Re: kenmore side by side
You need to elaborate more. If it's just the light quit working, then check the bulb first, if it's good then use a meter to check if you are getting power to the socket (red lead to middle contact, black one to the metal ring) check with meter on ACV at setting 200 or so and it should read 110-121V. If that's good then keep backtracing until you find the problem.

OK, the digital logic being out reminds me of the possibility the mother board or circuit board has gone out. If you can get the complete model number on inside of fresh food compartment door frame, near bottom of door, I will be able to help you better. While I wait I will try to look up similar models and get better answers for you. Thanks, Sea Breeze
it is either the start switch on the side of the compressor or the compressor itself.
the buzzing sound is the start switch trying to start the compressor and the click is the overload on the start switch kicking it out.
the start switch is bad or the compressor is pulling too much amps = bad compressor.
I would assume you have a bad self defrosting motor. This motor generally is used to cycle heat at certain points to keep the unit from allowing the condansation from freezing inside the refridg. I am assuning the smell is this motor heating up. Should the motor quit, it is normally not a fire hazard but should be taken care of. You'll need to remove the back panel of the refridg and you'll see the minuture motor and probably hear is making noise. Always be sure to unplug the refridg before opening the back panel or any service to prevent shock. Good luck
Evaporator is probably overiced as a result od door not being completly closed at some time recently, turn off and defrost overnight with the doors open, turn on the next day and it should work ok within 24hrs.
