    the body and sides are hot to touch



  • Margaret Zoltek Jan 22, 2009

    Have a HOTPOINT HSS25IFMDCC side by side fridge. Fan blades do not turn. Vacuumed/cleaned back compressor, fan, etc. Had a guy come out & he tried to replace the fan motor-but the blade still wouldn't turn. I have a FAN blowing on the compressor to minimize additional problems-any suggestions on how to fix the fan, or what might be wrong?
    Thanks!

    Hi Amigaman-

    Thanks for the FAST reply! I tried ALL of that. Even had a repairman come out to replace the fan motor. When he plugged in the NEW fan-the blades still didn't turn. Nothing was stuck in the fan blades-as they are turning because I have a table fan blowing on the compressor.



    Its a HotPoint Side by Side Model #HSS25IFMDCC



    Thanks Again!

Try pulling toe plate at bottom front and clean the condenser coils. If they are plugged, it will cause this to get hot. If you can't see coils in front remove back panel and clean coils there.. Give it time after cleaning to see if it helped. If no change, remove back panel and check to see if fan is turning when the compressor is on.
Also check for something caught in fan blade, such as a dead mouse or a dead coupon. If fan isn't turning, may need condenser fan motor. If still need help, give us a model number. Found in refrigerator compartment at top on side walls.

could be a problem with a dirty condenser or your condenser fan may be no good. That will cause the center panel to be hot and will prevent the refrigerator from cooling properly. Is the sides of the fridge hot to the touch as well?

Center support of Side By Side is Hot to the touch


Hi, welcome to Fixya. The heat between the doors is normal and done by design to help prevent moisture along the "breaker strip"/divider. 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. If not turning it can cause the unit to become extremely hot. The amount of heat can and is determined by several factor's such as, temperature setting - lower/colder the temperature is set the more the run time the hotter the strip. The ambient temperature - hotter the environment the more the unit runs the hotter the strip. The amount of "fresh" content added to the unit - new items add a lot of warmth thus demanding the unit to run more to remove this heat causing the strip to be hotter. Build up of dust & dirt on the condensor coils ( they should be vacuumed annually ) - 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. 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. Please take a second to rate the info provided here.
