HOT SPOT IN FRONT DIVIDER BETWEEN FRIDGE AND FREEZER


Greg,
That is usually a heating element that is used to prevent condensation from developing in that area. It should cycle on and off and be slightly warm, but not get real hot. Check around your controls and see if there is a switch for something like Energy control or something like that, the exact term is escaping my memory, and you might be able to turn it off. Hope this helps!

Section between refrigerator and freezer extremely hot.


Check your owners manual troubleshooting. See if you find an answer. Please be more specific. Sounds like it's "stuck" in defrost mode, since it uses electrical heating elements to make the freezer coils melt ice off, but only lasts long enough to remove the collected ice. I would guess the unit runs constantly, or cannot maintain temperature. If the defrost cycle is not working there is a timer not working, or relay, or somehow a very rare short in the defrost system.

Fridge does not seem cold enough. It is maybe 12 years old. Do I need a new fridge


The heat between the doors is normal but not really hot. if sides and between the doors is real hot then you have an air flow problem. Vacuum coils under it and coils by condenser fan. Check your Condenser fan by compressor.

The left exterior side of the Fridge get very hot.


Hi,
On some units the condenser coils are built just inside the side of the fridge to save space....this will cause the side to become very hot...

Around Freezer case is getting real hot to touch. Some food is still frozen but some is getting soft.


This is usually the condenser fan under the fridge accessable from the back behind the cardboard cover. It should be running when the compressor runs.

Overheating, seals on Roper side by side are hot to the touch


Hi, When that strip gets hot, it is a sign the temperatures are not cold enough. Put a thermomitor in the freezer. You should get a reading of 0 to 5 above. If not, let me know and we can try and get you through this.

Thanks

Fridge freezer over heating and is not cooling fridge section


It is normal for the middle strip to be hot. Did you check the temp setting in the fridge section?
Also - you might check for blockage in the bottom. Excessive dirt/dog hair can block the air flow.
Good luck

Freezer gets real hot


It sounds like the defrost termination t/stat (located on the freezer coil) and the defrost timer have both been jammed on by the storm. A quick way to check is to locate the defrost timer (every model seems to locate it in a different position) look for a round plastic cover around 15mm diameter inside the fridge or freezer, remove the cover and rotate the timer clockwise until you hear a firm "click" then plug the fridge into the power & see if it starts (some defrost timers can also be located near the kick plate or near the compressor well) if the compressor starts (I'm such it will) replace both of these parts.

Cheers John.
