Where the two doors meet it is hot why?


Pull the refrig out and remove the rear panel . Check the fan there to see if it is working and the blade is not obstructed . If not working , and the blade is not obstructed , replace the fan motor . Also make sure the coils in front behind the kick plate are clean of dust , lint , etc . The cooling fan not working will cause the center door strip to get very hot .

Center of side by side very hot center between doors very hot whirlpool 25 cu. ft


If by the center bar, you mean the divider between the freezer and fridge sections, then the heat you're feeling is the built-in condensation heaters designed to keep moisture from forming on the exterior of the unit. These heaters also help to keep moisture from freezing on the inside of the door edges and in between the sides of the unit as well.

It's a normal function of modern, frost-free refridgerators, Some brands/models have an "energy saver" switch inside the fridge section that you can use to turn off the extra edge heaters, if you aren't experiencing excessive condensation forming on the outside of the unit.

Not all the heaters can be turned off even with fridges that have an energy saver switch, as the manufacturers engineer/determine where and how many edge heaters are needed to get the best performance out of their products.

With an energy saver switch, you turn it "ON" to actually turn off the surface heaters, and turn it "OFF" to have the heaters run constantly. Thus having it "ON" saves the energy that would be used to keep the heaters very warm. Some manufacturers have added electronic sensors to regulate these heaters, but not all makers have done this.

You should also clean the coils to help the fridge run better. As far as getting to the coils to clean them, if you have a long narrow crevice tool with your vaccum, you can try to use that to get underneath the unit to carefully get the dust out. I found that if you move the unit out where you can get to all sides, makes it easier to remove any dust on the back and underside of the fridge. Don't foget that you might have to remove the lower, back access panel to get at the compressor/coil assembly.

Just unplug the fridge first to keep from ruining your spouse's vaccum tool in the cooling fan blade, like I did once and never he-ad the end of it! (Not to mention the noise it makes - brought her running to see what I was doing!)

If that isn't possible, you can always use the blower end of a vaccum to blow out the coils, but it's a messy proposition at best. I've used a swiffer taped with some duct tape onto a long, thin dowel to get quite a bit of the dust the vac couldn't $uck out - I prefer that to blowing dust out as it's less messy.

Provided your fridge and freezer are cooling properly, you shouldn't have any issues with the warm center compartment divider causing you any problems.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

The divider between the freezer and refrig is very hot to touch.


Normal for that strip to be warm since the cooling system is routed right behind it for heat transfer and to eliminate condensation. Will be warmer with increase in room temp, but if it is a significant change you should inspect/clean the coils behind the panel in the rear of the unit.

Divider between freezer and fridge is HOT to the touch


That is a heat strip to prevent condensate near the door seals and yours is possibly shorting out because the control fo it is defective. Send me the model number for your Roper and I will look at the diaqrams to confirm my theroy.
