Very Strong Odor When Refrigerator Runs

There is kind of burning rubber smell coming from our fridge. There are no belts on it. We cleaned (vacuumed) the underneath and back of the fridge. Of course, the fridge is full of food.

Without looking at your fridge I would say the strong rubber smell is the heater element has dust on it or the heater contactor is closed and the heaters are staying on. Either way it would be good to get it checked out. I cannot think of anything else that would make a rubber burning smell.

Kirby upright smells like a foot. Changed the bags. We had to move it to the garage for storage beacuse it made the closet smell like bad shoes. Gets strong when used


Check the brush for accumulated hair, and other debris. If the brush is belt driven check the condition of the belt, over time the rubber deteriorates and melts when heated up during use creating a burning rubber odor.

When its in use there is a burning odor


If it is a rubber smell, the belt is slipping and should be repalced. If the smell is a sharp electrical burning odor, the motor brushes are sparking and the motor may be damaged.

Odor from outside of Refrigerator


pull out the fridge and remove the back panel, and clean that area. Make sure no food is stuck under the fridge also. A rotten piece of fruit or other food, once under there, will smell until it totally decomposes. We have seen this before. Hope this helps!

Odor coming from back of fridge


This is very unusual, most of the time when I get complaints about odor it's form the inside of the cabinet. This should be easy enough to solve though. The odor is likely from dust accumulated underneath, or from something in the drain pan. If the unit has visible fiberglass insulation underneath you should replace it with new because, even if the source of the odor has been removed, the insulation can still contain it.
Unplug the refrigerator, take off the kick plate and rear cover. Clean and vacuum the entire under- carriage, condenser, fan, and condensation evaporator tray.
Be gentle with the components though, especially the capillary tube ( a pipe about the size of a 14 gauge copper wire )
