Question about Amana ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Bad smell from motor

I started to smell a fowl ordor coming from the fridge. I cleaned out my fridge and found something leaked down to the bottom. Some of the liquid went in the slots in the back bottom of the fridge. Today the smell is so worse. I pulled out the fridge. The smell is coming from the vent on the bottom where the motor is. Water tubes are connected to the base so I'm afraid to remove the back panel. Is there anything I can do?

Hello,

You need to remove any spoiled food from the refrigerator and clean the interiors with hot water added with baking soda. You need to clean the door seals and remove the breaker strips. Also check for unusual wet insulation.
Hope this work

Freon leak in refrigerator?


no refrigerant leaks have little to no odor and if it was leaking bad enough to smell it the unit would be out of refrigerant and not cooling...the problem sounds like gases coming off of a veggie of something un-covered inside the fridge--have you put any veggies in the fridge or freezer un-covered check real good if one or a piece of something has fallen behind something else where you cannot see...all else fails remove all your products from the unit and clean and get a box of odor control arm&hammer to rid the smell..as for a leak in the sealed system i think your just fine.

My 2 month old Amana Refridgerator with Freezer on


If your sure about spoiled food. Spoiled lemons are one of the worst, and the machine has not been abused, it's a problem of the selling dealer. Fan motors have been known to create an odor when their windings start to burn. Plastic items that become detached from the interior cabinet and wind up laying on the defrost heater which gets very hot during defrost is another, however, I would demand a service call (free) since everything on it is under warranty. Make sure it's creating the odor when the tech shows up.

Terrible odor from bottom front of fridge


The milk probably is gone, but there may be something in your coils. Inspect from front at the bottom, behind toe kick trim or from the back by removeing the access panel on the lower back of the frig. Coil cleaning should be done with the frig unplugged, vacuum out the dust and with a small brush resembling a bottle brush but smaller. clean between the coils. Don't force the brush. Twisting with light pressure will work just fine.
