Kenmore refrigerator The panel in between the two doors is heating up. The door seals are warm to the touch. The water dispenser gives very hot water when first turned on. The ice maker is not producing correctly. Both the freezer and fridge are not as cool as they are normally. The freezer is not even completely freezing anything new put in, not even over night!

Hi fperry74,

please look at the back bottom part of the refigerator , if you could see a small condenser fan there. it might not be running or running very slow. correct that problem then.

that is why your panel is very hot because a condenser line passes thru that panel and if the fan is not running, then the temperature gets very hot.

the efficiency of the fridge is also affected.

i hope i was able to solve your problem.

pls rate me.
tnx

Samsung RS2530BSH front corners and sides of the cabinet abnormally hot.


One some newer refrigerators, the manufacturer runs a loop of refrigerant tubing up and around the corners of the door seal area. While the refrigerator is running, this tubing will get somewhat warm--even hot if the room temp is hot like in summer. What this tubing and heat does is keep the door seal areas from sweating like a glass of water with ice cubes in it. If it is extremely hot, too hot to touch I would call for service and have it checked out. Some heat is normal.

Elite trio, 795.755 Refrigerator light stays on, getting hot. Refrigerator space warming up to 45 degrees. Pressing in both door switches gives no clue. Both feel smooth.


Some of these Kenmore Elite refrigerators built by LG have a design defect that has been the subject of a class action settlement. The interior lights stay on even if the doors are shut, turning the refrigerator interior into a version of the child's Easy Bake oven toy. There are many cases where plastic interior parts of the refrigerator got so hot they melted. I replaced the 60W incandescent bulbs with 7 Watt LED bulbs just in case. The LED bulbs will not get hot enough to harm anything even if left on indefinitely.
This model also has problems with the wires inside the door (water dispenser side) The wires break inside the door and are not replaceable. I ran new wires through the interior and bypassed the broken wires to avoid buying a whole new door.

I have a Kenmore 18 refrigerator (freezer on top). When we open the refrigerator door, water drips down from the inside door panel.


Hello
Check you door and door gasket to make sure you have a good seal. What happens is warm air and moisture is getting in and condensing on the panel. I hope this helps. Please leave feedback. Thanks

Door seal between fridge & freezer is hot is this normal ?


No, there is a heater in the seal of the doors to keep the doors from icing up, if it is hot to the touch then the heaters are going bad and must be replaced. You can replace it yourself by removing the door seals, and then removing the heating element that runs the whole door. When you do this make sure that the unit is unplugged.

Water leaking from the roof of the fridge inside.


That is condensation. The rubber insulator (gasket) on the door may be damaged or worn. The door does not close and seal properly.
Make sure that nothing that is on top of the refrigerator is "hanging" into the path of the door seal (like a bread bag ponytail).

Also to consider:
Door hinge is loose so that door is not aligned for proper door seal.
Refrigerator is not "level" so that door is not ...
Freezer is defrosting (heating elements will warm up the coils, so "dew point temperature" may have been reached.

Check the door gaskets.

Water comes out of dispenser without touching the lever


Your inlet valve must be getting weak and not sealing correctly. the inlet valve is where the water line ties in rear. replace it for the fix.
