SOURCE: noisy F&P fridge freezer

Most of f&p make this noise its most annoying, but could also be ice buildup on the fan blades, creaking and cracking is normal as the pipes expand and contract is these thin foamwall fridges, not nice fridges, insulation has been compromised to lower cost, they work twice as hard at keeping cool

Sounds like the water hose to the ice maker has come loose. Is it in warranty?

SOURCE: fridge is leaking from freezer to top shelf

This is the drain tube that runs in the back of the freezer on the bottom is pluged. Take a sprayer with some hot water in it and flush out the system. Remove the food so that you dont get any of the stuff on it.

SOURCE: I've punctured a hole in the lining of the freezer

It sounds like you have punctured the evaporator coil and it is leaking refridgerant.

That would certainly cause the unit to be low on refridgerant which would cause it to start warming up, and becoming louder. It would also explain the smell.

If the unit is fairly new it *may be worth repairing, You will likely need a new coil.

Expect costs in the 300 to 500 range.
I reccomend getting a secondary place to store the food, and unplugging the unit emediatly if you want to have it repaired.

The reason for that is because the compressor is likely undamaged at this point. but if it runs on empty it will soon fail and then you can double the repair price or more.

SOURCE: Pooling of water in fridge compartment of my Neff fridge/freezer

The defrost drain is clogged. Defrost drains usually get there clog right behind the back freezer panel. Remove this to get to the defrost drain and remove all built up ice and clear the drain and you should be fine. Hope this helps.

The fridge and freezer smell like a dead animal. cleaned the inside with bleach but still smells for weeks. model w10212088


There are two reasons for bad smells. 1. Long time not being used. 2. Lack of cleaning inside compartment.

Solution: Unplug fridge. Keep open fridge door. Dip a dry cloth in soap water and start cleaning each and every compartment. Keep freezer door also open. And then clean with another dry cloth. Keep both doors open for nearly 5 hrs. It will be enable fresh air to **** the smell inside fridge.
After 5 hrs close the fridge and run on empty for one hour. Keep food items after one hour. Please keep all food items closed vessel. Not only it's avoid odor but also be hygienic.
If you use to keep fish items in freezer, clean fridge once in a week.(Spray roo spray in the room when you keep fridge door opened. Don't spray into fridge.)Helpful.

Turn off the fridge. Remove the freezer bins in the bottom. Defrost the drain line with a hair dryer.It is on the lower back portion of the freezer. Break up the ice on the freezer floor and dispose of it.
Discard any old freezer food. Change out the water supply line with a copper line if you are using a plastic line.

Fridge smell


check the pipes at the back of the fridge, it could be that one of the pipes has a crack and is leaking gas or oil. If not check the inside of the fride for a brown oily residue. This indicates a leak. Don't turn the fridge back on becasue if the oil and gas mix then the fridge will no longer be usable. If you find either of these get an engineer to fix the problem.

I presume you have a house hold fridge if so you could be smelling a freon leak. It is a repulsive smell and you would notice it more during the cooling cycle. Is there any oily film inside or on the back of the fridge if so that is another sign. If you have a Recreational Vehicle it will smell more like ammonia and have yellow residue

Ice and Refrigerator and Freezer smell like alcohol chemical


I believe that you might have a coolant leak causing the chemical odor. You really should get it checked out by a fridge repair-person because it's not healthy to breathe in the fumes.

I am having problems with my samsung fridge model - SR-S2028CSS


does it freeze at all? you may have a problem with the coolent in the back of the fride which if so (depending on the cost of the fride) may be cheaper to replace, also the dial you use for selecting the freeze level could be faulty
