My Kenmore Coldspot Model 106.59592990 side by side refridgerator mfg in 11/1999 is extremely hot to the touch on the face of the center column where the 2 doors meet when closed.

Last night, I noticed the melted food on the freezer side, so I increased the setting on the freezer from 4 to 7. This morning, the column feels much cooler. Soun

I don't know the model number but our refrigerator is approximately 6 years old and is a side-by-side model. My problem is that the metal frame that separates the two compartments which touches the rubber when the door is closed is extremely hot on the refrig side. We looked in the manual which said it was normal to be warm. It's more than warm, it's extremely hot as is the top on the freezer side.

The front vertical fascia that separates the frozen from the fresh food side on our fridge is actually getting too hot to touch. This is the area where both door seals contact the fascia and actually seal against. No other heat is noticeable any where else on the front or walls directly behind. Just on the metal strip itself that finishes off the front of the fridge. Weird. Is there any kind of wiring located in he wall between the two sides? I am afraid to leave the unit plugged in as the heat

Hello, I bought a Whirpool refrigerator about a year ago and it has worked reasonably well. Since this summer, which has been hot and humid, every time I open or close the freezer door, the rubber along the door opening makes a shrill, loud, screeching sound. I live in an apartment and I'm sure my neighbors can hear this. It's a problem because I sometimes get up very early. It's also quite irritating to me. Do you think the unusually high humidity has anything to do with this? It didn't happen


It's possible that it could be from the humidity.. If it is the rubber itself making the noise, try applying some vaseline to the face of the gasket on the hinge edge of the door. The factory lubricates the gaskets in a similar manner and it is commo ... Whirlpool Refrigerators
