Ac don't blow cold only Luke warm and heater don't blow hot only warm what could it be help please


If this is a Ford vehicle it likely is a stripped gear in the blend door motor, which looks like a 4x4" box 1" thick held to the heater plastic box with three or four screws. This part can be ordered online for about $30 and is not difficult to replace on most vehicles.
The wires have a connector that is fairly easy to pinch and pull to release. The little motor box can be unsnapped and opened to view to see if the gear is not engaging or is missing a tooth before ordering the replacement. There will be grease on the gear so have a rag handy to wipe it to be able to inspect for damage. The identical cog gears are extremely difficult to find so don't waste your time trying to replace the little cog that strips out in these.

Well, that is were a heating wire runs to evaporate condensation at the seal. So it is normal that it gets slightly hot, but if really hot, then call for service

Kitchen Aid Fridge KSRF25FRBL00 - Hot Panel between doors


This strip is warmed to prevent condensation forming here during humid weather. Some models use a refrigerant pass of the compressor to warm this strip other use a heater that can be controlled by a 2 position switch in the refrigerator control panel that reads something like "Turn this on if moisture appears on cabinet exterior". If you have no such switch you should be aware that the strip is ALWAYS warm but barely noticeable until you develop a problem in the cooling system.

Check temperatures in the freezer (Zero Degrees approx.) and refrigerator (Approx. 30). If these are normal don't worry about the heat from that strip. If you find a temperature not normal you have the beginning of a cooling problem unrelated to that strip.

I have a 6 yr old Suberba. The center post between fridg & freezer is HOT and has been for several days. Any ideas?


That is normal and you may have just noticed that it gets warm or a little hot there. It is a heat strip placed behind the metal around your door to prevent moisture from forming around the door seal. If it was not there water would appear around the door on a daily basis, Thank You Sea Breeze

Ice smells and tastes baaaad, water smells and tastes baad!!!! I changed the line and it still stinks...please help...


Check all of this;

  • Remove spoiled food
  • Clean refrigerator interior with a solution of hot water and baking soda
  • Clean the door seals
  • Remove breaker strips and check for wet insulation

To remove the breaker strips it is important to bring them up to room temperature first. If they are too cold they will be brittle and may crack. To warm the strips you can open the freezer and allow it to come up to room temperature (wait 2 to 4 hours) or you can soak a towel in warm water and hold it against the strips to warm them.


Good luck:

Outside of refrigerator is hot - almost burning hot


The frame between the doors has a refrigerant line running through it to prevent moisture build up between doors (should be room temp. or slightly warm, not hot).
If that area between the doors is hot to the touch, you have two things to check: 1 - are the condenser coils under unit or in the back clean? 2 - is the condenser fan running in the back that is near the compressor running?
