Remove the light bulb for a day.
If the area gets cool with no light bulb you will have to repair/replace the light switch near the door.
If it is still warm you will have tp provide more information to find out what is causing the heat.

Change light bulb in Maytag MAN1956GE Refrigerator. Can't loosen bulb. Can't remove plastic "cage" around bulb.

Hello Jane;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

What you have provided is the standard manual number not the model number. The model number is on a label on the inside wall of your fresh food section near the top.

You may have a single screw holding the light cover on.

Note; the bulbs in a refrigerator like all of you appliances is specially designed for the service. They are a little expensive $8.00 - $10.00 each. Some food markets carry them. If not Lowe's or Home Depot.

Go into the following link put in your model number and a diagram will appear to help you.

Why does the front frame get real hot aroune top and bottom doors?

In some units the condenser coils run inside the outer walls of the fridge and this area can get warm. If its really hot check the visible coils at the rear and underneath the unit they may be badly clogged with dust, which cause the rest of the system to run much hotter since the airflow to the lower ones is blocked off. Make sure you clean all visible coils at least every 6 months. This will also cut down on the energy use.

My refrigerator is 15 years old. it has a top freezer. has been a good refrigerator until a few weeks ago. the motor is a lot noisier and the area around the freezer door ( top and sides) is really...

The compressor may be short cycling due to a condenser fan stopping while the compressor is running. The heat you feel is coming from the hot gas cycling through what is called a yoder loop. The yoder loop is there to prevent moisture buildup around the door seal. When this area becomes hot it means that something is wrong with the cooling fan below the refrigerator and cleaning the area may help. Please be aware that the fan may appear to be running normally but keep an eye out after cleaning because a bad fan does not always stop all the way and I have made up to three trips before catching one that has stopped. Always unplug the power before attempting to reach inside the compressor area. Feel compressor top to see if warm, hot or too hot to keep hand on top. Again this problem can be the condenser fan, dirty condenser restricting air flow or the start components of the compressor are worn out or all of the above. Fixing this now may extend your refrigerators life another 10 years. If you have any questions I will be here to assist you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Kenmore refrigerator will not run when plug in

Look around door frame on fresh food side. I need a number like 321.258947 and may be near floor. Unplug and pull away from wall the remove the lower cover where the compressor is. Feel top of compressor to see if warm or just too hot to keep your hand there. I have never understood why Sears call 5561 as a model number. I will call this a request for clarification until you come back. Sea Breeze

The refrigerator and the frezzer stop working. I have power because the lights are working normally. Can i fix it.

Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm
