Question about Electrolux Refrigerators

1 Answer

Stink-ola! Our new Maytag (from Office Depot) smells like rotten fish. We filled the thing with baking soda, but it won't go away. The ice smells like fish, the water smells like fish, the food smells like fish, the kitchen smells like fish. I think it's coming from the drip pan (or whatever it's called). We're going to try the suggestions at this site regarding the drip pan (would this qualify as a "DIRTY JOB"?).

I would call out Maytag as it looks as if an insulator on the motor is burning out.

Or a connector is overheating

Get it checked in case you have a fire

GE side by side refrigerator smells on the outside!


Mix 1/3 cup of bleach and 2/3 cup of water , and pour down drain tube (rear bottom in freezer section . Too much bleach and the smell of bleach would be circulated by the fan to the room , so be sure to add water .

Smelly Fridge


Try putting an open can or two of coffee inside. My mother's freezer had gotten unpluged and it was full of fish. She put cans of coffee inside and shut the door a couple of days later she took them out and the freezer did not stink anymore. Hope it works for you.
