Beko fridge freezer problem - only 3 years old

Postby Shaz197 » Thu Jul 28, 2022 1:55 pm

Something odd happened with Beko fridge freezer. I've had it only 3 years. I closed the door a bit hard and it rocked a tiny bit. I heard an odd noise, it sounded a bit like something electrical shorting! A 'fffzzz' noise. And a small cloud of white smoke came up from behind the fridge freezer. I panicked at that point and thought it was on fire and switched it off at the mains and removed the plug.
But there was no sign of actual fire and no more 'smoke', it cleared after a few minutes although there was an odd smell in the kitchen for a few minutes. I didn't dare switch it on again, all the food's been used or binned.
So what happened? Any ideas?

I've taken photos but they're too big to post here.
