When this area gets very hot, it's usually because of inadequate air flow across the condenser coils under the refrigerator. Check to see if the condenser fan has stopped blowing underneath. Remove any obstructions or replace the fan motor if it has stopped. Also clean any accumulation of dust from the coils. The refrigerant line runs down the divider at the front of the unit to warm it slightly and prevent condensation and/or frost there, but it should not be noticeably hot.

Why wouldthe center piece between freezer & refrigerator get hot


There is a heater located behind that strip known as the mullion heater.
Look to see if you have a switch labeled "anti-sweat"

The panel between the freezer and refrigerator heats up - too hot to touch for a while then cools off again. GD5SHAXLT01


You need to clean the coils under the front of the refrig of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Pull the refrig out and remove the back panel covering the compressor . Make sure the fan there , next to the compressor is working . Usually , if this fan is not working , the center strip gets very hot , and the compressor may cut off , from getting too hot . The compressor can burn out , if the fan doesn't work for a while .

My whirlpool side by side front vertical panel is hot. What is my problem?


Clean the condenser coils in the back, or under the fridge. Poor air flow under the ref. will cause this strip to get hot. It should always be a little warm, but not hot.

Refrigerator door gasket pulls down and brakes off on top corner


Look it over and see how it is held in place. A stripped screw or bent clamp depending on what holds it in place is the most likely suspect.

A stripped screw get a slightly bigger one or shrink the hole with tooth pics or match stick.

Bent metal strip remove and straighten possibly bending a little more in the opposite direction. And sometime 1 metal strip may be put on upside down or turned around backwards and not holding. look for similarity in the way these type of bracket/strips attach.

If this helps please rate me as high as possible.Thank you for using fixya.

Fridge freezer over heating and is not cooling fridge section


It is normal for the middle strip to be hot. Did you check the temp setting in the fridge section?
Also - you might check for blockage in the bottom. Excessive dirt/dog hair can block the air flow.
Good luck
