Divider between doors has extreme heat for side-by-side model

We have a KitchenAid refrigerator, model KSRI25FNSS00, with apparently a similar issue. It's a side-by-side model. The divider that runs top to bottom between the doors is very hot to touch, shockingly so ... probably 110+ degrees. This is a recent discovery. Something is very wrong.

Make sure the cooling coil is clean. Take the plastic grill off the front, underneath the doors. then clean as much as you can with a vacuum cleaner. Be careful not to bend or dent the coil tubing or fins.

We moved our refrigerator and cleaned the coils and now the coils are extremely hot and so is the outside of the fridge on the freezer side and on the divider between the the fridge and freezer.


The can get pretty hot. However you should check to see if there is a moisture control switch on that unit. Change that to the other setting and see what that does.

Sounds like the Coils under the refrigerator are extremely dirty and need to be cleaned with a brush in order for the heat to escape at the bottom rather than the door divider. you may need to purchase a refrigerator coil cleaning brush for a few dollars remove the bottom grill, it should unsnap by hand and start scrubbing and vacuuming.

How do you adjust freezer basket dividers?


We have a similar, though not identical Maytag/Whirlpool refrigerator with bottom freezer. My comments refer to our specific freezer, it is possible that there is some variance in the freezer baskets. Although it LOOKS like you ought to be able to adjust the divider from side to side, with our basket, you CANNOT. the key is to look at the spacing of the wire pieces that make up the basket body. On ours, the spacing at the center, where the divider is factory mounted, is wider than all the adjacent wire pieces. This means that in locations other than the center, the divider does not fit. We just removed the divider to give more flexible placement of items. To remove the divider I suggest first pulling the entire basket out of the freezer. Take your food out so you can turn the basket sideways, and you will see the clip mechanism that is built-in to the divider itself. You need to use a flat screwdriver or similar tool to flex the inner part of the clip back and then wiggle the divider until it pops free of the basket. Repeat process on the other end of the divider.

The center divider (between the doors) gets so hot you can't touch it. Other than that- it works and cools just fine.


ok that is entirely normal
that is your moulion heater, it is ment for two things
a. it keeps your seals soft and plyable
and b. it controls hot air entry to the unit when you open the door
it offsets the heat barrier with the door open,
that is what stops humidity from building up oin the machine

Compressor runs continuously, and center bar (heat dissipator) is extremely hot to touch.


Molly, The hot bar is a normal part of the sealed system (compressor) operation. The relay they told you about is on the back of the compressor and I would not recommend you changing that. The refrigerator is a balanced system, the freezer air removes the heat from the refrigerator side. If the compressor runs all the time, look for food close to the edge and not letting the doors close completely. Move items back. Don't over pack the freezer, the air must circulate. The refrigerator of today runs longer and uses less power that the old refrigerator. If you are still having issues with this model call a authorized Kitchen repair person in you area and ask how much they charge to come to your house and give an estimate.

Divider strip between fridge and freezer is hot


First take the grill off at the bottom under the doors look at the grate under the frig That is your condenser it will probably be covered in dust clean it off the see if you can fill air blowing under the frig there is a fan under there that keeps that coil cool and it runs around the door to keep condensation from build around the doors if no air is blowing take the back panel behind the Frig and there should be a fan running if the compressor is running this will also cause the compressor to over heat and will not cool as well but it might just need to be cleaned Good luck

Kitchenaid Refrigerator door gaskets are getting very warm.


When the center divider gets hot, it usually means that your condenser fan (the one that blows air across the coils under the fridge) is not working, or that the condenser coils are extremely dirty. Next time the fridge is running, see if there is any air blowing underneath. You probably need a new condenser fan.

Heat build-up


Had this same problem and turned out that the coils at back of fridge and below doors were covered in dog hair. After vacuuming, area is no longer warm.
