A rubber burning smell from my refrigerator

Last night, I began to smell burning rubber. I ran around my home almost 30 minutes before I realized it was my refrigerator. I have unplugged it and will call a repairman, but was wondering what could possibly be wrong?

It could be overheating of the compressor and its surrowndings but could also be from the new type of insulation that are being used nowadays.........sodeep

Take out the battery and run just on external power, see if the smell goes away. If it does, check to see if there is a recall on that battery.

Burning Rubber smell coming from fridge


try taking the bottom panel off and vacuming all the dust on the coils. The dust may be heating up and burning. The coils are usually at the bottom of the fridge. Check to see if the fan is running also.

Refrigerator burning rubber smell when it tries to turn on


sounds like the relay on the compressors is getting hot and cutting the unit out, if the fridge is quite old it may well be the run windings gone short circuit in the compressor pot. The relay switches from start to run windings so may be firing the start circuit, switching over to a shorted run winding, and then getting hot and activating the thermal cutout and hence the burnig smell, plus the start and rapid shut down of the compressor.

It sounds like the blower motor has burnt up.(the one inside) The unit running for a few minutes then shutting off, is due to the high pressure/temperature safeties. When you removed the panels, did you notice any fan running?

How long had it been plugged in when you started to smell the burn. What kind of burn do you smell, is it an electrical burning smell or a smoldering dust burning smell.
