    For model number PLRU1778ES0
    Hi Barbara, Thank you for your question. Usually if there is water pooling at the bottom of the refrigerator, the issue is a clogged drain pipe. If the drain pipe is not clogged, check to see if anything has spilled recently inside the refrigerator. If there is a smell coming from the refrigerator, it may be coming from the drain pan under the refrigerator. You will need to inspect and clean the drain pan if it is dirty. You should also give the inside of the refrigerator a good cleaning and place a fresh box of baking soda inside. We hope this helps! If you have any questions, please let us know.

      Broke a blade off of the fan
      When cleaning the coils on your refrigerator always remember rule number 1, unplug it first. I was cleaning the coils and hit the fan blade while it was moving with a brush, thus breaking off one of the fan blades. I ordered a new fan and installed it in about 15 minutes. Very easy repair.

      The Crisper Drawer Glass Shelf slid out of the frame while being cleaned and shattered.
      The repair didn't require any tools at all. Just simply slide the new glass shelf carefully into the the frame and while holding it horizontally slide the frame back into the rails. This took less than a minute to accomplish. Very satisfied with the results.

      Temp alarm sounding and food on top shelves partially thawed
      After silencing the alarm, it seemed to be running as normal without any unusual noises, but food was starting to thaw from the top shelf on down and condensation was dripping from the roof. We were able to place most of the food in 2 large ice chests and then the rest in the freezer compartments of 2 fridges we have in the house. I then turned down the temp dial to the coldest setting and let it run for an hour or so; no change.

      After researching on the internet, it sounded like our symptoms could be pointing to a defrost timer issue. I pulled the freezer away from the wall, located the timer and used a large screwdriver to slowly advance it. While doing this, at one point I could hear the compressor kick in. I pushed the quick freeze button and let it run for a while. When I checked it in a few hours, the alarm light had gone out and water that I had placed inside was frozen. We took a chance and put the food we placed in the ice chests back in the freezer. Everything was fine several hours later.

      I ordered a new defrost timer, it arrived in a couple of days, and replaced the old one with it in a matter of minutes by disconnecting the wire harness from the old timer, removing the 2 screws holding it onto the bracket, screwing the new timer to the bracket, reconnecting the wires harness, and done. It's been a week or so and no problems.
