Buy a couple of boxes of baking Soda, it will absorb the odor.

Freon leak in refrigerator?


no refrigerant leaks have little to no odor and if it was leaking bad enough to smell it the unit would be out of refrigerant and not cooling...the problem sounds like gases coming off of a veggie of something un-covered inside the fridge--have you put any veggies in the fridge or freezer un-covered check real good if one or a piece of something has fallen behind something else where you cannot see...all else fails remove all your products from the unit and clean and get a box of odor control arm&hammer to rid the smell..as for a leak in the sealed system i think your just fine.

Foul odor from back area of fridge/Kenmore bottom freezer


I had the same problem, but just fixed it. I have a maytag bottom freezer and when the fan blower comes on, there was a foul/stale smell that permeated the kitchen. There is no drip pan that I could remove to clean.

I just removed four screws from the back cover of the fan blower area, reached in with a small cup of organic odor remover and poured it into the drip pan just under the fan blower.

Any odor remover would work. probably vinegar or enzyme odor remover would work, too.

I now have fresh smell when the fan blower comes on.

Trying to see if it has a drain plug


FILL 1 or 2 shelves with crumpled up newspaper . The ink in the newspaper , will absorb odor . May take a while , but it's the only proven way I know of , to remove fish odor . May have to change paper every couple of days , till the odor is gone .

At low speeds the transmission shifts into 2nd with a 'thud'


Likely you have taken a lot of miles off the unit's life. You can try a container of lucas trans conditioner in there...likely there is a lot of varnish holding internal valves from moving (actually surprised it works at all!!)

My crock pot has a terrible odor


This crock pot is too old to use anymore and may be dangerous to plug in to an electrical plug. If I were you I would get a new one that has a removable insert that can be cleaned easily. That would be a safe thing to buy yourself.
I have one they work great.

Fish odor


I turned off my frig and washed it out with soapy water, then I went over it and cleaned it out with lemon and vinegar. I let it sit open for one day. It did not work. As soon as I plugged in the frig it was smelling like shrimp again. Then I put two round cake pans FILLED with ground coffee and crumbled up news paper lightly sprayed with water and let it sit for two whole days. It WORKED. My frig does not smell like shrimp or fish any more. It smelled like coffee but it will go away in a couple of days and your frig will smell good.
