks
Vic

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.

Stripe between fridge and freezer is extremely hot to touch


It is 100% the condensor fan motor on the back. Its not two hard to replace. Take the screws off the back panel and remove. Then locate fan. Disconnect the wires going to the motor and then unscrew the scews that mount the motor. Take the part to parts store of look it up online. Then simply remount motor and plug wires in.

Kenmore elite freezer/fridge hot to the touch on the front.


I recommending unplugging the fridge, taking off the back panel, and at looking in there. I was having the same symptoms, overheating panel between the doors on our side by side. Ends up that a mouse was stuck in the fan and stalled it out. Fortunately (at least so far), once I removed the mouse and plugged back in, the fan started back up.

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. Send me the model number for your Roper and I will look at the diaqrams to confirm my theroy.

Outside freezer hot and seals


Fridge has either mullion heaters around door or most likely steel pipes just inside the skin of the perimeter of the door, this is to stop ice or condensation forming around the door seals, mainly the freezer, they are part of the condenser circuit ( hot part of the refrigeration system).
It is normal for these to get hot, but in your case may be hotter than usual because of the constant running, the running may be caused by hot ambient temperatures, system being slightly short of refrigerant, faulty thermostat or in-efficient compressor.
I suggest if temp is ok inside fridge dont worry too much, if you notice fridge starts loosing its capacity to refrigerate, have a refrigeration tech look at it.
