You have either a bad module or shorted resistor on the main control board . I would replace the board , which is behind the 8" x 10" panel , behind the refrig .

The divider wall between refrigerator and freezer is extremely hot


Condenser is dirty our the condenser fan not working. Remove back and check fan. If not working check voltage coming to fan. If 120 volts, replace fan. If no power, bad board, located far left corner next to compressor.

Freezer not freezing its bout 12 years old do u think a shot of frioen will work


Hello,

The first thing I would do is to check the compressor and the condenser fan. Remove the cover on the back of the fridge and check how hot is the compressor? Is the condenser fan turning well? Also check the condenser coil under the fridge, it is very possible it needs cleaning.
If the condenser fan is not working properly then it has to be replaced.
If the condenser fan motor is fine and the cleaning did not help then the sealed system is low on Freon and in such case you need a certified technician to fix a leak and to charge the system.
Good luck in solving the problem.....

We have a 26-ft Admiral side-by-side approximately 15 years old. It still works fine, except the door gaskets are getting hotter and hotter. This trips the breaker in the electric box. Is there a way to...


Hi Sandy and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Usually refrigerators use the condenser plumbing to create heat around the door gaskets. If your getting heat on the door gaskets that means that the condenser fan in the back is either not running or.... the condenser coils are clogged with lint. The fan should be running anytime the compressor is running. Since you said it is starting to trip the breaker.. I am assuming there may be a problem with the condenser fan being stuck or the windings have failed. Without a model number I can not pass you replacement fan parts information. I will say that the average person can change the condenser fan if they just take their time and pay attention to how it is mounted.

Remove the rear lower fiberboard cover:
Check the condenser fan... clean the condenser coils in the bottom rear of the unit. You can..... use and external fan directed into the back of the refrigerator while your awaiting parts to keep the unit going. All your doing is getting rid of the heat that the condenser fan would have done if it was working properly.

If directing a fan at the back of unit does not cause ther temperature around the door gaskets to drop your original assumption of having heating elements between the doors may be correct. Usually units that have actual heaters have an enrgery saver switch in the fresh food compartment that will turn off the heaters.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
