Hello,

It's normal for the center divider to be warm but it should never be so hot it will burn you when touching it. A few things to check are;

The coil on the the bottom of refrig. behind the grill under the doors, check and clean all dust from it using a vacuum and ref. coil brush to clean all dust from it

The condenser fan motor..its behind the rear access plate in the back of the unit,remove back plate and check that fan motor by the compressor is running.

Good luck, GENE

Wall dividing fridge from freezer is very hot to the touch


You either have obstructed coils (lots o dust) under the fridge or the fan that is supposed to draw air across them has ceased to work. Check the coils and clean as necessary, and check the fan. Maybe you will get lucky and find something caught in it. If the fan is not working, leave the back cover off the fridge and put a small window or box fan back there until you can get the fan replaced. The fan will keep the fridge running for you in the meantime.

The divider between the freezer and refrig is very hot to touch.


Normal for that strip to be warm since the cooling system is routed right behind it for heat transfer and to eliminate condensation. Will be warmer with increase in room temp, but if it is a significant change you should inspect/clean the coils behind the panel in the rear of the unit.

Divider red hot


I'm not familiar with the Samsung refrigerators, but on most side-by-sides the evaporator (cooling) coils are located within the divider partition between the two sides.... along with the defroster 'heater' coils. During the defrost cycle, this panel may feel warm/hot to the touch. Are the freezer/refrigerator sections staying as cold as they should be otherwise? If they are also TOO WARM, then you may have a 'defrost cycle' relay or timer motor malfunctioning.

also see if the fan works properly.

Good luck..

Freezer working but refigerator not...


Mullion heater is not the problem. If the refrigerator is not cooling look to the freezer compartment for your problem. Air from the freezer is used to cool the refrigerator(s) section. If the freezer coil frosts up it stops air circulation to the rest of the system. Although you may think the freezer is working properly it may have a defrost problem and will show up there also. Look for signs of frost on the back wall of the freezer as a sign of the coil freezing. The mullion heater is designed to put out just enough heat to stop condensation between the outside temperatures and the inner compartmant temperatures. If the inner compartment is warm the heater will seem warmer than normal.
