Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
My side-by-side developed a CHEMICAL SMELL a few days ago. My refrigerator and freezer are very clean. There is absolutely NO spills, open containers, or old food. I clean it regularly and do NOT use harsh chemically cleansers. The chemical smell began very subtle, and was coming from INSIDE the refrigerator and freezer, whenever we opened the door. But now I'm noticing it anytime I go into the kitchen and intensely everytime it's opened. Everything is running fine and is about 5 years old, NO water leaks, or noises, JUST THIS SMELL. We are NOT using the ice because it TASTE and SMELLS like chemical. Please help, I do NOT want to MASK or ABSORB the odor, but fix it. Afraid it's contaminating or food on the VERGE OF TOSSING IT.
You have a freon leak. With this only being 5 years old, iot's probably worth repairing, unless you are just able to buy a new one. I would have a local tech come out and check it before tossing it. I hope this answers your question and gives you some resolution. I hope to work with you again, so please record our name, email and phone number for future needs. Have a great evening!
