I have a Kenmore Elite refrigerator model number 59673503201 and there is a terrible fish smell coming from the bottom portion of the appliance where the freezer is. It is not coming from trash, or food...


Please note when you keep fish in freezer once, the smell will be longer even you remove it. O.K. Now solution for your problem- Please unplug power.Keep fridge door open. Take wet cloth dipped in soap water and clean all compartment including freezer . Keep freezer door also opened.Then clean with dry cloth. Spray room spray in your room not into the fridge. And allow 5 hrs to circulate fresh air to pass thr' your fridge and then close fridge and freezer doors. Plug fridge and run for one hour on empty. After one hour store items in fridge and/or freezer.
Keep all food items in closed style which will avoid odor spreading and also be a hygienic. Thanks.

Refrigerator is not very cold. Freezer is not


Our side by side did the same, started because the cooling coils on the bottom (although cleaned regularly), still overworked due to build up of dust and especially pet hair. The heating coil in the freezer compartment which prevents ice buildup in modern (frost-free) units kicks on full time and the compressor can't compensate, thus your perishables start to thaw. Luckily we were still under warranty. hope this helps you at least start diagnosing the problem.

It sounds like the fan in the freezer behind the rear panel is not working. You should be able to hear it. It won't run with the door open so hold the door switch in.

Kenmore bottom freezer 73504. All freezer items fully defrosted.


I went to local.google.com to find fridge repair person nearby. They were able to come out the same day and solve the problem. The starter kit for the compressor was replaced. Sears couldn't make it until the following Monday when I called them on a Wednesday. I highly recommend shopping local and keeping the home town economy moving.

Everything freezes in bottom of refrigerator


Check that all seals are completely sealed, especially the freezer door. If the freezer door leaks, the bottom of fridge will constantly be cold. Also, check the flap in the inside back. It controls the air between freezer and fridge. It may be putting more air flow to fridge rather than freezer. The cold air will sink low and keep the drawer are colder.

Freezer seems as if it is not cold enough


Your sensor is packed in ice and giving false reading (always frozen)

You NEED to defrost. Will take 2hr

Turn off or Pull plug on freezer
Take everything out and put in cooler, brown bags, large bin or boxes to stay cold
Defrost by setting large pail of boiling water in each side bottom of freezer and closing door(s) for 1/2hr
Open freezer, empty pails in sink and use pails to hold large chunks of ice from freezer that will come out easily
Toss out ice chunks
Check sensor to be sure it is no longer packed in ice
Wipe down interior dry
close doors
plug in
wait 1/2hr
reload with stuff you want to keep
Done!

First lets decide where your leak actually is.

Areas to consider:
This is mostlikely a stopped up drain pan. A cold area that is not suppose to be cold likewhen you have a freezer coil that is suppose to be defrosting and is not... Seebelow for a more complete ideas list of things to check under Possibility.

The drain pan drain line is themost common. Inspect it and repair as needed, maybe its just a wrapper over the exit hole of the pan.
Some more Possibility's:

1 There is a drain that carries away the water under the cooling coils. Thesecoils are in the freezer section. Its most likely clogged or froze up.

2 The ice maker could be letting water leak all the way down look for an icy trail from the ice maker area.

3 Door gaskets are not sealing especially on the bottom of the door. Thisallows warmer air into the fridge section and it is condensation on floor underthe crisper.

If you check all of these items and still cant find it please post back andtell me what you did find. So I can help you more. Please rate me as much aspossible as Im trying to keep my average up and do the things that willactually educate and help people.

THANK you for using fixya and good luck..
