    P.S I would like to point out that i don't even like fish, incase, if you think i had a row fish put in my refrigerator to cause the smell. It had happened once befor and i just cleaned it out with sponge and soapy water and it was fine, so i don't understand why it didn't work this time.

Check the lower door gasket and clean if necessary. Check the drain pan under the refrigerator on left side bottom behind the toe plate below the door. Clean if necessary.

Please note when you keep fish in freezer once, the smell will be longer even you remove it. O.K. Now solution for your problem- Please unplug power.Keep fridge door open. Take wet cloth dipped in soap water and clean all compartment including freezer . Keep freezer door also opened.Then clean with dry cloth. Spray room spray in your room not into the fridge. And allow 5 hrs to circulate fresh air to pass thr' your fridge and then close fridge and freezer doors. Plug fridge and run for one hour on empty. After one hour store items in fridge and/or freezer.
Keep all food items in closed style which will avoid odor spreading and also be a hygienic. Thanks.

Make sure that nothing is dead inside it like a mouse, you may have to take off the back panel. Than I would clean it with a solution of vinager and water. This works really good at removing odors, you could also try putting a open box of baking soda in the fridge.

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 .
