The frigidaire has a strange smell from it


Hi Sue, this is JK. I understand that you are experiencing a strange odor coming from your refrigerator. There are two things that I would like to suggest. Check your model to see if it has an air filter; it could be time to replace this filter. I would also recommend doing a deep clean on the interior of the appliance. If these suggestions pan out and the problem still persists, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any error codes or other strange functions prior to this issue? If you are still having these issues and can think of anything in particular, please feel free to reconnect. Hope this helps!

Supurba refrigerator dirty coils strange sickly sweet rotting small. How do I clean the coils..used a vacuum on front coils but am unable to get to the rest. What is the smell? It is coming from the...


Try baking soda. Inside and out. Remember to change. You could try emptying the unit and leaving it open with a fan circulating the air for a few days (don't forget to keep the baking soda in the unit). The smell has most likely absorbed into the insulation of the unit and when it's running and closed up it's keeping whatever's in there fresh (alive). It could be the unit sat for a long time with no power and the doors closed and some sort of bacteria started to grow (usually in the insulation, lots of holes to call home and reproduce). I have had to set units outside remove the covers inside (exposing the insulation) , soak with a mild bleach mixture using a sprayer and let soak for an hour or so, rinse and then let dry with a fan blowing on it for a couple of days and then restart the unit once it's dry. Do not do this while the unit is plugged in. Unplug it and take it outside.

Hello - did you ever figure out the metal/chemical smell problem? I seem to be having the same problem in my refrigerator/freezer. It is a side-by-side unit. We were gone over the Labor Day weekend for a few days and when we came back the unit has a metal/iron smell coming from it. Not sure what it could be.
Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Weird smell from refrigerator


Is the smell from inside the refrigerator or on the outside? If outside, it is possible a humid smell from the condensate drainpan water evaporating. You could put a very small amount (a couple of granules) of pool chlorine in the drainpan.

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell


Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.

Refrigerator smells strange


I may have found the problem. I pulled out the Fridge again. The odor was in the water pan.

What I found was that the cooling grills in the front was caked with dust. I vacumed this area but it was not until I got down with a flash light and saw this issue. I took a small duster that uses static to pull the dust out. There was a lot. I will see if the smell starts up again.
