How do I remove a chemical smell from my freezer and refrigerator?


From my experience smell from freezer is available to remove with lemon water (1 lemon juice + 1 liter water). wipe with a soft rag. Perfectly if freezer is not plugged to 220V power and doors are open 1-3 days.

Strong Odor when running


The smell is coming from the condenser heating up which should be located all around the outside of the box. When it is in pull down from being warm the condenser will get very hot and the smell would be the spray foam and any other chemicals in the vicinity heating up. When heated up to a certain point they will off gas and you may get a smell. After a little wile the smell should go away for good.

About 5 days ago I noticed a strong chemical smell (like open permanent markers or nail polish remover) in my kitchen. The smell permiates the whole house, but is strongest in the kitchen area when I close...


No. The coolant cannot leak as a liquid and soak into the floor. Also, the smell of the coolant (refrigerant) does not have the acetone/ketone/laquer thinner smell that you are describing, and if someway the smell originated from the frig, the smell would without a doubt be inside the frig as well. You need to look frosome container stored in a cabinet or stored on conrete floor that has rusted or opened some way and the thinner/cleaner/solvent has leaked from such a containerwithout notice. Goodluck, Macgivor

I just moved into a house 10 days ago. I don't know how old the appliances in the kitchen are, but I would guess +/-20 years. There is a very strong solvent-like (sort of like lighter fluid) smell...


I would shut down the refrigerator and give it a good clean out with soap n water, if it is cooling ok i suspect the previous owners cleaned it with an abrasive cleaner like oven cleaner. Freon really does not smell that bad...maybe a little like propane.

Ice and Refrigerator and Freezer smell like alcohol chemical


I believe that you might have a coolant leak causing the chemical odor. You really should get it checked out by a fridge repair-person because it's not healthy to breathe in the fumes.
