    Same problem on my KSBP25FJSS. The wall between the refrigerator and freezer is very hot on the front face where both doors close against it.

    I have the same problem. The manual says its due to the exterior moisture control, but it is hot to the touch and I'm worried it may cause a fire.

    We have the same problem. Thought maybe the fridge was working overtime because we didn't get it closed properly.

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. 
Good luck.

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.

Freezer and icemaker freezes, jams.


I have run into this before and found it very helpful to re-level the refrigerator. By leaning the fridge back toward the wall about an inch helped keep the water and ice in the tray. Remember to remove items that block air flow in the freezer. Remove the ice bin and clean it then start over with the fridge leaning back a little. Hope this helps.

Compressor runs continuously, and center bar (heat dissipator) is extremely hot to touch.


Molly, The hot bar is a normal part of the sealed system (compressor) operation. The relay they told you about is on the back of the compressor and I would not recommend you changing that. The refrigerator is a balanced system, the freezer air removes the heat from the refrigerator side. If the compressor runs all the time, look for food close to the edge and not letting the doors close completely. Move items back. Don't over pack the freezer, the air must circulate. The refrigerator of today runs longer and uses less power that the old refrigerator. If you are still having issues with this model call a authorized Kitchen repair person in you area and ask how much they charge to come to your house and give an estimate.
