Inside all around the door frame includes a low power heating element which is an electrical wire which is suppose to keep the door frame sligtly hot so that avoiding any building of ice so the door will stuck.
This element is control with a thermostat which is located in the electric control panel and it control the element avoiding from overheating of above aprox 50 to 55 degrees celcius. However it can go sometimes litle more luk 60 degrees. So I advice to proceed to replace either the element or thermostat only if it exceed the level of 60 degrees and this for a long time. if the heat it can not be too hot then their is not any problem for the fridge to work like this and save some money on service.

I believe your fan may be faulty. The fan sits between fridge and freezer right in between. When it isn't working or doesn't spin well at all, it gets overheat and causes the warmness.

Kenmore elite refrigerator


where is the ice,is it on the food and shelves or is it on the back inside wall of the freezer?if it's on the back inside wall of the freezer you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,timer or board depending on your model number,if it's on the shelves,door and food packages warm air is getting into the freezer somehow either from the door not closing or the door was left open,could have a bad gasket on the door,the ice chute door could be broke and not closing.let me know what you find and the picture shows a side by side but i'll need the model number too,if it's a side by side or freezer on the bottom the model number should be in the fridge section,on the right hand wall up near the ceiling,if the freezer is on top the number should be on the left side wall in the fridge section up near the ceiling.but with this hot wheather we're having if the door was left open this will happen,you can shut down the machine or unplug it,remove the food from the freezer and melt the ice with a hair dryer,don't do this with the machine running because the hot air will cause the same problem,after the ice is melted you can put the food back in and restart it.

I have a 23' free standimg dispensing side by side ref. my ref is not cooling but the freeze part is working


when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing?all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air from the freezer and into the fridge side,there are ducts on the bottom left side where the air return sto the freezer,if that's blocked the fridge will get warm,also if the fan is blowing depending on your model you could have a damper,it's in the fridge section up top where the cold air blows into,all it is is a door that opens and closes to let the air in when the fridge section gets warm and then it closes when it's cold enough,if the damper is bad it won't open and let the air in,sometimes it gets stuck in the open position and things start to freeze in the fridge section.if you can't figure it out send the model number and i can see what model you have,open the fridge door,look up on the right side near the ceiling and you should see a tag with the model number.good luck and have a great weekend.also from the bottom up in the freezer,remove the second bin of food and touch the back inside wall of the freezer,if there's frost or like snow on the back inside wall of the freezer you have a defrost problem,let me know what you find.

Freezer fan is noisey and can t find serial number


The number you will need is the model number. On side by side models there are a few places to look. 1- inside fridge on right or left wall. 2- Open fridge door and look up near the top front lip. 3- Open both doors and look on body of fridge under the doors. 4- Fridge door sometimes there is a sticker right when you open. Mostly you are looking for a silver sticker or silver plate. It gives you a model number and serial number. If you need further assistance please mail me back.

Were is the gas dryer igniter located


Depending on the model the gas igniter is located near the front at the bottom, normally on the left side but sometimes on the right side. A good indicator would be a small access door at the bottom of the machine either in from or in back. The access door is used to view the igniter.

    Not cooling properly


    first the freezer does all the colling for both sides the fridge control just opens a damper door to allow air flow from the fridge if your frezzer is set to high turn it down some and put the fridge on the mid point setting also in the fridge side on the left about halfway down is a vent make sure nothing is blocking it reply with your model number so i can see who made it as kenmore don't make their own appliances and we will go from there
