Samsung RS2530BSH front corners and sides of the cabinet abnormally hot.


One some newer refrigerators, the manufacturer runs a loop of refrigerant tubing up and around the corners of the door seal area. While the refrigerator is running, this tubing will get somewhat warm--even hot if the room temp is hot like in summer. What this tubing and heat does is keep the door seal areas from sweating like a glass of water with ice cubes in it. If it is extremely hot, too hot to touch I would call for service and have it checked out. Some heat is normal.

Hot housing


Hi,

I am going to assume you refer the housing as the cabinet. If this is hot to the touch the condenser is clogged and cause this heat. Remove the toe grill under the doors, and clean/vaccum out all the dust from under the unit. Once cleaned the cabinet temp should drop, if not the condenser fan could not be running causing this heat. Clean it first before replacing anything to save money.

Good Luck

Freezer has warm spots. All around freezer is hot to the touch. Compressor is hot, coils are clean, condensor fan is running.


Thats normal.

The condenser coils are located just inside of your exterior cabinet walls on the sides and top.

So the freezer gets cold inside and heat has to be released from the condenser coils.
If this is something new, you may have a problem with the defrost timer

Outside of freezer is hot to touch


Hi


If the unit was off for a while then more heat is inside the freezer after having it off for a while. That heat gets moved out to your condenser coil. Most freezers today don't have fans to force that heat to the outside air, they run that heat through the outer cabinet and it naturally travels to the cooler surrounding air. If there is no rear cover and no fan motor near that compressor this is how yours is designed. Just give it sometime and it should be fine. However it should be warm to the touch but not so hot you can't. And also depending on how long the freezer is running and how warm it is where the freezer is will affect how hot the outside is. The reason the outside of the freezer is hot is because that's how the freezer releases its heat from the refrigerant. The longer it runs or the harder it has to work the more heat it has to hive off. So unless the freezer is not cooling there is nothing to worry about.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

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.
