Thank you for your question. I understand your concern about the compressor. Normally, when this type of problem occurs, it indicates that the compressor is locked (stuck). Checking the compressor as you have done with the meter indicates the windings or ok but it does not mean the compressor is good. This compressor will probably need to be replaced. A technician will usually have a hard starting kit that will sometimes free a locked compressor but sometime it won't and sometimes the compressor will run for just a short time and lock up again. If you would like to have a technician check this, I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services. I hope this will help you.

Thanks Scott, you have confirmed most of what I've been hearing but somebody suggested to check the controll board, do you think this would be a possibility and if so where is it located on this unit, I can't seem to find it..

Dan, this model does not show to have a control board. However even if it did, the control board would not be causing this type of problem.

Hi,

Thank you for your question. It is concerning when the refrigerator is not functioning correctly. The door seal replacement is not hard but you will need to do some work before replacing the seals.
Store the food elsewhere, and unplug the refrigerator. Remove the door by removing the top hinge. Open the door carefully and remove off the bottom hinge and lay the door on a table or on the floor on a blanket or cover. Remove the screw holding the inner door panel to the outer panel. Place the new gasket in a tub of hot water and place it where it is on a flat surface where it can be smoothed out and al the wrinkles removed from it. When that is done install the new gasket onto the outer door panel and reinstall the inner door panel to the outer door panel.
Reinstall the door on the lower hinge and close the door, this will hold the door in position when reinstalling the upper door hinge.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply below this entry.

I have a Kenmore model 59678574802 and must also replace the door gaskets. Is there any way to accomplish this without disassembling the refrigerator?

A:

Without taking off the door It will be very hard on the hinge side. I would recommend that the new gasket be heated up and laid out flat so the wrinkles and indentations can be smothed out. I would still recommend the door be removed for ease of placement of the new gasket. Good Luck with it.

Bill, I understand your recommendations, but how do I physically change the gasket. Is it just to rip out the old one and somehow push the new one in, or is there some other method to accomplish this?

Ok start at one of the corners and lift up on the gasket until it is out of the channel and lift and slowly peel away, lifting and peeling. That is whay a warm gasket will go on more easily.

I surmise that I then have to align the gasket to one of the corners of the door and then push it into the channel. Is there some tool that will help me accomplish this without damaging the gasket?

A:

That is correct. Start from one of the corners and there is only a warm streachy gasket to install. I always soak the gasket in hot water and lay it out flat to get the wrinkles out before installing it.

Q:

What can I do about a very bad odor in my refrigerator? washed interior 3 times, vacumned underneath, blew out dust

A:

The most unusual thing about the problem you describe is that it happened suddenly and for no apparent reason.

Usually the problem occurs after the unit stops working and everything thaws out while your gone for a 3 day weekend.

Even then when the food is removed and the unit cleaned with soap and baking soda the smell goes away.

The worse thing is when meat thaws and blood gets into the insulation. For this problem you might have to remove the panels and replace the insulation. Sometimes the smell can never be completely removed.

But you say the problem happened suddenly and for no apparent reason so non of these usual suspect seem guilty.

Other sources of smells would be something crawled under the refrigerator and didn't make it out. You say you vacuumed under neath but I's also suggest you pull the refrigerator out and check under and behind.

There is a condenser pan where water collects. Normally the water evaporates but if not mildew could form and become smelly. You can add a 1/2 of cup of bleach to the condenser pan to help with this.

There should be a source of the odor.

There are products, one is show below, that will eliminate odors in refrigerators. If you do a search with key words "odors" "refrigerator" you will see several products the you could try.

If there is no chance the refrigerator thawed out with out you knowing it then this may prove a difficult problem to solve.

If the defrost heat went bad there might be an electrical smell but after a few days the frost would build up and the unit would stop freezing properly.

I hope the information is helpful but submit another question with any additional detail for further assistance.
