Contact your service rep or check your manual.

However, I have a Industrial Freezer in my basement which has a "warming Element" on the door seal to keep it from freezing shut. It's about 20 years old and I've never had a problem.

If i understand you correctly , you are noticing a warmth around the sealing sufaces of the doors . This warmth is caused by built in heaters called " mullion heaters " which keep the sealing area of the doors from frosting or condensing due to air leakeag or the constant opening and closing of the doors . All refrigerators are equipped with these . If a mullion heater fails you would notice either a frost build up or condensate around the affected area of the door seal .

Also , dont be alarmed if you hear water dripping at the bottom of your refrigerator , this is another heater that melts the daily accumulated frost from the evaporater coils and is normal .

Enjoy your new fridge.

Ha HaaaaaaH! I knewed there are mullins heaters there Haa Haahee. I now feel a lot better myself since some time ago someone else that it was a contractor back then argue me that there's no mullions heaters there Haa Haa heeee.. Catch it done completed.. Haahaahee Oh yes there are mullions heaters there but I guess probably he just was trying fool me out I guess. By the way he's out of business as far as they told me later no wonder.

See refris and fridgis had to use it in order to control exccess moisture all over and they also take advantage of the hot liquid line as well all around the doors frames in order to warm it up too. Any how check out condenser in case there are some obstruction for air flow or dirty conditions at it. If new then no dirt has be there anyhow but keep some little couples inches apart from the wall to allow some good air flow accross condenser area. Allset that's all folks. You have the technology,hahaaaheee.

Hejajehee..

Cool deal thank's buddys seing you too keep it up and is nice for anyone have some off the hook stressing out talk once in a while. I do enjoy hanging around CR-4 because is like going to a "Technological Themes Mall" always some great gadgets to check it out buddys, jajahehe aahha.. another cool idea rigth here for some kind of big guys entreprenuers to develop. I'm telling ya' Who Knows? Great Deal for this community.

Allset buddys you have the technology, let go for it. You know is awesone how this cools technologys stuffs are moving all over the world. But again the trick part as many others nice things in life is to have the access to it. --Bottom line-- to make a story short is 'No Money No Honey' Deeaannmmmn... But don't get me wrong money is not everything always but I will give one shot to lotto once in a blue moon just for the heck in case 'No ticket No Laundry' like the 'Sponge Bob Cartoons' Unbeliavable Puppys. I'll check out with you all later then and " Crank it Up " Oooh Booyyy....

I believe this heating element around the freezer door is called a yoder loop in Whirlpool and GE refrigerators.
