The gas that runs your fridge does not smell. Take the drawers out and clean underneath them - you'll probably find that something spilled and went behind and under the drawers. Or maybe it is just spoiled food. There is also a massive possibility that it is the smell of onions. Bottom line, do a good cleanout of your fridge

Water not staying in radiator no sign of leaks in my 2000 bmw


does the car seem to run roughly? sounds like a possible head gasket or a cracked cylinder. is there an unusual amount of moisture coming out of the exhaust pipe, would smell like antifreeze gaseous sweet smell. a crack will fill either the top of a given cylinder but only when the engine is not running. head gasket will dump water into the oil giving it a milky look also will be prone to overheating

Has an awful smell even after cleaning frige


Sometimes putting a couple of open boxes of baking soda in the fridge and freezer will help get rid of the smell. You can also scrub the interior with a solution of water and borax. If you can stand the smell of vinegar, cleaning with that will help as well..

My mini one has developed a strong gaseous smell


By just this limited information, It sounds like an evap problem. This system is what recycles the gas fumes back into the engine from the fuel system to be burnt. any more information about this concern? I would not drive it like that, Could be a potential fire hazard.

Unpleasant smell inside


Here's what you do. I know it is going to sound funny but it always works. Wad up a bunch of news papers and place them in the frige along with a stick of dynamite (only kidding about the dynamite) along with a box of baking soda. The newspapers will remove the smell in a couple of days.

Hope this helps

Is a leak coming from the bottom of my freezer with a strong gaseous smell dangerous?


Its not dangerous, its expensive. That ammonia smell means that your heating unit is shot, needs to be replaced, and there are a coupla ways to go here.

1) Order up a rebuilt (or new) online, and replace it yourself. (Handyman skill level:fair.) $500.

2) Go to an RV repair shop and have that done $700.00 - $100.00

3) Buy a new fridge. $1000.00 +

Foul odor from beneath the frige!


You have a couple possibilities. Either something spilled in the frig and ran down into the drip pan or you have a dead critter under there. The pan is not removable and cleaning it is a pain. take a good look under there from the back and the front.
