Having parts on your freezer overheating does not sound good for appliance. While you are waiting for an expert answer, I did manage to find a link that is similar to your problem. I hope my link is useful.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand your concern when you notice that the walls of the freezer are hot.

The freezer cabinet incorporates the condensing part of the refrigeration system and as it removes the heat from the inside the freezer it dissipates the heat through the outer walls of the cabinet.

This is a normal function of the unit. It may have been running for awhile when you noticed it.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I had the same concern on my new Kenmore chest freezer because in fact the area above the side vent was too hot to keep your hand on! A repairman said like you that it is how the cooling works but I have a two year old Kenmore chest freezer and the side area does not get too hot to put my hand on. The repairman checked the amps, etc. and said all was working as should be but that very hot area still concerns me. I thought it was worth getting another opinion. Thanks a lot..............Candy

Thank you for your question Candy. I understand your concern with the hot sides of the new freezer. This is normal for a chest freezer to have areas on the sides of the chest freezer that are very warm. The area you are concerned about is the first pass of the condensing tubing that is welded to the inside of the outer cabinet and this is the process for removing the internal heat in the freezer. There will be other places that will not be quite so hot. I hope this will reassure you that your freezer is working normal. Sam A.
