There Should Be A Grill On The Front Bottom Below The Door. Remove That And It Should Come Out Of The Right Side.

Does a Danby 5 cu ft chest freezer have a drip pan? If not, how can I get rid of the rotten meat smell?


The drip pan on any freezer collects ice melts from the evaporator during the defrost cycle. Most of them are mounted on the compressor and use the compressor waste heat to evaporate the water.
If there is rotten meat smell in the drip pan it means there is also rotten meat smell in the evaporator coils and fins.
It's almost impossible to get "stuff" out of the evaporator fins unless you take the unit apart.
This means you will probably have to remove and replace the refrigerant plus evaporator and the entire process could take two 8 hour days or more.
Alternately,
after you completely wash it out you can try placing a pan of hot water in it and run it empty. The steam will condense on the evaporator and freeze. Then defrost it . Hopefully this will wash some of the funk away. You might have to do this several times.
If that doesn't work then cost wise the unit is junk.
Suggest in future wrap your meats in freezer bags or other
water/air tight containers in case power goes off.
Monitoring your freezer is a must to catch issues before smelly spoilage can set in.

Kenmore elite (795.75544401)is suddenly dripping water from the bottom of left french door.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The dripping water could be from the evaporator coil unit.... Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit.... The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator unit, so you need to clear that contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the top shelf in the refrigerator compartment. Another cause may be the refrigerator may have doorframe heaters to evaporate any condensation on the cabinet frame. If your refrigerator is equipped with a switch inside that says “energy saver” or something like that, while running in that mode the door heaters are disabled. Turn the switch to the opposite setting and wait 24 hours. If the water disappears the problem is solved.

Best of Luck,

Stink-ola!


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

Bad odor coming from drip pan when compressor kicks own[when dry]


I just had the same problem with my kenmore side by side. I have been noticing a nasty smell for the last couple weeks when the fan comes on. My husband just took the whole back of the refrigerator apart and put a flashlight in there. We could see the drip-pan and it was filled with stinky black mold!! It was very hard to remove, but he managed to get it out by taking the lower front (where the filter goes) apart and then he was able to slide out the drip pan and clean it out! Problem solved.....but Kenmore should really make the drip pan more accessable!
