I just purchased a Frigidaire side by side, model number 4A11705918. I am replacing a 10 year old Frigidaire. The old fridge vents air from the back of the unit. It is room temp air, maybe a little warmer, (It is full of chilled food, the new one is empty) The new fridge vents from the front left and has been plugged in for 6 hours. The inside temp is perfect but it is venting very warm air. I realize the unit needs to vent heat to cool, but once it is full of products will the venting slow, or not be as warm? I just don't want to load it if there is a problem but I don't have enough experience with fridges to know. Any relevant input would be appreciated!

Whenever the compressor is running the condensor fan motor will be removing the heat from the condensor coils.
