It's usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.

How do i turn my ice maker off? i have a viking side by side and the ice maker is just pouring water in my freezer...its a mess!


Turn the water off under the sink where the small line starts that goes to the fridge or there may be a cut off directly behind the fridge in the supply line.
Your water inlet valve may be stuck open. It's where the water supply connects to the fridge.

Panel between fridge and freezer very hot and no sound at all


Hi: Its just a coincidence you noticed it then. It is usually hot. It's the reverse side of the refrigerant (the hot side.) If you lived in a humid area the fridge would sweat. Water would run down between the doors. I live in a dry climate so no worries. Older fridges used an electric heating element to keep them dry. They also had an energy saver switch to turn it off. As Whirlpool uses the hot side of the refrigerant they don't use additional power to run the heater. Actually the heater is called a mullion heater. Nothing is wrong with your fridge. I'll look over my shoulder for angry retailers. Hope this helps, Jeff.

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.

CHECK CONDENSOR FAN IN REAR OF UNIT NEAR COMPRESSOR. IF COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING AND UNIT IS COOLING SOME, CONDENSOR FAN IS LIKLY THE PROBLEM. IF THE CONDENSOR FAN DOES NOT RUN THE COILS UNDERNEATH AND THE LOOP THAT RUNS NEAR THE FRONT EDGE OF BOTH DOORS WILL BE HOT.

Maytag refrigerator MSD2758GEW divider panel hot to touch


What you could check is that the fan at the back of the unit, where the compressor is located, is working, as this could also cause a heat build up. The partition between the two sides does generally tend to get hot due to the door circuit, to prevent ice buildup around the door. But people tend to notice when something is different. You are also right to check for dust underneath the cabinet as the condenser tends to be layered. If you have already cleaned it all out then you have probably done as much as you can. If you are still concerned contact a fridge guy. Hope this is of some help.
