We have a americana dometic fridge in our rv which is one of the call backs told on the news , that can catch on fire due to defective part in the fridge! our fridge quit working as it turns out while camping at our spot. we had a rv teck come out to our site as our trailer is unmoveable. he said to get hold of the dometic fridge site that makes the fridges, as they will owe us for the part replaced yest., or the teck who assisted us! and the mileage he had to come. can you help us.? there are so many fridges involved out there and we weren't told of the defect. pretty bad on behalf of all the trailer sites that carry this brand of fridge, as they knew some time back!! it was from 1997 to now i believe!

Ice maker will not work model ctb1925gr serial number 17087951cl fridge


This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning unit, it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

I have a side by side Whirlpool fridge and the ice maker is not working. If I have it turned on (lever down) and door is closed and water leaks out the front of the ice dispenser and it doesn't seem to...


How old is the fridge? Mine lieterally caught on fire at the start device last weekend. My fridge was manufactured in July 2001. Be careful, The fridge I have is model# ED5FHGXKQ00. I am currently requesting a recall be made by Whirlpool on this appliance.
Other than that it could just be that the ice maker line has frozen or the "arm" in the ice chest is stuck and can't raise itself to pump water directly into the ice trays. Either way be very careful. I hope this was helpful.

Light bulb stays on in Kenmore Elite fridge Model # 795.77559600


I had the same problem with a kenmore elite fridge and recieved the same response from Sears customer service!!! File a complaint with your local BBB. Sears contacted me within the day and sending out a tech at their expense only after the complaint was filed. Good luck. Elana

Refrigerator caught on fire.


tough call but. the entire start relay kit and cap can be replaced. it is usually surrounded by metal and if it does fail is not a major source of concern as far as a fire. stink yes, but nothing around it to flame up and cause a major fire. performance can be checked immediately after parts are replaced, and if it starts ok then you are as safe as you would be with a brand new unit if it had the same problem!good luck

Refrigerator caught on fire.


start relays smoking is a common fault and does not usually indicate a fault elsewhere. parts are reasonable cost so give it a try
