Question about Coleman (100076) Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

I was camping and smelled melting plastic. The source was the camper fridge. Above the fridge controls there is a black plastic shield hanging from a pipe. One side of the pipe was very hot. The other size was room temp. Cooling fins between the two points. On the left side, the black plastic shield had melted away. What can cause the pipe to get excessively hot? 2000 Coleman Popup Camper

Smoke came from under fridge


When you let the smoke out of the wires, they don't work as well afterward! Sounds like a short and what was burning was wire insulation. The main components are the compressor and the fans.
Look for misshapen wires as that will be the best indicator of what has overheated.

Rancilio electrical smell


It might be a bad electrical connection. The connector and plastic housing are easy to replace.

It might be a bad thermostat letting the boiler to get too hot. It is easy to replace also.

If this was my machine, I'd replace both. You can Google search for parts or a parts list. Here is one source http://www.espressoparts.com/RancilioSilviaParts

The fridge and freezer smell like a dead animal. cleaned the inside with bleach but still smells for weeks. model w10212088


There are two reasons for bad smells. 1. Long time not being used. 2. Lack of cleaning inside compartment.

Solution: Unplug fridge. Keep open fridge door. Dip a dry cloth in soap water and start cleaning each and every compartment. Keep freezer door also open. And then clean with another dry cloth. Keep both doors open for nearly 5 hrs. It will be enable fresh air to **** the smell inside fridge.
After 5 hrs close the fridge and run on empty for one hour. Keep food items after one hour. Please keep all food items closed vessel. Not only it's avoid odor but also be hygienic.
If you use to keep fish items in freezer, clean fridge once in a week.(Spray roo spray in the room when you keep fridge door opened. Don't spray into fridge.)Helpful.

2006 Chevy Equinox Smoke emitting from the steering column with smell of burnt plastic. I have popped off the harness cover but not been able to deduct source of smell or any damaged...


Turn signal switch is common issue, the plactic melts when the contacts overheat. look for discolored or malformed plastic, near wires and contacts.

I just moved my dads fridge to my house and after about 7 hours I smelled a burnt plastic smell. I smell it on and off.The fridge is still cooling.When i moved it I layed it down.


When a fridge is layed down the oil in the compressor will flow into the refridgerant lines and will have to be stood upright until the oil can return the the comrpessor. It may be too late for yours but I would try cutting it off for a day before trying it again. This may not be the cause of the smell so keep a nose on that and try to locate exactly where it's coming from.
