SOURCE: Bad smell coming from fridge

Is there any chance that small food particles have simply fallen into the fan and now trapped near or behind the fan ?

If this is the case, the food may be lodged in such a way that either heat given off from the fan or the fact the food may not be getting cool/frozen any longer, may have sent the food bad and is now generating the smell you describe.

I don't know of any fridge gas that smells like fish or funk as you put it, most are fairly neutral smelling or odorless to a point and certainly would not smell the way you have described.

  • Make sure the area is well ventilated ( run a pedestal fan nearby or open a window ), fridge gas can be harmful, even in small amounts ( especially if you don't know you're breathing it ), and if the smell is as bad as you say, you may very well be gasping for air.
  • Always have someone nearby when you attempt to do your own repair work of this nature, you just never know when you might need their assistance.
  • If you plan on looking into the problem yourself, firstly ensure the fridge is off, and unplugged before sticking fingers anywhere near a fan - plastic or not, i have seen 4 inch biscuit fan take the tip off an index finger of in a fraction of a second, so don't think for a minute because it's plastic, it won't bite.
  • Do not use any sharp pointed or metal objects to remove the fan or it's plastic cover, use fingers or flat blunt objects that can not puncture the lining of the fridge itself.
  • ( trust me when i say i speak from experience on this )
  • Be extra careful when removing the shroud around the fan, it should simply either click in or there maybe small coverings, covering 3-4 screws around the unit.
  • Remove the fan cover, being again extra careful of the unit itself and check around with a flashlight and perhaps even a magnifying glass.
  • If you can not find any offending objects, it is probably best to replace the fan and shroud and call the repair guy.

SOURCE: 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.

How do I remove the plastic drip tray from behind my Wesitnghouse Aurora Fridge Freezer.


we had a really bad smell coming from the back of our westinghouse aurora. and yes found it to be emanating from drip tray at the back. To remove this we had to undo 4 clips at the base of black motor thingy, that the plastic drip box sits on. Then we were able to lift whole thing a bit ,(10mm up and 50mm out, approx) so we could tilt everything forward and sweeze and wiggle tray out. then cleaned with bleach. also we unblocked hole inside fridge that allows water to drip into drip tray at back.

Hi, pull out the fridge and remove the back panel, and clean that area. Make sure no food is stuck under the fridge also. A rotten piece of fruit or other food, once under there, will smell until it totally decomposes. You can also 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. Finally, another popular methods of removing fridge odor include washing the entire fridge out with a vinegar and water solution, placing fresh coffee grinds or boxes of baking soda on each shelf and even using trays of cat litter.

The fridge and freezer smell like a dead animal. cleaned the inside with bleach but still smells for weeks. model w10212088


There are two reasons for bad smells. 1. Long time not being used. 2. Lack of cleaning inside compartment.

Solution: Unplug fridge. Keep open fridge door. Dip a dry cloth in soap water and start cleaning each and every compartment. Keep freezer door also open. And then clean with another dry cloth. Keep both doors open for nearly 5 hrs. It will be enable fresh air to **** the smell inside fridge.
After 5 hrs close the fridge and run on empty for one hour. Keep food items after one hour. Please keep all food items closed vessel. Not only it's avoid odor but also be hygienic.
If you use to keep fish items in freezer, clean fridge once in a week.(Spray roo spray in the room when you keep fridge door opened. Don't spray into fridge.)Helpful.

My fridge and freezer smell and I do not know where it is coming from. Have cleaned numerous times with different things including bleach and vinegar. What could be the cause?


  • This is a different smell than I am used to hearing about....You say you have cleaned the fridge and freezer several times. I do not know what was used to clean it with but I would do this.....use bleach on the plastic in the fridge. Try to be sure to get the crisper drawers as well with bleach. It may be strong to start with but the smell of bleach dissipates very quickly. When you get done there is a tray under the fridge that collects water when it goes on defrost cycle(assuming its a self defrosting unit?) I would clean out the tray underneath and if you can get under the fridge by moving it try moping the floor under it with bleach.Ammonia can be used instead of bleach but do not mix them together.
  • When you are all done be sure to have a fresh box of baking soda for the fridge.Open the box and set it in the back on the top shelf, wait 24 to 36 hours and write ma back and lat me know where we stand.
  • I hope this is helpful and please rate me for my answer if you can....thank you and speak with you soon!
