    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

Westinghouse fridge model number RP 432V-R it is leaking water out of the door appears to be coming from behind the salad crisper drawer where there is a vent


Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer, or leaks on floor

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.

Fix any gaps in the door seal.Pack out the seal underneath the areas where the door seal has the gaps. This can be done with a small strip of weather stripping, as shown here, or a bit of tightly rolled up paper under the door seal. Alternatively, you can heat the door seal up with a hair dryer to fix the gaps. This softens the door seal and allows you to stretch it.

Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick. Another trick one can use is to connect a copper tube wire with one end going into the drain hole then attach the other end to the heater wrap it around heater a few times. That will take care of the drain problem when it comes to ice build up but not food build up.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

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

Fridge door pops back open


The seal on your door may not be sealing properly, when you close the door the seal helps create a vacuum which keeps your door closed firmly, you might need to replace the door seal, you could also try leveling your fridge by putting shimmys underneath the feet, you might also want to check to make sure there is nothing sticking out of your fridge such as drawers or food racks that may keep the door from closing all the way. good luck.

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.
