Make sure the coils under the refrig are clean AND ( pull the refrig out and remove the panel behind the refrig ) make sure the fan which keeps the compressor and the coils cool , is working .

Seals on my beco are hot to touch fridge freezer feel warm


Almost the same post as my last. This is normal unless the refrigerator is not cooling properly. There is a pipe that goes around the door that carries hot Freon to keep the doors from sweating where the cold inside meets the warm air outside. This area will become extremely hot should the airflow below the refrigerator become obstructed or the condenser fan below the refrigerator not be working properly

Most modern refrigerators have heaters around the gasket to keep frost and condensation from forming. What you're seeing may be normal.

Exterior of refrigerator between freezer and refrigerator is hot to the touch


It is normal unless there is a lot of dust below your refrigerator blocking airflow. What you feel is hot gas tubes behind the surface of the metal to help reduce moisture around the door frame and door seals that will get hotter should the fan and condenser below refrigerator have a blockage of dust blocking airflow, Sea Breeze.

Very hot between doors


Warm in that area is normal because heated Freon travels around the door frame on most refrigerators because it prevents sweating between the cold inside of refrigerator and the cold air inside of freezer The problem of getting hot may indicate a defective condenser fan or the air below refrigerator is obstructed by dust. Check those two things and if you have any question I will be here to answer them for you. If helpful please rate this solution, Thanks Sea Breeze

My jenn air model # jrsi225 is VERY HOT between the side by side doors how can i fix this ?


Its only natural to feel hot on side doors of the refrigerator. There are heating element that responsible for heating the side doors. Without such heaters, side doors will get moist, wet to touch and then rust will eventually develop causing it to destroy or weaken the refrigerator body, if rust is not treated. You shouldn't worry about that cause that is not a problem.
Thanks for asking.

The external metal frame is VERY HOT


Your condenser fan is probably not running. 99 percent of the time that you feel that hot spot it is from the condenser fan not running and the unit is not rejecting any heat

My fridge freezer GR359SQ is making a constant buzzing noise and is hot to the touch round door area and the side.


The hot touch around the door area is normal. Buzzing sound can come from anything in and around the compressor. A slight bend of tubing can change this. Feel around the compressor while it is running and you may notice a change in the sound which is caused by resonant frequency in the routing of the tubing or mounting of the compressor. Hope this helps

Area around freezer door is very hot to the touch. ice maker works, but after awhile the ice will melt. freezer is freezing.


HI, That area being hot is a sign the refigerator is not cooling properly. We need to pin point the cooling problem.
First, are you noticing any frost build up inside the rear freezer panel?
Are the fans and the compressor running?
Please let me know so I can assist you through this.

Sanyo Ref heating/warming of the case and body


this is not a fault. some of the hot pipework is led across the sides and across the transom between fridge and freezer to prevent condensation

Door frame around freezer door is very hot for a long time in side-by-side refrigerator/freezer


The problem you describe is caused by the hot gas pipe that runs around the cabinet, this is normal for it too get warm, the only reason it would be very hot is that for some reason the gases are not being cooled, probable cause is that the condenser is blocked with dust or fluff, depending on axact version some are located behind the plastic trim that runs below the doors and others are in the back behind the lower rear panel.
