The freezer is not getting cold and the water is dripping down the back onto the coils and it is causing a sizzling sound and smells like it is burnt. How do we fix.

Turn it off before you burn your hose down. Nothing should be so hot as to make a sizzling sound! There shouldn't be any water on the outside of the unit. It sounds like there is leak.

If this unit has been in operation for a while, like a couple years and longer -- the coil that is under the unit is most likely completely matted up with dust. This needs to be cleaned. With the unit off use a vacuum cleaner, brushes -- any way you can devise to get rid of all the accumulated dust.

Because I can not think of what water could be dripping on to make a sizzling sound - or where that water be coming from - I'm going to suggest you call in a professional on this one.

There shouldn't be any condensate that can drip on anything. The clogged up coils underneath could cause the freezer not to cool properly.

A burnt smell sounds like electrical - and that's why I'm concerned.

My Alpine Air 880 makes a sizzling noise. I turn the dial down and it gets better. Whats the problem?

The sizzling is the high voltage "bleeding" to ground inside of the collector module, or the high voltage electronic circuit.

First, unplug the unit and remove the module. Thoroughly clean all electrical contact points where the module makes connection. If it possible to operate the unit without the module in place, then replace all covers, plug the unit in, and attempt operation. If you continue to hear sizzling, then unplug the unit, remove covers, and continue to clean, digging deeper into the unit to find traces of accumulated dust/dirt. Also be on the lookout for burned areas in the plastic, around insulators, etc. High voltage is a mighty beast, and will easily track to ground, causing a sizzling noise.
If you don't find anything there, then take the modele and look for any tracking points on the insulators. Look very closely at the ionizer wires for accumulated lint, which creates little points where high voltage can bleed to ground from.
You may get popping of high voltage as well. When this happens, note the places where it occurs, and those places become suspect of causing the sizzling sounds.
Let me know what you find. These guys are cantanckerous at best.

Tv made sizzle pop sound and went out

All depending on the models, but i have seen and work on may units with this problem, there are a few large capacitors on the power supply that are sometimes doubly secured with glue, that in turn becomes conductive and causes faults like this. check all the large capacitors for any low or nil readings and with a fine point probe, carefully remove the glue on the and around the caos, and elsewhere if you see any. Good Luck.

Burning odor, no heat

A burning smell along with a different sound (growl) USUALLY indicates a breakdown in the High Voltage Side. This is not a direct short (short circuit) or the line fuse would have blown shutting everything down. The High Voltage Side is made up of-- The Secondary ,or High Voltage Side of The High Voltage Transformer, A High Voltage Diode, A High Voltage Capacitor, and The Magnetron. If The High Voltage Transformer is the problem it will smell like a florescent light ballast burning, and will smell each time you turn on the MW. A HV Diode burns and opens, thus no more smell. A HV Capacitor usually does not burn nor does the Magnetron. There is no Cheap-Fix unless you can see that the HV Diode is burned into and you can get to it to replace. CAUTION: Always unplug from power before attempting to repair. NOTE: If you replace a Diode make sure it goes back in the same direction it came out. Yes there is a front and back.
