You will have to conceder that ice cubes are like sponges. They will absorb odors from food or items within the unit. If the water entering the unit has no odor, the smells are from the food or liner within the unit. Here is a science experiment for you, try fresh coffee grounds, use this in both sections in an open container and the coffee smell will over power the smells but will absorb in the ice cubes. This will prove this issue. Consider using a deodorizer in the unit to absorb odors from uncovered foods and placed in both section within the unit. I hope this helps. Good Luck
HERE ARE 10 EFFECTIVE WAYS TO REMOVE THE BAD SMELL:
1. CharcoalCharcoal is on top of my list as it is one of
the best absorbent agents that can absorb and soak up the bad odour.
Charcoal is also widely used as water filters and in most odour
removing commercial products. You can put a medium-sized chunk of
charcoal inside your smelly refrigerator for instance, and leave it
there for a couple of days. You will notice that it can effectively
remove the bad smell.
2. Baking SodaBaking soda is also
a good absorbent. Put a generous amount of baking soda in an uncovered
container (the size of the container depends on the size of the
confined area) and leave it for several days. Remove the baking soda
and replace it with new one and leave it for a couple of days. Continue
replacing the baking soda until it has cleared the bad smell.
3. Lemon or Lime PeelJust
put some lemon or lime peels into an uncovered container and leave them
inside the confined area for a couple of days. The citrus smell will
naturally replace the bad smell.
4. Pandan Leaf (also known as Pandanus or Screwpine)It
is easy to get pandan leaf in tropical countries as it is widely used
in Southeast Asian cooking to add aroma to dishes. Its pleasant aroma
also acts as natural air freshener. Just take a few strips of the
pandan leaves and tie them into knots. Place the leaves inside the
confined space and leave them until the leaves withered or dried up.
Replace the leaves regularly until the smell goes away.
5. Vanilla Essence Pour
several drops of vanilla essence on a couple of cotton wools. Toss the
cotton wools inside the confined space such as your wardrobe. Leave
them for several days and you will notice that the area smells nice.
6. Mint Extract If
you favor neither the smell of citrus nor vanilla, you can perhaps use
mint extract instead. Pour several drops of mint extract on a couple of
cotton wools. Toss the cotton wools inside the confined space and leave
them for a couple of days.
7. Fresh Ground CoffeeGround
coffee has a nice, crisp natural aroma. Just put about a cup of ground
coffee in a flat, uncovered container. Place the container inside the
confined space for several days. If the bad smell is extremely
horrible, put more ground coffee. The area will smell of fresh coffee
for many days.
8. Tea BagsIf you don't like coffee,
you can use tea bags instead. Just place 2-3 tea bags inside the
confined space. The tealeaves in the bags will not only absorb the bad
smell but also will release the natural aroma of tea.
9. Orange and ClovesGet
an orange and poke it with sharp objects like needle or fork to form
small holes. Place each of the cloves inside these small holes until
most of the orange surfaces are covered. It may look like a hedgehog
with the cloves jutting out of the orange fruit. Leave it in the
confined area for a couple of days. The area will smell nice with the
10. Old Newspaper and Slices of BreadOld
newspaper and slices of bread also work wonders in absorbing the bad
odours particularly inside the refrigerator. Just place some crumpled
old newspaper and two slices of bread (uncovered) inside your
refrigerator and leave them for two days. Replace them (especially the
bread) regularly until the bad smell is removed.
You can also use
the combination of any of the above tips together, to effectively
remove bad smell. Try those tips and you will say goodbye to bad smells
Goodluck, Please don't forget to rate the solution.
Many face the problem of bad odor in refrigerators. Here are few simple tricks to get the problem of bad odor solved:
Keep an open box of baking soda inside the fridge it will absorb the foul smell.
Place newspaper made into balls all over your fridge and freezer so that it is completely covered.Spray the newspaper with water until it is completely wet.
Allow the fridge to run as normal for five days. During this time, the combination of evaporating water and paper will soak up the nasty smell. It should be noted that you will have to turn your freezer to the lowest setting to avoid getting frozen.
Buy some freshly ground coffee.Dump 1 to 2 cups of the coffee grounds on a large plate and spread them around. Use multiple plates if the smells are extreme.Place the plate on the center shelf.Close the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours.Dispose of the coffee grounds.
Cut a lemon in half and put it in there - it will absorb the smells and make it clean smelling.
Last but not least ....Empty contents of fridge wipe out with warm water and a little lemon juice then cover a tray or plate with kitchen foil and fill with charcoal put in fridge over night and the charcoal absorb es all nasty ouders then in morning remove plate or tray.It should have no smells at all.
Thank you for this opportunity t post few tips which i know. I think all the above are home made tips and anyone can try it out who are facing the problem of bad odor in their refrigerator..
if the ice has been in the freezer ice bin for a couple of weeks or if you added any food to the freezer that is not totaly frozen before adding then the ice will absorbe the odor of the food added, also the defrost of the evaperator will also add to bad ice taste
a new filter for the ice maker is maybe needed, depending on how long it has been since it was changed
if it has been changed, youcan try this whirlpool tip
put a small pie pan in the freezer and one in the fresh food section
add 1/2 inch of fresh coffee not coffee grounds to each pan
leave in for 24 hrs
dump out coffee in the sink drain

yes on the coffee grounds and keep it long as it works as freon has a life of about 120 years if the sealed system don't leak also just start the freezer and the freezing air will kill the bacteria that causes oder in a little while also frigidaire makes a product made from coconut charcoal called fridge aid you can get at any home appliance or improvement stores
Try putting an open can or two of coffee inside. My mother's freezer had gotten unpluged and it was full of fish. She put cans of coffee inside and shut the door a couple of days later she took them out and the freezer did not stink anymore.
Hope it works for you.
