Service manual

Having the area around the door getting warm is normal but getting hot may indicate a defective condenser fan motor or the condenser coils have become blocked with dust. You are going to need to unplug power, pull your refrigerator away from the wall, remove the front kick plate and the rear cover on the back of your refrigerator to get to the condenser coil and fan just to see what is going on. If the fan is not running strong when plugged in then there may be a problem with the=> 61005323 Condenser Fan Motor Above is a video that will help you on cleaning the condenser coils. If you think there is a problem with the fan motor and would like my assistance please let me know. As for a service manual I don't believe there is one for your model number. I do have a manual that is basically the same thing if you like? Thanks Sea Breeze

Funky smell coming from bottom of frig when running


Is it a musty smell or that of something / (rodent) decomposing? If you only smell it when it is running then look for BLACK gunk that will probably appear almost like a paste. Even things like cat or dog hair will collect in damp areas. There should be a white plastic drip pan under your unit. Look for the freezer white plastic drain hose on the rear bottom of your unit on the freezer side and follow that hose to the drip pan. It catches water every time the unit defrosts which is 3 - 4 times a day depending on which defrost timer your unit has.

Usually there is a build up in the drip pan that gets mucky and then stinks like mold. It will of course need cleaned.

Also look at the fan area for the coils. Sometimes there are unwanterd home critters that attempt to get through the running fan blades and end dead up inside the cooling coil metal radiator area.

Burnt plastic smell coming from bottom of frig


This is a sign of a short and should be looked at immediately. A smell like that is a sign of something burning. I could be the start relay and start capacitor with overload. But I would not sleep with the possibility of a fire. I will look over your model and see if I can find what this could be, Sea Breeze

Evaporator fan


Check and make sure that you didn't knock a piece of insulation down onto the condenser fan when you were vacuuming off the coil. When the fan is blocked it can cause the compressor to what is called short cycle and the refer will never get up to temp. Also check your door seals. Insert a dollar bill between the gasket and frame and gently pull on it. It should be fairly tight as you check all the way around the gaskets if not you may have to replace the gaskets or adjust the door. As for the pan underneath. It should have a little moisture in it every 8 to 12 hours as it is the capture pan for the self-defrost. If not you could have a problem with your defrost heater check for ice build up on the back panel of the freezer. If there is a build up then your refer is not going into defrost and you may have a problem with the defrost heater, defrost timer, defrost thermo., etc. Be sure and check all these areas as you don't want to throw money away needlessly.
