Hi, I hope the pros can help me.
My new Frigidaire refrigerator was delivered and plugged in on Mar 18, 2009. The following day I immediately smelled something when the compressor (I think that's what it is) was running. At first the odor was sort of something burning and then turned to something hard to describe. I thought it must be because it's new but I've had new fridges before and they didn't smell like this one.
I finally called the service tech since the smell has started to bother me - made me light headed. The tech came yesterday (3/25/09) and opened the back and said nothing is burned. He didn't smell anything and said refrigerants don't have any odor and if it's leaking, the fridge will finally not cool down.
But there is this smell everytime the compressor is running. What do you think it is?
What should I do? Can refrigerators be returned? What are my options?
