We have a Sears Kenmore Coldspot refrigerator ,1999. Model# XXXXX We cleaned out the dust from under the bottom and today the whole inside perimeter of the refrig. is very HOT to touch. The refrig. is cold but the inside door perimeters are just plain hot. THe top of the freezer toward the front is also warm. Do you have any idea what is wrong with it?
Make sure the fan is running in the back down by the compressor. If that is running the divider may cool down after you cleaned the coils. It will take a couple days to transfer the heat away.

We're checking to see if the fan is running--we don't hear it so we are taking the back off. I don't think the fan is running--does it run all the time or just on-off as needed?
The fan should run when ever the compressor running. If the fan isnt running you need to replace the condenser fan motor.

The fan was struck against its housing--probably moved when we were cleaning the coils. We got it running again. Thank you very much, you were most helpful. We like this service--will keep it in our files for future use. Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
