Probably not. Newer (and I mean under 15 years old or so) refrigerators may run more % of the time than older units, but are using far less energy while running, so total energy consumption is actually less. The newest energy star models often use less electricity than a single incandescent light bulb uses if left on 24/7. If your run times are noticeably longer just recently, and there have been no other significant changes to account for it (like more and / or longer door openings or a warmer ambient temp., etc.) then you may have caught a defrost problem or bad door gasket problem early. The warm temp on the outer case near the freezer is to prevent condensation from forming in those areas, and is normal. (as a matter of fact, older refrigs often used low wattage electric heaters for that task, almost all newer units use waste heat from the cooling system to accomplish that task) Please don't bother rating this solution, as anything but a Fix-Ya lowers my overall score. Thanks.

There are about four different versions of your model. If you like I will send you the manual and we will work together as this refrigerator is very complex. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Refridgerator not cooling
That fan at the top has to remain on during cooling or you get the temps. you describe. To check this you need a voltage meter. Got to get to the fan and have to check if there is voltage 120v when it shuts off. If there is still voltage present when it shuts off then change the fan, if no volts when it shuts off then change the timer. need complete model cause this one may have an adapative timer.. i fixed one with the same problem last year.
