Similarly, you may ask, why is my fridge freezer getting hot on the outside?
You may notice that the outside of your fridge feels warm. This is caused by the heat dissipated from the refrigeration process and is normal. If your fridge feels warmer than it should, it may be the spacing between your fridge and it's surroundings.
Secondly, why side walls of the refrigerator are very hot? Sides of a refrigerator might appear hot as heat generated by the compressor is drawn to the sides to prevent condensation and improve adhesion of the door seal.
Also to know, can a freezer overheat?
When a chest freezer, or any other kind of freezer for that matter, overheats, the problem can usually be traced to the compressor. Other mechanical issues can occur in the cooling process, perhaps involving the condenser or refrigerant, that contribute to the eventual failure of the compressor.
Why is my freezer warm?
A failed condenser fan motor can inhibit freezer cooling because air doesn't move across the condenser coils to cool the refrigerant before the refrigerant enters the evaporator. A failed electronic control board or a bad thermistor (also known as the temperature sensor) can also cause your freezer to warm up.
