I would take the machine outside and blast it with a hose. use hot water mixed with bleach and dish detergent to clean the inside  thoroughly.

Frigidaire refrigerator compressor overheated when I left the door opne.


the motor of the compressor may have tripped on overload protection. Allow it to cool down and then unplug the fridge then plug it back in and try to run it. It should run. Be advised that the condenser coils underneath need to be clean. You should have a strong person tilt the empty fridge while you vacuum and clean all the dust and lint off the coils. Be gentle as these coils are fragile and are easily damaged. Hope this helps.

Your problem could be caused by a clogged drainage tube. even though you may have removed the ice it may still have a clog. my suggestion would be to take all of the contents out of your fridge and let it sit unplugged for atleast 24-48 hours with the doors open this will eliminate any left over ice that may be clogging your drain tube. if this dosent help then you may have a defrost heater problem, or possibly a defrost termination switch problem. as for the smell i know that vinegar works well for getting rid of odor. ther eis also a product you can purchase called fridge aid, it is a charcoal based air purifier and should work well.

The door was left open and things thawed out, is there a tray or drain I need to clean. It smells even after I have cleaned it.


there is a condensate pan under the freezer, but when the compressor is on, the heat from the high-side line evaporates it. but still check to see if there is too much.

Trying to see if it has a drain plug


FILL 1 or 2 shelves with crumpled up newspaper . The ink in the newspaper , will absorb odor . May take a while , but it's the only proven way I know of , to remove fish odor . May have to change paper every couple of days , till the odor is gone .

Layer of water on bottom of freezer,causing problem opening bottom drawer, having to use hair dryer to thaw.


If it is a frostless your drain tube is plugged. The water cannot go through the whole to the drip pan so it flows over into the freezer. Unplug the freezer and leave the door open all day to thaw. Or take the back wall out of the freezer and unthaw the drain tube with hot water and a hair dryer.

Kenmore upright freezer


reason is that the evaporator is blocked with ice and hence no air circulation.

switch off for 24 hours with doors open
or
remove back panel inside freezer and melt ice off with a hairdryer

Amana self defrosting upright freezer - drain plug


The subject is a Eureka Model 350 hand held steamer that can be found at Lowes and other places for around $49.95. With this steamer you can thaw out an evaporator as quick as if you were using a heat gun or hair dryer but without the slightest concern about melting plastic or wiring. By using steam instead of pouring water (yes many still do) there is little to clean up. With the many attachments it comes with there are other uses (i.e. cleaning, thawing drains, thawing IDI fill tubes, etc.). The steam also makes the replacement IDI fill tube (rubber end) more pliable and easier to complete the installation when used at the end.
This unit has a trigger and can be used to blow out a stopped up drain on a refrigerator by letting the pressure build up a little then blow through the drain with one of the attachments. As for thawing out evaporators it had a fine jet tip for actually CUTTING through solid ice.
Another great use for this tool is refrigerator door gaskets. The hot steam works faster than a heat gun with out the worry.

Note: Do not aim steam directly onto the plastic freezer liner. The rapid temperature change could damage the liner.
