No power at all changed fuse checked sockets made a horrible smell and very hot

There is a reset switch on the side of the metal control box beside the compressor, the horrible smell I guess is burnt insulation (acrid burnt smell). There are lots of possibilities for this,
1. Is the condenser clean, that's the grill that looks like a car radiator,
2. The condenser fan may be faulty, no fan noise when it starts
3. Electrical component burnt out, this depends on when the smell occurs.
4. Compressor leads, capacitors or relay.

Sorry but I think you are going to have to find your local ice machine guy to check this out.

You can reset the machine as above, but if the problem is critical you may do more damage than good

Best wishes

Refrigerator smells horrible , but there is NOTHING spoiled in it.

You might have something smelly in the defrost drain pan. The easiest thing to do would be to take the back off the fridge and see if the defrost drain pan smells bad...if so just clean it out with soap and hot water. don't use anything too strong smelling to clean it though, you don't want your fridge to smell like bleach or pine sol.

Good Luck!

Kenmore elite ice and freezer smell. Ice tastes disgusting. we have a whole house water filter so the problem is not the water. any thing put in the freezer will end up smelling like the bad ice and the...

Keeping baking soda in the freezer has little chance of actually absorbing any odor causing air because the air is too dense. Two solutions I can recommend is to either turn the freezer to its HIGHEST setting so it doesn't freeze anything and try the baking soda again, or the second is very inconvenient, but I've seen it work, is to unplug the unit and place a container of Damp Rid in it for a couple of days.

Check the inside of the freezer and ensure there are no cracks in the lining as moisture can get in there and cause horrible smells, especially if you have ever put meat (especially poultry) and the package leaked before freezing.

We have an older whirlpool dishwasher and it has the most horrible smell inside the chamber is there something we caan do to get rid of that smell Is there somewhere where we can maybe clean out a filter...

Try chopping a few ice cubes in the disposall dry (no water running) only until the ice is crushed. Then run water through it while running. This will help to clean under blades and to scrape the sides etc. Then get some citrus peels and run those through (with water running). I like to use lemon peels.
There is also a dishwasher cleaner that you can buy from your local grocery store by the d/w detergents and the jet dry.

The ice has a bad taste to it.Cleaned all the parts and cleaned out the freezer. But the ice maker has a bad smell and the ice taste horrible.

Its possibly because of damp air cant dump out by the device as quickly as should be. It stays there longer than normally do and stuck on the foods etc. At no-frost devices there are a heater to keep machine working in normal way. If this heater is faulty or not working as it was before, this could be the reason.

You may experience bad cooling performance in the future (due to the clogged air ducts/passages by forming ice).

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell

Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.

Hello margrek


Ice has bad odor and taste.

1• Ice has picked up odor or
flavor from strong food stored
in refrigerator or freezer.
2• Water running to ice maker
has poor taste or odor.
3• Ice not used frequently enough.
4• Cover foods tightly. Discard stale ice. Ice maker will
produce fresh supply.
5• Add filter to water supply line. Consult a water purifying
7• Discard stale ice.
