Most refrigerator use R22 freon and this stuf does not smell very much. Maybe there is some milk or blood comming from a leakink pack, that entered between interior panel joints. Try placing an opened Harm & Hammer soda box; this could catch the odors. If after a week or so, this did not resolved this issue, I one had to replace some mineral wool (insulation) that as been contaminated with rotten food.

SOURCE: Bad smell coming from fridge
Is there any chance that small food particles have simply fallen into the fan and now trapped near or behind the fan ?
If this is the case, the food may be lodged in such a way that either heat given off from the fan or the fact the food may not be getting cool/frozen any longer, may have sent the food bad and is now generating the smell you describe.
I don't know of any fridge gas that smells like fish or funk as you put it, most are fairly neutral smelling or odorless to a point and certainly would not smell the way you have described.

SOURCE: chemical odor...
try putting crumpled newspaper in it daily to get rid of the smell, the coolant if leaking should not cause any horrible smell, Freon they use today has very little smell to it. Frost free units have
heaters and fans in them to keep them frost free. It could be that a
fan quit and the heater overheated something around it."
Let me know if this helps, good luck

All items stored in the refrigerator and freezer should be stored in sealed packaging. Frost free refrigerator operate with a very low humidity and will pick up odors from products. Somewhat of an ozone smell will be in some frozen foods. This is a normal condition. Deodorizing packs are available on the market to absorb odors. Baking soda does the job in most cases.
