Too late, you'll have to get rid of it because the smell has been absorbed into the insulations....and when you bleackh the inside cabinet, the warm food will absorbe the smell again.

Whirlpool refrigerator has an awful smell coming from the bottom. We cleaned the drip pan the smell went away, the next day the motor turned on and the smell came back. Can it be the motor?


If the fridge is failing to keep the freezer as cold as it was, it is only a matter of time (hours or maybe a day) before it stops cooling completely.

If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs, and cooling inside is diminished, it is very likely that the refrigerant has escaped due to line chafing, rupture or compressor failure. This is not the type of failure your want. Many times, this repair costs many hundreds of dollars to repair and isn't worth the expense. Other times, a line can be repaired after cleaning & evacuation. A service port is installed to allow a new refrigerant charge to be introduced to the fridge.

The only way to know for sure is to have it checked by a licensed refrigeration mechanic or fridge repair technician.

Good luck!

check O2 Sensors, add a product called Ametech restore at next oil change, this does wonders for your vehicle, improved my BHP & MPG threefold , also as you say it smells bad (Like rotten eggs?) this will be the catalytic converter, either replace or add a product called cataclean to the fuel & take it for a run, It literally cleans all the **** fro the catalytic converter removing that rotten egg smell

How to remove the odour of rotten meat from freezer


Clean the inside of the freezer properly with a strong detergent and then, using a very old trick, place an open packet of baking powder or a piece of coal in the freezer to remove any remaining smell.

GE side by side refrigerator smells on the outside!


Mix 1/3 cup of bleach and 2/3 cup of water , and pour down drain tube (rear bottom in freezer section . Too much bleach and the smell of bleach would be circulated by the fan to the room , so be sure to add water .

Smell


Your whole freezer bottom is probably removeable. you mat have to remove the doors and the separator bar in front to get this out. Then you will be able to access the spill.

Hi - we had this problem, and it was in fact where some blood from a defrosting pice of meat drained into the compressor condensation tank and began to decay!

I agree the smell is terrible, so a good clean up is needed but this solves the problem immediately!

Kind regards,

Mike
