There is a strong odor coming from the freezer something like a fish smell or a burnt wire. The ice maker is working ok and the fan blows air just fine and the freezer and refrigerator are operating just fine but there is this very strong odor both top and botton....freezer on the bottom.

I simply need a schematic for this unit. The freezer section is icing up and the fresh food section is not cool enough due to fan not working. It had worked earlier but stopped. It looks like some sort of stepper or PWM type motor. I have no way of knowing for sure whether the motor is actually defective or whether it's the driver circuit located on the board, I'm getting voltage between the white lead and three other leads but have no point of reference.

I have side by side refrigerator. It does not want to cool properly. The food will stay frozen as long as it is in the bottom of the freezer. The refrigerator stays semi cool. The fans are running the compressor seems to be running. I did notice that it doesn't look like it is defrosting like it suppose to.

We had a new oven put in 2 days ago, and the installer turned off the circuit breakers. Ever since he turned it back on my side by side has been making a clicking noise (like a relay). Then it will hum for about 30 seconds and stops and clicks again. Then it does it again a couple of minutes later. Last night I noticed that all of my freezer food is thawing. Seems like fridge is working but freezer isn't cooling.


Remove the bottom front panel of the fridge and locate the defrost timer. This is a small circular motor with a screw slot in the center. Turn the slot CLOCKWISE ONLY and listen for a click. As soon as you hear the click stop, wait about five minutes ... Refrigerators

I have a superba 42 and have a freezer problem. I noticed yesterday that the icemaker had stopped making ice so I dumped the frozen ice from the container thinking that it might be that, but after 12 hours nothing was happening. We have also had a problem recently keeping ice cream frozen. Then I noticed that some of the food in the freezer was defrosting. Mostly less dense foods like pasta and meatballs, but some of the things are still frozen. Any ideas? Thanks, Helene

You could try one of those ozone generating machines to take care of the lingering odor. The ozone will help reduce the odor and kill any microbes that might have been growing from the spoiled food. You could try renting a machine and it should be ab ... Refrigerators

Our Smeg SR640XA side by side refrigerator is making strange puffing noises at the bottom section of the freezer. It puffs four or five times and then it sounds like something is dribbling in the back of the freezer for a couple of seconds.

Would like to put older side by side refrigerator in our garage. I was told in the winter, when it gets cold the freezer side will not keep foods frozen. I had an older top freezer refrigerator in the garage for over 10 years and it worked fine. Is this true? We have an older freezer out there too and was hoping to eliminate the older freezer and just use the side by side.

Drain in freezer keeps getting plugged up and bottom of freezer has big, frozen sheet of ice. Have had repairman out twice. I'd like to know if I could fix it myself. Yesterday, I took the freezer door off, slid food trays out, and chipped off ice, but couldn't find drain hole. Do I need to take the back off? The repairman melted the drain hole ice with a blow dryer and then sucked guck out with a turkey baster. I could do that too if I could find the drain! Thank you. Candace Miller

My Sanyo refrigerator (model SR-4431S) isn't cooling like before and certainly will not make ice... While scraping ice from the freezer compartment up top, I accidentally made a small puncture in the back wall and heard gas coming out. After ten minutes, the sound of gas escaping stopped. I was able to plug up the small puncture, but it seems that the gas, or refridgerant, is missing... Can I replace the gas/refridgerant? Thanks.

Sound like you punctured one of the molded channels in the freezer shelf that carries the refrigerant.  Probably can't be fixed.  Possibly could be replaced.  Consult a service technician if the fridge is new enough to keep.  If i ... Refrigerators
