By design these units either have compressor tubing (Return side) or have a heating element in these areas to prevent condensation on the refrigerator doors. However, on units where they use the refrigeration tubing for this purpose when you notice that it is much warmer than usual it is a sign that the condensor fan in the bottom rear of the unit is either clogged with lint or not running. UNPLUG THE UINT then you should first try using a crevice tool and clean the lower / rear coils and fan area. You most likely will have to remove a few screws to gain access to this are by removing the soft cover. Once you finish cleaning check the temps about 30 minutes after you restart the fridge. It should be warm but not really warm to the touch.

No ice.... refrigerator getting warm..... freezer also getting warm


here are a couple of things to check. First look at the back inside wall of the freezer and see if it is getting coated with frost or snow. If yes, you probably have a problem with the defrost system usually the defrost heater burns out first. Once you replace the heaters, all the excess frost has to be melted off the cooling coils behind that wall. A hair dryer works well for this. Another thing t check is the fan motor that is back behind that same wall. If the fan stops for any reason--- you loose cooling on both sides.

Describe your FFU2124DW12 Problem The freezer works very good and gets very cold, But the outside walls and top gets EXTREMLY hot


Freezers have tubes that run inside the walls and top of the case, these carry the refrigerant thru the heat exchange process, this will cause the outsides and top of the freezer case to get warm/hot some times, this is normal, but I recommend you to make sure there is at least 1 1/2" of ventalation clearance around the entire freezer so that it can exchange heat efficiently.
If you don't think the amount of heat present at the outside of the freezer case is NORMAL, then I recommend contacting Frigidaire directly and discuss this with there customer service people.

Interior wall of unit gets extremely hot


If you are talking about the wall that runs between the freezer and the fridge where the door gaskets actually touch. The answer is no. It should be warm though.
What can cause this is the fan that is located at the rear not operating or dirty coils under there. Check the fan it should be operating when the unit is in the cool cycle, if it is not then it will need to be replaced. And clean the coils. This will help.

My Kenmore 9 upright freezer feels warm on the outside, what could be the cause. I have defrosted and cleaned it already and seems to work fine. however i am concerned with the outside temperature. Please...


Hi,

This is normal. The condenser coils on freezers are typically located in the walls.

The refrigerator in your kitchen has condenser coils that are hot either under the frig or on the back. Freezers do not need as much heat transfer on the coils with the air so they put them in the walls, it is called a warm wall condenser. It may even feel hot to the touch if you happen to feel it near the end of a cooling cycle. It will be the warmest close to the compressor and cool off at it makes it around the cabinet down to the other side.

Upright freezer quit cooling, interior fan runs, compressor runs


The coils are most certainly there probably located under your unit. Clean them thoroughly. Look under and to the very top of that space.

Check for snow on the back wall of the freezer compartment, Air to cool the refrigerator is supplied from the freezer section. If the coil is frozen over the air circulation becomes retarded and the refrigerator suffers. Snow on the back wall indicates a defrost problem.
