I just had same symptoms (toxic smell and smoke) from my Kenmore side by side. Cause was faulty start device relay -- unplugged fridge, removed lower rear cover and found relay on the condensor. Sears sold me the replacement for a little over $50 same day. Easy DIY fix.

    I have a burning smell coming from inside my kitchenaid superba side by side fridge. It smells like a burning plastic. The fridge still turns on and keeps things cool, but it started to kick out that...

    Remove the power plug and move your fridge forward. Now look at the rear bottom side of the fridge to see if there are any parts that heats up. You can trace this to the smell emitting from the heated part and confirm. It can be the motor, contactor or the defrost timer.

    My fridge smells-- it seems to be the refrigerator itself- the cool air....what can I do?

    First and foremost do a thourough look through of the fridge, I'm betting money that you have a bad orange hiding in there somewhere.
    Once you have (hopefully) isolated the offending product you can spray some citrus based NON TOXIC cleaner into the freezer air inlet located inside the freezer at the bottom of the inner cover (you will see some openings at the bottom).
    Citrus based cleaners are the best at deodorizing and removing odors within a refrigerator.
    Good luck!

    How do you open the water/ice dispenser dress plate on a Kitchenaid Superba?

    Not to be funny, but carefully. There are no screws holding the face plate on. Look on the bottom edge of the plate and you will see 2 slots. That is where the clips are that hold the face place to the fridge. They are molded as part of the plate and just snap off to remove the plate. This may take a lot of force and it is best to work at getting some 'flex' in the left side of the plate, then working your hands down until the snap lets go. Then lift and the plate will come off.

    Brown watery liquid in the friedge

    i doubt that it is toxic,
    and I doubt that it is coolant,
    they would escape as a gas, and never liqify in the unit
    if it was the oil of the comprssor as well, you would know it right away, it would be very acidic smell
    unknown to all the circumstances, it might just be the first signs of s defrost issue.

    Smelly refridgerator/freezer

    I refrigerator does not produce a smell. The smell is usually from what goes into it. Take some charcoal (not the kind with starter in it),put 5 to 10 in a bowl and place into the freezer area and ball up some newspaper and place it on top of the charcoal. Use one of the lower shelves to place this on. You may want to take this time and remove any items that are not sealed good. Leave this in the freezer for 3 days, replace the paper with new balls of paper. In a week take it all out, this may help.
    You can always leave charcoal in the frig, in a small bowl.
    About the ice and water, this should be the taste of the waterline, plastic or nylon type hose on the back. Replace this with a good quality waterline and filter from a hardware or home store.
    Hope this helps.

    Bottom of my fridge is leaking and has a funny smell, all fans are running but fridge is not getting cold enough even the freezer, around the freezer feel really warm?

    Does it smell like ammonia. Turn the unit off if it does. Look for yellow powder on the back this would be another sign the cooling unit has leaked. The only solution is to replace the cooling coil.
