Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator 1999

Hello, Maybe you can help me to find out what is wrong with my refrigerator (Kenmore 1999). Few months ago I paid attention that the front surface of the vertical panel that separates a fridge section and the main refrigerator camera is very hot. Literally you can not hold your hand on this surface even a 15 sec. I assume it's something wrong with my refrigerator. Please advice what should I do? Thanks, Vlad

It is normal for that to be warm but not hot. you need to make sure that the condensor coils under the refrigerator is free of dust. You can get to it by removing the back cover and clean it with a vacume. Also make sure the fan at the compressor is operating. and also clean the fan blades while your there. Doing this and making sure the fan is working should solve your problem. Also in the summer time when its hot and humid the refrigerator has to work longer and harder to keep it cold. so you may notice the front just a little warmer then usual, but it should not be hot that you cant touch it. God luck

Hello, I can help you.
The thermostat cycles the refrigerator on and off. The refrigerator normally runs as long as the temperature inside the refrigerator is higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough and the thermostat still does not cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it, because it cannot be repaired. If the thermostat is not defective, you may have a problem with the sealed (refrigerant) system, in which case you should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

I may need you ask you to do or answer a few question as we try to resolve the problem with your refrigerator. After trying to move fridge a few feet did you lay it down on side? Are lights on interior working? Is receptacle that you plugged the fridge into working properly? Have you changed the t-stat settings? Please check your model number again because I am unable to pull it up. Thanks, Sea Breeze
