Question about Electrolux Refrigerators
Zanussi Electrolux TT160CMX I purchased this fridge only 5 months ago. Now there is a really bad smell from the back of the fridge, its comming from a plastic tray which is full of dirty water. How do i remove it so i can clean it. Thankyou in Anticipation. Graham
Remove the cover grill plate at the bottom front.Just give it a good tug to pull it off.. It is held on by tension clips.. There is were you will find the drain pan..
Not sure if that is where the bad smell is coming from but certainly a good place to check..
If that is not it - put few boxes of Arm & Hammer baking soda in the fridge and freezer..
Give it about 24 to 48 hours..
If that does not work - you may consider contacting the store where you got the fridge for a replacement.. Maybe - just - maybe before it got to your home - a small rodent might have clibmed into it and died..
A new fridge should not have these oderes..

I had a similar problem with an unbearable smell, not inside, but outside the refregeration compartment. it was from the defrosted liquid that gets stored in a small open tank at the bottom on the rear side of the fridge. over time , particles settle along with water and gives a rooten smell, cleaning this tank solved it.
Hope this helps,

smell is urea,it is a gas produced when plastics get hot,it will go away in time,but also check the drain for a blockage (syringe with clorine bleach)and if fitted, wipe out the condensate pan with clorine
last make sure the door seals fit all round as iif not flush any condensate will drip out from the front bottom.

You should be able to remove the base grill by opening both doors to 90 degrees and pushing down while pulling outwards on the base grill to unlock the top clips, once the top is away roll the base grill toward you and up. From there you should be able to see the pan underneath which should slide out.
Clean it thoroughly and use a mixture of baking soda and water for final cleaning rinse and replace, I also mix some baking soda and water and pour in the bottom of the fridge to allow the mixture to cleanse the drip tube leading to the pan.
Installation is in reverse of removal
