Question about Refrigerators
I have a silantair compressor. It is giving out burning smell recently. What should i do?
Not familiar with that brand but each compressor I ever saw had a compressor relay. The relay allows for power to multiple windings inside the compressor and then it drops out power to start windings which saves energy and prevent compressor overheating. overtime the relays disintegrate inside. If it sound like a salt shaker inside it or appears to be charred outside it is on the way out and there is yore funny electrical smell. I have service manuals for various american models at appliancejunkgoogledrive.

CHECK THE OVERLOAD/RELAY ON THE COMPRESSOR. THE RELAY COMPONET IS BREAKING DOWN AND CARBONIZING CAUSING A BURNING SMELL. THE PART WILL SOON STOP WORKING AND THE COMPRSOOR WILL NOT RUN. IT WOULD BE WISE TO REPLACE THAT PART ASAP.
