Question about Hotpoint 21.7 cu. ft. Side-by-Side No-Frost Refrigerator with Dispenser CSX22GRBWW
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.

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

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.
