Kenmore Sears Complaint - Kenmore a Fire Hazard
FRESNO, CALIFORNIA -- I just had my 5 year old Kenmore side by side refrigerator catch fire. This filled my kitchen with smoke and when I looked behind the service panel in the back I had actual flames in the insulation. I pulled the panel off and suppressed the fire. I found many burned wires on the relay on the compressor. The compressor was still running as it failed to kick off! I called Sears and all they would do was to agree to come out and fix it for a price. No apparant concern to check it for possible safety hazards on other refrigerators. If I owned another one I would be calling Sears for a safety check!
