The defrost timer is not shutting off the heat strips in the cabinet. The smell is the fiberglass insulation overheating. Replace the timer.

Refrigerator smells horrible , but there is NOTHING spoiled in it.


You might have something smelly in the defrost drain pan. The easiest thing to do would be to take the back off the fridge and see if the defrost drain pan smells bad...if so just clean it out with soap and hot water. don't use anything too strong smelling to clean it though, you don't want your fridge to smell like bleach or pine sol.

Good Luck!

There is a strong chemical burning smell coming from the fridge/freezer but it still seems to be working ok at the moment, the light is on and still feels cold, any ideas what this could be?


if the smell is very sweet something like peardrops, could be poystyrene packing. check for cable chaffing where it enters cabinet.replace mains cable completely. if mains cable outer cover is getting too hot it will smell as above WARNING polystyrene gives off cyanide gas over 120c/when burning do not inhale(only had 1 freezer melt in 30 years it was set on purpose)

Very Strong Odor When Refrigerator Runs


Without looking at your fridge I would say the strong rubber smell is the heater element has dust on it or the heater contactor is closed and the heaters are staying on. Either way it would be good to get it checked out. I cannot think of anything else that would make a rubber burning smell.

Fridge freezer over heating and is not cooling fridge section


It is normal for the middle strip to be hot. Did you check the temp setting in the fridge section?
Also - you might check for blockage in the bottom. Excessive dirt/dog hair can block the air flow.
Good luck

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.

Sebo x1.1 - burning smell


Try replacing the belt. My vacuum cleaner had the same problem and once the belt was changed the burning smell was gone.
