Make sure the condenser fan underneath the unit where the compressor is is running. If that's not it check for ice buildup behind the back wall inside the freezer .(defrost problem)

My Whirpool frig is almost too hot to touch on the outside of the side of the freezer. About an 8 inch strip on front edge. Any suggestions?


When the refrigerator is on, check at the bottom of the fridge to see if there is any air blowing out. If not, your condenser fan is not working and this will cause the condenser to be very hot and transfer heat around the outside of the freezer door. If the fan is working, try cleaning the coils. Although my guess is the condenser is running hot for some reason.

Frigidaire #FRS24XHA is hot to touch and freezes food on the left


Hi: Those areas are designed to be warm to keep moisture from forming there(Moulion coil). When they get hot it means the fridge is over working. The condenser coils remove the heat from the fridge. When clogged the heat will leave anywhere it can. The moulion coil is the strip you described,and will overheat when the condenser coils wont disperse the heat. Most likely the coils need a good cleaning, on the bottom of the ref. Use a coil brush and a vacuum. Or even an air compressor to blow the dust and hair out; plan on dusting the house too. Pull the grill off the front and clean them. If real bad pull the panel of the lower back and clean it out too. Since you work in detroit the dust and hair on the coils would be like putting a blanket over your radiator. Parts would heat up. I hope it's just the coils. If a compressor is failing you can get the same symptoms. I hope it is the latter for you, as I'm in your boat also. I hope this helps, Jeff
