Question about Refrigerators
Ok, you want to listen to see if the unit is running. If it is, the fan down by the compressor at the rear of the fridge should also be running. If fro some reason it is not running, you need to make a temporary fix as soon as possible. What you will want to do is to get a small window or box fan to put behind the fridge to make sure that you are able to keep the coils underneath cool.
Check the fan, make sure there is no debris caught in it. See if you spin it by hand if it starts up (don't trust it to stay running).
Make sure all the coils are clean if the fan is in fact running. Heat by the door is usually indicative of restricted air flow across the condenser coils. You will want to remove you front kick plate as well and see if you can vacuum it front the front also.
Reply back with your brand and model number and I will try to offer you some more insight.
