Hello refbdf - Usually this is caused by a blocks of foam located on the sides of the evaporator coil being deformed by heat from the defrost heater. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly repair the unit.

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.

Baking soda


Rubbing compound will buff off the oxidation that effects (clouds) the outside surface of plastics. Some waxes have a little abrasive that will help do this. Toothpaste will also work mixed with wax. Use some muscle and buff til it is dry to restore the plastic gloss.

Remove the power plug and move your fridge forward. Now look at the rear bottom side of the fridge to see if there are any parts that heats up. You can trace this to the smell emitting from the heated part and confirm. It can be the motor, contactor or the defrost timer.

Replaced our old toilet with this one and now smell coming up from septic will not go away. Did not have this problem before. What can be done to get rid of the smell?


I would suggest that you shut water supply off to your toilet ,disconnect supply line from tank and pull toilet back up. Get a new wax base seal prefreablly a double thick wax type and after cleaning outlet on your toilet reset it on new ring.. Make sure when you tighten retaining nuts that you do so evenly. What I do is carefully center toilet on ring with ring already set in drain flange with bolts in place. Set toilet down on base and push gently from side to side to get bolts thru far enough to get plastic washer and retaing washer and nut on bolts. Carefully tighten bolts going from one side to the other say three turns on each side. Tighten securely,then set on toliet faceing wall and gently rock back and forth,front to back and side to side to help set toilet base in seal. Recheck tightness of nuts and snug up a little if needed. Be careful as the base will break if you overtighten the nuts. Reattach supply ,turn on water and check out. You should be able to get a double thick wax seal at most hardware stores. Good luck. Thanks

Phillips whirlpool built in fridge /freezer smell coming from the fridge section,we have tried various things but the smell still persists


Could it be that there is degradation of the plastics due to heating of the defrosting coils or is it the smell off leaked gas.
Remove all the food stuff from the fridge and clean, wash the inside throughly. Now restart the fridge and after aboutone hour check for smell, continue this till you notice, if the smell comes in after about 10 hours then you must look into the defrosting heater for any traces of material on it causing the smell on heat.

There is drip tray underneath the unit. Depending on model, there are multiple ways to access. This tray needs cleaning regularly. Once clean, sprinkle in Baking Soda to keep odors down. Cleeaning this on a regular basis is the only way to beat this smell.

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell


Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.
