Frigidaire refridgerator has musty dirt smell odor

We live in a new house and we bought our Fridgidaire Refridgerator 4 yrs okay. It's a side by side Gallery series with the Pure Filter 2 Water Filter system. We noticed a musty dirt smell. We clean our unit out weekly but flabbergasted a to what's causing this smell. WE've never had this problem before out of any of our refridgerator units.

SOURCE: leaking pure source 2 ice and water filter

Hi-

Three things

  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
Hope this help

Thanks for using Fixya!

You should be able to adjust the door hinges very similar to a normal household door. You may have to unscrew the hinge and reinsert. This would definitely involve two people.

If you purchased this machine NEW 6 months ago, everything on it is under warranty. You should contact the selling dealer to verify you are entitled to a free service call. Changing the filter is routine maintenance and in no way should affect the warranty.

I have the same problem with my Kenmore refridgerator


To completely clean a frig of bad smells you will need to remove the back cover of frig and freezer compartment to access all areas. I operated a used appliance store for years and had all manner of stinky refrigerators to deal with so what we did was take out all panels and clean out with bleach and water solution. This took care of most odors. Hope this helps.

Musty smell/taste from water dispenser in refridgerator


The icemaker has mold or mildew in the little nooks and crannies. An appliance parts supplier might have something available for flushing but I am not sure. There might be something in the ice bin or on the auger contaminating the ice and water as well. Check back to the source as the water supply filter may have accumulated something unpleasant while the ice maker was down. Hope this input helps.

Frigidaire the refridgerator is not cold enough. It stays at 60 degrees, I don't know the model because it was torn off inside the fridge and the owner's manual did not come with the house when we bought...


Have one similar and found out the compressor goes out on them about a year and half after purchase. You can buy another compressor but the likely hood of it going out again is likely. Sorry but we bought bad fridges. Never again will I buy a Fridgidaire.
