Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

1 Answer

Hot plastic smell

There is an awful plastic smell throughout the house. It smells like hot plastic. I can tell it is coming from the fridge. Every so often there is a sound similar to the sound of the ice tray filling with water.

For now I think it would be a good time for the ice maker to be unplugged from the inside wall of freezer. Sounds like the heating element under the ice maker is remaining on. Let me know if its hot under ice maker. Even so this is something we need to find now. Sea Breeze

I burnet a styfoam, and plastic cover in the microwave. The smell is awful, like melted plastic and burnt wood. My entire house smells horrible. Is there some way to get the smell out.


Try pouring some vinegar in a cup and microwaving until the vinegar steams. This works well when burnt popcorn smells up the microwave.

Awful smell coming from refrg. ge told me there is no drip pan that i can access. any other solutions? model MBF1956KEG


I live in a trailer park and i didn't have a fridge. A neighbour went to a nursing home and left everything behind so i salvaged his fridge. He was taken by ambulance in january and by march or april i got the fridge. Everything in it had spoiled. The stench of rotted meat was very bad. The smell was similar to a slaughterhouse. Meat juices had gotten in-between the plastic panels. I washed what i could outside using quadrated ammonia, even TSP and hot water... nothing solved the problem. I reasoned that i needed ozone to destroy the smell. They rent ozone machines but a product like fabreeze is made of ozone so i tried that. I had to spray it a couple times over a few days using the one for surfaces. The smell completely disappeared.

I just moved my dads fridge to my house and after about 7 hours I smelled a burnt plastic smell. I smell it on and off.The fridge is still cooling.When i moved it I layed it down.


When a fridge is layed down the oil in the compressor will flow into the refridgerant lines and will have to be stood upright until the oil can return the the comrpessor. It may be too late for yours but I would try cutting it off for a day before trying it again. This may not be the cause of the smell so keep a nose on that and try to locate exactly where it's coming from.

Fridge & Freezer smell like a gas grille...


Do you mean it smells like propane? Or does it smell like propane exhaust (think taxi cab or fork lift)?

Either sounds pretty serious. I have heard of people using hydrocarbons to recharge refrigeration systems, though it is not the recommended method.

Do you own your residence or do you rent? Either way, call a repair man or the management of your rental right away and insist to have it inspected.

Fridges might smell like plastic or stale air if not used in awhile, but not propane/exhaust that I have ever heard of.

Smell of oil throughout the house when the boiler is on


Other than the stench of fuel oil permeating every soft surface throughout the house, there are numerous health hazards associated with exposure to petrochemical vapors. Shut the unit off until you can get it repaired.

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
