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?

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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
