The fridge has been working fine the past two weeks, but it has a horrible smell (like a burned motor or something) coming from inside. It's making all the food smell bad. What could this be? It's cooling fine

If you notice frost in the freezer that could indicate a burned out defrost heater. Might just be the 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.

I have a burning plastic smell coming from my refrigerator, the fridge is not working, but the freezer seems to be working fine. The smell is horrible though. please help


This is a serious issue, your appliance is a fire hazard. It's more likely that a electronic board is catching fire. I highly recommend you to get a technician to check the appliance. Don't wait until you see flames.

BURNING SMELL COMING FROM MY WASHING MACHINE


if it smells like rubber burning then i would suspect a belt is worn or slipping or somthing has jambed the basket from turning .. the belt is not expensive ..labor of course would be extra .. if the burning smells like insulation or a strong electrical burning smell then you may have a bad motor .. those used to be about $70 + labor .. no telling what they get for them now ...

you mention that the smell came from inside ... do you mean inside where the cloths are (the tub) or inside the cabinet (outside of where the cloths are) ...if the smell was coming from inside the washing tub .. then i would suspect something cought between the inner and outer tubs .. if the smell is not from there then the first suggestions above are good ... bras and slippers and such are good for getting cought .. check where the movable tub (with holes) meets the outer tube (no holes) .thats at the very top of the tub .. ..make sure nothing it cought there ...

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.

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell


Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.
