My KSRB22FKBL14 KitchenAid side-by-side fridge caught fire (start relay on compressor).
I understand that KitchenAid fridges are made my Whirlpool/Maytag.
Whirlpool/Maytag has a HUGH recall right now of refrigerators made over the past 10 years...Does anyone know if the start relay/compressor is basically the same thing in a KithenAid refrigerator as a Whirlpool/Maytag and should possibly be part of this recall (listed on the US Consumer Product Safety Commissions website).
I have pics

Burner will not light but ignitor comes on, gas is on. Goodman furnace. Comments: Nov 11, 2009 - Thanks for the help, found that the top safety switch (relay?) was tripped, reset it and it fired right up, is this a sign of something else wrong and should I replace the relay?
Sometimes the gas pressure is to much which causes th much heat. The limint switches do get weak. Just let it run and see what happens at least you know the safety works. If it is bad not hard to replace.Rus ...

I have a Penn Refrigeration unit, it is a 5'9" x 5'x9" by 6'7" high with a floor. The unit is just three years old and we just assembled it, had a refrigeration guy refill the gas and it fired right up and he left, aafter it cooled down, approx. 20 minutes, the compressor would not fire up again, you could hear the click but it just kind of clicked back and it would not start. Even if it startes it only runs for a few minutes and clicks off. One thing I observed is that the fan seems to be novin

Have a Maytag side by side fridge and it keeps blowing(violently with fire !!) the control board in the ice and water dispenser. All is fine with new board until I push the "dispense" button and BOOM..fire.... Why is it blowing these boards ? they are EXPENSIVE...help...
First of all, "These boards" ? That means it was replaced before? If you are replacing it by yourself, don't even think to get a new one. The source of the problem must be determined.If a service tech is "fixing" it, then you real ...

My Westinghouse 605 litre side by side Refrigerator/Freezer keeps tripping the RCD Safety switch.
The unit is working but trips the safety switch on a irregular basis - sometimes 10 minutes after restting the switch, sometimes 10 hours.
Short circuit I had a shortcircuit in my sub zero freezer. It happened when I opened the freezer door, there was a fire for a few seconds. The freezer seems to work fine now but there is a terrible smell. The fire was at the top part of the freezer (the bottom part of the ice maker).
I heard today on the news that some Maytag fridges may cause fires and are being recalled .I bought my freezer on the bottom fridge last year,i need to know if it is one of the recalled models !! Help! I am scared of a fire ! [email protected]

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. perform ...
