It's running hot most likely due to dirty condenser coils, they are the black coils located either on the back or under the refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator and clean them with a condenser coil brush, You can purchase it at any hardware or appliance store.

Will the very warm to touch problem with middle bar that doors close against on Whirlpool side by side also happen if you run it with the ice chute cover off overnight?


FRIDGE COILS or door walls SEEM VERY HOT:

The condenser coils do get hot. They can even be to hot to comfortably touch and this is normal.

The refrigerator should not run constantly but shut off with each defrost cycle.

Running constantly and never cycling off can indicate a cooling problem.

One thing to try is to wait till it has been running a few minutes then open the door and turn your cycling thermostat towards the off position. It should cycle off before getting to the off position on the dial.

If it does not cycle off then it's not getting cold enough to satisfy the thermostat. This is likely the reason the refrigerator runs all the time.

A thermometer in a glass of water can be used to check the temperatures in the refrigerator section.

You can check that all fans are running.

the reason the outer side of the door seal area is getting hot is the compressor is over heating, probably the condenser fan motor to your compressor is bad.
It should be a little warm but not hot. they don't use heaters anymore ( some older models still use heaters) around the doors, instead they use the condenser coils to remove condensation and moister, you might want to check your condenser coils on the bottom or back of fridge to see if they need cleaning
If the condenser coils/condenser fan are all plugged up they need cleaning and/or the condenser may fail or has failed..

The ones that use an electric heater will have an "energy saver" switch that will turn it off.

Whirlpool Side by Side. Husband replaced fan motor inside freezer. Ever since it's been replaced, it runs frequently and hums loudly. Any suggestions. He took the interior back out and it doesn't hum.


The fan blade touching the interior back cover????

May be the fan motor shaft is too long or may be he did not push the fan blade well inside into shaft so it is to much out. Thus touching the wall cover plate..????

Have a 2008 sportsman 800 with loud clanking noise on accelleration, very hot exhaust, and an ebs system that is very robust, any thoughts on these problems?


Addressing these one at a time: Assuming you have bought to service manual.
1) loud clanking is never good, whether speeding up or slowing down.
Check the oil level. Put the quad on an atv lift and rotate all the tires and look for any obvious defective drive equip, friction (something not moving right) or tire rubbing when you turn the handle bars. Use great care if you try running the motor and wheels on a lift and keep the rpm low. [In fact don't do this if you don't have the right lift and skills] The motor is attached to the bike via belt drives etc and you may need to disconnect the motor from the drives to see if its the motor clanking. At least disconnect the rear drive if you keep it in 2wd. Try to figure if a clutch or belt drive or something is off or dragging.
2) Hot exhaust: check cooling - this is an antifreeze - radiator system. If you are running it without cooling it will run hot, and probably break something in the engine causing a loud clanking noise. Otherwise, engine breaking is occurring from something pulling or putting constant friction on the motor.
3) An EBS system that is very robust. Putting all together, Something is dragging, sticking and hopefully it's not in the engine. If 1 and 2 didn't discover the problem, then you should take it to a dealer and have them service it, unless you are really, really good mechanic and wish to do a motor job.

My xbox 360 switchs of after 5 mins of playing what worng wiht it?


This can commonly be caused by overheating. If you touch the Xbox, it should be slightly warm, not hot to the touch. Are the fans running? Usually they will be very loud especially when the Xbox is hot. If they aren't running, or the Xbox is very warm or hot to the touch, you might have success by getting a cooler kit. They are extra fans that help keep it cool.

Runs constantly. Coils extremely hot. Breaker kicks out infusebox


It sounds as if the compressor is overheating causing a large current draw throwing your breaker. If the coils are durty on the back....clean them..also clean the coils under the frig by the fan motor.

Hi, It is the evaporator fan motor you are hearing. The motor is the only thing that shuts off when the door is open. The fan motor is located behond the rear panel inside the freezer sections.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
