Kathleen, you'll have to provide an accurate model number from the inside of your fridge for us to pull up any tech data on it. Open the door and look toward the ceiling of the fridge. But, from what you describe, it sounds like a thermister problem not a thermostat problem. A thermister is a small, temperature sensitive device that communicates with the computer to tell it what temperature its' location is at any given moment. The computer then adjusts air flow dampers, defrost cycles and cooling times accordingly. There can be many thermisters in any given refrigerator model line. These are inexpensive to purchase and easy to replace, but sometimes difficult to locate. They are usually hidden behind a small plastic shell, that looks completely unobtrusive. But they are easy to recognize for they have 2 white wires going into them that are tightly bonded together. To find them, you'll have to gut the fridge (food, shelves and all) and look closely. Focus your attention toward the area of the problem, the lower shelves/crispers. You may need to pull the rear panel out to find it, but when you do replace it. (UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE FIRST!) Hope this gives you something to go on. If not, provide your full model number so we can assist further.

SOURCE: Fridge smells
Are there any drip channels in the back or bottom of the interior of the unit that may be clogged? These channels collect condensate and feed them to a pan under most refrigerators. I assume you have removed bottom food storage drawers and cleaned inside. Also try open box of baking soda which absorbs odors.

SOURCE: refrigerator smells strange
I may have found the problem. I pulled out the Fridge again. The odor was in the water pan.
What I found was that the cooling grills in the front was caked with dust. I vacumed this area but it was not until I got down with a flash light and saw this issue. I took a small duster that uses static to pull the dust out. There was a lot. I will see if the smell starts up again.

Sounds like the condenser fan motor is either jammed or has failed. if you wil pull the refrig from the wall and remove the lower compartment cover you will see the fan I'm reffering to as well as the condenser coil and compressor. if the fan has failed you can put a house fan blowing into this compartment to keep the unit operational until you can get it repaired. thanks for using FixYa Peyton
