I would suspect a leaky condensor,or leak in the refrigeration system,its gas oils are leaking out giving off an odor.get a professional refrigeration techncian to repair it ONLY!!!!.Warning do not try it your self.Harmful gases.
it does have a drain but it's not for this / to clean it use hot water and a tukey baster . the hot water will clear the tube and algi ect . mm the odor is best removed with baking soda. / wash it with soda and leave a box in the frig . mm
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.
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
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!
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.
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?
