Hello, this is Dave. Sorry to hear you are having problems. When the condensor fan motor under the refrigerator stalls and stops running the refrigerator can't get rid of heat the normal way and the refrigerant lines around the doors get hotter than normal. You will need to pull out the refrigerator to see if something is stuck in the fan blade. Let me know what you find.
