What is the odd chemical smell my freezer fan is blowing?


If the fan wont stop then it could be the motor on the unit that is overheating. The other thing would be the defrost coil.

Strong Odor when running


The smell is coming from the condenser heating up which should be located all around the outside of the box. When it is in pull down from being warm the condenser will get very hot and the smell would be the spray foam and any other chemicals in the vicinity heating up. When heated up to a certain point they will off gas and you may get a smell. After a little wile the smell should go away for good.

Very bad smell coming from my Samsung refrigerator


most refrigerators have a small drainage hole leading from the inside rear of the compartment to an overflow container behind the unit, pull the unit away from the wall and check if the liquid in the container has become stagnant, if so simply clean it out and run a small amount of bleach down the hole to disinfect the tube.
hope this helps.

Some lights do not work on control panel of RS261mdrs. Circuit board was replaced under warranty but has apparently failed again. How do I remove/replace the circuit board, do not see how to remove the...


For removal of the panel, there are 2 friction retainers which can be accessed from below. You have to push them up with a small flat-blade screw driver, then gently pull the panel out. You will likely need to use a knife edge to get the panel started out.
You will need to disconnect the wiring plug once the panel is free.
The circuit board may be removed by removing 4 phillips head screws.

The ice from my ice maker has a chemical taste...how do I get rid of it?


Run about 3 cycles of vinegar; then rinse with water. Run regular water through and then the ice should lose the chemical smell and taste.

Gassy smell in upright freezer


Is this a refrigerator in a household or an RV?
The reason I ask is that RV refrigerators use ammonia, which you can smell. If you read the article you probably read that Freon does not have an odor, in extreme cases you can smell burnt refrigeration oil when a system with a large leak has been left running, but by then the unit wouldn't be working.
If your refrigerator did in fact have a leak it wouldn’t be working, due to such a small amount of refrigerant present. ( typically about 5 ounces )
So, your gassy smell is likely from something else. I find this happens most often when potatoes or carrots are stored for long periods of time in the refrigerator, usually in the crispers. When starchy vegetables wilt ( get smaller with age ) they give off a gas. The smell eventually comes not from the starch, but from the bacteria that starts growing on it. All this happens on a microscopic level so you won't see anything. good luck
