SOURCE: Inside top of refrigerator hot light don't turn off.

There is a service bulletin related to this, dealing with deformation / melting of the lamp cover. The fix is to change the lamp wire harness to one that now has a thermal protector incorporated in it (part number 6621JK2003B) along with changing the main PCB board to one that uses a larger relay for this function (part number 6871JB1423N).

In case you want or need to replace the following,
The lamp cover is part number 3110JA1096A and the lamp holder is part number 3034JA1009A

I tried to cut and paste a few photo's, but was unsuccessful. Sorry. Make sure to test that fans and light switches work after part changes.

SOURCE: have alful odor in freezer and ref,had some things

Sorry that has happened to you. The only way to get the smell out is to clean all of the inside sections of the freezer and fresh food section with a good cleaner and warm water. Unplug and remove the rear panel in back of freezer and wash the evaporator coils with warm water and Clorox solution. When done in that way the solution goes down the defrost condensate drain to the pan below the refrigerator and it also disinfects the smell that has accumulated from inside the refrigerator and freezer and ends up being returned into the air inside your home from the condensate collection pan that uses the heat from compressor and fan to replace the moisture inside you home. Thanks, Good Luck, It Works! Sea Breeze

SOURCE: terrible odor coming from refrigerator.

I know this might sound weird but there might be a dead rodent or other small animal under the fridge or squeezed in between small parts. This happened to us but it was not the fridge; it was the air-conditioning unit. If this has happened in your case, the smell will be really bad for a while and eventually go away when the animal has fully decayed.
Even if it is not a dead mouse, here is a good website that gives you the names of effective odour neutralising products. It's definitely worth having a look at.
Good luck.

Freezer area smells and ice cubes and butter taste off?

It sounds like the ice maker if equiped. Remove Ice bin and clean out,and try a lite spray of bleach or vinegar (don't mix) If the smell is still happening and comming from ice you may want to install a inline filter.

Foul odor from back area of fridge/Kenmore bottom freezer

I had the same problem, but just fixed it. I have a maytag bottom freezer and when the fan blower comes on, there was a foul/stale smell that permeated the kitchen. There is no drip pan that I could remove to clean.

I just removed four screws from the back cover of the fan blower area, reached in with a small cup of organic odor remover and poured it into the drip pan just under the fan blower.

Any odor remover would work. probably vinegar or enzyme odor remover would work, too.

I now have fresh smell when the fan blower comes on.

I have electrocool LG MOdel# GR-382R ser# 206MR17803. my bottom fridge cooler area is freezing up.

I have the same problem.It seems that the gasket around the freezer door and fridge door are no longer tightly adhering to the fridge therefore allowing the cool air from the freezer to continiuously entering the fridge storage and making evreything freeze up. I am trying to find out if I can purchase new gaskets and install them myself.
Any recommendation on where to find these and how to install them?
