When I had the freezer and refrigerator doors open for about 15 minutes while cleaning it, the middle metal divider piece between the two compartments became extremely hot. Freezer & fridge appear to be cooling.
ANSWER Hello Mel,
The center divider will accumulate a lot of heat when the condenser fan motor isn't running or when the hot coils are clogged with lint. Keeping the doors opened doesn't cause this. You just happened to notice it while cleaning the unit. I normally look up the part number, but there are too many model numbers that begin with the partial model number you listed.
You need to look at the fresh food compartment ceiling or close to it and find the units' I.D. tag. You can either post the model number you find and we can look it up for you, or you can call in and one of our operators will be happy to look it up for you. You could also look it up for yourself if that is what you desire.
