Either the fan which cools the compressor ( behind the bottom panel behind the refrig ) has stopped ( possibly something caught in the blade or bad fan motor ) , or the coils in front at the bottom behind the kick plate , need cleaning badly .

Inside the door panel


If you mean the area where the gasket is...yes.  This is a mullion heater designed to prevent freezing the gasket to the box.  It should be slightly warm.  Some units have the option of turning thi feature off.  Check your manual.

I have a side beside whirlpool refrigerator/freezer. today I noticed the strip between the frig and freezer was very hot and coil under frig are almost too hot to touch. It has been this way since about...


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,

Whirlpool conquest 2001 GS6SHAXKQ01 refrigerator side by side top part is not cooling


the first one sounds like it is slowly leaking freon.
  •  the second Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

My frigerator


This will get warm. If very hot check and clean coils in front, underneath. Also check fan behind rear panel. It should be turning when the unit is running. Also check for door not closing properly.
