Place a piece of charcoal inside it overnight. This should deodorize it.
Also inspect the external openings to see if the smell is caused by dead mouse or gecko.

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..

The washing smells of dirty water, have tried all sorts, but cannot get rid of the smell.

Several things to try:

Check the empty pump filter, that may be clogged with smelly debris
Ensure that the empty pipe is correctly inserted into the drain pipe and that there is a trap on the drain that stops smells coming back
Finally (This may sound odd) with no clothing in the machine, throw 3 dishwasher tablets in the drum and run it through the hottest cycle the machine can run. Smells can often be bacterial caused by biological washing powder which builds up bugs in the machine. Dishwasher tablets are anti-bacterial and will kill the bugs.

My fridge and freezer smell and I do not know where it is coming from. Have cleaned numerous times with different things including bleach and vinegar. What could be the cause?

  • This is a different smell than I am used to hearing about....You say you have cleaned the fridge and freezer several times. I do not know what was used to clean it with but I would do this.....use bleach on the plastic in the fridge. Try to be sure to get the crisper drawers as well with bleach. It may be strong to start with but the smell of bleach dissipates very quickly. When you get done there is a tray under the fridge that collects water when it goes on defrost cycle(assuming its a self defrosting unit?) I would clean out the tray underneath and if you can get under the fridge by moving it try moping the floor under it with bleach.Ammonia can be used instead of bleach but do not mix them together.
  • When you are all done be sure to have a fresh box of baking soda for the fridge.Open the box and set it in the back on the top shelf, wait 24 to 36 hours and write ma back and lat me know where we stand.
  • I hope this is helpful and please rate me for my answer if you can....thank you and speak with you soon!

Odor in GE side by side Fridge

Sounds like mold.  I'd try Lysol or one of the other products that claims to treat the odor cause in the air.  Spray a quantity into the empty fridge and freezer and turn it on.  Let the fans spread the stuff around. Try to find the internal vents which seem to pull air into the coils to spray into.
