Question about Refrigerators
Hi -- Sears Kenmore Coldspot, Model # 8539510
My side by side is at least ten years old, maybe 15 (time flies). This morning I opened up the refrigerator and was assaulted by a strong odor of burning plastic. The odor is faint on the freezer side, if there at all (could have just drifted in with opening and closing the doors). Can't smell the odor from the back or underneath -- only inside. Haven't noticed any reduction in cooling lately tho' the unit does seem to run for long periods of time.
I appreciate any comments; please let me know if there is other information I should give.
Look for a door/light switch, and depress it do the lights go out?? bad switch will keep the lights on and melt plastic lens covers.. could also be nothing and you happened to open open the door right as a defrost cycle was completing( there is a heating elemnt in your freezer) watch your dairy, ice cream nad milk are real good indicators of refrigeration issues. as far as runnig all the time no real" time limit" as to how long it should be running.
