Maytag refrigerator MSD2758GEW divider panel hot to touch

I've had this fridge for about 5 years and it's been working fine until recently. I've noticed that the divider panel is extremly hot to the touch, and I have tried cleaning the coils or what I thought were coils on the underside of the fridge by blowing out the dust, but to no avail the unit still gets hot. Please Help..

I had the same problem with my Model MSD2454GRW. The fan had stopped spinning because a piece of garbage got wrapped around it. Once I pulled that off and blew the dust off the coil everything was fine. You can't tell if the fan is spinning by listening because the fan is too quiet.

What you could check is that the fan at the back of the unit, where the compressor is located, is working, as this could also cause a heat build up. The partition between the two sides does generally tend to get hot due to the door circuit, to prevent ice buildup around the door. But people tend to notice when something is different. You are also right to check for dust underneath the cabinet as the condenser tends to be layered. If you have already cleaned it all out then you have probably done as much as you can. If you are still concerned contact a fridge guy. Hope this is of some help.

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.

The dividing strip between the freezer & fridge is hot.

Pull the refrig out and remove the rear cardboard panel . Check to see if something is caught in the fan blade stopping it from turning . Also , make sure the black square coils are clean . If the fan is not turning , and no obstruction , replace the fan motor . Use a small house fan to cool the compressor until the motor is replaced or the compressor could stop working .

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..

Maytag MZD2766GES side-by-side Refrigerator warm

is it frozen up? do you have any air flow thru the air tunnel from the freeze to the fridge? Check your air flow with the door switch pushed in. also check to see if the damper door opens... 1) if it is iced up you have a defrost problem. most likely a defrost timer. Turn off or unplug untill all the ice has melted off the evaporator back of the freezer..plug back in and it will work fine untill the ice builds up again. if this work you do have a defrost problem.. if not let me know and we can go deeper...
