No, this is normal. You can help the appliance be most efficient by leaving a couple of inches of free space around it, to allow the heat to escape.

Why is my Electrolux freezer outside walls hot


The condensing coils are embedded in the walls of the freezer. The freezer uses the wall as a heat sink. This allows the freezer to dissipate the heat that has been pulled from inside the freezer to the area outside of the freezer.

Describe your FFU2124DW12 Problem The freezer works very good and gets very cold, But the outside walls and top gets EXTREMLY hot


Freezers have tubes that run inside the walls and top of the case, these carry the refrigerant thru the heat exchange process, this will cause the outsides and top of the freezer case to get warm/hot some times, this is normal, but I recommend you to make sure there is at least 1 1/2" of ventalation clearance around the entire freezer so that it can exchange heat efficiently.
If you don't think the amount of heat present at the outside of the freezer case is NORMAL, then I recommend contacting Frigidaire directly and discuss this with there customer service people.

My Kenmore 9 upright freezer feels warm on the outside, what could be the cause. I have defrosted and cleaned it already and seems to work fine. however i am concerned with the outside temperature. Please...


Hi,

This is normal. The condenser coils on freezers are typically located in the walls.

The refrigerator in your kitchen has condenser coils that are hot either under the frig or on the back. Freezers do not need as much heat transfer on the coils with the air so they put them in the walls, it is called a warm wall condenser. It may even feel hot to the touch if you happen to feel it near the end of a cooling cycle. It will be the warmest close to the compressor and cool off at it makes it around the cabinet down to the other side.

New freezer from Sears, seems to be working okay, but the top and sides are very hot to the touch. I wouldn't think this is normal operation.


I don't know what brand or model of freezer you have but all of them have inside their walls a pipe with hot gas (freon under pressure from the compresor) or a heater to keep the outside free of moisture ,but if it's very hot it could be that the coil is dirty or something is blocking the air vent.

Freezer outside walls are very hot. Not maintaining temp


Hi, The walls are getting hot because that is where the condesor coils are. The condensor coils are where the heat is disperst that is trap as the coolant pumps through the evaporator coils inside. The fact that it is holding 0 degrees is a good sign. Is this freezer in a garage?
Check the door seals to make sure no heat is getting into the freezer other then when the door is opened.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Outside of refrig/freezer hot


Heat exchangers for rejecting heat to air are built into the outside walls. This is normal. Just make sure you have enough clearance for free air circulation around it.
