There is no way you will be able to access the insulation. One way is to clean the fridge with a solution of Chlorine and warm water, including the door gasket. You need to do both fridge and freezer. You can then put a small bag of charcoal in the fridge drawer for a while which will draw out any left over odor. Hope this helps. ratemeplease

My refrigerator is only three weeks old and it puts out a terrible smell like it is cooking on the inside or something. Please help me, the smell is making me feel sick. Thank you! Paul Rushin

Hi Paul,

Best i can suggest is for you to get in touch with your dealer or the manufacturer or their authorized service center. Such incidents would normally indicate an internal problem and any action done might be grounds for the warranty to be voided.

Though offhand, the smell can either be:
1. electrical - motor/compressor insulation burning or just drying;
2. foam/insulating materials of the casing.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Our dometic refig. stopped working on elec. have not checked the lp. but has a horrible ammonia odor what could be wrong with it

Throw it away! That is, dispose of it responsibly. If you can smell the ammonia vapour escaping, it is 99% not repairable, as it needs welding and regassing which is not an economic repair.

Bad smell in my refrigerator..clean everything out twice pulled the frig from behind the wall vacumed...put coffee grinds and baking soda..cannot find only smell it when I open the...

I suggest you get a handful of charcoal and place it on a small bowl, then put it inside your refrigirator. The charcoals will absorb the smell from your refrigirator. It is more effective than baking soda and coffee. :)

We've just returned from having the refrig off for 5 months. The fan is working, but the refig is warm and freezer freezes. We just have soda cans in the refig. WAZ ZUP? Kenmore # 70852991 Mgt 2001 ...


freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

Latch Hooks Not Working

This is a VERY common problem, and the fix can sometimes involve replacing the door.

The following site should have the latch/gasket assembly:

AFAIK, the top latch can only be replaced with the entire door gasket assembly, but it's not too difficult to do.

A google search on 'GE refrigerator latch' will find you thousands of other (former) GE customers who have had this problem.

It sounds like the interior fan has stopped. It should be located behind freezer back panel. Pull out the screws and have a look. Hope this helps. Good luck.
