You can remove the acess panel from the back,the grill from the front, even pull out the drip pan from underneath.(small socket or nutdriver is all you need) Flood the area with light, (Unplug the unit first) and I bet you will find the culprit up under there somewhere.
good luck

Very bad smell coming from my Samsung refrigerator


most refrigerators have a small drainage hole leading from the inside rear of the compartment to an overflow container behind the unit, pull the unit away from the wall and check if the liquid in the container has become stagnant, if so simply clean it out and run a small amount of bleach down the hole to disinfect the tube.
hope this helps.

I know this might sound weird but there might be a dead rodent or other small animal under the fridge or squeezed in between small parts. This happened to us but it was not the fridge; it was the air-conditioning unit. If this has happened in your case, the smell will be really bad for a while and eventually go away when the animal has fully decayed.
Even if it is not a dead mouse, here is a good website that gives you the names of effective odour neutralising products. It's definitely worth having a look at. http://togetridofmice.com/2009/12/dead-mice-smell-dead-rat-smell.html
Good luck.

We have a terrible odor from fridge side. Cleaned it 3 times..found nothing and odor persists Any suggestion? No odors when doors are closed


What does it smell like? Burnt plastic , mold , rotten food? Check gaskets and temp in fridge, food could be spoiling. It is tough to get serious odors out of fridges. Bleach, vinegar are good for killing odors. Check manufactures recommendations.

Weird smell from refrigerator


Is the smell from inside the refrigerator or on the outside? If outside, it is possible a humid smell from the condensate drainpan water evaporating. You could put a very small amount (a couple of granules) of pool chlorine in the drainpan.
