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.

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.

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.

I have an odor cause my fridge has been closed with no power


yes drain pan is located in the back on top the compressor....10:1 solution of water and bleach is good enough to clean it with....kills mold and mildew....also remember that if the fridge lost power and found cause a stench inside, could be held by the plastic....ive been using dryer sheets in my units to help with odors. may take a few weeks...but a new dryer sheet a week helps.
