Any heat inside a refrigerator is a not so good thing, firstly you have to assertain if the thing is in defrost or not, they do this regularly to defrost the ice, if it's hot all the time then you have a problem.

Dell vostro screen divided into three sections

Is it a Desktop Background issue? Open the Personalize page by right clicking a open space on the desktop, click on desktop background, bottom left, change to fill. If that not the issue, you may have a Graphics issue. Have you done any Software updates, changes? Have you tried a reboot without battery?

The center strip that divides the fridge and the freezer is hot to the touch -- so hot it will burn my hand. How can I fix, and is there any fire danger?

Sounds like there is a problem in the sealed system. Remove the rear lower cover and tell me if the condenser fan is turning. While there, is the Compressor hot to the touch?
Pull the unit away from the wall and then remove the rear bottom cover. Is the condenser fan running? If it's real dirty there, unplug the unit and clean real well. In the freezer section...look on the rear wall and tell me if you see any frost building up.
Thanks Good Luck

Freezer running, ice maker not producing, hot in middle divder.

The dividing section should be warm, to keep unit from sweating. (by design). Cleaning under the refrigerator was what cooled it down. You cleaned the condenser. The condenser allows the refrigerent to cool down. When it was dirty, the condenser could not get enough air to cool down.

This is normal. There is a heater in this panel to stop condensation sweating between the doors.

The middle divider heats up

Yes it is normal. Old side by sides had an electric heater through that strip known as the mullion that you could turn off with the "energy saver" switch. Not any more... it is now that last pass of the condenser that runs around the door to prevent moisture build up. The more load on the sealed system, the hotter the mullion. If it gets almost too hot to touch, clean the condenser coils as they are probably getting plugged with lint and can't evacuate heat anymore... cooling will suffer too if that's the case not to mention higher energy consumption.
