If you are talking about the wall that runs between the freezer and the fridge where the door gaskets actually touch. The answer is no. It should be warm though.
What can cause this is the fan that is located at the rear not operating or dirty coils under there. Check the fan it should be operating when the unit is in the cool cycle, if it is not then it will need to be replaced. And clean the coils. This will help.

This type of unit does not drain into the outside unit. It drains into a nearby interior drain, or just to the outside near Inside unit. If the unit is cooling properly, you're ok.

Possible flow sensor issue. Check to see if your water pressure fluctuates a lot or is fairly steady. These units are sensitive to the pressure. take care.

Plugged in refrigerator and it's getting really hot on side


I don't think fire is any issue. The unit cools itself by dissipating it's heat on its outside walls. For the moment, the outside is hotter than normal because the inside is also hotter than normal. Both will normalize after a while.

Ge 36" MONOGRAM with bottom freezer, very hot on back inside wall


Make sure that the condenser coil is not dirty. If so clean it. Have you actually seen the fan in the back of the unit running? It has 2 fan motors. One on the inside of the freezer and one on the back of the unit. The one on the back not working will cause it to get very hot and so will dirty coils.

Whirlpool side by side middle wall gets extremly hot


There are 2 or 3 things that would cause this. first make sure the condenser coils are not plugged with dust (vacumn or blow them out) next check to make sure the fan that cools these coils is running, (this is the most likely problem). if both of these check out ok then you would need to check to make sure your interior lights ar going off when the doors are closed as these will add extra heat and cause the center rails to run hot. last and most uncommon would be a freon system problem.  

fyi there is a hot gas freon line that runs in between the doors to prevent exterior sweating. when poor or no air flow problems for the condenser coil exist it causes this area to become hotter. 
One more thing. if you do determine that the condenser fan motor is bad you can put a normal house fan blowing on to the coil to help cool this area down until you can get the unit repaired. 
If you need any further assistance leave me a comment here and I'll gladly get back to you. Thanks Peyton

Kenmore fridge not getting cold


first thing to heck would be the condenser fan motor which is located int the compressor compartment pull the refrig away form the wall remove cardboard cover and inspect the fan motor that you will see. check for obstruction or if the fan motor is seized. if this motor fails it will cause the compressor to run extremely hot then shut off on internal motor protector. if you determine the motor is bad you can place a house fan behind unit blowing on compressor area to keep unit working until you get it repaired.
Thanks Peyton

If the mullion heater around the doors is hot to the touch the inside temperatures are not being maintained. They should be warm but not hot. This usually indicates a problem in the internal temperatures. Check the back wall of the freezer section for frost buildup. Your defrost system may not be working and it had not gotten to the point of complete failure as far as you noticing the temperature differences yet.
