Check the fan which cools the compressor ( condensor fan motor ) . You need to pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel to check . Also , make sure the coils under the refrig , are clean of dust , lint , etc . If this fan motor stops , the center strip and the condensor coils will get very hot and the compressor will also get very hot . Not good for the compressor as it could help burning it out .

You have the power adjust, summer controls, whatever its called for your model, and manufacture
but its normal, this is the YODA LOOP
or the MULLIAN htr.....
it is very normal for it to be hot to the touch, this is actually the heat that is being withdrawn from your box, in the older models, unless the paint is flaking i would not be overly concerned

Why is my maytag msd2657he freezer hot?


That is an interesting question. Hot is a subjective term; are you referring to the inside or outside of the unit. I am not sure but I believe the condenser is part of the outer shell hence it will get warm when operating. Check the thermostat setting in the freezer, it is possible it is off. I wish I could be more help.

The top & sides of freezer outer housing getting quiet hot,but only near the door,ps-have the red light alert & rest seems ok,so going to try the defrost stuff.


If you remove the rear panel inside the freezer and examine the evaporator while running you will most times see a few rows of the evaporator with clear ice and the rest will be sweating water droplets. That is what a leak in the Freon will cause and look like. When the door frame gets hot it is sometimes caused by a defective condenser fan or blocked air flow and also reduce cooling. Warm is normal around door frame because you have hot gas flowing there to reduce sweating around doors. I will be here to answer any questions you may have, Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer outer shell is hot


If the outside is hot, it is because the condenser is in the skin. It dissipates the heat from the inside and is nothing to worry about. Check all the workings are clean.

Outside of freezer is hot to touch


Hi


If the unit was off for a while then more heat is inside the freezer after having it off for a while. That heat gets moved out to your condenser coil. Most freezers today don't have fans to force that heat to the outside air, they run that heat through the outer cabinet and it naturally travels to the cooler surrounding air. If there is no rear cover and no fan motor near that compressor this is how yours is designed. Just give it sometime and it should be fine. However it should be warm to the touch but not so hot you can't. And also depending on how long the freezer is running and how warm it is where the freezer is will affect how hot the outside is. The reason the outside of the freezer is hot is because that's how the freezer releases its heat from the refrigerant. The longer it runs or the harder it has to work the more heat it has to hive off. So unless the freezer is not cooling there is nothing to worry about.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Water in refridgerator interior


You have a plugged drain in the freezer. Unplug and remove back panel in freezer. Under the evaporator there will be ice, thaw with hairdryer or steamer. There is a hole under the ice, that is the drain. Flush with hot water until it drains into outer pan. It may take awhile to get drain cleared.

Refrigerator not cooling


Check to see if your condenser fan is running and not jammed or obstructed. That's the fan which pulls air under the unit and across the condenser coils. Can you feel air movement down there? If it isn't running, then it needs to be replaced. This can cause the hot divider between compartments and generally poor performance because the coils can't get rid of the heat..
