The fridge seal magnetic around the doors on both the fridge and freezer are extremly hot to the touch.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Your condenser coils are HOT so the front of your unit it HOT. Either the condenser coils are blocked with lint or the condenser fan has stopped running You can place a floor fan pointed at the bottom rear of the unit to cool things off and get by until you get any needed parts or complete the repairs but.. you need to find out what is going on in the condenser coil area. Lint or fan issues. One of the 2. Get rid of the lint, clean and lubricate the fan motor with turbine oil or replace the fan notor. Those are the remdies.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

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

The refridgerator door is not sealing properly and the magnetic seal between the refrig door and the freexer door is hot.


Heat the seals with a hair dryer and then pull it tight - strap it tightly shut - you can also use some super glue to keep it in place while it dries.

Replace seal


Take the door off. You will find a 1/4" screw every 3" to 5" all the way around the door. Remove every one of them. It amy take a couple trips around to get all of them. Before you attempt to install the gasket, soak it in hot water for about an hour (while you are removing the old gasket). This will soften the rubber so that you can work with it. After you have replaced the gasket and re-installed the door. Take a rag soaked in hot water and wipe it slowly around the gasket. This will warm it again. Now take Vaseline and smear a small amount all around the gasket. Close the door and let sit for 15 to 20 mins. Now take a dollar bill, open the door and close it on the bill so that a end of the bill is sticking out. Now pull the bill out slowly. The gasket should have a snug grip on the dollar. If not re-heat it then close the door so that the magnet will pull and stretch the gasket until it touches the box. Do this all around the door to insure that the rubber of the gasket has expanded and allowed the magnet to reach the fridge case. If you take your time, you should have no problem. Good luck

Fridge Condensation


Check the seal of the rubber gasket, if there are improper seal of the magnet, pour hot water along it to soften the rubber. (be careful when handling hot water). When the rubber is soften, try to stretch it a little by pulling it. close the door and the magnet will keep the seal in place.
