My fridge started smoking

My whirlpool fridge is only 4 years old. Out of the blue yesterday it filled my kitchen with smoke and now does not work. I can't see any burnt up wiring or sign of melted parts.

Whirlpool profile refrigerator


Unplug it and see if noise stops. Leave it unplugged for at least 10 min. This will tell you if it is the fridge. Be sure and check your batteries in smoke alarms if you have any. I have made several calls for noisy appliances that ended up being smoke alarm battery warnings.
