SOURCE: Hot panel edges

yup...the condenser fan is not running at the back or the condenser is very dirty.

remove the front lower grill and look underneath. see if there are a lot of dust and dirt accumulated in the font of the condenser. use a good vacuum cleaner to get to the dirt.

open the rear cover and check the condenser fan if it is not sticking up or if it is not binding.

use some lubricating oil on the bushings if they are.

the fan should come on as the compressor runs with out any pushing needed.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: wall hot between doors

No. The problem that you are having is the condenser fan motor in the rear of the unit is not functioning. You'll need to take the cardboard off the back, locate the fan motor and determine the cause for non-operation. My guess is that since it's new it's probably just obstructed. Hope this helps... Bill

SOURCE: 42'' monogram getting very hot between doors and in unit above

This is typical for frost-free refridgerators/freezers. In order to keep ice from buiding up on the interior walls of the freezer section, the manufacturer installs electric defrosting elements and extra "warming" elements in the outer edges of the cabinet, normally around the door openings to help mitigate any frost/ice build up and surface condensation that typically occurs on the exterior surfaces as the doors are opened and closed frequently.

These edge warmers stay very warm to keep ice and condensation from accumulating and will become VERY very warm (hot) when the fridge/freezer is in the once a day defrost cycle.

Unless you have an energy saver switch (GE trademark) inside the fridge section, which you can turn off, there is no way to disable these added elements. If you find that you're getting ice building up in the freezer, you'll need to turn off the energy saver switch to resolve that issue.

Energy Saver switch "ON" means these elements are off, while having the ES switch "OFF" means those heaters are running all the time and costing you more in energy consumption

SOURCE: center support is hot

Pull the fridge out from the wall , and remove the rear panel . Check to see if the fan which cools the compressor is running . If not , it will have to be replaced . You may can get it started , by turning the blade by hand , but , it will still have to be replaced as it will stop again . If it is turning , your coils need to be cleaned of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Also , the fridge has to have a back panel , so it will pull air over the coils and compressor , to keep them cool .

SOURCE: The inside wall between the fridge and freezer is

Good day,
Warm is normal, hot is not. There is an ant-sweat heater between the doors.
If the temperatures in both compartments is at or near normal, the causes are.
1. Behind the cover on the back bottom, there is a condenser cooling fan motor. If it is not running, or running too slow will cause this problem.
2. The condenser coils under the machine are dirty and must be cleaned. Just vacuuming the front is not always enough. Blowing out the coils is best, but makes a mess. Your call.
3. The BACK COVER must always be in place. It helps duct the air off the condenser.
P.S If you have an energy saving switch, select save energy. It shuts that heater off, but is not the solution.
One thru three must be addressed.

I have a Kennmore Cold spot Model # 57285791. The center strip where the two doors meet is extremely hot and everything in the freezer is defrosted.


2 things you neeed to check first of all clean teh coils underneath the refrig. then pull unit from wall and pull off rear compartment cover and see if the fan that cools compressor is running. it is possible the motor is jammed or bad. if the motor is bad you can put a house fan blowing into the comp compartment until you get it repaired.
