We've been experiencing a burning smell when the refrig kicks on. It's plugged in all the time as it should be, but just started smelling as if wires are burning. Is this common for this to happen? I've only had this for 4 yrs

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.

Burning smell behind refregratot. After fan trggered there is burning smell like rubber burning.


First , clean the coils under the front of the refrig , with a vac . Then pull the refrig out and remove the back panel and check that the fan there in working . If not , remove any obstruction or replace the motor ( pt # 4387244 ) . If the fan IS working , then replace the overload/relay , which is plugged onto the side of the compressor ( pt # 8201786 (comes with instructions )) . Both are easily replaceable and will save you hundreds in repair costs . Note : Dirty condensor coils ( bottom front ) can cause the overload/relay to go out .

Fan running but neither refrig or freezer is getting cold.


Your refrigerator may be stuck in defrost cycle. I know it has a defrost timer part number 215846602 Most times they are located inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. Sometimes below fridge and behind kick plate. The thermostat could be defective also. You can check that by unplugging the refrigerator remove cover and checking continuity between the two male connections located on the rear side of thermostat control turned as cold as you can turn it. Or you can join the two wires together and plug refrigerator back in to see if compressor comes on. When you find the defrost time turn clockwise slowly until the refrigerator starts. If these don't work let me know and we will do some more test. Sea Breeze

After moving frigde and freezer quit.


Your compressor start relay has become loose or possibly defective.

If it sparks replace it.

Not Cooling and has burning smell


If you are looking for help, one must explain the problem in detail, described properly, for one one the internet to review. For myself, a would require more details of your refrig, to properly explain a resolution. Otherwise a general answer is not worth much. If you have the fully electronic temperature controlled unit, then the components can be easily chedked in 5 minutes, by the on-board service diagnostic computer. One needs to know the general operating knowledge fo the refrig, which is naturally available, since you operated it for some years. Anyway, a layman can check it out by doing what is natural. Since the refrig defrosted, it has shut down. Four years is too short for genral compressor defects. Put the power plug in and check for operating sounds. Just a few seconds. You mentioned smell (outside or inside), ket a paper tube, like a paper towel center, and sniff the evaporator motor, then the condenser motor. I will recheck later, and see if you want to continue, this troubleshooting. Regards fmauka
