Heat coming from refrigerator

We have a XLR 385 with a residential refrigerator. Over top of the fridge is what looks like a little wine rack. we stored a bottle of something a little stronger than your basic pinot and noticed that it got beyond warm and bordering on hot. I've also noticed that the frame on the doors just on the outside of the rubber seals is always very warm. Any one else out there with a residential fridge notice the same thing and is this normal? Thanks in advance for any response.

All fridges produce heat from the condenser and most of them route it up the back of the fridge. Also, most fridges (even RV ones) have condensation heaters built into the door frames. On some models you can turn then off. the combination of those heat sources are most likely what you're feeling.
