The sides of my refrigerator feel hot. Is it normal?
When your Refrigerator is hot, it is caused by the heat dissipated from the refrigeration process.
A condenser coil and an evaporator coil. A liquid coolant is circulated through these coils by a Compressor and a Motor. The refrigerant liquid is cooled in the condenser; it then flows to the evaporator. At the evaporator, the air in the unit is cooled by contact with the liquid-filled coil.
Causes of Side wall heating:
ㆍHot pipes are installed on the side walls of refrigerator.
ㆍWall clearance between the back of refrigerator and wall.
ㆍKeep refrigerator away from wall for better performance.
ㆍ Do not cover the refrigerator.
ㆍThe sides of the refrigerator may get warm, this is designed to reduce moisture condensation and not a malfunction.
