Faqs / The sides of my refrigerator or freezer are hot to the touch. Why does that happen?

Some model refrigerators have part of the condenser coils foamed into the walls of the cabinet. If the refrigerator or freezer has a forced air condenser under the unit and the coils are not cleaned, the sides of the refrigerator will be warm. Also, if the ambient temperature of the unit is warmer than normal this could cause the side walls of the unit to be warmer than normal
