The strip between freezer and fridge is very hot

The strip of metal between the freezer and fridge on my whirlpool side by side is very hot. Also, the freezer isnt keeping things frozen and the fridge isnt as cold as it should be. The temp is adjusted to the coldest setting for both sides of the unit.

You have a defective defrosting strip. A hearing element that warms the side of the fridge to melt ice that collects. Your fridge is dangerous to operate. You have a possible short in the defrost system that can electrocute you. You should unplug immediately. I am SERIOUS.

My whirlpool reftrigertor side by side, fridge side is hot and the seals are extremely hot. I just bought it today at a tag sale, it is only a year oldm, what can the problem be?


If the cooling is OK specially in the freezer and the fridge, then you need not have to worry on much. If there is no cooling then the unit must be checked for failure in the sealed unit.
However you can select a NORMAL thermostat setting for the fridge /.freezer , set it lower than the present settings. Also check and see if the unit had the panels removed, if so the insulation of the heat exchange coils could have come off and it might be heating the side metal wall of the fridge.
The heating of the coil is quite normal as due to the heat exchange needed for the cooling.

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.

Front metal , top heating element very hot


This should be OK. There are heat strips placed behind the door frame to prevent sweating around the door frame due to the metal being cold normally without the strips. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Fridge humming and hot to touch between fridge/freeze (side-side)


It sounds like your compressor is going bad. The part you mentioned being hot is normal.

Fridge freezer over heating and is not cooling fridge section


It is normal for the middle strip to be hot. Did you check the temp setting in the fridge section?
Also - you might check for blockage in the bottom. Excessive dirt/dog hair can block the air flow.
Good luck
