Kenmore Refridgerator side by side.  Overheating around door seals where it contacts the refridgerator.  Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on a refridgerator that is very hot to the touch around the door seals on both the refridgerator & freezer.  This fridge is approximately 2 years old and has had a short stay in a garage (unsure whether heated or not) Why it would be overheating?  The interior of the fridge is cool and the freezer is cold.  Thanks

Sounds like hot freon is causing this which means the compressor is overheating for some reason.  Make sure the condensor fan motor is running ok and the coils under the box are clean.  Would need the model number for a more details since Sears makes nothing and having Kenmore on the box means this would made by G/E, Whirlpool, Maytag, L.G., Frigidaire, etc.

This is a Whirlpool Ref.  Check the condenser and the fan in the rear.  Also see if this area cools down after the ref has cooled down and starts cycling.  It is meant to be warm to keep the door gaskets dry so they will not mold, but just warm.
