Front wheels should screw in and out for adjustment purposes!!!!!!!!!!!! And with that degree of tilt you might just have to resort to shimming so be ready.

Possibly leaking coolant.

The condenser coils do get hot. They can even be to hot to comfortably touch and this is normal.

The refrigerator should not run constantly but shut off with each defrost cycle.

Running constantly and never cycling off can indicate a cooling problem.

One thing to try is to wait till it has been running a few minutes then open the door and turn your cycling thermostat towards the off position. It should cycle off before getting to the off position on the dial.

If it does not cycle off then it's not getting cold enough to satisfy the thermostat. This is likely the reason the refrigerator runs all the time.

A thermometer in a glass of water can be used to check the temperatures in the refrigerator section.

You can check that all fans are running.

the reason the outer side of the door seal area is getting hot is the compressor is over heating, probably the condenser fan motor to your compressor is bad.
It should be a little warm but not hot. they don't use heaters anymore ( some older models still use heaters) around the doors, instead they use the condenser coils to remove condensation and moister, you might want to check your condenser coils on the bottom or back of fridge to see if they need cleaning
If the condenser coils/condenser fan are all plugged up they need cleaning and/or the condenser may fail or has failed..

The ones that use an electric heater will have an "energy saver" switch that will turn it off.: God is the reason I give you free advice so God is good!

Hello Ron Carlson

Page 6 of 6...

Pretty straight forward refrigerator!

Although I agree with the first answer you got from Todd Marr...a lot of available volunteers here have been around a lot of blocks...
Can call out the Whirlpool & Frigidaire units you share parts with... and how to very cheaply you can
test various parts to bring you to your very quick victory...

I'm just saying, ice-maker, defrost issues, warm refrigerator side... Fast frost build-up... puddles?

If you'll pardon the pun ...

Find defrost timer normally located behind the cover plate for the fresh food temperature thermostat. It will have a one way adjustable screw head on it. Turn the screw slowly until you hear a click (this would normally be where the defrost would begin) leave in this position for an hour or until you hear compressor kick back on. If you have water in catch pan of refrigerator you have bad timer. Otherwise you have bad heater or defrost thermostat. To check heater and thermostat I would go to parts site on Internet and type in model no. And see if they have diagnosis videos on this or similar ref. Otherwise buy the heaters and thermostat remove shelves, ice maker etc. To get to the liner of ref. Remove it and you can then remove and replace the heater and thermo. Be very careful as the cooling fins are sharp as razors.

What is running? The important motor is the compressor - the one that works with the refrigerant to supply cooling. If it is not running you can check the start relay/capacitor. If they are good, make sure that electricity is reaching the motor windings. If the thermostat stays open, the compressor will not be activated.
If compressor is running and if there is ice buildup on the evaporator behind the back panel, then the self defrost mechanism is not working - could be you have an open heater coil. If you completely defrost the refrig for a day and then plug back in, if it works fine, then it is definitely ice buildup which serves as an insulator and prevents cold air from reaching the refrigerator portion.
