the heater in the gasket area is on when the unit is cooling (compressor running). hot weather makes unit run more, hence the heater is on longer and gets warmer. Coils under the unit being dirty or many door openings can also cause extra run time.

The problem may be low gas or it may be the thermostat is set too low. First, look at the possibility that you may have the food partly blocking an air channel which is where the very cold air is coming from.. Fridge side should read about 40 F after the door is closed for about an hour. If colder, adjust.

If you have already tried shutting off for 24 hrs. (reset), cleaning the under-bed condenser fins (vacuum and/or compressed air) and the issue still continues, you may be lucky enough to just need a relay/overload switch; the thingy connected to the compressor, which by the way takes patience and ease in removing. However, once the plastic cover is off, simply unplug the relay switch(s) and shake it, if you hear rattling (or) smell burn, the relay is toast and thus needs replacement. Simple enough, for replacement type in the model # of the compressor: (i.e.) [[ Embraco FGS 80 with relay/overload switch ]] cost around ($30-$50)... order, replace, re-plug, and if on target, the compressor will kick in. let run for 24 hours before adding foods, and all is good. Have a nice day. ee
