Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

Odours from fridge

Had fish in fridge for one day defrosting it. The fridge started to smell so we thoroughly cleaned and defrosted fridge and freezer. the fridge still smells especially when the blowing air comes out of the fridge. We think the smell is in the air system or what ever cools the fridge because we can't get rid of the smell.

The air itself blowing out of the fridge freezer smells like fish


These are no fun to clean. There is something in the defrost tray that is smelling. You need to post the make and model number and then get ready to unload the unit and take off the cover to get to the evaporator coils and clean them and the drain and tray.

Defrosting Tips for Your Fridge & Freezer


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Defrosting fridge/freezers is much easier with a two-control model. That way, you can use the fridge to keep foodstuffs frozen while you deal with the freezer.
Are you thinking of defrosting method for your freezer or fridge? Then check this out.
Always switch off and unplug the freezer before cleaning or defrosting.
Load the contents of your freezer into large dustbin bags and cover the bags with a duvet or blanket. The food should stay frozen for several hours. But use a cool box for ice cream or soup which melts quickly.
After defrosting, wash fridges and freezers with a solution of two teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda to 1 liter (2 pints) of warm water-it removes lingering smells.
Rub the inside of your freezer with glycerine, available from chemists, after it has defrosted. When you next have to defrost it, the ice will come away from the sides more easily.
Use a wet/dry vacuum cleaner to **** up any water left on the floor.
If you do not like defrosting, you can always pay more for a frost-free freezer which never needs it. www.victorwod1234.blogspot.com

PUT A BOX OF BAKING SODA IN REFRIGE AND 1 INTO FREEZER ALSO. BUT TAKE EVERYTHING OUT, MAKE SURE NOTHING SPILLED AND IS UNDER A DRAW ROTTING. IF ALL IS CLEAN INSIDE, PULL OUT REFRIDGE IN BOTTOM BACK IS AN EVAPORATOR PAN FOR CONDENSATION, SOMETIMES SOMETHING CRAWLS UP INSIDE GETS TRAPPED AND DIES.

During holydays, due to an interruption in the power service, the food of the freezer department defrosted, and now there is bad odour in the fridge. I cleaned it, but the odour did not disappear. What...


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. If you are using it and need to keep using it buy about 4 boxes of arm and hammer baking soda and cut the top off. Place 3 in fresh food compartment and one in the freezer. It takes time but it does eventually pull out that odor. However... you need to look under the refrigerator at the water catch basin plastic tray. Often liquids from a defrosted refrigerator drain into the pan down there and dry out. Then everytime the unit auto defrosts (2 - 3 times a day that) bad odor is noticed again because the water produced from defrosting liquifies the material in the plastic tray. You should clean that tray really well and wipe out all of the black goo / gunk. Make sure you look at the very end of the cabinet drain tube also that terminates in that same pan. I have found that using Mr. Muscle mold and mildew cleaner does a really good job of cleaning and removing that foul smell. A trade secret here we use Endust on a dry clean inner cabinet to make them smell good and shine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Unpleasant smell inside


Here's what you do. I know it is going to sound funny but it always works. Wad up a bunch of news papers and place them in the frige along with a stick of dynamite (only kidding about the dynamite) along with a box of baking soda. The newspapers will remove the smell in a couple of days.

Hope this helps

The fridge is producing a bad odour from some


The odor is coming from the defrost liquid Throw it away and clean the interior of the refrigerator with detergent and remove moisture. Dry it by opening the door for about 3 or 4 hours and then set the
temperature control button at strong.

Fish odor in freezer and fridge


Unplug first. You will need to clean the inside of the refrigerator and the freezer with a good cleaner and warm water. After this you need to remove the rear panel in the back of the freezer and spray water with Clorox on the evaporator coil and pour some of the solution down the defrost condensate drain to disinfect and remove the odors that drain down that hole to be evaporated and returned to the air in your home. That should take care of the fish smell, Please rate my solution, Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE side by side refrigerator smells on the outside!


Mix 1/3 cup of bleach and 2/3 cup of water , and pour down drain tube (rear bottom in freezer section . Too much bleach and the smell of bleach would be circulated by the fan to the room , so be sure to add water .

Warm fridge cold freezer


Hi,advance thermostat setting, to get colder , it's possible you got defrost problem, is there excessive ice building inside back of freezer? to determine if you have a defrost problem, unplug ref. for about an hour,let it defrost, let all ice melt away, it's better to remove your produce, keep doors open to speed up defrosting, after defrosting and cleaning plug back your ref, and let it work for another hour, and check result, if it's o/k, put back your produce, let me know, during hot summer months, regular use (opening) of ref, could cause excessive ice build-up evap. if after defrosting and cleaning ref. work good for 3 to 4 days, but start doing the same thing, let me know, it means you got a defrost problem. also check your thermostat, but first defrost and clean it, that could just be your problem. good luck.
