Have you cleaned out the Freezer recently. We had the same issue with a rotten smell that we thought was from the fridge section, but found that it was actually from the freezer. Turns out it was just really old food.

Chemical smell in freezer and refrigerator


Have you tried cleaning wil Bon Ami ? Sometimes , we have to clean our reconditioned appliances that we sull to environmentalists ( detergent smells , fafric softner smells , etc , ) . Refrigerants ( freon ) have no odor , so it has to be the inside plastic which has the odor . Try Bon Ami and if that doesn't work , stuff 1 freezer shelf with crumpled up newspaper . The ink in newspaper , absorbes odors . This is the only way to remove fish odor in freezers that have quit cooling .

Fish odor in freezer and fridge


Unplug first. You will need to clean the inside of the refrigerator and the freezer with a good cleaner and warm water. After this you need to remove the rear panel in the back of the freezer and spray water with Clorox on the evaporator coil and pour some of the solution down the defrost condensate drain to disinfect and remove the odors that drain down that hole to be evaporated and returned to the air in your home. That should take care of the fish smell, Please rate my solution, Thanks, Sea Breeze

There is a bad odor blowing out from under my Whirlpool side-by-side refigerator. How do I fix it?


Hi

Odors in the refrigerator can come from many different sources. Spoiling food, spilled milk, open food. Often a really good cleaning out with an ammonia cleaner can help or with a baking soda water mixture.
But, sometimes an odor can "permeate" into one of the plastic parts found inside the fridge, crisper pans, door liners, shelf supports. Even after you have found the spoiling food, removed it, cleaned the fridge up.....sometimes another plastic part will pick up this odor and continue to give the odor back off. A few things that can help with this type of an odor, place one these inside the fridge section:
- box of baking soda
- dish of coffee grounds
- open slices of bread
The bread trick can be used to effectively to remove odors. Just throw a slice or two onto one of the shelves in the fresh food compartment, leave the bread slice(s) in there for 12-24 hours -no longer- and then throw the bread out or I throw the bread outside for the birds to eat. When bread goes stall, it will **** in odors very well. Because the air inside the refrigerator is blown between both sections, this will help the fridge and freezer sections. Do this for about a week and you should notice a big change in the odor problem :-)
A really bad odor problem. Sometimes something like milk or juice is spilled inside the fridge. The liquid can run under the plastic edge breakers and get into the insulation. This can be very difficult to clean and may require a service call to have the old insulation removed and replaced with new insulation in that section.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
