Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Mould in freezer vents How to clean

\015 Son has moved into a rental with a Westinghouse fridge. Mold is visible inside the vents-I think between the freezer and fridge. Have to put head inside freezer with flashlight to see it. Mold has been identified as Aspergillis species. Freezer smells like stale cigarettes as soon as door is opened. He has not turned it on yet. How can this be cleaned? Can it be cleaned?\015

Fridge worked perfect for 3yrs, one day i took everything out of the fridge side (left freezer door closed) to clean it, left the fridge door open for about 30 minutes as i cleaned the shelves, cripser etc. Next day the fridge side stopped cooling but the freezer side was normal temp and making ice. Unplugged the unit for one day, plugged it back in and it worked perfect for 2 weeks, after that both sides (fridge and freezer) stopped working.

Hello help People, Water is dripping very slowly from the back of the fridge ceiling seemingly coming from the drain in the freezer? We cleaned out both the freezer and fridge and allowed for some collected ice in the freezer drain to melt and cleaned that out. We are also sure to keep the airflow unblocked. It still is leaking and am not sure what the cause Is? any ideas and help would be much appreciated. THANKS Bruce
