I turned off my frig and washed it out with soapy water, then I went over it and cleaned it out with lemon and vinegar. I let it sit open for one day. It did not work. As soon as I plugged in the frig it was smelling like shrimp again. Then I put two round cake pans FILLED with ground coffee and crumbled up news paper lightly sprayed with water and let it sit for two whole days. It WORKED. My frig does not smell like shrimp or fish any more. It smelled like coffee but it will go away in a couple of days and your frig will smell good.

Samsung RF267 water tastes terrible. Filters changed twice and not helping


If new plumbing, system is flushing and may cause a bad taste or odd color.Has a food item spoiled?
Make sure that strong smelling food (for example, fish) is wrapped so that it
is airtight.
Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or suspect food. Place foods in airtight containers to prevent the transfer of odors.And also Flush out water hose from tap end to freezer with warm water And also clean fridge with wet cloth (with soap solution). And then clean with dry cloth. .Keep fridge door open after cleaning all compartments for 4hrs minimum, as fresh air could wipe out any bad odor in fridge. And then start using fridge. Hope, it's helpful.

Have had a bad odor in refrigerator for approx. a month. have cleaned out everything, but odor will not go away. Help!!


Same problem as sfpoe - since before Thanksgiving! Smells like either spoiled produce or stagnant water, but cannot find anything as the source. Our ice maker isn't hooked up, so not water should be in those tubes.

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 .

Fish odor in freezer and fridge


Unplug first. You will need to clean the inside of the refrigerator and the freezer with a good cleaner and warm water. After this you need to remove the rear panel in the back of the freezer and spray water with Clorox on the evaporator coil and pour some of the solution down the defrost condensate drain to disinfect and remove the odors that drain down that hole to be evaporated and returned to the air in your home. That should take care of the fish smell, Please rate my solution, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Smell fish odor when fan comes on.


Tim, Clean the refrigerator completely with clorox and water. Unplug and remove the rear panel in the back of refrigerator and wash the evaporator coil with this solution. Check the amount of flow to the condensate pan below. The drain line has the gel and this contaminated smell from top to bottom and you will need to insure that all the smell remaining in the drain is draining freely and decontaminated with the clorox. Do these things and wash the remaining pan below the best you can and you will be set to go.
