The condenser where heat is given off to the outside air around the freezer is built inside the outer walls. This is entirely normal.

My frezer is getting hot on the sides-why?


Its normal. The manufacturers got smart and put the condenser in the outside freezer walls. A lot of home refrigerators also have the same hot walls. Hope this helps good luck.

I have a Danby DCF520W Chest freezer. the compressor runs and the contents freeze but the outside case stays hot all the time. After a couple of days the freezer shuts down and has to be unplugged before...


your freezer may be overheating due to the defrost for the freezer door, (mullan heater) is staying on. Most likely the door is not sealing properly. Also if it has a power saver switch on the side select it to that.

The freezer is hot on the outside


Make sure the evaporator coils on the back or underneath near the compressor are clean. If there is a fan near the coils make sure it's running.

The front surface of the chest freezer is


Hi, can you put your hands on front of freezer, and check from 1 to 5 without getting burn? how long can you keep your hands on front of freezer? check from 1 to 20 and let me know, normally there's a condensate line, or part of condenser lines that passes through freezer body , purpose of those condensate line is to prevent your door gasket from freezing , especially during winter. It's normal for front of freezer to be warmed, on hot days it will be a little hotter, you said "very hot" makes me wonder how hot it is, put your hands on front of freezer, use number method and let me know, but it's normal. good luck.

Whirlpool WCN 17-8 chest freezer


If you have a older freezer you may have a refrigerant leak somewherein the system. These systems are fairly simple, they eather work or they don't. Most chest freezers do not have a defrost system.
look for an ice pattern on the side walls around the cabinet. if no ice pattern do the sides feel cold? If not were back to refrigerant leak. Appliances do not last 20 years as they use to, anymore your lucky if you get 10 years of use. Washers now start breaking down at 4 or 5 years. The chest freezer is not worth repairing if it's out of warranty. Cheeper to replace, try places like Sears scrach and dent
you can save good money if you don't mind a ding here and there. Hope this helps.

Believe it or not, but it is normal. Especially when just turned on. As the internal temp. gets colder so will the temp. on the side get cooler.

External Surfaces of Fridge/Freezer are hot


That is normal, refrigerators work by removing the heat from the storage area, thus making it cold. This heat has to go somewhere. Most of it is blown out the back but some escapes through the sides of the fridge.

Outside surfaces of freezer very hot to touch


it should be warm to the touch but not so hot you cant. and also depending on how long the freezer is running and how warm it is where the freezer is will effect how hot the outside is. the reason the outside of the freezer is hot is because thats how the freezer releses its heat from the refrigerant. the longer it runs or the harder it has to work the more heat it has to hive off. so unless the freezer is not cooling there is nothing to worry about.
