Bad smell in tray at rear of fridge

Hi, I have a small whirlpool fridge with an icemaker compartment (can't find the model no. anywhere, not even in the booklet that came with it). There is a horrible smell coming from a tray at the bottom back of the fridge which is hooked on to some pipes. Can I remove this and if so how - it won't seem to budge. I can see there is brown liquid in there which must be the smell!

Maybe you could use a wet/dry shop vac to clean it out

Whirlpool fridge making a low, intermitant groaning sound


Is it coming from inside fridge compartment or freezer compartment or from outside back. If it is from freezer compartment and you have no water line connected to ice maker. Then it might be just your ice maker trying to go into fake harvesting mode. Make sure the Icemaker is off. Icemaker arm should be up.

Check to see if the sensor in the freezer compartment is encased in ice. If so, do a complete defrost and restart the unit. Another possibility is a bad thermostat and/or sensor.

I have water pooling on my fridge trays and than turning into ice . The water seems to be coming from the vents. How do i get rid of that.


The freezer compartment has a drain hole behind the back wall inside the freezer compartment. The drain hole has probably rusted and has gotten larger. Carefully remove the icemaker and the screws from the back wall inside the freezer compartment. Lift the bottom of the back wall and look to see if the drain hole has gotten larger. You can make a small funnel from an aluminum can to fit over this area directing the water into the drain tube. It worked for me. good luck. Dave.

A really bad smell coming from the fridge


I had a similar problem with an unbearable smell, not inside, but outside the refregeration compartment. it was from the defrosted liquid that gets stored in a small open tank at the bottom on the rear side of the fridge. over time , particles settle along with water and gives a rooten smell, cleaning this tank solved it.

Hope this helps,

Very bad tasting/smelling water and ice cubes - Superba KSRS27QAAL05


Since I found that the water itself being fed to the trays and being dispensed was bad. I replace the nylon, reinforced plastice icemaker hose with 1/4" copper supply line. That, along with purging the hopper (getting rid of) any old ice as well as washing the hopper out real good and giving the freezer a general cleaning - seemed to do the trick. No repugnant odor or taste. (I didn't even replace the filter- the cycle is every 6 mos.)

Hope this helps others who may be experiencing this same prob with this type of side by side appliance.

Good luck!
