In every case I've been exposed to in this situation, it is a result of the units location. Hot air from the compressor and condenser coil moves across the unit and heats it. Usually the unit is stuck in a "Hole" under a counter where air circulation is very poor. Check this out.

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

Unit powers up, fans run, no compressor start

If the fans run we know it aint the defrost timer and you are getting power to the compressor so that means you have a wire done burned off one of the compressor terminals hopefully or ya might need a compressor. Probably just a burnt wire. These are pretty tough units. Diagram and run info

We have a Delfield 407 freezer that will freeze when initially plugged in, fan running, gets nicely down to zero. After the unit gets down to temperature, the fan does not kick in again and the unit...

You will need to replace the temperature assembly on the unit. If you can post the model number, I will be able to direct you to the parts you need. The model number will be something like "18648-BUC".

Kenmore elite side by side: hot divider

This is normal. There is a heater in this panel to stop condensation sweating between the doors.
