Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
Verical wall between freezer and refrigerator is extremely hot at front edge
I slid our unit out tonight and took off the cardboard cover and vacuumed the back area out. If you do this unplug the unit. I didn't see the spinning fan blades next to the compressor until after the vacuum nozzle touched them.
I then took off the front cover down by the water filter. We have 2 long hair cats. 5 years of fur had collected and was preventing air from circulating out the front of the unit. I vacuumed out the fur. I then took a short flexible rubber tube and hooked it to the vacuum and got as much fur and dust off the coils underneath the fridge box.
Once I had everything put back together and plugged back in the frame cooled down and I think we are OK. My guess is the hot air could not escape so it was gradually heating up the frame.

CHECK CONDENSOR FAN IN REAR OF UNIT NEAR COMPRESSOR. IF COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING AND UNIT IS COOLING SOME, CONDENSOR FAN IS LIKLY THE PROBLEM. IF THE CONDENSOR FAN DOES NOT RUN THE COILS UNDERNEATH AND THE LOOP THAT RUNS NEAR THE FRONT EDGE OF BOTH DOORS WILL BE HOT.
