    Hello,

    My wife was cleaning the freezer in an old Bauknetch fridge/freezer and accidentally broke one of the gas conduct pipes. A strong odour is keep coming out of the freezer. I applied a quick-leak repar putty but the odour feels still a bit. The freezer is working but of course is not freezing anything. I am sure it need to replace the lost refrigeration gas. Do anyone knows how can I get that done? Thanks

Sears Kenmore refrigerator odor in freezer?


A quick phone call to Sears or a local appliance service center may be in order. Since the evaporator that cools everything is located inside or very near the back of the freezer and the freezer has the lowest air circulation of the entire refrigerator, I would suspect a small refrigerant leak. Many refrigerants have strong odorizing chemicals added for just this purpose. Natural gas for heating has these same chemicals to warn us of the danger if a leak occurs. If it is a leak it's not dangerous, but very soon you will come home to a warm fridge and thawed food. Prior to that you'll hear the fridge running constantly as it tries to maintain the proper temp.

Hope you would have cleaned fridge and started using immediately. Don't do it.
Power off. Takeslightly wet cloth (dipped in soap water) andclean all portion.And after 5 minutes clean with dry cloth. Keep fridge door opened for minimum 6 hours to allow fresh air passing into fridge compartment. And then place foodsin airtight containers to prevent the transfer of odors. Now close fridge door and plug power.

There is a chemical-like odor coming from our refrigerator. We have been in our condo 14 years and it was here when we moved in. We've had absolutely no problems with it but this odor has us concerned....


older refrigerators used a fiberglass / plastic mat for insulation this will eventually break down and, emit ammonia-like fumes; time to replace the refrigerator.
