Question about Maytag MBB1956GES Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
We have noticed a bad fishy smell coming from fridge, we cleaned it out looked under it behind it and cant find the problem. We have noticed the smell is strong coing from the fan in the back and inside when then the fan is on. The smell has changed in the last week from a fishy smell to a funk smell. GROSS We have had the fridge for 3 or 4 or so years and never had this happen before.
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.

Unplug fridge. Remove the panel on the back of the fridge look for dead rodents or fungal growth in the drain pan. consult your local appliance parts distributor for a product called kleene air or try www.reliableparts.com
