Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
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,
