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

Why is the outside of the fridge hot


A fridge works by creating a convection current by drawing all the heat out of the air in the fridge and transferring it out if the back, this can mean the back of a fridge can feel warm/hot to touch. If you are genuinely concerned about the safety of the product however you should contact the manufacturer and stop using the product.

Outside walls of freezer feel hot to the touch


It's usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.
Also clean the condenser coils on the back.

Freezer not cold enough...I tried cleaning vent for fan because it was filthy...I had a feeling the compressor was overheating....touched compressor, hot to touch....freezer started to get progressively...


sound like the gas has escaped so may be cheaper to buy a new one as the radiator on the back should be hot exchanging the heat from the freezer to the radiator & cooling the freezer!
hope this helps, but I say buy a new one as you could have other problems & end up spending more money !

Fridge feels hot to the touch between the fridge and freezer


I had similiar issues, I found that running a manual defrost cycle (Diagnostic test of the defroster) was enough to get the air flowing accrost the coils in the back of the freeer

Trio: humming and temp in freezer rising


It sounds like the condensor fan motor is seizing up. This is the fan that cools the compressor down. Does the outside of the fridge feel excessively hot to touch? Can you feel air being circulated under the fridge or behind the fridge? It could also be a faulty defrost timer. Try to identify where the buzzing is coming from and if it is the condensor fan you can put a normal standing fan behind the fridge, blowing onto the compressor untill the repairman can get to you.
