Weird smell in Refrigerator

We have a weird kind of chemical smell in the refrigerator and freezer. Everything works fine, it cools, makes ice. Someone said it may be a thermostat, timer or something burned up. I don't know. The refrigerator is only a couple of years old.

How long had it been plugged in when you started to smell the burn. What kind of burn do you smell, is it an electrical burning smell or a smoldering dust burning smell.

SOURCE: Ice maker stopped working

are the "fingers" of the icemaker pointed toward you and slightly up? if not the icemaker is internally broken . is the red light to the right blinking twice and then a one second pause? if not the emmitter is broken. is the black hose coming from the ceiling blocked with ice ? if so the water vave is broken allowing water to seep in hose and freeze. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator Wont dispense ice

if you lift out the ice bucket you will see the "gear" that turns the auger. The gear is metal but the part on the bucket is plastic and this can become stripped out. Also check that there is not ice frozen around the bottom of the bucket where an ice cube may have lodged the chute door partially open and melted some of the ice in the bottom creating a blockage.

SOURCE: Plastic burning smell coming from bottom front vents.

u may need to unplug it then tip it enough to see under it to see if maybe a mouse chewed on some wires and try to rewire or electic tape on some bare wires

SOURCE: Refrigerator Sounds Weird

The noise is caused by the bearings in the fan motor going bad. If not replaced soon, it will quit working, and could cause considerable damage to the compressor. Have a technician look at it.

Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

The fan is making a weird noise and when i open the door it stops but when it stops in makes a loud noise and the temp on the fridge wont stay down but the freezer is fine what is the problem


You have a twin cooling unit and the refrigerator fan is getting clogged up with ice possibly due to a defrost problem. You will need to remove the back wall panel of the refrigerator to access the evaporator fan motor and clean it out of the excess ice buildup. Check the defrost circuits and also the defrost drain to make sure it's clear.

Kenmore side-by-side has CHEMICAL SMELL ODOR inside.


You have a freon leak. With this only being 5 years old, iot's probably worth repairing, unless you are just able to buy a new one. I would have a local tech come out and check it before tossing it. I hope this answers your question and gives you some resolution. I hope to work with you again, so please record our name, email and phone number for future needs. Have a great evening!

Ice and Refrigerator and Freezer smell like alcohol chemical


I believe that you might have a coolant leak causing the chemical odor. You really should get it checked out by a fridge repair-person because it's not healthy to breathe in the fumes.

Orange light in the lower part of freezer


pants, don't worry about this, your refer was going into defrost. When this happens, the defrost heater turns on to melt the ice off the evaporator in the freezer comp. Last's about 20 minutes and sometimes you can see the glow and hear the ice hitting the heater...Catriver.
