MAYTAG FRIG SMELLS LIKE A DEAD ANIMAL!!

Our copmpressor broke down on our refrigerator and we had to wait about 10 days for the replacement part. We removed the food and items inside and have cleaned thoroughly inside and out, front and back. This rotten animal type smell keeps coming back everyday!! It is really bad and I keep cleaning but it comes back to haunt us. Please help, it is terrible and comes from outside more than inside it seems.

My Maytag refrigerator has a horrible smell when we open the door where it is now smelling even when we do not open door.nothing in frig that is spoiled or spilt.very clean inside .this has happened t


Sure the temperature is in low enough? Sure there is not a dead mouse under or behind the fridge? Or even between food or what looks a closed bag or box? Keep looking what can be causing the smell, We can't help. because we don't have eyes on site

We have a Kenmore Elite refrigerator that smells like dead fish when the motor runs (we have never put fish in the refrigerator)- what is the problem and is it something that we can fix?


Sounds like water has gotten into the foam insulation or the unit was left closed for a period of time with no power (not running). You may want to try putting a box of baking soda inside the frig and freezer. Place the boxes to the back on one of the shelves as close to the fans as possible. If that doesn't work you may have to shut it down and leave the doors open for a week with baking soda still inside or 2 to 3 days with a fan forcing air into it constantly still with baking soda inside, of course the food inside would have to be removed.

My Maytag side by side refrigerator [mod. #MSD2656KES, Serial #50518503JL] is freezing everything on the frig side on the two top shelves. Coils have been cleaned. Temp set:Freez=3, Frig=2. One week ago...


I have this same refrigerator, also purchased in 2006. Same exact problem. Fridge freezes, starting actually in the water line, you will notice water on door does not work, then top two shelves start to freeze. Lasts for a few days, then prob does not happen again for 6 months almost to the day. I've had this problem for almost 3 years!!! My service tech said to buy another, glitch in this system he can't figure out. Replaced damper x2, control board, and thermostat x2. Not sure what else to do. I hate the thought of more food lost to spoilage!

Foul dead animal smell from kenmoore side by side refrigerator/ice maker


I'm sorry that I don't have a solution, but we have the exact same problem with an older model KitchenAid side-by-side. Did you get this problem solved? If so, can you share what you did?

I need to get the wheels down to access the tray under the fridge


theres two bolts that are behind ythe kickplate on the bottom that you have to run in to lift the front of the frig at the same time lowering the wheels. I think they are 5/8 or 9/16 or a big flat screw driver.

MAYTAG MZD2766GE SIDE BY SIDE


Mine kept doing the same thing- the flap between the freezer & the frig is getting stuck. I finally just broke mine off & left it that way. Now the frig is really cold, sometimes things partially freeze- but that is better than going rotten. I now have a section under the water/ice dispense tray bubbling/peeling the white paint off. Mine is 6.5 years old & out of warranty, so I'm searching for a way to repair this problem. Any suggestions?
