Burning smell in Kenmore refrigerator freezer possibly ice maker
More than 10 years
Recently noticed a burning smell (electrical) coming from freezer. Lifted the control arm on the ice maker to shut it off and smell disappeared by the next day. The freezer and fan are still working properly. The ice maker is a replacement that I installed about 2 years ago and has been working perfectly until this. Seems pretty clear the ice maker is the problem, but do I need to replace the whole thing or is there a part (or parts) that I should check first. Thanks.

Just 2 years old? Was it a used ice maker you bought back then?
Yes, you'll need a new ice maker assembly.
Here's the ice maker assembly for your model, it's on sale here:
