The sides are hot probably due to the operation of the moisture control system heaters. These heaters operate to prevent moisture accumulation on the box due to humid air in the space where the unit is located. If you live in a cooler climate, you may not need for these heaters to operate. Not sure about the burning plastic smell.

Remove the power plug and move your fridge forward. Now look at the rear bottom side of the fridge to see if there are any parts that heats up. You can trace this to the smell emitting from the heated part and confirm. It can be the motor, contactor or the defrost timer.

Brand new Whirlpool Duet Sport gas dryer & burning plastic smell


I would consult the place of purchase. If they do not stand behind the product, then get the manufacturers support #. They will stand behind their product, especially if it is a possible fire hazard. THe smell you are smelling could be anything, but without being there and taking off the cover and doing a visual check. it's hard to dianose. It is possible that something that is plastic has fallen out of a pocket and gotten inside the unit while it was drying clothes and fallen onto the igniter housing.

Hot refrigerator


I had the exact same problem and got sick and tired of it. I contacted the Consumer Product Safety Commision and they came out and photographed my refrigerator and asked questions about the fridge. If everyone who is having trouble would write the commission we might be able to get the fridge recalled. Even if you repaired it already, they want to know the problem and what you did about it. the web site is: www.cpsc.gov. Everyone please help out. The more people we get to respond the better.

Smelly fridge`


Can you describe the smell or relate it to something common? Plastic, burned wires, fishy, rotted meat, etc. Is it only when you open the door or can you smell it outside too? Are the temps normal in the freezer and refer sections? When did the smell suddenly get noticed?
