It is likely that you have a problem with the capacitor.  Look for it on top of the compressor.  If it is discolored or smells...you'll know!...replace it.  While you're there, clean out the condenser fins.

REFRIGERATOR HAS STOPPED WORKING , NOTHING RUNS, NO LIGHTS NOTHING


If everything is dead the first thing you have to establish is that the unit is receiving electrical power. It is far fetched for every component to go bad at the same time!!!!!!

Water smells from my side by side


Hello Maria, this is JK. I understand that you recently purchased a pre-owned refrigerator. Changing out the filter and the tubing were a great start to clean water. If you have not already, I would encourage you to run 10-12 glasses of water to freshen the supply and rinse out the tank. If you find that this odor and taste still persist, you may want to have the water tank replaced. Hope this helps!

Samsung RF267 water tastes terrible. Filters changed twice and not helping


If new plumbing, system is flushing and may cause a bad taste or odd color.Has a food item spoiled?
Make sure that strong smelling food (for example, fish) is wrapped so that it
is airtight.
Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or suspect food. Place foods in airtight containers to prevent the transfer of odors.And also Flush out water hose from tap end to freezer with warm water And also clean fridge with wet cloth (with soap solution). And then clean with dry cloth. .Keep fridge door open after cleaning all compartments for 4hrs minimum, as fresh air could wipe out any bad odor in fridge. And then start using fridge. Hope, it's helpful.

the air blows from freezer to fridge side and then returns from fridge to freezer,so it could be and usually is something on fridge side causing odors or funny tasting ice cubes,check under bottom draws on fridge side,what kind of odor is it?

FRIDGE IS BLOWING THE CIRCUIT BREAKER


Most likely you have a bad or weak circuit breaker. Consult an electrician for breaker change out. Make sure that it isn't hooked up with a GFI plug. They will not work on a GFI.

Frigidaire side-by-side refrigerator keeps tripping GFI outlet.


We had same problem with different fridge. Is the fridge cooling things? When ours did that we needed to replace the relay overload start capacitor it's called a three in one. It acts like a giant battery to give your compressor a n extra boost to get started runs about 25 bucks relatively easy fix only has three wires to connect

try running an extension cord to the old outlet and see if the fridge works then you'll know if it's the fridge or outlet. good luck
