when is the last time you cleaned the condenser coils the areas you describe are supposed to be hot there is a loop there to keep the door gaskets dry but should not be too hot pull the fridge out check to see if the fan is running on the compressor then unplug the unit and clean the coils the only other thin that will make it super hot if there is a leak in the low side of the system and has drawn air in see if cleaning the coils fixes it first and we will go from there

SOURCE: Center Column is getting Hot
My side by side divider/column was getting really hot to the touch. The freezer temp was at 8 degrees and climbing. Vacuumed the front grill but not much space to clean. Pulled out the refrigerator and there was all this lint clogging the grill where the compressor and fan was. Took the grill off and clean compressor, and the whole area was dirty. Before moving it back i checked the temp. and had begun to come down and the hot spot was not hot anymore. I will mark on my calendar to make it routine to clean it Spring and Fall. After all it's been 4 yrs. since I got it and my fear was scratching the wood floor under it so i procrastinated finally the husband gave me a hand with it. Thanks for having this info available. It saved me some money$$$.

transom between fridge and freezer is usually haeted to stop condensation when you open freezer door. suspect you have no fault

check the fan in the machine compartment...if the fan is not turning when the compressor is running you have a bad fan motor. this caused the youder loop to over heat trying to cool the condencer...hope it helps

Pull the refrig out , and remove the panel at the bottom , on the back . Behind this panel , will be the compressor and condenser " roll " coil , and the condenser fan motor . From your description of the problem , the fan motor in not operating , or the coils are extremely clogged with dust . If the fan motor is not operating , the most likely cause , is the main control board . You can try replacing the motor first , but , the board is most likely the cause . This is the electronic board , behind the 8 " X 10 " panel , behind the refrig also . If you remove the panel , and look at the board closely , You may see a burned part ( resistor ) . However , replacing the burnt part , will not solve the problem . The complete board will need to be replaced .
