Hi,

Many refrigerators run the hot gas from the compressor through there to keep condenation from building up....

A condeser that is plugged with dust and dirt cause it to be very hot....

Other units use a heat strip... If you have an "energy saver" button make sure you have it on which will turn the heat strip off...

Sometimes the heat strip will go bad... it should be self regulating..

Replaced freezer gaskets now not sealing well


Jay, Check to see if hinge can be adjusted so door closes tighter, may be a faulty door seal, or maybe it needs manipulated to soften, shape, stretch it to seal better. You can try the dollar bill trick between the seal and fridge to locate the problem/leaking spots. The bill should not pull out with out there being a little force, no force means seal is not proper in that area. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My refrigerator is 15 years old. it has a top freezer. has been a good refrigerator until a few weeks ago. the motor is a lot noisier and the area around the freezer door ( top and sides) is really...


The compressor may be short cycling due to a condenser fan stopping while the compressor is running. The heat you feel is coming from the hot gas cycling through what is called a yoder loop. The yoder loop is there to prevent moisture buildup around the door seal. When this area becomes hot it means that something is wrong with the cooling fan below the refrigerator and cleaning the area may help. Please be aware that the fan may appear to be running normally but keep an eye out after cleaning because a bad fan does not always stop all the way and I have made up to three trips before catching one that has stopped. Always unplug the power before attempting to reach inside the compressor area. Feel compressor top to see if warm, hot or too hot to keep hand on top. Again this problem can be the condenser fan, dirty condenser restricting air flow or the start components of the compressor are worn out or all of the above. Fixing this now may extend your refrigerators life another 10 years. If you have any questions I will be here to assist you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refrigerator side not cooling, but feezer is still freezing


DEFROST HEATERS IN THE FREEZER. IF THERE IS FROST ON THE BACK WALL INSIDE THE LOWER AREA OF THE FREEZER SECTION. YOU THEN HAVE A DEFROST PROBLEM. THE HEATER IS THE MOST COMMON. REMOVE THAT PANEL AND DEFROST WITH HAIR DRYER. THIS FROST IS BLOCKING THE AIR FLOW TO THE REF. SIDE. AFTER THIS IT WILL WORK FOR 10-21 DAYS WITH OUT REPLACING THE DEFROST HEATER. 95 PERCENT CHANCE. JUST REPLACE THE HEATER SOON AFTER DEFROSTING SO YOU DONOT HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN.

I am experiencing frost build up on the top part of the door as well as the top part of the inside of the freezer. all other areas are fine


You have an air leak. Usually right where you frost build up is, however since hot air rises, sometimes this leak can be anywhere. Make sure your door closes tightly and your gaskets are clean and making good contact. You may have to adjust the gasket, adjust the door, or replace the door gasket. If there is ice on the floor of the freezer, you have a plugged drain line. In very rare instances we have found, where the freon lines enter the freezer, in the back or under the freezer, missing or fallen refrigeration putty that seals around the lines. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Center front partition is very hot!


Either your coils are dirty ( clean from the front after removing the kickplate , only what you can get to ) or , the condensor fan motor is bad ( motor which cools the compressor ) .

Center partition wall of refrigerator is hot !


Sounds like your condenser fan isn't working...Take the back cover off to see if there's anything stuck in the fan blades. Usually when the fan stops, the compressor & tubing that runs between the doors get really hot. You may also want to clean your condenser coils.

Refrigerator door gasket


This area is hot as it is a mullion heater to stop condensation from occurring during humid days. New units use the high pressure line from the sealed system to do this. Your unit may have poor circulation causing the compressor to work harder as a result. Clean your condensor coils and make sure you have a bit of space so the air can circulate around the unit.
