Hello,
It sounds as if you may have had a spillage at some stage in the fridge unit and this has gone onto the tray at the rear of the unit at the bottom on top of the motor.There may be some other explanation when you do pull out the fridge to access this tray.It may be easier to clean the tray in position as they can gat damaged if you try to remove them.If so get some soapy water and a sponge then clean out and dry,also some spray dissinfectant in the tray after cleaning will help.

Can I freeze a crab pie


Yes you can, but when it defrosts it will be a bit watery. If you freeze it longer than 6 months, you may find it smells like Linseed oil. If it does throw it away, because the oil in the crab has gone rancid. The smell is unmistakable and unpleasant to eat.

You can keep the pie in a cold fridge for 5 days if you want to avoid freezing.

I am a trade chef BTW :>)

clean everything including the drain and pipe at the back of the fridge

Problem is rotten smell inside GE profile fridge. I've checked for rotten food-none; taken everything out and cleaned inside plus all shelves with added bleach in water. Smell is still there. I...


Hi, pull out the fridge and remove the back panel, and clean that area. Make sure no food is stuck under the fridge also. A rotten piece of fruit or other food, once under there, will smell until it totally decomposes. You can also 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. Finally, another popular methods of removing fridge odor include washing the entire fridge out with a vinegar and water solution, placing fresh coffee grinds or boxes of baking soda on each shelf and even using trays of cat litter.

Phillips whirlpool built in fridge /freezer smell coming from the fridge section,we have tried various things but the smell still persists


Could it be that there is degradation of the plastics due to heating of the defrosting coils or is it the smell off leaked gas.
Remove all the food stuff from the fridge and clean, wash the inside throughly. Now restart the fridge and after aboutone hour check for smell, continue this till you notice, if the smell comes in after about 10 hours then you must look into the defrosting heater for any traces of material on it causing the smell on heat.

My Matsui under counter fridge smells of old milk/veg really badly despite cleaning out thoroughly including catch tray at back and downpipe. It is only 1 year old - any advice gratefully received


Can you pull out the fridge and check that the plastic power cable has not been pressed against the compressor at the rear/bottom of the fridge?
Usually, overheated plastic cable smells like rotten veg!
