On a Kenmore side by side refrigerator that has two light bulb sections, what causes the lights not to work?


The door switch provides a source of power to two things. Yes the door switch can be bad. What is your model number? There was some models that left the lights on when the door was closed and people would unscrew the bulbs just to sell them to people unaware. That problem was related to a bad relay on the motherboard

Foul rotting vegetable type odor in top of Kenmore refrigerator


If the icemaker motor or heater short out it will cause a foul odor. I have never heard it described as cooked broccoli, but it can be pretty bad. Remove the icemaker and inspect the bottom of it where the heater element is and remove the white cover of the motor and look in there. You can take the three screws out of the motor module and see if anything is burned on it.
If you can rule out the icemaker, the next things to check would be the evaporator fan motor and defrost heater. Generally, if a fan motor starts causing an odor it will stop running completely and if a defrost heater goes out it will quit defrosting. It is possible, but unlikely, that something has gotten into the evaporator area and is sitting on the defrost heater so that it is "cooking" during the defrost cycle.
Check the icemaker first, it is the most likely cause of the odor. Post back with complete model number if you need further assistance and we will go through checking everything else.
