Yes ,there is a condensate drain pan in the compressor compartment under your unit.
You should be able to get to it from the rear of the unit, by remove several screws.

Use caution and unplug unit before attempting any repair.
The pan can be cleaned out with warm soapy water.

My Westinghouse fridge freezer, model WSE6100SF, was affected by a power cut lasting 3 days. It now smells, but not inside. Is there a drip tray under the fridge that collects the water?


yes there is but most are not removeable.... remove the cover in the rear of the fridge, the pan is located around the fan motor that's underneath the fridge... I would try pinesol, bleach or odoban to kill the smell..... good luck

Awful smell coming from refrg. ge told me there is no drip pan that i can access. any other solutions? model MBF1956KEG


I live in a trailer park and i didn't have a fridge. A neighbour went to a nursing home and left everything behind so i salvaged his fridge. He was taken by ambulance in january and by march or april i got the fridge. Everything in it had spoiled. The stench of rotted meat was very bad. The smell was similar to a slaughterhouse. Meat juices had gotten in-between the plastic panels. I washed what i could outside using quadrated ammonia, even TSP and hot water... nothing solved the problem. I reasoned that i needed ozone to destroy the smell. They rent ozone machines but a product like fabreeze is made of ozone so i tried that. I had to spray it a couple times over a few days using the one for surfaces. The smell completely disappeared.

The drip pan is outside the fridge I believe, sitting in the back panel.

How to get a smell out of a hotpoint fridge.we try bread soda.what else can we use


You may have had something drip and somehow get under the fridge. I know blood dripping from meat will smell. It could have dripped down through the defrost drain tube to the pan underneath. You can access the pan from the rear by removing the cardboard cover. If the smell seems to be coming from the pan, it's difficult to remove so I would just pour some bleach in it to kill any smell and you may can wipe it out from there. The drain tube may also have the smell in it so you can pour some bleach into it from the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear panel. You can move the fridge to see if anything is pooled on the floor that might smell.

A horrible smell from underneath 60721. The drain doesn't seem to be clogged. We think turkey drippings spilled and attempting to cleaning the drain and drain pan, but it's difficult. Is there a secret...


The drain pan may be accessible from the back. An equal portion of bleach and water should kill the smell. Make you wear gloves and use a fan to ventilate the area before and after using the bleach solution.

Milk which was spilled in the fridge has dripped into the drip tray behind the fridge and has created the most awful smell. Can the tray be removed for cleaning and if so how?


Yes, usually the tray can be removed for cleaning. You will have to pull the fridge out, unplug power, remove the rear access cover. Then you should see the evaporator / condensate tray and how to remove it.

Odor in my home


There may be mildew on the condensor (the big radiator inside the attic) and/or the water drip tray underneath it may not be fully draining causing the odor.
Your senses get "used" to the odor. Your brain will mask it so that you will be able to sense other odors.

Replace the return air filter more often. clean the airway taht the filter covers. Spray Lysol will help temporarily.
You must check the condensor & water drip pan.

Odor


Could you possibly have a dead rat under there? I know this sounds gross, but they love to hide in the electronics. (Sorry). Anyway, your drip pan may sit on a small bracket type piece that isn't heavy at all. It can sometimes get misplaced, causing the fridge to leak because it's out of place. If you can get a flash light, you should be able to see where it's placed and you should be able to remove and clean it out. I put Mr. Clean in mine when it gets an odor and when water hits it, the solution cleans the odor, but you can clean it and replace it. I hope this helps!

Foul odor from back area of fridge/Kenmore bottom freezer


I had the same problem, but just fixed it. I have a maytag bottom freezer and when the fan blower comes on, there was a foul/stale smell that permeated the kitchen. There is no drip pan that I could remove to clean.

I just removed four screws from the back cover of the fan blower area, reached in with a small cup of organic odor remover and poured it into the drip pan just under the fan blower.

Any odor remover would work. probably vinegar or enzyme odor remover would work, too.

I now have fresh smell when the fan blower comes on.
