Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Front between doors is VERY HOT

I have a Samsung RS2630SH side by side. This afternoon my wife noticed that the front of the refrigerator is very hot; too hot to keep a hand on it longer than a few seconds. As far as we can tell, everything else is working fine. We are worried that the heat will do damage. Any solutions?

    Looked for what you said. No help.

    I got to looking around the back, took the back cover off, and noticed the cooling fan was not turning. I tried turning it, and it was bound up. I checked the current going to it and the current was hot. I pulled the fan assembly and tried to oil it. It would turn then, but still not strong enough. Decided to order a new fan assembly from Sears PartsDirect. Until the new assembly arrives, I have placed a small fan behind the refrigerator. That has taken care of the hot spots on the front of the unit. I will update when I get the new assembly in.

    The fan assembly is in place, working perfectly.

Had the same problem. I opened the "meat" lever controlling the "hole" between the freezer and fridge compartments (mine is next to the crisper trays at bottom) and put my finger in it to clear any blockage. It's been 24 hours and the center post is no longer hot. Think maybe I had a blockage or the hole was closed off and whatever is in that middle wall needs the cold air flow for cooling. If you discover some other remedy, please let me know.

My samsung rs2630sh is very very hot to the touch


The fan you should replace is called the condenser fan. It's the one that blows air across the outside coils. When it fails, you'll usually notice abnormal heating of the front of the divider between freezer and fridge.

Very hot between side side doors.


this unit is working just fine, do not be concerned.
it is part of the condenser side, of the refrigerant cycle, keeping frost from forming around the door seal.

Both Freezer door and a metl strip were hot


There is a sweat control heater around the front edge of the fridge and freezer. It has a switch that will turn it off, usually by the other controls. It just wastes electricity.

Samsung model # rs2630sh side by side fridge. center strip is hot


I had the same problem, and it was the condenser fan motor. I ordered mine from www.partstore.com. It was half the price of sears.
I would suggest ordering the 2 "plastic bushings" for front and back of motor. I was able to reuse mine, but for a few dollars more it's worth it.

That sounds like you may have something in your condenser fan motor.. piece of bag, paper and may have stopped your fan altogther.. that would be the first place to check.. right by your compressor in the back of frig.
