Question about Hotpoint HSS25IFMCC / HSS25IFMWW Side by Side Refrigerator
I just realize that right in between the two vertical doors (left side is the freezer, other side is the fridge) on the fridge side, all along from top to botton is hot, you can feel it touching wih your hand, what is it causing this? Is it dangerous?
The center post gets hot because there is not enough air going across the condenser coils. Thy cleaning the coils. The other problem could be the condenser fan stopped or slowing down. Although some units have the electrical heater called the mullion heater, it usually will not get to hot. There is a yoder loop in most models today that is tied in with the sealed system. When the fan stops or the coils are blocked it will get very warm.

This is called a mullion heater and is perfectly normal as this heater prevents the area between the doors from freezing. No danger at all.
