Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Kenmore Refrigerator - The refrigerator, which as purchased in 2002, stopped working yesterday. We had a cleaner clean the house - she pulled out the fridge, and cleaned under and inside fridge - we noticed it has stopped working after she left. The fan is running, and the compressor feels hot to the touch, but the freezer and fridge are room temperature (we turned temp control to lowest level).

Icemaker wont work,what to do?


Try pulling the fridge out from the wall and making sure the intake hose from the water line isn't clogged, as can happen with hard water. A pipe-cleaner from the craft section at Walmart can be used to clean it out if it is.

Is there a way to clean the coils under my Kenmore refrigerator? I have used the vacuum cleaner to get as much as I can, but I can only clean the front of the coils.

I just moved into a house 10 days ago. I don't know how old the appliances in the kitchen are, but I would guess +/-20 years. There is a very strong solvent-like (sort of like lighter fluid) smell...


I would shut down the refrigerator and give it a good clean out with soap n water, if it is cooling ok i suspect the previous owners cleaned it with an abrasive cleaner like oven cleaner. Freon really does not smell that bad...maybe a little like propane.

Odor from outside of Refrigerator


pull out the fridge and remove the back panel, and clean that area. Make sure no food is stuck under the fridge also. A rotten piece of fruit or other food, once under there, will smell until it totally decomposes. We have seen this before. Hope this helps!
