    Isn’t that how fridges work? The hotter it is outside, the harder they have to work & therefore their nuclear reactors have to work harder? I am however thinking back to 1994 when I was at school, so I could be totally wrong.

    I think you are eggsagerating a triffeling matter, or at least milking it for sympathy.

    On a more serious note, if the light stays on when you shut the door, then yes it is about to explode.

    There is a gas in the fridge R134a , freon or something. When compressed it turns into a liquid and gets hot , the heat from this is dumped ( normally out the back ) via along thin metal cooling coil.
    When the compressed liquid is de-compressed it goes through change state cooling and goes cold. The cold liquid runs around inside your fridge , making it cold. There is a small orofice valve that lets the liquid through slowly and lets it expand.
    This is a very basic description of a fridge.
    No the sides should not be hot, but the back should be.
    Maybe pull the fridge forward and remove all the dust thats on the coil
