Sorry that has happened to you. The only way to get the smell out is to clean all of the inside sections of the freezer and fresh food section with a good cleaner and warm water. Unplug and remove the rear panel in back of freezer and wash the evaporator coils with warm water and Clorox solution. When done in that way the solution goes down the defrost condensate drain to the pan below the refrigerator and it also disinfects the smell that has accumulated from inside the refrigerator and freezer and ends up being returned into the air inside your home from the condensate collection pan that uses the heat from compressor and fan to replace the moisture inside you home. Thanks, Good Luck, It Works! Sea Breeze

Testimonial: "Thank you, drain is clogged. Problem solved."
Have you had a chance to locate the location the water inside freezer? There are many reasons for this to happen I just can not say it would be a defrost condensate drain blockage. Most times it is. Every 8 to 10 hours your freezer defrost and the water is surposed to follow a pipe or drain through the refrigerator to a pan below refrigerator where the warm air from condenser evaporates the water back to the air inside your home. That drain line sometimes slowly becomes blocked and then the drain hole becomes clogged with ice. Once that happens the drain needs to be cleared. I will try to help you solve this so for now I need you to see if water looks as if it came from rear of freezer. Placing photos on Flickr would be great! So tell me where you see it and yes we may need to pull a few things out. This is nothing a few towels, hair dryer hot water and Clorox and a wet vacuum cannot handle. Sea Breeze

You should be able to see where the drain tube comes out over the drain pan. Get some thin wire and run it down the tube and when it comes out in the drain pain, tie something onto it like a small piece of cloth and pull it back up through the drain tube to swab it out. The tape is no big issue, if you want to do something about the rust, there is a product that autoparts stores sell that turns rust into a hard, rigid metal. Or you can use a blow drier to make sure it is dried out and then spray rubber under coating on it.
