Wise men of appliances, please help.
Last night my wife or I left the fridge door open overnight. There was much speculation as to who was responsible. My wife has assured me that is of no concern at this time, and this should remain a mystery.
The fridge was accessed at 2:30 am, freezer temp 0 degrees, fridge temp 36 degrees, no odd smells, and all light bulbs working
The fridge door was left open between 2:30 am - 3:00 am.
The open fridge was discovered at 8:00 am. freezer temp -10 degrees, fridge temp 61 degrees, burning smell in fridge, and one or more light bulbs not working. Closed door at this time.
9:00 am, no change in temps, burning smell, or light bulbs. Unplugged power, emptied fridge and freezer, and left doors open. Then left for the day.
I don't know the source of the burning smell. I don't want to cause any further damage than what may already be done. How should I proceed before reconnecting power? What should I inspect or test?
