Bad odor comin from rear of refrigerator

Bad odor coming from rear of refrigerator for about 21/2 -3 wks cleaned inside and under including front grill. We experienced a power outage for 4 days resulting in meat and food spoilage. Looked for leakage in the refrigerator, and therefore any that would have run onto motor etc., but did not see any. Any help you can give would be great.

What gives our refrigerator has a bad odor inside it


Hey friend, thank you for your post!

I understand your Frigidaire refrigerator has bad odor inside of it. Typically bad smells inside of your refrigerator come from food with strong odors, they can circulate throughout your appliance and attach to the evaporator or walls of your refrigerator. Here are some steps you can perform to help eliminate the odor.


· Washing the walls with warm soapy water.

· Washing the walls with warm water and baking soda. Do not mix other products with bleach.

· Place a pan of charcoal inside the appliance. Do not use self-starting charcoal.

· Place a pan of kitty litter inside the refrigerator.

I hope this information provides useful. -Matt

Why does my electrolux refrigerator have a bad smell coming from inside


Hi ralexander73 - Are you referring to a plastic odor that the unit is providing? If so, this is typically caused by blocks of foam located on the sides of the evaporator coil being deformed by heat from the defrost heater which only a professional can repair. If not, what type of odor do you smell? With this information, I will be better to address the issue at hand. Thank you.

Smell developed in refrigerator, it is thoroughly clean


The drain is at the bottom inside the freezer section. It is possible a piece of something got behind a panel, or otherwise in a "hidden" spot. Or something is in the defrost water tray underneath and every time it defrosts, it gets wet and releases the odor again. Look in the drain pan by removing the kick plate (bottom grate under the doors) and look to see if anything is there. Use a few open boxes of baking soda in the fridge (to absorb odors), and wipe the inside with some vanilla extract. that combination will help with the odor. But the source of the odor needs to be removed first. It sometimes can be hard to find.

There is a bad odor blowing out from under my Whirlpool side-by-side refigerator. How do I fix it?


Hi

Odors in the refrigerator can come from many different sources. Spoiling food, spilled milk, open food. Often a really good cleaning out with an ammonia cleaner can help or with a baking soda water mixture.
But, sometimes an odor can "permeate" into one of the plastic parts found inside the fridge, crisper pans, door liners, shelf supports. Even after you have found the spoiling food, removed it, cleaned the fridge up.....sometimes another plastic part will pick up this odor and continue to give the odor back off. A few things that can help with this type of an odor, place one these inside the fridge section:
- box of baking soda
- dish of coffee grounds
- open slices of bread
The bread trick can be used to effectively to remove odors. Just throw a slice or two onto one of the shelves in the fresh food compartment, leave the bread slice(s) in there for 12-24 hours -no longer- and then throw the bread out or I throw the bread outside for the birds to eat. When bread goes stall, it will **** in odors very well. Because the air inside the refrigerator is blown between both sections, this will help the fridge and freezer sections. Do this for about a week and you should notice a big change in the odor problem :-)
A really bad odor problem. Sometimes something like milk or juice is spilled inside the fridge. The liquid can run under the plastic edge breakers and get into the insulation. This can be very difficult to clean and may require a service call to have the old insulation removed and replaced with new insulation in that section.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Odor coming from back of fridge


This is very unusual, most of the time when I get complaints about odor it's form the inside of the cabinet. This should be easy enough to solve though. The odor is likely from dust accumulated underneath, or from something in the drain pan. If the unit has visible fiberglass insulation underneath you should replace it with new because, even if the source of the odor has been removed, the insulation can still contain it.
Unplug the refrigerator, take off the kick plate and rear cover. Clean and vacuum the entire under- carriage, condenser, fan, and condensation evaporator tray.
Be gentle with the components though, especially the capillary tube ( a pipe about the size of a 14 gauge copper wire )
