    The fishy smell is overheating of the cable connection into the switch or appliance . Once this happens you need to cut back the wire to a nice clean unheated part of the cable , and then replace the switch or appliance connection terminal block or complete appliance as well .Once its overheated it will never have a good electrical continuity again .
    Probably wire connections never tightened properly in the initial install.
