Why does refrigerator have odor underneath


Odor from under frig can come from the fresh food drain into the evaporator drip pan or from spillage of food under the refrigerator. If it is a high temperature smell, it can be due to accumulation of lint and dirt on the coils and fan under neath the refrigerator. All refrigerator need a yearly cleaing done underneath the refrigerator, both the floor and the components.
Hope this helps

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

Smelly Jenn-Air Refrigerator


some of the most elusive odors can be developed by a rotted piece of fruit,hidden behind drawers,or stowed away inside door shelving somewhere...to remove odors/take about 5-6 charcoal briquettes and wrap them in newspaper this will absorb odor,and yeah-it actually works leave them in for about 2 days

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.

Foul odor from beneath the frige!


You have a couple possibilities. Either something spilled in the frig and ran down into the drip pan or you have a dead critter under there. The pan is not removable and cleaning it is a pain. take a good look under there from the back and the front.

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.

Bad Smell


you might ry removeing hte rear panel of freezer. gain access to the evapotator area, thats where the fan thatcirculates air is as well, if the smells stillback there washing the inside wont do anything. once fully exposed i would saturate area with an odor nuetralizer . I use odo-ban. and be sure to pour asolution of baking soda and water downt the drain assy (under the evaperator) that will allow the baking soda to reamin in the lower drip tray long after teh eater evaporates. once refrig gets vcold again the smells generrally disapate anyway
