Seals on my beco are hot to touch fridge freezer feel warm


Almost the same post as my last. This is normal unless the refrigerator is not cooling properly. There is a pipe that goes around the door that carries hot Freon to keep the doors from sweating where the cold inside meets the warm air outside. This area will become extremely hot should the airflow below the refrigerator become obstructed or the condenser fan below the refrigerator not be working properly

Side of refrigerator getting really hot from top to bottom on freezer side about 1 inch from the door back. Also where the two doors meet in the middle, really hot. What can I do?


The unit has a auto defrost feature. Every six to eight hours these heaters come on to melt ice build up.The cabinet will feel warm to the touch during this cycle.If it is always hot, I suspect a stuck defrost thermostat

Ihave a Galaxy side by side and the center metal strip where the two doors meet and the magnets connect is very hot to the touch, any suggestions?


It's has to be warm to keep out the moisture, but not very hot .It will help if you clean (or blow out) the dust out of the coil in the back of the fridge (you'll see it at the bottom when you pull out the cardboard cover.Always disconnect the fridge before do any work.

That is called a heat strip. Used to keep moisture down around the door gaskets. You will need to roll unit out, take lower back plate off and check to see that the condinser fan is turning when compressor is on. If not,replace fan motor
