Re: Refrigerator door is very hot
That should be warm not hot. It is a thermal break between the inside temperature and the humidity outside. It prevents moisture from condensing on frame of the door. Check for another problem such as is you freezer and refrigerator cool enough. On most modern models there is an energy saver switch which will limit the energy used by the heaters. Turn the energy saver switch on.

It seems you will need a service technician again. Be sure you got a warranty if you agreed to service your refrigerator. If you use the refrigerator correctly it will never go bad for less than a year and call for service repair. But if you definitely used it correctly, chances are the refrigerator you brought have a factory defect. I hope my advice help you.
No this is not normal. You have a failure of air flow in your condenser. I will explain how to repair if you wish to make the repair youself. If this is not addressed you will soon realize a reduction in cooling and a higher use of energy.
There is a fan that pulls air in from the lower right side front of the refrigerator grille located below the fresh food door, and exhausts the air on the left side of this same grille. Remove this grill and clean the coils with a vacume cleaner and a brush. Pull the refrigerator out so you can get behind the unit. Unplug the power cord from the wall. Next remove the screws from the panel behind the refrigerator near the bottom, the panel may look like a piece of cardboard, but it is a critical component. Once this panel is removed you will see the fan motor and fan blade, make sure nothing like a food wrapper or animal is stuck in the fan causing it to be stuck. If it turns free by hand (it will be real hot down there so be careful), then the motor needs replaced. If you send me the model number I can find you the replacement part number. Let me know if this helps.
Many models of refrigerators have a heating element around where the gasket seals to the fridge. This is to prevent ice buildup around the doors that would prevent the doors from closing all the way.
If you haven't noticed any other problems with the cooling of your unit, you're refrigerator is running exactly the way it was designed.
If a portion of the seal is slightly away from the door , use a hairdryer to soften the rubber , and it will pull itself to the door . Let it cool before opening , so the gasket will form itself . Go slowly , a hair dryer doesn't get hot enough to burn the rubber .
If this freezer is like most, the water going to the dispenser is looped around many times in the refrigerator section near the back. Make sure that this is still true. It must have a lot of water cable in the refrigerator section so that the water has time to cool down before it goes out the dispensor. If for some reason the water tube is touching either the compressor motor or another hot part of the external refrigerator it could cause it to be to hot to cool down in time during its travel through the refrigerator as well as it will start to warm up the refrigerator section as well.
Also, I am sure you have tested, but make sure that you are plugged into the cold water supply and not the hot water supply. Check the water at the connector and see what the temp is at that point before it enters the refrigerator.
My guess is that the coil of water tubing that is usually in the back of the refrigerator section has been either lessend in length or the water entering the refrigerator is too hot to be cooled down in time before it reaches the dispenser.
