This is usually an indication that the condensor an has stopped working and is unable to cool the condensor lines and this heat is being transfered to the rest of the fridge .

Can this GE TFX side by side be used as an extra frig in a garage that gets very hot in summer


most (not all) f/f can be used in ambient temps from about +5C to +35C,but use a seperate thermometer to keep the interior temps at +5C for a fridge and -18C for a freezer.

The freezer seems fine but the other side is not very cool.


I had the same problem w/mine, Found out it was the timer. There is a timer on most fridge's that turn on a defrost lamp inside your fridge. That is why all fridgs are frostless now. They still freeze up, but a lamp will defrost them automaticly. When the coils freeze up, they wont cool the fridge side & but will still cool the freezer side. generally the timer is where the controls are, behind the cover.

Stripe between fridge and freezer is extremely hot to touch


It is 100% the condensor fan motor on the back. Its not two hard to replace. Take the screws off the back panel and remove. Then locate fan. Disconnect the wires going to the motor and then unscrew the scews that mount the motor. Take the part to parts store of look it up online. Then simply remount motor and plug wires in.

Overheating, seals on Roper side by side are hot to the touch


Hi, When that strip gets hot, it is a sign the temperatures are not cold enough. Put a thermomitor in the freezer. You should get a reading of 0 to 5 above. If not, let me know and we can try and get you through this.

Thanks

Admiral 23ADiW side by side fridge freezer


Is the back of the freezer section iced up?
If so you could have a defrost problem. All the cooling components are in the freezer section there is a damper controlled by a dial in the refrigerator that opens and closes.
If the damper is closed it will not allow air into refrigerator section. It is seperate from the Thermostat.
If the damer is opened to much you can start freezing food in the refrigerator section.
If there is ice on the back wall of the freezer section. It is not defrosting. There are 3 parts in the defrost process. The thermination stat, the heater, and the defrost timer or it's a timer on the electronic board behind the metal plate on the back of the refrigerator.
Good Luck
