Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
SEVERAL DAYS AGO, MY STAND ALONE FRIGIDAIRE ELECTROLUX FREEZER MODEL FFCO7KOCWO HAD A FUNNY SMELL COMING FROM IT. IT IS LOCATED ON THE ENCLOSED BACK PORCH/SEASONAL ROOM OF MY HOUSE. I WAS WONDERING IF THE SMELL COULD BE HARMFUL. IT WAS PRETTY STRONG IN THAT ROOM. SINCE THEN, THE ICE HAS MELTED AND I WAS GOING TO CLEAN IT OUT AND PLUG IT BACK IN AGAIN. DO YOU THINK IT IS SAFE? IF IT IS A BAD PART, ANY IDEA OF WHAT PART IT MIGHT BE THAT COULD CAUSE THAT SMELL? OH, AND THE SMELL WAS KIND OF LIKE A CHEMICAL, BURNING PLASTIC???
All items stored in the refrigerator and freezer should be stored in sealed packaging. Frost free refrigerator operate with a very low humidity and will pick up odors from products. Somewhat of an ozone smell will be in some frozen foods. This is a normal condition. Deodorizing packs are available on the market to absorb odors. Baking soda does the job in most cases.

A couple of things can cause this problem. One is that your defrost temp sensor is ot functioning correctly and terminating the defrost cycle early allowing ice build up to occur over time. The other thing could be that you have a torrn or loose door seal on either your freezer or your food section door. The thrird possibility is that you deftost timer is intermittent and only working part of the time or is clocking forward at a very slow rate. You can unplug the unit again and place a fan blowing into the freezer section for about 2 hours but we both know this is only a temporary situation and that you should have your unit serviced. I would call for that service either before you defrost it or 2 weeks after you defrost it.
