SOURCE: Our Kenmore Coldspot has an awful odor whenever you open the door

use straight bleach on it. sponge down the whole inside with bleach and if you can leave the doors open on it to let it breathe and clear the odor out. bleach kills most smells if left on for awhile.go over it a couple of times if you have to to get rid of the smell.

Inside the fresh food compartment look for an opening that will allow you to turn the defrost timer clockwise slowly. When you hear it click the refrigerator should go into defrost. If the timer is bad it will need replaced. Let me know. Below is a photo of timer.

SOURCE: kenmore coldspot side by side refrigerator - freezer fine. other

Good to see you put your model number down correctly. Do the lights come on inside when you open door? I noticed your refrigerator has a control board inside the fresh food section behind the control panel I want you to unplug the refrigerator and examine that board for burn marks or loose solder connections on both Sides. Then let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea breeze My email is appliancepsrtsse@yahoo.com Web Site http://servicepartstec.blogspot.com/ Part Number for Control board is 8201528

SOURCE: my kenmore sidexside quit cooling and freezing.

Good day,
He can't, although it's a good guess. However, The compressor can be tested and run with a special test cord most all techs have.
It allows the compressor to be run independent of the rest of the machine and is the definitive test. I would not go forward unless that test is performed. Compressors are too expensive.

When the dryer in on I smell fumes.The flex hose was removed and there is nothing in it. The fumes do not smell like gas fumes such as from a gas leak It is an older Kenmore dryer that woeks fine.


Did you recently do some painting or varnishing in the house? These and home perms will mix with the burner and leave an awful smell behind.

I'm sorry that I don't have a solution, but we have the exact same problem with an older model KitchenAid side-by-side. Did you get this problem solved? If so, can you share what you did?

Kenmore coldspot 106.52234101 side by side. Freezer defrostet producing burning rubber smell. Any idea why. sam


sam_novik:

The compressor may have a short circuit. This might be the problem. The standard warranty is five years for this part. You can call Sears 1-800-4my-home, to get more info. If they come out to repair it, there might be a diagnostic fee ($70.00) and if it is the compressor, it should be fully covered.

Let me know what happens. Thank you, Binary Bob

Awful smell in drum of washing machine


My friend told me of someone who researched this problem, and it is because we are using liquid detergent. Switch to a granular high efficiency detergent. Before you start using it, you must run through a mixture of about one cup Clorox and two cups vinegar through the washer, using the Sanitary setting. I am actually on-line now trying to research the exact proportions of Clorox and vinegar when I ran across your problem.
