YOU MIGHT TRY TO UNCLIP THE COMPRESSOR AND MOVE IT OUT SLOWLY AS HOT TO KINK THE COPPER TUBING,ALSO MAKE SURE YOU USE CLAUK UNDER THE DRAIN PAN SO IT DOES NOT LEAK,HOPE THIS HELP,THANKS-MIKE

The adhesive is a contact adhesive and gets soft from the heat of the compressor. The idea is that condensate drips from the in cabinet drain onto this drainpan. The drainpan then is heated by the compressor running and water evaporates. The drainpan can get yucky from dust and bugs collecting in it. Difficult to remove but not impossible, you just glue it back in place when you refit. It is usually glued in place at the time the compressor is fitted. Your best bet would be to clean it in place and spong up the liquid. I usually put in a quarter teaspoon of granular chlorine (pool) into the drainpan and this keeps things a bit cleaner.

SOURCE: Cleaning drip tray.
I have just removed the drip tray from my fridge freezer and it was relatively easy.
Do not remove the compressor unit.
The drip tray is held in place by a metal clasp which is welded to the top of the compressor. The clasp is a flat piece of metal which must physically twisted to align with the key way in the plastic drip tray. I used thin pair of pliers to grip the clasp and twist it clockwise to line up with the tray key way. The tray then has to be carefully manouvred off the compressor so as not to cause damage or spill it foul smelling contents. This I managed to achieve fairly easily.
Clean out and install then twist the clasp to clamp the tray into position. I don't know what would happen if you didnt lock the tray back in position as it does not seem capable of falling off on its own and it would be easier to remove next time.
Hope this makes sense

I have the same problem,warranty just ran out but its been
leaking on and off for ages,must be this model.This much Ive figured out,what
happens is the drain hole gets blocked from ice freezing over the hole at the
back of freezer, the drain water has to go somewhere, since it cant leak out of
the drain hole where it suppose to it ends up pooling under the vege
compartment before ending up on the kitchen floor.Now if this is your only
problem,someone suggested to me to run a piece of copper wire from the
defrost heater to the drain hole so no ice can build up there,hence no more
leakage.To do this you'll have to take the back panel off and see for
yourself,I did this and Im a novice.Make sure you turn off and unplug the
fridge first and wait for it to defrost.
Now I think I have other things wrong with mine,after leakage problem the refrigeration compartment wont cool anymore but the freezer part remains working as usual.Ive nailed this down to one of the following not working... Thermostat / timer / defrost heater.So one or more of these needs replacing.Im just trying to look for a manual which shows the nuts and bolts or the refrigerator (not the "How to use" type manual which I have).

Remove the cover grill plate at the bottom front.Just give it a good tug to pull it off.. It is held on by tension clips.. There is were you will find the drain pan..
Not sure if that is where the bad smell is coming from but certainly a good place to check..
If that is not it - put few boxes of Arm & Hammer baking soda in the fridge and freezer..
Give it about 24 to 48 hours..
If that does not work - you may consider contacting the store where you got the fridge for a replacement.. Maybe - just - maybe before it got to your home - a small rodent might have clibmed into it and died..
A new fridge should not have these oderes..
