    I have cleaned and bleached the inside of fridge and freezer. The smell is coming from around the fridge itself. I was told to clean drip pan but can't find it. Its an old fridge with no manual

    Look behind the unit UNDER the refrigerator compartment. It is a tray usually located on top of or around the compressor where the heat evaporates any collected water.

Get rid of all that spoiled and put in a bowl of baking soda to absorb smell.

SOURCE: foul odor

Yes ,there is a condensate drain pan in the compressor compartment under your unit.
You should be able to get to it from the rear of the unit, by remove several screws.

Use caution and unplug unit before attempting any repair.
The pan can be cleaned out with warm soapy water.

SOURCE: Fridge drip tray removal

remove toe kick on bottom of fridge, should be some screws on both sides. tray slides out, maybe not all the way dont force, there is a float mechanism that will stop it from coming out all the way, use some paper towels or rags to soak up the stagnant water, this pan should have a heater hooked up to it to evaporate the water, the installer should have hooked this up on installation, they dont hook it up at the factory to get a better EER out the factory door, just trace back to the pan and hook up any unplugged wires going to it, good luck

SOURCE: Milk which was spilled in the fridge has dripped

Hello. yes. The tray can be slid out. Before you do this, unplug your fridge. Then remove the lower front grill, it just lifts off. Grasp the tray and gently pull it forward. J.

Where is the drip tray on the Westinghouse rv432v-l fridge


Not familiar with this model, but these trays are normally underneath, you should be able to access from the back.

How do I remove the plastic drip tray from behind my Wesitnghouse Aurora Fridge Freezer.


we had a really bad smell coming from the back of our westinghouse aurora. and yes found it to be emanating from drip tray at the back. To remove this we had to undo 4 clips at the base of black motor thingy, that the plastic drip box sits on. Then we were able to lift whole thing a bit ,(10mm up and 50mm out, approx) so we could tilt everything forward and sweeze and wiggle tray out. then cleaned with bleach. also we unblocked hole inside fridge that allows water to drip into drip tray at back.

Milk which was spilled in the fridge has dripped into the drip tray behind the fridge and has created the most awful smell. Can the tray be removed for cleaning and if so how?


Yes, usually the tray can be removed for cleaning. You will have to pull the fridge out, unplug power, remove the rear access cover. Then you should see the evaporator / condensate tray and how to remove it.
