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.

How to remove the odour of rotten meat from freezer


Clean the inside of the freezer properly with a strong detergent and then, using a very old trick, place an open packet of baking powder or a piece of coal in the freezer to remove any remaining smell.

Freezer got unplugged, meat spoiled, freezer cleaned, smell remains. What can we do to get rid of smell?


I have found that the best cleaners for removing left over odors are citrus based cleaners. They help to neutralize odors and prevent re-occurrence. You could also use a diluted bleach as well to sanitize the inside. Make sure it is not too potent or the bleach odor will overcome the bad odor in annoyance.
Good luck!!

Broke down after 3 years!! Any ideas on what wrong and how to fix it?


Hi Bill,
You will not like this repair at all. It is cheap and easy but usually really gross. So hold your nose and read on.
This time of year we have little visitors in our garages that like to find a warm place to cuddle up. They will crawl into the back of your freezer and find your warm compressor and start looking for places to build a house. While walking around they will eventually walk directly into the condensor fan and and usually they will not die, they will just be stuck in the fan blades. The heat that begins to build up will slowly cook the little critter and you will get a foul smell for a couple of days. Then you will notice the freezer has stopped cooling well. To repair simply remove the rat from the condensor fan and you got it fixed. In some cases the fan can burn out from the jam so you may need to replace it. I always hate to do this job, it is easy but who likes to handle a cooked rat??? Grossss.. Please dont forget to rate me and try to have a nice day.

Frost free freezer smells like fish


IF THERE WAS A LAYER OF ICE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FREEZER, THE DRAIN IS PROBABLY PLUGGED UP. IT WILL NEED TO BE CLEARED BEFORE PUTTING BACK INTO SERVICE OR IT WILL JUST DRAIN INTO THE FLOOR OF THE FREEZER AGAIN. AS FAR AS THE ODOR, TRY PUTTING CHARCOAL IN IT TO ABSORB THE ODORS. IT WILL HAVE TO BE LEFT IN THERE FOR QUITE A WHILE. WHEN THE FREEZER IS CHILLED, IT WILL LESSEN THE SEVERITY OF THE ODOR. IF THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE, THERE ARE COMMERCIAL ODOR NEUTALIZERS ON THE MARKET YOU CAN USE.
