Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Make sure the condenser fan is working all the time and make sure the condenser coils are clean. Also the fan and coils are running OK and coils are clean not too much frost build up on freezer coils.
If the refrigerator and freezer are both cooling properly then a warm (even to borderline hot) mullion is normal for this type of refrigerator. The mullion is the strip between the refrigerator and freezer compartments that you are describing. There are some reasons that it can be warmer than normal. The longer that the compressor runs, the warmer (or hotter) the mullion will be. If you just added new food to the refrigerator or freezer, this could cause the compressor to run longer. Opening the doors frequently can also cause the compressor to run longer. An air leak through the door seals on the refrigerator or freezer could also cause the long compressor run time. Check the door seals for cracks or loose spots.A failed condenser fan or extremely dirty condenser coils could cause the mullion to be warmer than normal. You can clean the condenser coils by unplugging the refrigerator and removing the bottom front grill. Clean any dust off of the grill. Clean the front of the condenser with a soft brush and a vacuum cleaner. Replace the grill when you are finished. Plug the refrigerator back in. You can check the condenser fan by removing the bottom service panel on the outside back panel of the refrigerator. If the fan is not running then this will definitely cause a hot mullion. This type of problem will normally need to be repaired by a service technician. Here is a link for the Sears Service website in case you need it: Sears Home Services . Be sure that you replace the bottom service panel on the back of the refrigerator once you determine whether the condenser fan is running. This panel needs to remain in place for proper air flow through the machine compartment at the bottom of the refrigerator.
