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.

Blue smoke start up


If it started to smoke after a service but didnt before, check for over-filled oil.
Otherwise it is a valve seal or piston ring gap issue.

Wire burning smell whirlpool range. Happens when oven or top are turned on. Smoke come out under control panel.


Had the same problem with my Whirpool range. Took off the rear panel and carefully plugged in and turned on the top oven. One of the terminals on the part labeled as 'Switch, Hi-limit' started to spark, glow and emit smoke. This part had 2 blue wires running to it. One came off of the top element in the top oven and the other fed back into the black plug on the control panel. Part in quests is held on with a single screw and has a part no. of 7403P993-60

Sounds like it's getting to hot. If this is the case, the "high limit thermostat" is likely bad and need to be replaced.

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.
