Used wrong water filter. Now that we replaced with correct filter, there is a horrible odor in the refrigerator.


Hello Mary;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Putting in the wrong water filter will not effect the smell in your refrigerator. At times the granules in a water filter will break down and get into your water dispenser and ice cube tray. This should not create a bad smell, just cloudy water.

Your plastic liner in your refrigerator has pores and holds odor. You have something in your fresh food section or freezer that is spoiled. Your fresh food section receives cooling air from your freezer. If you have a spoiled product in your freezer you will not smell it because it is frozen. But, as the cooling air goes into your fresh food section and cools down you will smell it.

Find the bad product in your freezer and discard.

With a 50% solution of white vinegar and water wash the plastic liner.

Now you can put a tray of baking soda in your unit, until you purchase deodorizers based on temperature requirements, one especially designed for the freezer section and one for fresh food section. These deodorizer are about $12.00 each.

Try Lowe's and Home depot.

How does one clean inside of freezer which had spoiled meat?


Hello Norm;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Plastic liners hold odor.

1.) Scrub down the liner with vinegar and water. Place baking soda on the shelves and close the door.

2.) There are special air fresheners for freezers to prevent odor. Sears carries them for about $12.00.

Freezer is not freezing


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire freezer is not getting cold enough to freeze your food. I suggest cleaning the compressor, underneath your appliance, by using an attachment on your vacuum. I also suggest lowering the temperature and giving your freezer 4-24 hours to stabilize at that temperature. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dishwasher status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, please leave me the model number of your freezer. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My ice cubes have a funny odor/taste.


Does your refrigerator have a water filter? if it has one it will be in the kickplate/grill below the freezer door. If it has one replace the filter.

Personally, I have used bleach & warm water solution to scrub out interior.....then rinse thoroughly....followed by drying thoroughly. Now place a box or two of Baking Soda in freezer (depending on size) and close.

Smell from fridge freezer even after thorough cleaning and disinfecting and defrosting Model Hotpoint RFA52. Temperature control OK


Put Charcole brickets in the refrigerator. Charcole works better than baking soda and usually take care of the smell.

Icemaker Waterline has Bacteria in it


This bacteria (for most of us) is not harmful. Ive never heard of anyone becoming sick from this stuff but I suppose someone might have an allergy. I see it in Ice Machines that are in restaurants all the time. It seems more prevalent in ones that do a lot of baking where yeast or Bread is used a lot like Bakeries Pizza and Hamburger fast foods...places.
Do you store a bread doe in your refrigerator? The air communicates with the freezer air. This is how its transferred. Clean the reddish stuff out again. Clean and wipe the outer containers and the walls and ceiling and under crisper in the refrigerator. Then if your going to store anything that you use with yeast or other types of activator that puts off CO2 (I E Baking soda or power?) double bag it in plastic bags. See if this solves your problem. If the stuff comes back it must be in your water supply. Are you on a treated water supply?

Hope this helps if so please rate me accordingly and good luck.
