Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/Kenmore refrigerator too hot to touch where doors meet


hi Eric-

I have read a thread on the similar problem I.e Kenmore refrigerator middle divider getting too hot. I have checked the fan, it is working , cleaned the dirt on compressor, turned it off and on in 15 minutes. But, nothing has helped, problem still persists!! First I need to know whether this can lead to fire hazard and how long can we wait on this? Next, is there any other fix for the problem? Thanks in advance!

No fire hazzard....Normally the condenser fan motor is not running or running very slow.  That is the fan motor behind the unit by the compressor.  Is it running?  If so, then we have a freon restriction or a freon embalance....  Need model number to see your unit.....

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
