Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

The mullion strip where the doors seal up to gets hot if the compressor is overheating. That means you'll need to pull the refrigerator forward and remove the lower back access panel next to the compressor. Make sure the condenser fan motor next to the compressor is running to cool the compressor down. If it's running, then clean the coils under the refrigerator and if you still have problems, you'll need to call a technician to check the sealed system out.

If the fan is not running, then either remove the blockage, or check to make sure you're getting 120 volts to the condenser fan motor and if so, replace the condenser fan motor because it has failed.
