SOURCE: Kenmore top freezer fishy smell
if it has an icemaker attached, this may cause your problem. to get rid of the fishy smell, get a box of baking soda, open it a little, and stick it somewhere in your freezer. this will help to filter the air and make it fresher. Also some vegetables can cause this noxious smell, especially if cooked then frozen or if a box or bag of bad frozen vegetables has been stored in the freezer. Our freezer recently had a problem with the icemaker making it smell musty, like after a rain, wet dirt, and I have yet to find a real solution to this problem other than baking soda.

There are a few of possibilities
Switch off and unplug before trying these.
1. You may not have got all the dust out of the condenser, sometimes you need to shine a torch through from the back and see if all the fins are clean, if not then a soft brush can be used with the vacuum cleaner to remove the rest of the dust.
2. There is a small temperature sensor either just behind the condenser or sometimes pushed in between the fins, this may have dust on it or it may be faulty. If it's faulty and you are competent with electrics it is fairly easy to change.
3. Is there a fan at the back of the condenser, and if so does it work. Again if it is not working its easy to change if you are competent.
However if you are not happy with electrics then you will need your local reputable service guy
