Is the cooling fan for the compressor working? There is a coil of the condenser line that runs around the freezer side. This will get hot but the cold freezer side keeps it form not getting too hot. It could get very warm if the freezer is not cold yet.
It's usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.
check the damper vent door between the refrige and freezer and make sure its opening up to let cold air from freezer into the refrige,sometimes they freeze up and cant open and close when called upon to do so,if so deice it with a hair dryer,the side being hot is good telling you the compressor is operating correctly
ge has had alot of problems with the computer board that's in the back of the fridge.but first try this,open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing in there,if not you could have a bad evap fan motor,also touch the back wall of the freezer,if there's snow or ice on the back wall you have a defrost problem,you could have a bad heater or a defrost thermostat,also have you cleaned the coil on the bottom of the fridge?remove the bottom kick plate and vac it out,pull out the machine,remove the back bottom panel and vac that out,ashop vac works great for this vac out what you can and then blow out the coil and clean out any of the dust that you couldn't vac up.if the frame between the doors is hot that's one way of telling it's time to clean under there and when you have the back panel off make sure the fan is blowing back there.if everything looks good i would change the computer board,it costs around 150 to 200 hundred bucks.let me know what you find and if you need any more help let me know.
Hi: Its just a coincidence you noticed it then. It is usually hot. It's the reverse side of the refrigerant (the hot side.) If you lived in a humid area the fridge would sweat. Water would run down between the doors. I live in a dry climate so no worries. Older fridges used an electric heating element to keep them dry. They also had an energy saver switch to turn it off. As Whirlpool uses the hot side of the refrigerant they don't use additional power to run the heater. Actually the heater is called a mullion heater. Nothing is wrong with your fridge. I'll look over my shoulder for angry retailers. Hope this helps, Jeff.
Dont know about the noise prob. but I can help with the over heating cabinet. Your condensing coil is dirty and needs cleaned. it is located under your refrigerator or behind the back panel. You should use a brush and vac. it out. Air must travel through the tubing freely in order to cool properly. It should be easy to find following the tubes coming out of your compressor.
Hi. thanks for the question. the heat between the doors is normal . to solve . pull the fridge away from wall .remove back panel. clean all lint in coils .Dust in the coils causes the heat between the doors to get warmer . so cleaning of coils. will solve the problem thanks the appliance doc
is you condenser fan runnig at all. look in the back ot the unit and if you have a cover plate hten you need to either put your hand close to the opening and feel if there is a draft or if ther is air being blown out that is warm. If not then the condenser fan may be toast.
Condenser is in need of being cleaned badly or your fan motor to cool the condenser is not operating. Compressor is overheating. Removed the panel in back of the refrigerator and clean the condenser so air can freely pass over it for heat removal. Allow compressor to cool off before restarting it.
