Not cooling at all

I woke up to a smell almost like en electrical fire. I noticed the smell coming from the bottom of the refridgerator. Prior to this happening it seemed everything on both sides was too cold so I had changed the temperature up 1 degree. By the end of the day the friderator was completely not cooling. It runs but everything melted and it does not cool at all.

Refridgerator will not cool. Freezer works fine. Noticed a pool of water on floor then started to cool again. after a few days quit cooling.

Check the water drain hole in bottom of unit. If plugged water cannot get to catch and pan and evaporate with the heating element.

Think our refridgerator motor went smell of smoke but is still cool will it burn

Check to see if your condensor fan motor is running, should be behind the refrigerator backing plate and close to your compressor. Usually caused by a very dirty condensor unit. You have to vacuum, brush or blow out the condensor coils at least once a year to prevent overheating damage and to save 100.00 to 300.00 a year in electricity. If this is not the problem then let me know if the smell is coming from inside the freezer, refer section, or underneath.

Burnt plastic smell coming from bottom of frig

This is a sign of a short and should be looked at immediately. A smell like that is a sign of something burning. I could be the start relay and start capacitor with overload. But I would not sleep with the possibility of a fire. I will look over your model and see if I can find what this could be, Sea Breeze

My Dometic trailer refridgerator is warm but freezer is freezing.


Unfortunately, you have a bad cooling unit in your refrigerator. Then ammonia smell means that you have a leak in the unit. TURN THE FRIDGE OFF!!! Do not use the fridge on AC or Gas until you have the cooling unit replaced or buy a new fridge. Depending on the model number and serial number of the fridge, it may be under recall by dometic and you might be able to have it repaired for free. If you will provide me with the model number, serial number and the serial number of the cooling unit (found on the outside of the unit in the fridge compartment, lower tank of cooling unit), I can then tell you the pricing of the repairs or whether it is under recall.

Again, TURN THE FRIDGE OFF and do not use it...RISK OF FIRE!!!!

Hope this helps,

NOt keeping food cold

Good posibility that some thing is wrong with the defrost system. This is not as expensive to repair as a compressor. Is it worth it? The compressor and having it replaced and recharged will run much more than 250 a lot of the time or very close to it. Unplug it for a few hours with the freezer door open. Then plug it back in and see if it starts freezing again. This would tell you if it is something with the defrost cycle. The low motor noise may be the fan in the bottom of the unit. It would be good to know if the compressor is running or not.
