We have a GE Profile Side by Side Refrigerator. We noticed water coming from the freezer this afternoon. Opened the freezer door and everything was thawed. Looked at the temp and it was like at 25 and the temp in the refrigerator was 50. Reset both to where they should be. After about an hour, nothing had changed. My husband turned off the breaker to the unit, turned it back on and reset it again. Still an hour later, the freezer is reading zero and the refrigerator is 51. Any suggestion

I have a side by side Profile and I this weekend I had a leak from the freezer which I discovered was due to the water tube to the ice maker being dislodged. I had a quite a bit of ice at the bottom of the freezer and water was flowing over this and coming out in front of the refrigerator. I fixed this and got the ice from the bottom removed. Leak is now gone but the next day I noticed the items in the refrigerator itself were not longer that cold. I can here the fan blowing but it is not ge
If it has been a big spill then definitely the remaining ice on the coils could have acted as a blanket shielding the coils and preventing them from extracting the heat. Defrosting the entire unit is the exact way of dealing with that and it should b ...

I have an Amana refrigerator, bottom freezer, model # ARB2107 AW, MFG:PHR2107AWO
This afternoon, we noticed a burning - electrical type smell coming from behind the refrigerator; more specifically from a small access panel on the bottom right side of the freezer. We checked that nothing was burning on the outside of the grill, so we took off the access panel and could see that there is a fan that is not turning. Should it be turning? and could this be the source of the smell? our local repa

We purchased a Jenn Air side by side refrigerator (JFC2089HES) about 15 months ago. The water dispenser worked well until yesterday, when it stopped dispensing water. Not a drop would come out. We first increased the temperature in the refrigerator, in case the water line had frozen. No luck.
The light indicating it was time to change the filter had not come on, but since the manual says to change the filter at least once every 12 months, we decided this might be the problem. Followin

Around a week and a half ago i started to notice my refrigerator was no longer keeping things cold so I first tried adjusting the control panel temperature. I adjusted the settings from 6 up to 8 and then 9 without a noticable change. I also noticed the refrigerator is always running now and never seems to reach the proper temperature. The freezer seems to be keeping food frozen. So a week later I decided to vacuum behind the lower
Refrigerator Smell I have had a very strong "chemical-like" smell in my refrigerator/freezer for over a month now. The refrigerator is about 14 years old and still runs nice and cold. The smell seemed to come on suddenly. I have cleaned it, used baking soda, and had a repairman come. (He changed a minor part which he said was "burnt"). Nothing has worked. The smell gets in all my food and ice. Help!
Is the problem more in the freezer than the fridge section. If it is it is possible that on a defrost cycle the heaters which warm the coil may have warped and ar heating something they shouldnt. Another possibility is if there is something in the co ...
Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Fisher/Paykel Refrigerators My refrigerator is 2 yrs old. About a week ago we started noticing a bad smell coming from the back. It smells like sulfur. We have torn the kitchen apart, moving every appliance and even going under the house. We finally figured out that it's coming from the back of the refrigerator. We can't get a repair person out for 2 weeks. Has anyone ever heard of this?
The problem of a sulfur smell is not likely to be coming from the refrigeration system itself. Near the bottom front is a removable kick plate. when this plate is removed you can access the drain pan for collection and evaporation of the water from ...

A couple of weeks ago we noticed that the refrigerator side of our Kenmore Model #596.51673100 was not very cold, we turned up the temp and no increase, still kind of warm. Then today we noticed our freezer side is not very cold (enough for a freezer). We've cleaned behind and under the fridge, cleaned out the inside to see if anything was blocking the cold air, changed the temp settings, etc. Nothing changes it. It sounds like it's working but it never gets as cold as it should. What's goi

Our Kitchenaid side by side KSCS25INSS01 fridge has a peculiar odor and taste to the water from the dispenser and the ice cubes. It almost has a refrigerant smell/taste. I have changed the filter on a very regular basis, even before the indicator suggests. The smell was so bad for awhile it permeated the entire fridge. We have cleaned the fridge thoroughly and removed anything that could be suspect. I changed the filter again just lately and it helped somewhat but the water still has the smell a

Smelly refrigerator I recently had maintenance come to fix a problem with my fuse box in which he had to turn off the power to the house. After that, I noticed a horrible smell, almost like a mix of bad body odor and spoiled milk. After cleaning my kitchen several times, I noticed that the smell was located at the frigde. After pulling it out, it seems to be coming from the back of the unit.

His is a side by side Refrigerator/Freezer. Recently we've noticed the door seals are very hot, and it's coming from the metal surface they close against on the Refrigerator.

Samsung RM255LASH Side by Side Refrigerator
Recently noticed diminished cooling effect in the refrigerator section (side by side model). We also noticed a "snow" build-up in the freezer section. Investigating the problem I noticed a burned out light bulb. It was replaced with a good one.It did not come up. I also noticed an odd pop sound during my investigation. I do not have any documentation and the Google is not helping to locate one.
Thanks fo help
I read through what you have done so far. By defrosting you have put the problem off. With no knowledge of your brand I can't say for sure but in side by side units you will find a heater in between the halves of the fridge ...

Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water
Maytag Refrigerator MSD2737GR - the icemaker quit working and the thermostat for the entire refrigerator quit working properly. Now, with the thermostats turned all the way up for both the freezer and refrigerator, there are still cold areas. The top of both sides is warmer and the temperature gets colder as you go down to lower levels. Does the icemaker situation have any thing to do with the change of temperature? (Water can still be dispensed).
