This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning unit, it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com judging from the smell you are encountering, the device could already be malfunctioning

You should be able to remove the base grill by opening both doors to 90 degrees and pushing down while pulling outwards on the base grill to unlock the top clips, once the top is away roll the base grill toward you and up. From there you should be able to see the pan underneath which should slide out.

Clean it thoroughly and use a mixture of baking soda and water for final cleaning rinse and replace, I also mix some baking soda and water and pour in the bottom of the fridge to allow the mixture to cleanse the drip tube leading to the pan.

Installation is in reverse of removal

There is drip tray underneath the unit. Depending on model, there are multiple ways to access. This tray needs cleaning regularly. Once clean, sprinkle in Baking Soda to keep odors down. Cleeaning this on a regular basis is the only way to beat this smell.

Bad Smell


you might ry removeing hte rear panel of freezer. gain access to the evapotator area, thats where the fan thatcirculates air is as well, if the smells stillback there washing the inside wont do anything. once fully exposed i would saturate area with an odor nuetralizer . I use odo-ban. and be sure to pour asolution of baking soda and water downt the drain assy (under the evaperator) that will allow the baking soda to reamin in the lower drip tray long after teh eater evaporates. once refrig gets vcold again the smells generrally disapate anyway

Smell from under the side by side.


mix a solution of baking soda and water, open freezer section and right at bottom fofreezer back wall you seee vents cut in plate, they lead to draintube and eventually to drain pan(which in most new models is not removable) pour the solution down the drain(maybe a cup or so), the waterwill evaporate and the baking soda will remain absorbing odors
