Clean the coils under the machine and make sure the airflow under the machine is not obstructed in any way. refrigerators release some of their heat between the doors to prevent condensation, but if it very hot then the machine is not releasing enough heat from its coils under the machine.

Middle section divider gets real hot


Any heat inside a refrigerator is a not so good thing, firstly you have to assertain if the thing is in defrost or not, they do this regularly to defrost the ice, if it's hot all the time then you have a problem.

Divider between two compartments is hot model 106.59599990 side by side refrigerator


It is supposed to be hot. Approximately 110 degrees.
It prevents condensation between the doors.
The hot gas refrigerant line is routed through the conduit in between the doors.
It is OK.

Roper side by side refrigerator gettig very hot to


Most side by side units have a hot return gas line that is attached to the "mullion strip" to prevent sweating or moisture build up which could cause mold to build up on the door seal. The heat you feel is normal, however excessive or continuous heat is a symptom of the unit running too long.

Below is a link provided by www.repairclinic.com, which will help you understand how a refrigerator works.
Tip: Make sure door seals are sealing adequately and keep entry time to a minimum during high heat periods. Use the rule "Get in, get what you want and get out"

Door frame is always hot on freexer side


Is it hot all the way around, or just on the face of the divider between the freezer and fridge? If it's just the divider, then it's probably not a defrost problem. When that divider gets hot, it usually means there is inadequate air flow over the condenser coils outside the unit.

When the compressor is running, check for air blowing under the unit. If no air is moving, then you probably have a failed condenser fan. If the fan is running, then use your vacuum cleaner to clean the coils, and make sure there is space behind the fridge for air to flow.

Divider red hot


I'm not familiar with the Samsung refrigerators, but on most side-by-sides the evaporator (cooling) coils are located within the divider partition between the two sides.... along with the defroster 'heater' coils. During the defrost cycle, this panel may feel warm/hot to the touch. Are the freezer/refrigerator sections staying as cold as they should be otherwise? If they are also TOO WARM, then you may have a 'defrost cycle' relay or timer motor malfunctioning.

also see if the fan works properly.

Good luck..
