Burnt smell is usually the defrost heater wouldn't you say? Dang that pint looks good and me being sentenced now to only weekend drinking.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

Check to see if you have voltage to the fan motor. If you have voltage to the fan motor and the motor does not run then you need to replace the motor.

Hope you find our site helpful.
