Question about GE GSH22SGRSS Side by Side Refrigerator

Fridge & Freezer smell like a gas grille...

Hello! I just moved into a new place and have a GE side-by-side stainless steel refrigerator. For some reason, the smell of a gas grill has permeated throughout the freezer and fridge. When I first moved in a week ago, I thought someone was grilling outside but soon found out it is the fridge...any ideas what the problem is and how I can fix it?

Do you mean it smells like propane? Or does it smell like propane exhaust (think taxi cab or fork lift)?

Either sounds pretty serious. I have heard of people using hydrocarbons to recharge refrigeration systems, though it is not the recommended method.

Do you own your residence or do you rent? Either way, call a repair man or the management of your rental right away and insist to have it inspected.

Fridges might smell like plastic or stale air if not used in awhile, but not propane/exhaust that I have ever heard of.

Does conversion from LP gs to Natural gas on Ducane 30400040 (essentially makes it a model 30400041) require changing the inlet orofice on the IR burner ? I purchased conversion kit that included all new...


Did the conversion kit give you an LP orifice for every new gas valve? LP gas orifices have smaller holes than Nat gas orifices. Can you smell gas when you turn on the IR burner by itself? Some burners styles have an air adjustment on the end that fits over the orifice. Make sure it's getting enough air. Also make sure your ignitor sparker is positioned where the spark can ark against the top of the burner. Ducane grills have rotary ignitors, so turn it (with gas off) and see if you can actually see where it's sparking. If it's not sparking in the right place, it will be difficult to light.

Refrigerator Door Lost Suction


I have a GE Profile Stainless Steel side by side. I also noticed that the refrigerator side door was not sealing like it had previously. There was no "suction" when opening. I started inspecting the gasket around the door to see if this needed replaced, as I had read that may be the problem from this forum. My particular model has the grill / vent at the bottom of the door, in the front, which just pops off. I found that down by the grill my model has magnets there that match up with magnets on the bottom of the doors. I inspected this and found a foreign object had attached itself to this magnet. I removed this object and waaahlaaah the door now has suction! I was relieved to find that I didn't need to replace the gasket. Worth a try. Hope this helps.
