Freezer is hot at the bottom


Hi all, I have a side by side fridge and the bottom vent of the freezer, where the water filter is, is emitting really hot air, making the floor really warm. What can I do about this?

Nothing, that's the way a refrigerator works.

As Joe mentioned, that is the way they work. You could try cleaning the coils and see if that helps. Most are located on the bottom now. You'll need a shop vac with narrow attachments and long narrow brush. Just a suggestion.

You might not have noticed when it was colder out. Now that it's getting warm it may be more noticeable.
