Why is smell coming from behind neff fridge

The smell could come from many things. Food which fell behind the fridge, etc. A dead mouse, etc.

Move the fridge out - it has rollers. Clean the floor behind it, while at it, it become terrible unsanitary over years. Take a vacuum and suck up all the dirt around the compressor area. Your refrig will run better and become more efficient. Less cost of electricity. Pull out the pan under the fridge and empty the year long water it has collected. The pan must be pulled out from the front after removing the fake bottom panel connected either with clips or 2 screws in front bottom. The clips just unsnap when you pull the panel.

Fridge smell

It sounds as if you may have had a spillage at some stage in the fridge unit and this has gone onto the tray at the rear of the unit at the bottom on top of the motor.There may be some other explanation when you do pull out the fridge to access this tray.It may be easier to clean the tray in position as they can gat damaged if you try to remove them.If so get some soapy water and a sponge then clean out and dry,also some spray dissinfectant in the tray after cleaning will help.
