Sounds like a bad overload relay assy for your compressor, its attached to the side of our compressor assy if that is what making the noise heres the part number 12002784. but if its burnig and arcing enought o ruin the compressor terminals you may need a new compressor, and depending on when purchased may or may not be covered. new overload relay comes with new compressor if needed

True cooler made a pop sound and was a bad odor thereafter


Sounds like the compressor may be going off on overload. The start parts for the compressor may need replacement. Tell me the numbers on the compressor and I can come up with a universal replacement part! ;)

Electrical smell


The most common cause of electrical smell on these units is from the compressor start relay. Get behind the fridge and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom. The relay plugs onto the compressor. See if the smell is stronger there. Also listen for it to try and start the compressor. If it just humms and clicks off, the relay is probably shorted out and needs replacing. Do not let anyone put a "fit all" relay on it, some of them will work ok for a while but cause a compressor failure a few months down the road.

If the relay is ok, check the icemaker area. A burned icemaker module will sometimes give off a foul odor.
Post back if you have any questions.
Thanks/Mike

Not Cooling and has burning smell


If you are looking for help, one must explain the problem in detail, described properly, for one one the internet to review. For myself, a would require more details of your refrig, to properly explain a resolution. Otherwise a general answer is not worth much. If you have the fully electronic temperature controlled unit, then the components can be easily chedked in 5 minutes, by the on-board service diagnostic computer. One needs to know the general operating knowledge fo the refrig, which is naturally available, since you operated it for some years. Anyway, a layman can check it out by doing what is natural. Since the refrig defrosted, it has shut down. Four years is too short for genral compressor defects. Put the power plug in and check for operating sounds. Just a few seconds. You mentioned smell (outside or inside), ket a paper tube, like a paper towel center, and sniff the evaporator motor, then the condenser motor. I will recheck later, and see if you want to continue, this troubleshooting. Regards fmauka
