Chemical Odor in Freezer

q
Querencia Apr 29, 2007 07:42 PM

Last week the heater in the freezer (that regulates the automatic defrost cycle) of my side-by-side refrig/freezer went out and because it was late in the day to get a part the repairman jiggered some kind of Rube Goldberg repair. Now the freezer and fridge are holding a good temperature but there is a chemical odor coming from the freezer and flavoring the ice. I would like to hear from anyone with experience or expertise in this matter. Thanks.
