Odd smell when plugged in. smells almost like a lubricant or diaper cream. we've cleaned and bleached everywhere we can. it doesn't smell unless it is running and it is not inside the refrige


in the freezer behind the back inside wall of the freezer there's an evaporator fan motor that could cause this if you were smelling this inside,there's also a condenser fan motor in the back bottom of the machine that blows when it's running,pull out the machine,remove the bottom back panel and check the fan motor to see if any oil is leaking out of the motor.

About 5 days ago I noticed a strong chemical smell (like open permanent markers or nail polish remover) in my kitchen. The smell permiates the whole house, but is strongest in the kitchen area when I close...


No. The coolant cannot leak as a liquid and soak into the floor. Also, the smell of the coolant (refrigerant) does not have the acetone/ketone/laquer thinner smell that you are describing, and if someway the smell originated from the frig, the smell would without a doubt be inside the frig as well. You need to look frosome container stored in a cabinet or stored on conrete floor that has rusted or opened some way and the thinner/cleaner/solvent has leaked from such a containerwithout notice. Goodluck, Macgivor

I smelled an electrical burning smell and noticed that my freezer items were thawing. Is it the motor?


If your refer is over four years old and a Kenmore good odds are higher than not that the compressor has failed.

Frisdge/freezer and ice smell


I had a side by side refrigerator with an Ice maker from Sears. The ice it makes smell fishy so bad that I could not use to drink with anything else but throw away to the plants. So I unscrewed the ice maker . It is not that bad, but quite simple to take it out. I noticed rusted pieces of metal generating strong fishy smell. I could not get rid of rust with soap, detergent, oil so I wrap it in plastic bag then screw it back into the refrigerator. Screwing back the ice maker. Voila. The smell is going away. The ice is good. Pina Colada and Daiquiri here we go .
