How do I get rid of bad smell in the freezer part of my Zanussi fridge freezer ZBB 6286. Pilot light and fast freeze light are flashing.

first cut a potato in half and push it ion the middle of the freezer, it will absorb the airborne bacteria and reduce the smell . leave in freezer for about 2 hours then take out an throw away. next pour bicarbinate of soda into a bowl and put it into the freezer also leave overnight and smell should be gone

Kelvinator Cyclic 330, Model No: CS334A-R

Tonight, get a battery flash light, turn it on, put it in the fridge and close the fridge door. Then turn off all the lights in the room. If you can see any light escaping around the fridge door, the door seals aren't working properly, and need replacing.
This is the main reason why too much water is being condensed and causing your fridge drip tray to overflow.

If you are lighting the pilot corectly and waiting for the thermo couple to warm up and then setting it to on, then the thermo couple is probably bad. Good luck!

I emptied my fridge, unplugged it, and went on vacation for 6 weeks. when i returned it would not work. when i plugged it in, the inside light turned on but that's it. eventually, i found an small orange...

Good day,
If that shaft you turn will only turn clockwise, then it is the timer.
If so, it sounds as iffy the contacts internally are bad.
It's non-repairable, so you will have to remove the top cover, and remove the timer and replace it.
Kenmore is a brand name for Sears. The machine actually can be a G.E., Frigidaire, or Whirlpool. If you choose, you can take the timer to most decent sized appliance parts houses, and they can cross the numbers and provide you with a new one.

If you don't want to shut the machine down that long, take the complete model number of the machine and call Either Sears or an appliance parts house. Popular item, you should have no issue getting a new one.

We have a gas wall heater product number 4690011 and we do not know how to start it;

Remember if you smell gas, turn unit manual gas valve off and open a near by window, wait until smell is gone then proceed with these directions,turn manual gas valve back on, turn thermostat down.1.) turn combination gas valve knob to the pilot position and press down knob, if unit has a striker button, push striker while holding down knob until pilot lights, keep knob held down in the pilot position for 20 seconds then let up on knob and turn to the on position, turn thermostat up, main burners should light.

Gas oven turns on but no heat. Think pilot light is out but can't find it. Kenmore model 91130469893

Not sure how old your range is but most haven't had pilot lights for some years. The ovens use either a kind of hot-wire igniter or a spark gap for ignition. Check the Sears parts site for your model number and I think you'll find an illustrated parts breakdown that can be very helpful in diagnosing problems.
