    Thanks. Just checked and the fan is not moving. Is it a fan problem or something else? Is it easy to order and replace the fan? Thanks again.

The beam in middle of refridgerator where both doors rest against while closed is too hot to touch


Is the cooling fan for the compressor working? There is a coil of the condenser line that runs around the freezer side. This will get hot but the cold freezer side keeps it form not getting too hot. It could get very warm if the freezer is not cold yet.

Front metal , top heating element very hot


This should be OK. There are heat strips placed behind the door frame to prevent sweating around the door frame due to the metal being cold normally without the strips. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refrig is hot to touch


Hi, Have you checked to see if there is a frost build up in the freezer? How are the temperatures in the fresh food side or the freezer side? Check and make sure the evaporator motor is running in the freezer. Please let me know if you find any of these issues. When that area is hot, usually there is more going on and the temps are not right. Let me know so I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Outside of refrigerator is hot - almost burning hot


The frame between the doors has a refrigerant line running through it to prevent moisture build up between doors (should be room temp. or slightly warm, not hot).
If that area between the doors is hot to the touch, you have two things to check: 1 - are the condenser coils under unit or in the back clean? 2 - is the condenser fan running in the back that is near the compressor running?

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.
