Turn your frig off as soon as possible! this is an easy fix but if it goes to long it can cause permanent damage to the compressor and then you have a huge repair bill, or a big piece of trash :(

What has happened is this:

There is a fan called the condenser fan that blows air across the compressor to keep it cool. This fan has stopped working for some reason and now the compressor is VERY hot. When this happens it stops running and you get zero cold produced.

The reason the mullion is hot is because there is tubing connected to the compressor that is run through this area for condensation prevention purposes. When the condenser fan stops working, this tubing gets much hotter than normal, and that is what you are feeling.

So, replace the condenser fan motor before the compressor gets to hot that it damages itself! If I can be of further help please let me know, good luck friend!

Most modern refrigerators have heaters around the gasket to keep frost and condensation from forming. What you're seeing may be normal.

Small amount of water drips down from back/center top inside frig.


it sounds like the drain is blocked in the freezer.unplug it,pull everything out of the freezer,remove the back inside wall of the freezer,melt out all ice with hair dryer,next you'll see a hole under the evap coil,that's the drain hole,you have to clear the drain line,i use a steemer to do this,if you don't have a steemer you need something that will blow through the line like a turkey baster or something like that,keep heating up the area around the drain opening,also you can heat up the ceiling in the fridge section with the hair dryer,open the fridge door,in the back middle where the ceiling and back wall meet heat up this area,this is where the drain runs into the back wall,when you think the drain is clear pour a half cup of hot water into the hole,if it drains you're done,if not keep at it ubtil you free it up.

The freezer door pops open when the refrigerator door closes


there was an service flash on some type of these frig's but the fix was only a small spacer on the frig door where the gasket meet the frame not a very good fix to save frustation try less force or then again try to gap the gasket a bit not too much to allow air to enter too much

no danger of fire, they(Whirlpool) run a copper heat tube through the center mullion of frig, to cut down on amount of undesirable condensation that may build up between doors, reason for extra heat can be from leaving door open too long, perhaps the coils under the frig need to be vacuumed,

There is an electric heater in the center which is called a mullion heater. If you have an energy saver switch on your model turn it to the saving position.

Door frame really hot to touch


Also clean the coils underneath the unit as far as the fan (condenser ) you can put a house fan on the back blowing to cool the compresser until you get a replacement. That fan runs anytime the compresser runs

Door frame around freezer door is very hot for a long time in side-by-side refrigerator/freezer


The problem you describe is caused by the hot gas pipe that runs around the cabinet, this is normal for it too get warm, the only reason it would be very hot is that for some reason the gases are not being cooled, probable cause is that the condenser is blocked with dust or fluff, depending on axact version some are located behind the plastic trim that runs below the doors and others are in the back behind the lower rear panel.
