The evaporator tray is inside the bottom "kickplate". It is formed of flimsy plastic and must be lifted out carefully to avoid dumping contents. Dump it in the sink for subsequent scrubbing clean. Also, check the drainage tube in the bottom rear of the freezer compartment for clogging. It will have to be reamed (with a chopstick) and flushed to remove residue. Be sure to have the plastic tray back in place to catch drainage from the flushing operation and repeat the tray cleaning operation.
One final thing: Put an open box of bicarbonate of soda inside the refrigerator section to absorb residual odor. Good luck!

try glass cleaner..... the transparent stuff, not the milky sort.

You have a defrost system failure and needs to be checked.

You can manually defrost for a temp fix. Turn it off, take everything out of the freezer, use a hairdryer to warm the back wall, 20-30 min, put everything back, turn it back on and you should be good for a couple of days.

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Is the condenser fan turning? Is the evaporater fan turning? Check the evaporater at the freezer compartment it should have fine frost all the way if no frost or partly frosted may be low on freon.Be sure there is no air leaks around door or something. Hope this helps.

You have a bad start capicator. Remove the circut board cover and you will see the cap. It is a little bigger than a C sized battery and it is white. Replace it with a new one and you will be fine

Look at the top and bottom of the door. There should be two holes near the edge. If there is then you just remove the hinges by the screws and place them on the other side of the fridge and flip the door over. At that point your shelves should be able to be flipped also. But if the manual does not say anything then your doors may not be able to be switched

Frost in the rear of freezer possibly caused by door staying open.  Door staying open possibly caused by frost buildup on ref door track.  Start by making sure the teeth on the freezer track are clear of ice and frost.  This should allow you to shut the freezer door.  Next check the freezer seal.  If it is not completely sealed it it will build up frost. It is also possible that the frost in the rear of the freezer is from a failure in the defrost cycle as the evap coils are at the back of the freezer. If this is the case your refrigerator is probably getting warmer.

Immediately turn off power to heater. One of two things has happened. Either: A. The electrical contacts in one of the thermostats has welded together, necessitating replacement of the thermostat(s). (in this case I would recommend replacing both upper and lower thermos) or B. The lower element has burnt through, and because there is 120 volts to the lower element at all times (it normally only heats when the thermos complete the circuit to give it a path to the other "hot", putting a full 240 volts on it) a section of the element will continue to heat up to the point where the break allows the current to complete it's path to neutral ground via the water in the tank. It can continue to heat until the high limit safety thermo trips out. (the red reset button on the upper thermostat)
If either condition exists, the high limit safety thermo should trip out power to the heater before boiling water, and thus steam, is produced. Even if the safety thermo should fail to cut power, the pressure / temperature relief valve should open, releasing excessive pressure. If that should also fail to open, due to corrosion or such, the water heater will create steam and can actually result in explosion, and possible injury or death!
Several years ago I came across one that was boiling and when I turned on a hot water faucet to relieve the pressure it filled the entire basement with steam. (I still shutter to think if I didn't catch that fast enough I or someone else could have been killed)

The most likely cause of your extra hot water is actually the lower element. After you turn off power to the heater, turn off the water supply to the heater, open a hot water faucet to allow air to enter the tank and drain the tank. Remove the lower element. A bad element is usually visually apparent. If it looks good, you would have to test it with an ohm meter. (should be about 20 ohms if it is good) Install new element, turn on water and fill until water flows steadily from the hot water faucet you left open. Now you can turn the faucet off and turn power back on to heater.

Yes, that is one problem.  The refrigerant needs to remove the excess heat through the condenser coils.  If the air flow is blocked, it will do those symptoms you described.

Sounds like a thermistat problem. Check its connections and replace the thermistat.

5,6,7 is a fault code saying the defrost circuit is not working. The unit only goes into defrost about once a day so that explains why it works for a while then comes back.
