Question about Refrigerators
On morning a flash of night came from my GE smart water table top cooler. I unplugged it because it smelled hot. I also took the back off of the water cooler to see if I could see anything. I noticed that a black wire with connector seems to be burn off. Can this be fixed? Can I still use it if I shut the red hot water switch off on the back? Can it still be used?

I would reset the module. Open the fridge door, keep the freezer door closed, then press the mode button (located on the display panel. This will re initiate the electronics

you do have a switch at the top door hinge . make the phillip screw are tight at the top of the door . if they are loose the door will not align in order make contact with that switch. or you may have a faulty light switch

First point: The entire fridge is cooled by the freezer section. A fan blows air across to the food section.
2) Every 8 hours or so, a timer shuts off the compressor cycle, and starts up a heater to defrost the freezer coils. If the heater(s) are burnt out, or if the safety thermostat (to prevent overheating) is open, then you will have no defrost. The coils will frost up and eventually prevent airflow to the food section. Milk goes sour.
3) In rare circumstances, the timer itself can stall. This cause the same symptoms as above, but this is not as common as the other 2 causes of No Defrost.
Sequence: Check heater continuity. Check safety thermostat continuity while cold. Check defrost timer operation.
Hope this helps. I am a journeyman with 39 years exp. Happy New Year.

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.
