    is it normal to stay hot all the time

  • Bramski Dec 28, 2007

    Maytag side-by-side, model RSD20A:



    I noticed a hot smell when I opened the door. Fridge and freezer temps appear normal and working; no ice build up or anything like that. But the centre strip between the doors is too hot to touch. Also, I noticed the perimeter of the entire fridge to be very hot. I pulled it out of it' recess and removed the paper backing covering at the bottom, to release as much heat as possible.



    After @1 hour, the top and back of the fridge are again cool to touch, but the center strip is still hot hot hot. I'm afraid it will melt the gasket.



    Help!

Theres a hot refrigerant line running through there between the doors to cut down on moisture. The more heat your freezer pulls out the hotter it is there... like when you move one and first plug in back in

Door seal between fridge & freezer is hot is this normal ?

No, there is a heater in the seal of the doors to keep the doors from icing up, if it is hot to the touch then the heaters are going bad and must be replaced. You can replace it yourself by removing the door seals, and then removing the heating element that runs the whole door. When you do this make sure that the unit is unplugged.

I have a 6 yr old Suberba. The center post between fridg & freezer is HOT and has been for several days. Any ideas?

That is normal and you may have just noticed that it gets warm or a little hot there. It is a heat strip placed behind the metal around your door to prevent moisture from forming around the door seal. If it was not there water would appear around the door on a daily basis, Thank You Sea Breeze

Center front partition is very hot!

Either your coils are dirty ( clean from the front after removing the kickplate , only what you can get to ) or , the condensor fan motor is bad ( motor which cools the compressor ) .

Kenmore side by side model 106.55512400 inside frame hot to touch

There is an electric heater in the center which is called a mullion heater. If you have an energy saver switch on your model turn it to the saving position.

Fridge is getting hot in between the doors

This is called a mullion heater and is perfectly normal as this heater prevents the area between the doors from freezing. No danger at all.
