The beam in middle of refridgerator where both doors rest against while closed is too hot to touch


Is the cooling fan for the compressor working? There is a coil of the condenser line that runs around the freezer side. This will get hot but the cold freezer side keeps it form not getting too hot. It could get very warm if the freezer is not cold yet.

I have just bought a samsung fridge when I put it on, the sides of the fridge become slightly hot. any trouble?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. The evaporator lines pass though the cabinet and the heat generated from the cooling process is transmitted to the cabinet. Usually you would also not this same warm to the touch around the door of the unit. Years ago they used to use heating elements to keep condensation from forming around the doors when the door was opened. To make the units more energy efficient they now run the copper tubing around the doors to use to the heat from the refrigeration process to prevent condensation. Unless it is hot.... as in really hot to the touch I would not be concerned. If by chance you are not geting the normal operating temps and the unit is hotter than you thnk it should be then take a look at the condensor fan area and make sure the fan is running and that the condensor cooling tubing is free of lint and debris. (remove fiber board cover in back of the unit to check)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kelly

The doors are scorching hot to touch on my Maytag 2454. It's always been warm to touch, but all of a sudden it is too hot to even touch. It is in the center part of both doors, along the door seal area and...


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.

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.

My fridge freezer GR359SQ is making a constant buzzing noise and is hot to the touch round door area and the side.


The hot touch around the door area is normal. Buzzing sound can come from anything in and around the compressor. A slight bend of tubing can change this. Feel around the compressor while it is running and you may notice a change in the sound which is caused by resonant frequency in the routing of the tubing or mounting of the compressor. Hope this helps

Area around freezer door is very hot to the touch. ice maker works, but after awhile the ice will melt. freezer is freezing.


HI, That area being hot is a sign the refigerator is not cooling properly. We need to pin point the cooling problem.
First, are you noticing any frost build up inside the rear freezer panel?
Are the fans and the compressor running?
Please let me know so I can assist you through this.

If the mullion heater around the doors is hot to the touch the inside temperatures are not being maintained. They should be warm but not hot. This usually indicates a problem in the internal temperatures. Check the back wall of the freezer section for frost buildup. Your defrost system may not be working and it had not gotten to the point of complete failure as far as you noticing the temperature differences yet.
