There is a part of the condenser called the mullion loop that adds heat to keep moisture from building up and causing the door gaskets to stick. If it's too hot to the touch, first check your frige and freezer temps. You'll obviously know if the frige is too cold, but you may not know if the freezer is too cold. The freezer should be between 5-10 deg ABOVE zero. Any colder and the frige will have to work harder and would create more heat. Also check the condenser coils. If they are dirty it will prevent the frige from removing the heat properly. The condenser should be cleaned at least annually. Most friges have a condenser fan motor. Make sure the motor is running and the fan blades are clean. Most friges also have a cardboard type panel on the back at the bottom. That panel directs the air flow across the condenser and must be in place. If it's missing or damaged it will need replaced.
