Whirlpool refrigerator has an awful smell coming from the bottom. We cleaned the drip pan the smell went away, the next day the motor turned on and the smell came back. Can it be the motor?


If the fridge is failing to keep the freezer as cold as it was, it is only a matter of time (hours or maybe a day) before it stops cooling completely.

If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs, and cooling inside is diminished, it is very likely that the refrigerant has escaped due to line chafing, rupture or compressor failure. This is not the type of failure your want. Many times, this repair costs many hundreds of dollars to repair and isn't worth the expense. Other times, a line can be repaired after cleaning & evacuation. A service port is installed to allow a new refrigerant charge to be introduced to the fridge.

The only way to know for sure is to have it checked by a licensed refrigeration mechanic or fridge repair technician.

Good luck!

There is a bad smell coming from the back of the fridge. The inside smells fine, the freezer does not smell either. It looks like there is some kind of tray inside the back of the fridge. Its is filled...


If you are referring to the drip pan that on the bottom of the fridge, that could be the source of your odor problem. Take the pan out and check to see what is in it. Normally there should only be just water that comes from the defrost cycle.

How to get a smell out of a hotpoint fridge.we try bread soda.what else can we use


You may have had something drip and somehow get under the fridge. I know blood dripping from meat will smell. It could have dripped down through the defrost drain tube to the pan underneath. You can access the pan from the rear by removing the cardboard cover. If the smell seems to be coming from the pan, it's difficult to remove so I would just pour some bleach in it to kill any smell and you may can wipe it out from there. The drain tube may also have the smell in it so you can pour some bleach into it from the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear panel. You can move the fridge to see if anything is pooled on the floor that might smell.

Stink-ola!


I would call out Maytag as it looks as if an insulator on the motor is burning out.

Or a connector is overheating

Get it checked in case you have a fire

Bad odor coming from drip pan when compressor kicks own[when dry]


I just had the same problem with my kenmore side by side. I have been noticing a nasty smell for the last couple weeks when the fan comes on. My husband just took the whole back of the refrigerator apart and put a flashlight in there. We could see the drip-pan and it was filled with stinky black mold!! It was very hard to remove, but he managed to get it out by taking the lower front (where the filter goes) apart and then he was able to slide out the drip pan and clean it out! Problem solved.....but Kenmore should really make the drip pan more accessable!

Nasty smell in garage.....think its coming from refrigerator


It's either the drip tray which is removeable from the front, or, mice are playing in the drip tray under the compressor. Soak in up, rinse with some ammonia water & repeat a few times. Rinse well when done. Line up some sticky traps behind the fridge. The mice found a playground amd they will return.
