We had this same problem. It was due to dog and cat hair that had become trapped under the fridge causing poor ventilation. We simply carefully cleaned all of the vents and fans under the fridge and the problem was solved.

Frig not very cold & metal between freezer and frig gets hot


Poor cooling and a hot divider mean that air is not moving effectively over the condenser coils under the fridge. Check to see if the fan is blowing under there while the compressor is running. If not, then the condenser fan has failed and needs to be replaced. If it is, then use a vacuum with a long nozzle to give it a good cleaning under there.

Panel between fridge and freezer very hot and no sound at all


Hi: Its just a coincidence you noticed it then. It is usually hot. It's the reverse side of the refrigerant (the hot side.) If you lived in a humid area the fridge would sweat. Water would run down between the doors. I live in a dry climate so no worries. Older fridges used an electric heating element to keep them dry. They also had an energy saver switch to turn it off. As Whirlpool uses the hot side of the refrigerant they don't use additional power to run the heater. Actually the heater is called a mullion heater. Nothing is wrong with your fridge. I'll look over my shoulder for angry retailers. Hope this helps, Jeff.

This is normal. There is a heater in this panel to stop condensation sweating between the doors.

Heat build-up


Had this same problem and turned out that the coils at back of fridge and below doors were covered in dog hair. After vacuuming, area is no longer warm.

My frigerator


This will get warm. If very hot check and clean coils in front, underneath. Also check fan behind rear panel. It should be turning when the unit is running. Also check for door not closing properly.
