    The service guy said it was the relay (and in fact it had black burn marks all over) so he replaced it. Fridge was working fine for 2 days and just now I realized that the food in the freezer started thawing. I set everthing to "coolest" to see if it would turn on but it wouldn't. Lights and ice cubes dispenser are working fine but the 'motor' is not coming on.
    What is wrong now?

Remove the back panel and see if the condenser fan motor is working
it may be just to replace it.
is the only thing than can make smoke unless you have a short circuit, but that is less likely.

Smoke came from under fridge


When you let the smoke out of the wires, they don't work as well afterward! Sounds like a short and what was burning was wire insulation. The main components are the compressor and the fans.
Look for misshapen wires as that will be the best indicator of what has overheated.

Why is the dishwasher smelling like electric burning and smoke coming out of the door vent?


Hi friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is giving off an electric burning smell and you are seeing smoke coming out of the door vent. It could possibly be an issue with your control panel or door vent, both have electrical components inside of them. Since it could be either one of these underlying issues I would recommend having a technician come out to your home and diagnose and repair the dishwasher. Hope this helps. -Matt

Smoke coming from Refrigerator


Start components or wiring could be getting old and brittle. Take the back cover off. Its usually a cardboard cover with metal screws and inspect/repair the wiring.

Inside fans blowing smoke (burning plastic smell)


Smoke and smell of plastic indicates that there is a short circuit inside. It is the protective covering on the electric wires. Unplug the refrigerator from the wall and call the repair person.

I have smoke coming out of the freezer fan grill and water dripping outside on each side of the shell between the freezer and refrigerator. What is the problem?


Your drain may be plugged and water is getting onto the fan's electrical.
Go to back of the unit, remove access panel, check that the little drain tube is dripping water into the evap tray. Tray should be somewhat wet. You can use pipecleaner or coathanger to check for clogs in drain. Or cut the bottom rubber piece off to allow better flow..

Amana bottom freezer has a burning smell coming from the back of it. Fan is still working.


Is this burning smell occurring during a defrost? Something, like a food particle or wrappping, could be burning while in contact with the defrost heater. Is the burning smell coming from within the freezer? If it is coming from the outside and back of the box, unplug the box and investigate, or call a technician. You may want to call a technician, anyway? We don't need house fires.
