My refrigerator once in a while smells like mildew. I opened the back and brought the temperature down and the fan for the condenser is running. I could not locate the heater under the tray below the condenser. How can I locate and replace. Does broken heater may affect the fridge lights. I am having a short in the switch side and the lighting is dead. Please help if you can. The heater is not working.
ANSWER Hello Tom,
This unit does not have a condensate pan heater. The unit uses the condenser fan and heat from the condenser and compressor to evaporate the water after the defrost cycle. On the lighting issue I would test the light switch 6600JB3007A to see if it is working properly. If it is the freezer light switch 6600JB1010K. Using a multi-meter you would go across the leads to check to make sure you have continuity when open. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
