Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

Why is my GE Monogram, model zfsb26dnd SS, emitting an odor from the front bottom behind the base grill. The air blowing from underneath produces the smell when the fan is operating. The odor appears

I have checked for leaks on the inside and out, rotting food, cleaned the interior on both sides of the side by side with bleach and soap. I cleaned the door gaskets and ice dispenser. I even had a technician come and they did not find anything. However, he did remove the back cover and wiped away a lot of dust off the parts. The make and model is GE Monogram zfsb26dnd SS.

If your refrigerator is frost-free, check the drainage tray at the bottom, probably behind a removeable grille. You may find the tray is full of all kinds of disgusting stuff collected by drainage during defrost cycles. Remove the tray and clean it thoroughly. Reinstall the clean tray.

    Thanks for your response. The tray was not removable. I used a wet vac to suction and blow out the dust. I used a turkey baster to put water with clorox in the tray. After letting that sit, I suctioned it out. I used pipe cleaners drenched with clorox to clean the curved drain pipe. To clean the front side of the condensor, I had to remove the grill and brush off what I could with my dryer brush. The odor is still there.

I have a zfsb26dnd ss GE Monogram with a Dispenser board dead. ordered a new board and same result, ordered a new main control board and still nothing has changed. what else could I check or change?


You changed the main control board---is that the main mother board on the outside back wall of the refrigerator???? If not then the mother board may need changed. Part number WR55X10942. Just about every part of the refrigerator operation runs through that board. If you did change that already I would look for possibly a bad wiring connection to the dispenser system. There is usually wiring and plugs going through the hinge area of the door with the dispenser in it. some are at the top hinge some at the bottom depending on model number.

The coil underneath the refrigerator, called the condenser coil, is probably blocked with dirt. This causes undue heat on that coil and the dirt stinks. The condenser coil must be cleaned thoroughly.

Need radiant trays & lava rock replacements for GE Monogram 24" grill model # ZGG24L20BSS Natural Gas.


The tray and lava-rock is available at most larger retail hardware stores. You may not find the exact tray for your model, just get one of equal size.

Ge microwave spacesaver smells like burning wire researching the problem sounds like high voltage diode how do i get to the diode and check it


You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

With the model number, we can offer more specific advice or an estimate.

But since FixYa does not notify us experts of follow-ups, you would need to post a new help request.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Bad odor from plastic tray underneath refer


Depending on the model the tray may or may not be removable.

Try removing the front grille located below the doors close to the floor, typically this will pull off with a little force on ends. The pan if accessible should be on the left or center. If it is not removable you may be able to put some cleaner into the pan from the front.

If it is not accessible from the front you will need to roll the frig out and remove the back panel once you unplug the power cord. The panel on the rear near the bottom may look like a piece of cardboard but is important to put back.

Burnt plastic smell coming from bottom of frig


This is a sign of a short and should be looked at immediately. A smell like that is a sign of something burning. I could be the start relay and start capacitor with overload. But I would not sleep with the possibility of a fire. I will look over your model and see if I can find what this could be, Sea Breeze
