Question about GE GTS22KBP Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Fridge smell I have a GE GTS18HCMERWW top freezer refrigerator (with an ice maker which we have never hooked up). We lost our power for 5 days a couple of weeks ago. We threw everything out and cleaned out the inside. There's not a smell on the inside, but every now and then, there's a very strong odor when we walk by it. Could there be a drain that's clogged or something like that? I can't find a drain pan if there is one. I don't have the original paperwork for the machine (it was a "hand-me-down") and I can't find a diagram of it. Thanks for the help.

Re: fridge smell

Almost all top freezer fridges have a small drain pan underneath, just above the floor. Should be a grill of some sort that can be removed underneath the door. Remove it, look in there. Also a good time to clean out all the dust, hair, and cherrios that are back in there. Good Luck !

Stop cooling every 5 days I defrost manual GSS201ETCBB

Does the freezer / fridge door close good? Check the hinges. Also check the seal and the amount of food stuff you may have close to the door. If you have an ice maker make sure you have it secured inside the freezer section.

It sounds like something is keeping the freezer door open or from closing good.

Foul odor coming from freezer. Kenmore model w/ freezer on top.

Clean the refrigerator thoroughly fresh food and freezer under all drawers. Then place charcoal briquettes in each 8 or 10 total. 4 or 5 in the bottom of the fresh food section. leave the for several days. If that doesnt take away the smell consider if a mouse may have gotten into a fan blade and well that can create a really bad smell.

Ice and Refrigerator and Freezer smell like alcohol chemical

I believe that you might have a coolant leak causing the chemical odor. You really should get it checked out by a fridge repair-person because it's not healthy to breathe in the fumes.
