Question about Jenn-Air Refrigerators
I smell some plastic or rubber burn and i pull my refigi out I unplug it and notice that the plug & the compressor was burned. Can this be repair?
Check to see if the pins are damaged on the compressor. You may be able to repair the wires and replace the overload and relay. If you need help testing the pins on the compressor let me know.

look for a door/light switch, and depress it do the lights go out?? bad switch will keep the lights on and melt plastic lens covers.. could also be nothing and you happened to open open the door right as a defrost cycle was completing( there is a heating elemnt in your freezer) watch your dairy, ice cream nad milk are real good indicators of refrigeration issues. as far as runnig all the time no real" time limit" as to how long it should be running.

sounds like the relay on the compressors is getting hot and cutting the unit out, if the fridge is quite old it may well be the run windings gone short circuit in the compressor pot. The relay switches from start to run windings so may be firing the start circuit, switching over to a shorted run winding, and then getting hot and activating the thermal cutout and hence the burnig smell, plus the start and rapid shut down of the compressor.

I would consult the place of purchase. If they do not stand behind the product, then get the manufacturers support #. They will stand behind their product, especially if it is a possible fire hazard. THe smell you are smelling could be anything, but without being there and taking off the cover and doing a visual check. it's hard to dianose. It is possible that something that is plastic has fallen out of a pocket and gotten inside the unit while it was drying clothes and fallen onto the igniter housing.

try taking the bottom panel off and vacuming all the dust on the coils. The dust may be heating up and burning. The coils are usually at the bottom of the fridge. Check to see if the fan is running also.

u may need to unplug it then tip it enough to see under it to see if maybe a mouse chewed on some wires and try to rewire or electic tape on some bare wires
