Use baking soda carpet powder and leave overnight. Also Febreeze for autos will work wonders.

Bad odor in refrigerators...


Many face the problem of bad odor in refrigerators. Here are few simple tricks to get the problem of bad odor solved:

  1. Keep an open box of baking soda inside the fridge it will absorb the foul smell.
  2. Place newspaper made into balls all over your fridge and freezer so that it is completely covered.Spray the newspaper with water until it is completely wet.
  3. Allow the fridge to run as normal for five days. During this time, the combination of evaporating water and paper will soak up the nasty smell. It should be noted that you will have to turn your freezer to the lowest setting to avoid getting frozen.
  4. Buy some freshly ground coffee.Dump 1 to 2 cups of the coffee grounds on a large plate and spread them around. Use multiple plates if the smells are extreme.Place the plate on the center shelf.Close the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours.Dispose of the coffee grounds.
  5. Cut a lemon in half and put it in there - it will absorb the smells and make it clean smelling.
  6. Last but not least ....Empty contents of fridge wipe out with warm water and a little lemon juice then cover a tray or plate with kitchen foil and fill with charcoal put in fridge over night and the charcoal absorb es all nasty ouders then in morning remove plate or tray.It should have no smells at all.
Thank you for this opportunity t post few tips which i know. I think all the above are home made tips and anyone can try it out who are facing the problem of bad odor in their refrigerator..

Frig not cooling-water line frozen


Check to see if the fan in the freezer is working. It moves cold air from the freezer side to the refrigerator side. If it is not working or if there is an obstruction in the duct work the issue could be there. Fans and motors are cheap and easy to replace.

Red element in freezer making noise


Most times that is normal when defrost takes place. The sound of frozen surfaces changing temperature quickly and you may also hear the sound of water sizzling when the moisture drops on the element. The only thing that would concern me is if the defrost remained on too long and to the point of causing a burned plastic smell. Is the refrigerator new to you or the sounds just suddenly change? There have been cases where the defrost remained on too long when the defrost thermostat becomes defective. Let me know if you have something more sever than that. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker in refridgerator freezer won't make ice. It seems as if the water is going up into the freezer but no Ice is being produced. The ice tray has frozen ice in it, but it will not dump it in the ice...


Sometimes icemakers get all frozen up, such that the motor cannot turn to eject the ice. Also, in some cases the water supply line freezes up, although that does not sound like your problem.

Try leaving the freezer open to defrost it manually and see if it starts working by itself. Also, the icemaker motors can and do fail. In some cases you smell an acrid burning smell when the motor fails.

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 .

My Avanti portable refrigerator will not get cold. I can hear it running and there is a burning smell when I open the door. I close the door and the smell goes away but the unit will not get cold


If you planned on doing this yourself you may want to check the back of the freezer the coils if there is ice buildup that may have frozen the thermistor, fooling the system that the fridge is cold. for the smell. If you are sure that it is inside the fridge, it could be the wires to the thermistor or the fan may have corroded or opened up.
