You need to fix the fan down by compressor as it cools the cond coils and causes proper orp of cmpressor . if it not running the comp runs too hot and does not pump the refergent and may be shutting of on overload . the high tempt between the doors will be less with fan working . but some warm tempt is normal .. mm

Hot between door side by side


Check your coils underneath first and make sure they are clean, next pull out the fridge and check the fan in the back next to the compressor. See if anything is blocking/binding it. If it is not running (while fridge is running) and not obstructed GET A FAN and put it behind the fridge to blow air across the coils under the fridge until you get a replacement fan or a service tech over.

Hello, we have a whirlpool side by side (estate...between the doors is very hot the compressor is so hot you'd have to have pot holders to remove it. the fan is running fine the fridge and freezer are both...


Check the condensor coils and clean them. The condensor fan may be running slower than normal. It is working hard to move the heat. The area between the doors has a line there purposely to keep it warm so moisture that condenses there when the doors are opened evaporates and doesn't cause mold.

Hot frame is mullion heaters. Keeps moisture from forming on door and causing rust. Sounds like the connector is defective, remove connectors and wire direct. If fan won't run then you need to call a qualified service tech.

The strip between freezer and fridge is very hot


sounds as if you either need to clean the coils under the unit,they are clogged and unable to disapate correct amount of heat, or your fan mounted behind the unit, next tothe compressor has failed..YOUR UNIT IS WORKING EXTRA HARD TO GET RID OF HEAT.check those 2 places

The fan on my fridge is working, but its not cold. Everything thawed out. Do you know wht this could be?


There are a couple things to check and do.. 1st check if your compressor is hot.. (pull fridge out, back bottom area remove to get to comp) if comp is hot possible refrigerate leak.. the other is capacitor (or hard start kit is needed)... unplug fridge and let sit for a few hours (like 5hrs).. plug back in.. you should feel cloud in the freezer area in 15min.. if not then, your possible problems I mention 1st.. hope that well do.. good luck.. mike
