Mine is a Kenmore Coldspot. model #52559100 Serial #SL4336967. The entire door frames are extremely hot. It is coldish overall, but nothing is freezing. Is the cooling fan usually what needs fixed?

Check condenser fan, located next to compressor - is it running? If not - replace! Also check condenser coils - are they covered with lots of lint, dust and etc? If so, clean.
If the above mentioned do not solve your problem - unplug fridge, call a service technician.

My frig is extremely hot to the touch on the metal face that separates the freezer and frig. Any thoughts on what might be causing this problem. If it helps, we just moved the frig from another home. ...

Likely the cooling fan has died. This happened on my unit. The fan is visible from underneath on the rear left side. Use a flashlight to see if it is spinning. I used a broom handle to tap it and it started to run, which cooled the metal you found hot. I ordered the part on line and replaced it. Heating problem went away.

Kenmore coldspot ice maker quit

The first step you need to do is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed.
If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board. If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker. You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.
