Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator
Hi, Welcome to FixYa.
I`ll start by letting you know first the heat between the doors is normal...to a degree, and done by design to help prevent moisture along the "breaker strip"/divider.
If all else appears fine, temp. Ok, fans running, no significant frost build up on freezer back wall, it's likely nothing to be concerned about.
**Just be sure the condensor fan isn't jammed and still turning.** The fan at the back next to the compressor.
The amount of heat can be determined by several factor's such as,
1) temperature setting - lower ( colder ) the temperature is set the more the run time the hotter the strip.
2) The ambient temperature - hotter the environment the more the unit runs to compensate, hence the hotter the strip.
3) The amount of "fresh" content added to the unit ( especially freezer section if unfrozen items added ) - new items add a lot of warmth thus demanding the unit to run more to remove this heat (btu`s or british thermal unit`s )causing the strip to be hotter.
4) Build up of dust & dirt on the condensor coils - this also causes the unit to run excessively which in turn makes for more heat on this strip.
These are all things which can and do determine the amount of heat between the doors.
Another factor to always consider is of course If it is hot where you live the unit may just be running more to compensate as with other factors I mentioned.
Hope this answer's your question and let me know if I can assist you further. Thank's for coming to "fixya" and good luck moving forward.
