If the door jambs are hot, that is either a dirty condensor or a dead condensor fan motor. Make sure the condensor is vacuumed and check to see if the condensor fan is spinning. It should be running anytime either compressor is on. You can clear the service light by holdint the "alarm: button for 15 seconds or turning the unit off and then on again.

When the door heaters appear hotter than normal it is generally related to problems elsewhere. Refrigerator and or freezer not cooling. Check your temperatures inside. Clean your condenser(s). Check condenser fan motors to insure that they are operating.

Light won't turn off - very hot and heating up


HI. This is the direct result of a failed door switch. This switch controls the actual evaporator fan, as well. This dysfunctional switch must be replaced, asap. This replacement will correct your issues. The switch will generally be loctaed or mounted near the door jamb or recessed near the the door and unit structure intersecting areas or closing points. Once extracted, it can be tested for proper functionality with a ohm/multimeter.

The freezer door jamb on Kitchenaid side by side model KSRF26DSA1Y0 is cracked and the freezer door is covered in frost and ice and not sealing. What is best way to fix?


If the casing is cracked its best to seal the crack with clear 100% silicone. You can get it at any hardware store. Fill the crack and then put clear tape over it so it does not stick to your door. You can also just lay a clear plastic bag across it and shut the door let it set for 8 hrs. good luck

It is common to be warm to the touch. If it is excessively hot then your door heater may be going out. Have a technician check it out. If this fails the doors will begin to sweat and drip onto the floor. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Shelf locators broken of the back the freezer on kelvinator impression series 500l


hi When a refrigerator gasket (usually a rubber seal around the door) becomes hard or cracked, its seal is broken, and the unit's efficiency drops sharply. Test the door gasket for leaks by placing a dollar bill between the gasket and the door jamb and closing the door. Pull the bill out. If it offers some resistance, chances are the gasket fits properly. If the bill comes right out, or falls out, the gasket is faulty and should be replaced. Test the gasket at several locations around the door. Before you replace the gasket, check the door hinges for leakage.

I have a Hygena Built in fridge freezer and the freezer is defrosting and the fridge is not coming


hi try this On the refrigerator door jamb, locate a small push-button switch. This component operates the light inside the refrigerator. If the switch is malfunctioning, the light in the unit may stay on, and the heat from the lightbulb can cause cooling trouble in the box.
Step 1: Check the bulb to see if it is burned out. If not, depress the push button on the door switch.
Step 2: If the light stays on, clean the switch with a cloth. Then remove the switch from the jamb. Remove retaining screws hidden by a plastic trim piece, pry the switch out of the jamb with a screwdriver, or pry off the jamb trim to expose the switch. Then test the switch with a VOM set to the RX1 scale 

Step 3: Clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal of the switch and press the push button. The meter should read zero. If the needle on the scale moves above zero, replace the switch with a new one of the same type.

Step 4: Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected.
