Question about Kenmore 44273 Side by Side Refrigerator
A very unpleasant smell is coming from under the refrigerator from the drip pan, which almost always has water in it; looks like mold, yeuck. I took the front grate off but cannot access it that way, the opening is too small and it is taped in several places. It looks like I would need to unplug it and take off the lower right cardboard panel to reach the pan but the pan appears to be contoured and may not come out of the opening; don't want moldy water all over the place. Is there an easier way that I am missing here?
Mine is a whirlpool side-by-side ED5GTN which must be the same design as your Kenmore.
There is no way the drip pan will come out without tilting the refrigerator backwards.
The tape is removed, the foam packing, the filter removed, the pan is not flexible enough because the pan broke.
I have worked on this until my hand is bleeding from struggling with this poor design. Custumer service was no help..said, "Well, I don't know."
I'll wait for help to tilt the thing because there is black mold and I want all removed from the bottom of the refrigerator. This design is not only "NOT customer friendly but unhealthy for your home."

The tape and foam is there when the refreg was shipped. majority of the people or the installer never removes the tape and the foam.
there is no other place for the pan to come out.
carefully remove the tape and the move the pan forward, remove the foam and the pan should come out with ease.
