SOURCE: Warm to Hot molding that seals the doors

Either the fan motor has gone bad or the coils under the fridge are too dirty. Both will cause a no cool situation and cause this area to become too hot. Part of the coil runs thru the cabinet in this area to prevent sweating. This is a good indication of dirty coils or a bad/weak fan motor. If your fan was noisy I would replace it before it goes out completely. This excessive heat will lead to premature compressor failure.

Why would a brand new fridge make strange noises already?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFSS2614QS, is making a strange humming noise. Your new, high-efficiency refrigerator may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These sounds normally indicate your refrigerator is operating correctly. Some surfaces on floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more noticeable. This could possibly be the compressor that you are hearing. Modern, high-efficiency compressors run much faster than in the past. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
WP

Overheating ... the rubber edging on the doors is very hot


The rubber edges on the door are suppose to get hot.
some times the fill very hot. many people don't notice this. There is a small mullion heater plased around the doors so that the gasket will not freeze and the door will stick and not open.

99 Firebird still overheating after repairs and antifreeze


overheating is most likely a bad thermostat, but the coolant loss is a second big concern. Does the exhaust look like steam? You could have a cracked block and the coolant is leaking into the engine. Also check the oil for contamination.

Clicking, buzzing, compressor too hot, thawed out


Sounds like the compressor is in thermal overload. Let it cool down completely and meter the starting amperage on start to run. The compressor could be seized or it's windings could be shorted to ground (checking the resistance between the windings terminals on the compressor while unplugged will determine this.).

Refridgerator was never that cool now its warm


put a thermometer in the refrigerator and one in the freezer to see what it reads each day when you had the freezer open it it coses it to work harder like having an air conditioner on with the window open it has to work harder to keep it cold so by recording them temp to see if its dropping or it stays the same you might have to get it looked at but for just getting it a week ago it should not have hurt anything just leaving it open a little bit might just be normal for it to be hot i have a side by side and the side is hot but not to hot just warm. let me know hope that helps
