You are going to have to take the back cover off and investigate. Check the defrost drain pan first. If anything from the freezer, like raw meat juice, went down the defrost drain, it would end up in the defrost drain pan, usually located very near, possibly on both sides of, the fan motor at the bottom of the refrigerator. The next thing to look for is a dead mouse. They like the warmth from the refrig., and can get killed from a fan blade, electrocution, or if they ingested poison, that makes them thirsty and the warmth plus the availability of the water from the defrost drain makes an ideal place for the to curl up and die. (A dead mouse usually dehydrates and stops smelling after a few days.) All that sounds like lots of fun, right? Happy hunting and good luck.

Side by Side GE Refrig/Freezer is blowing hot air out of the bottom - is this normal?


If your refrig is 10 yrs old or les , then yes , this is normal . It pulls air in from the back over the condensor coils then compressor and out thru the front . The refrig should be 3-4 inches from the wall so it can pull fresh air thru . If any closer , the hotter the air will be causing the coils and compressor to be hotter than designed for therefore causing less life for the refrig . The WARM air is good meaning the refrig is cooling properly .

My whirpool freeze is not blowing cold air - there was a burning smell and something keeps clicking


You need to gain access to the panel behind the refrig , and remove the bottom panel . On the side of the compressor , you will see 2 or 3 wires going to the compressor . These wires actually are going to the overload/relay ( the piece you need to change ) . Take your model number with you ( if you had given it here , I could have given you the part number ) , when you go to get the part .

No cold air blowing into the refrigerator - temp too low


You have your own answer there - You have overfrosting and icing up behind the freezer, this will affect proper cooling - also if you have seperate freezer and refrigerator controls, it's possible the damper is not opening properly to let the cool air in. But in your case it sounds like a defrost problem. You will need to have a service person inspect your control board and defrost timer components - sometimes it's as simple as a board replacement due to a burnt resistor these things are the most common causes.

Good luck

GE side by side refrigerator smells on the outside!


Mix 1/3 cup of bleach and 2/3 cup of water , and pour down drain tube (rear bottom in freezer section . Too much bleach and the smell of bleach would be circulated by the fan to the room , so be sure to add water .

Amana ABB2224DES Stainless Steel Bottom Refrigerator is warm however the freezer works fine. How do I solve this problem? I vacuumed the coil and renoved most of the dust accumulation. Is there a way...


check freezer for frost build up and if FAN is blowing, check condenser, make sure its clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, controls should be in the middle setting, make sure u didnt turn up freezer control cutting air supply to refrigertor side should be 1/2 feel vent coming from freezer see if you feel any air coming in to refrig.
