Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator

Disassembled inside-Kenmore 53602

We had a fire in our home in August and our refrigerator had some smoke damage. I cleaned this thing for 4 days. But the inside had food left in it. So silly me wanted to make sure that all places of this thing was clean, so I took apart all the pieces inside of it. Now 1 month later I still can't remeber how to put it all back together. I know silly, huh? Well now my honey, is upset and I was hoping someone could e-mail me the assembly of the inside of this thing, so I can get it put back together. We don't have the owners manual cause we bought it used from a yard sale. Please, please help me. I'm pretty sure this is the model #, if not it is pretty close, they look to be the same from the pictures I have seen on the site. Thank you so very much, I'm very gratful to whom ever helps me out.

You have the capability to assemble the entire refrig by roving the internet, there was one refrigerator parts site that had pictures of most of the parts of the liste model. Others will have a parts breakdown diagram indicating the general location of most parts. Also one, can order lthe service manual which has the parts listed and lists a diagramatic layout. This will make so you can reassemble unit, based on your ability to interpret the schematic layouts. Another method is to lay it out in the garage, and take a picture of it all, and including close-ups. With these photos one could instruct you to assemble unit. Regards ,,,fmauka

You should be able to get a cleaner spray suitable for use in microwaves. Give the insides a good spray and a good clean, it should take it away. Make certain there is no burnt deposits anywhere.

Freezer works great but the refrigerator don't work. any ideal

Remove any things that will hindrance or block to the flow of cold air inside the refrigerator. Often the fan is block with food stuff or bottles, cans of drinks. Rearrange it correctly and also clean the fins of fans. Pullout unnecessary things and clean the inside. Put some allowances to the things inside. Overloading of food stuff really make it hard for the refrigerator to cold it. It takes longer for a overload food stuff to eliminate heat outside and cool then cold it.
It's a pleasure to help you.

Can food spilled between glass in the oven cause a fire?

No....the food will make things a mess and you will want to eventually take things apart and clean between there, but it will not cause a fire... smoke maybe...for a bit, but no fire...

Front end of divider between refrigerator and freezer is getting very hot to the touch. both sides still working okay... just concerned that the frig may burn out or cause an electrical fire.

The area you are describing is the breaker panel, inside is a heater called a mullion. The purpose of this heater is to control any moisture that may form due to the temp difference (Dew Point) inside and out. This excessive heat you are noticing is a for-warning of bad things to come (compressor damage, spoiled food). The most common reason is not keeping the condenser (different types, designs and locations depending on make and model) clean. Recommend inspect and service every 4 - 6 months. A condenser brush (looks like a over sized bottle brush) and a vacuum with a wand is used. If never done before, service front and back, mybe power clean with reverse blowing vacuum after getting the heavy stuff out. After cleaning, give 24 hours, if no major damage to compressor or condenser fan motor, the system should return to normal, breaker panel will cool to average 10 - 15 dgs above ambiant. Other issues that it could be; weak compressor, bad - intermittantly operating condenser fan, doors intermittantly left ajar, bad - low RPM evap fan motor, cavity lights on when doors closed.

Foul odor coming from freezer. Kenmore model w/ freezer on top.

Clean the refrigerator thoroughly fresh food and freezer under all drawers. Then place charcoal briquettes in each 8 or 10 total. 4 or 5 in the bottom of the fresh food section. leave the for several days. If that doesnt take away the smell consider if a mouse may have gotten into a fan blade and well that can create a really bad smell.
