Bad fan blower smell and bad smelling and tasting ice cubes from ice cube maker


If unit has a water dispenser, how does water taste? I've run across bell peppers that will emit a bad smell. Keep in mind 95% of all refrigerators circulate air from freezer to refrigerator side and then back. It continues to circulate air so bad produce from refrigerator side will get into freezer side and ice will absorb smell. First, dump all ice. Then line shelves in refrigerator side with newspaper, that absorb smells. You can even try kitty litter in small cups in refrigerator side. Bell peppers gives off that metallic smell and can take some time to get out of unit. Highly unlikely a motor is bad and you've already changed outside water line.

Has an awful smell even after cleaning frige


Sometimes putting a couple of open boxes of baking soda in the fridge and freezer will help get rid of the smell. You can also scrub the interior with a solution of water and borax. If you can stand the smell of vinegar, cleaning with that will help as well..

Oder in freezer and refrigerator


the smell is bacteria caused by the buildup of moss from condensation.switch off unit do a complete defrost,( leave the doors open).wipe out the interior with chlorine bleach(the smell will go in about an hour or so)syringe the drain with bleach and then dry thoroughly.after drying switch on and leave to settle for 24 hours to regain operating temp(fridge +2/5c...freezer -18c)then refill with food,covering any open dishes.try to fill all drawers in freezer with food and any spare space fill with screwed up newspaper.
use a toothbrush to get into door seals/corners DO NOT USE HEAT/SHARP OBJECTS TO DEFROST.use towels in bottom to soak up all the water....

TOWARDS THE BNACK IN THE REFRIGERATOR THERE ARE DEODERIZERS THAT NEED TO BE TAKEN OUT AND SOAKED IN WATER THEN DRIED OUT IN THE SUN. THEN OPU CAN REPLACE THENM AND THEY SHOULD WORK AGAIN.

Our Kenmore Coldspot has an awful odor whenever you open the door


use straight bleach on it. sponge down the whole inside with bleach and if you can leave the doors open on it to let it breathe and clear the odor out. bleach kills most smells if left on for awhile.go over it a couple of times if you have to to get rid of the smell.
