My ref. and freezer have a chemical type smell have cleaned both out with vinager but odor still there and seams stronger could it be the appliance it self causing odor I found no bad food at all Thanks mike
The only thing that would cause a chemical type of odor inside the unit would be a control board that has burnt. This unit has a control board in the refrigerator compartment. Other than that the unit itself will not produce a chemical odor.
Freezer does Not cool properly.
Back side of freezer has froze up.
Answer Hello Sandra. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
