Samsung refrigrator fan replacement

My Samsung refrigrator was getting very hot on the divider to the point that you could not touch it after reading all the similar complains I found out the colling fan by the compressor is not working. I bought a new fan motor but my problem is removing the blade from the motor, is there a trick to this?

    same refrigerator, made a noise from the back of the fridge so we took off the back panel and saw it was coming from a plastic fan near the bottom of the fridge near the motor. The divider was so hot we were afraid the refrigerator was going to catch on fire. called a repair man who told us to get a fan and have it blow against the back until it can be repaired. One problem is where do we get the parts. I think this refrigerator should be recalled.

Wall dividing fridge from freezer is very hot to the touch

You either have obstructed coils (lots o dust) under the fridge or the fan that is supposed to draw air across them has ceased to work. Check the coils and clean as necessary, and check the fan. Maybe you will get lucky and find something caught in it. If the fan is not working, leave the back cover off the fridge and put a small window or box fan back there until you can get the fan replaced. The fan will keep the fridge running for you in the meantime.

My samsung fridge side walls gets very hot to touch what is the reasons? why it is heated?

the coolant lines run throught cabinet of the fridge.there will be some heat felt on the outside of the fridge and the center divider, if the temp is real warm to the touch then you might have a condensor fan thatis not operating causing excess heat.

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.

The center divider (between the doors) gets so hot you can't touch it. Other than that- it works and cools just fine.

ok that is entirely normal
that is your moulion heater, it is ment for two things
a. it keeps your seals soft and plyable
and b. it controls hot air entry to the unit when you open the door
it offsets the heat barrier with the door open,
that is what stops humidity from building up oin the machine

Service light is blinking & rubber trim is hot

usually when the center divider is hot to the touch, it means that the compressor is running hot. either your compressor fan is not running or it is stuck or running too slow. Joe

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..

Well, it sounds like your condenser fan motor has seized up and needs to be replaced. I had the same problem and additionally it woudl onhly produce about twenty cubes of ice a day. Best Buy repair guy came replaced the fan motor and within 10 minutes the heat was dissapated from the strip and it started churning out ice agin.
