I purchased a Kitchen Aid refrigerator, MODEL kbfs20etss01, s/n kw1604600 around 6/08. On approx. 3/10/11 while at home my wife smelled something burning. Searching around the house she observed smoke coming from the refrigerator. She immediatly unplugged the unit and we called Kitchen Aid. They authorized a repair of the unit. The technician inspected the refrigerator and advised that the defroster motor dislodged from its clips and fell to the pan and burned the pan. I am concerned about this product since it runs 24/7 and could possibly cause a fire in the kitchen and possibly burn the house.
