SOURCE: the center of the fridge between the freezer and fridge is so hot you cant touch it whats wrong should I call a repair person ? thank you for any help

HI, this is a sign the fridge isn't cooling proper. Check and see if there is frost building up on the rear panel of the freezer. Check and see if the evaporator or the condensor fan motors are running. Check and see if the compressor is running.
Pleasae let me know if I can assist you fyrther.

SOURCE: hot center strip

when the center mullion is hot then it means your units condensor fan motor is out. the fan is located by the compressor. this fan keeps the condensor coils cooled off. if the fan is not running then the unit vents through the cabinet.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my side by side kenmore refrigerator, freezer isnt freezing

in the back of the freezer there is an "evaporator coil" .. that has many fine fins and is used to cool the air .. you dont normally see it because there is a panel bolted over it ... if the door was left ajar for awhile then ice forms on the evaporator and stops air from flowing thru it ... the result is that it cant cool the freezer properly ... if this is the problem then you can fix it by taking everything out ( use an insulated tote to store things or use a neighbors frig overnight .... turn your refrigerator off or unplug it ... open both doors and let it thaw out for a day or overnight ... put down towells to collect the melting ice .. you can even blow warm air into the bottom of the freezer to make it thaw faster but be careful not to overheat plastic parts .. once the unit is completely free of internal ice then it should start to work again like new ..

SOURCE: the fridge is hot the center deviding fridge and

Hi, welcome to FixYa.

I`ll start by letting you know first the heat between the doors is normal, yes...to a degree, and done by design to help prevent moisture along the "breaker strip"/divider.(where the doors come together when shut)

If all else appears fine (temp. Ok, fans running, no significant frost build up on freezer back wall) it's likely nothing to be concerned about.

**Just be sure the condensor fan isn't jammed and still turning.** The fan at the back next to the compressor...In fact that is what I`d look for based on your post.

But just so you know, the amount of heat can be determined by several factor's such as,

1) temperature setting - lower ( colder ) the temperature is set the more the run time the hotter the strip.

2) The ambient temperature - hotter the environment the more the unit runs to compensate, hence the hotter the strip.

3) The amount of "fresh" content added to the unit ( especially freezer section if unfrozen items added ) - new items add a lot of warmth thus demanding the unit to run more to remove this heat (btu`s or british thermal unit`s )causing the strip to be hotter.

4) Build up of dust & dirt on the condensor coils - this also causes the unit to run excessively which in turn makes for more heat on this strip.

These are all things which can and do determine the amount of heat between the doors.

Another factor to always consider is of course If it is hot where you live the unit may just be running more to compensate as with other factors I mentioned.

Hope this answer's your question and let me know if I can assist you further.


Thank's for coming to "fixya" and good luck moving forward.

Macmarkus :)

He said anytime the frozen food extends over the freezer shelf and touches the freezer door for a long enough period of time, the water line inside the door FREEZES!!

Water dispenser frozen?


You have a resevoir inside the fridge compartment that needs to be defrosted. It is frozen.

It is usually located behind the crisper drawers.

It is a small plastic tank that is white about 6 inches or so in length and bolted on to the wall behind the crispers.

A hair dryer usually does the trick in about 10 mins.

Freezer turns of in cold weather


Many residential refrigerator / freezers are designed to work at temperature considerably above above freezing. Most modern refrigerator / freezer have a single electric thermostat - located in the fresh food compartment. This lone thermostat will control the compressor to keep the fridge (fresh food) section at the desired temperature (usually between 34 - 38 degrees F). The freezer will get colder regardless of how cold it is already whenever the fridge thermostat turns the compressor on.

Now that you see how the thermostat works, let's look at what happens when the fridge is placed in an unheated space - like a garage. In winter time, the temperature can drop considerably below 38 degrees. If the outdoor temperature remains cold enough, for long enough - it will affect the thermostat in the fridge. The temperature inside the fridge could drop below 38 degrees, preventing the thermostat from telling the compressor to turn on. Meanwhile, the temperature in the freezer compartment slowly rises from the normal -10 to 0 F degrees. It will continue to rise until it is the same temperature as the fresh food compartment or until the thermostat in the fresh food compartment tells the compressor to turn on again. This means the freezer contents will thaw.

If the temperature in the garage is even in the 40 to 50 degree range, the loss of cold in the fridge may not happen often enough to keep the compressor coming on often enough to keep some freezer items frozen solid - such as ice cream. Remember, water freezes at 32 degrees F, other products may require lower temperatures to remain frozen, and could thaw at 28 or other temperature.

Good luck!
