Hello - reviving an old(er) thread. GE side by side, Conquest model GS5SHAXNL00. I have the heated up vertical door divider issue. No other malfunctions that I know of. I went through this thread, removed the front kick panel, and discovered that my cleaning regimen under there needs improvement. The cooling elements were totally clogged. After cleaning, I let it run for a day and did not notice much improvement, but maybe a little. Pulled unit out today to look in the back. I removed the lower panel and found some dust bunnies but nothing like the front side. Some debris in the back (papers that fell behind). Fan is running, seams slower than I would expect, but running. My question here is regarding the compressor, which is quite hot. Almost too hot to hold my hand/fingers on. Is that normal? I didn't see any other possible solutions other than the fan, and clogged coils.
