My hotpoint refrigerator has a burning smell, it works just has that smell


May be various things.
1.- It depends on the type of weather you're living on, maybe it's a hot weather, and it adds to the normal heating that fridges have.
2.- If you have working the fridge on it's coldest point, it demands more energy, so maybe you can lower the demand of cold level.

Tip

Refrigerator Efficiency


The efficiency of your refrigerator can be much better if you take the time to check out a few things before you buy or do a bit of maintenance on your refrigerator. The maintenance part I have covered in another tip, so I will just stick to the things that you can check when buying a new refrigerator in this tip.

Energy Star refrigerators will save you money. Look for a refrigerator rated with the energy star, when choosing a new model. Efficient refrigerators rated with the energy star are listed on the energy star website.

The style of the refrigerator will also make a difference in the refrigerator electric usage. A side-by-side refrigerator will use more energy then a top freezer model. The refrigerator electric usage is higher for those models with the two side-by side doors. If you look at the energy star list you can also see the energy kWh/year usage and see which models use the most electricity.

Some other things you can do so that your refrigerator work is less, includes checking the door seals, cleaning the condenser coils, checking the thermostat settings, and checking to see if you can turn off the door heaters if your refrigerator has them. Cracked or loose door seals will allow air to circulate outside the fridge, this uses more energy to keep the refrigerator cooling. Dirty condenser coils will cause the refrigerator compressor to work harder to cool the fridge. The door heaters also will make the refrigerator work harder to keep it cool inside. Adjusting the thermostats to 0- 5 degree F for the freezer and 36 -38 degrees F for the fridge side will keep your food fresh and still save energy.

Efficient refrigerators are great but they still need to be taken good care of by cleaning and servicing them regularly. Refrigerator electric is one of the biggest electric usages in most homes. Take some time to check over your refrigerator to help save some money on your electric bill.

Tfx25zr where is water filter


If your model has a filter The water filter cartridge is located in the

upper right-hand corner of the fresh food

compartment, right below the temperature

controls.

The filter cartridge should be replaced

every

six months or earlier if the flow of

water to the water dispenser or icemaker
decreases.

MAYTAG REFRIGERATOR MODEL RSW2700


Are you sure your refrigerator came with an energy saver switch? I can't find one listed for the model you have. If you are trying to add one, that is not something that is easily done for the older models. If my documentation is incorrect and your model did come with an energy saver switch or you are looking for another part, then you might be able to get it through www.searspartsdirect.com . Just plug in your model number and select model # search and you will get different models of your refrigerator. Select the one that applies and look for the correct part.

Energy rating


Look inside the refrigerator section. There should be a tag with the rating on it.

Where do I find the model number on my Hotpoint


In the last few years GE has placed the models serial label on the top center, top left or top right of the fresh food section. Older models had it behind the fresh food door at the bottom or behind the grille. Also there were a couple of years they placed it behind or to the side of one of the lower drawers.

Sorry about all the different locations. That's just how they did it.

Thanks.

We have a hotpoint refrigerator Model #CTX14CYSFRWH


Your probably hearing the compressor run on a rough start. Common for hotpoints. It could be a start relay (unexpensive) beginning to get weak. Here in the south, due to the hurricanes, people were running the refrigerators on generators. This causes them to go week. Other than that you can pull your fridge and use a shop vac to clean excessive dust off and it will help the efficiency a bunch. Good luck.

Stopped cooling


Hello cpuklutz
Welcome


You said, Kenmore; 21 cu ft; 10-years old; just stopped cooling; wondering if it even makes any financial sense to get estimate to repair, or is 10 years about it's trouble free length of service

Here is an article that you may find useful and interesting related to your situation.
Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Thank You, HUUUM

Is my fridge energy star rated?


ALL ENERGY STAR APPLIANCES HAVE A "ENERGY-STAR LABEL" USUALLY LOCATED ON OR NEAR THE MODEL AND SER. NUMBER TAG OR LABEL. CHECK ON THE BACK OR INSIDE THE REFRIGERATOR WHERE THE COLD CONTROLS ARE LOCATED.
