Refrigerator - Warm Between Doors

Normal warmth is created by the automatic energy saver system circulating warm liquid around the front edge of the of the freezer compartment (area between the doors) to help prevent condensation on the outside of the refrigerator, especially in hot, humid weather.

This area will always be warmer (sometimes hot) when the compressor has to run longer than usual. Often cleaning off the condenser coils and improving air flow around the refrigerator will relieve this problem.

Some older top freezer and bottom freezer models have a switch in the refrigerator compartment marked Energy Saver or Power Saver. This switch controls a mullion heater behind the strip between the doors. We recommend setting this switch to the right when climate conditions are hot and humid, or when you notice moisture appearing between the doors.
