SOURCE: Not keeping cold temperature and can smell plastic from heat

Sounds like the condenser fan motor is either jammed or has failed. if you wil pull the refrig from the wall and remove the lower compartment cover you will see the fan I'm reffering to as well as the condenser coil and compressor. if the fan has failed you can put a house fan blowing into this compartment to keep the unit operational until you can get it repaired. thanks for using FixYa Peyton

SOURCE: whirlpool fridge leaks water in the back inside

your freezer cabinet need to get all out and open the back wall
there is a drain hole in the bottom middle of it make sure it is
clean and if you pure water they go all the way
through the pip to the drain pan next to the compressor.

SOURCE: freon leak in refrigerator?

no refrigerant leaks have little to no odor and if it was leaking bad enough to smell it the unit would be out of refrigerant and not cooling...the problem sounds like gases coming off of a veggie of something un-covered inside the fridge--have you put any veggies in the fridge or freezer un-covered check real good if one or a piece of something has fallen behind something else where you cannot see...all else fails remove all your products from the unit and clean and get a box of odor control arm&hammer to rid the smell..as for a leak in the sealed system i think your just fine.

What does a freon leak smell like in a refrigerator. Mine smells like very rotten oranges and its clean


Thats Not Freon! roll fridge out, take back lower cover (condenser compartment), and see what is going on there. Maybe some mice lives there.

My refridgerator smells like fermented oranges. the smell is now in the water from the fridge and tastes like the bad smell. fridge is a side by side maybe 5 years old, don't know the brand right now....


This may be from the dirt that has accumulated on its drain or inner panels. Clean out the unit. In that way you can inspect the insides. Clean out every corner and drains. Make sure you check the coils at the back of the fridge. You will have to unscrew the panels inside to get to it. Check if there are balls of ice forming on the coils. There may be a leak, and the smell may also be from the freon.

Odor can it be freon leak?


Two possible causes of odor on fridges:

* Freon Leak
* Defrost Drain Pan dirty.

If the fridge was unplugged for a while or there was a liquid dropped in the refrigerator, it's more likely to be the drain pan. It is located at the back of the appliance, above the compressor.

If it is clean and the smell is not coming from there, then you may suspect about the freon leak.

Chemical odor


Hi serena38,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You have a sweet chemical odor in our boat cabin, it leaves a sweet taste in your mouth. You cannot find the source. The fridge does not work. You can smell the odor stronger when the A/C is turned on or when the boat is closed up with the A/C off. Help????

Great, I live on a boat! I can think of two reasons for this. The first and most likly is electrical. Look carefully at the components especially the capaciter, it's on or near the motor. If it is leaking or out gassing, replace it. Wire corrosion can cause a wire to slowly give off fumes. These kinds of problems are common on a boat so look very carefully i.e. testing meter is helpfull here. I've already expirienced this and it sure was hard to find. Less likely is a freon leak. You won't smell the freon itself but if the oil is a little burnt, that can be smelly indeed. You will need a special leak detector for that. Anyway my money is on the electrical.

Feel free contact me again!

There is a smell coming from the back of the fridge freezer,its a funny smell,sometimes you can smell it inside the fridge too, it seems to get stronger when the fridge is cooling more(as its a frost free...


I presume you have a house hold fridge if so you could be smelling a freon leak. It is a repulsive smell and you would notice it more during the cooling cycle. Is there any oily film inside or on the back of the fridge if so that is another sign. If you have a Recreational Vehicle it will smell more like ammonia and have yellow residue
