This is a trick my wife uses when she stores fish in the refrigerator. Put about 2 cups of vinegar in the refrigerator and leave it there for 4-6 hours.

Let me know that works for you and please rate this!

Fishy odor


Make sure you wash the refrigerator and freezer with a baking soda and water solution.
Then, place a few charcoal briquets in the fridge and freezer areas.
The charcoal will absorb odors. It works wonders.
In one month, you can remove the briquets and scrape the outer layer off to renew the usefulness of the charcoal.

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

check every nook and cranny for food that could have been spilled out, if you cant see any thing crimple up 10 to 15 pages of newspaper, this will absorb any odors, repeat if needed

Odor from outside of Refrigerator


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. We have seen this before. Hope this helps!

Odor in GE side by side Fridge


Sounds like mold.  I'd try Lysol or one of the other products that claims to treat the odor cause in the air.  Spray a quantity into the empty fridge and freezer and turn it on.  Let the fans spread the stuff around. Try to find the internal vents which seem to pull air into the coils to spray into.

Fan blows out a smell from underneath fridge could it be leaking gas.


Hi,
I have the same problem with the odor. I took the back off and discovered the drip pan was full of stagnant dirty water. This place is bacteria heaven. The problem I have now is that i cant seem to find a way to remove the pan without taking the motor out and everything. Any suggestions?
