I'm having the same problem, and have isolated the source of smell to be inside the deli drawer box... but I cannot figure out how to get the cover off the box. It comes out of fridge, disconnect the wire at back... but cannot open the "container" that the draw fits in.

Very bad smell coming from my Samsung refrigerator


most refrigerators have a small drainage hole leading from the inside rear of the compartment to an overflow container behind the unit, pull the unit away from the wall and check if the liquid in the container has become stagnant, if so simply clean it out and run a small amount of bleach down the hole to disinfect the tube.
hope this helps.

Food rotted in our refridgerator and the smell is in the seal can the seal be replaced or taken off to clean


should come off if it is not glued. it is secured in a groove or has little knobs that stick in holes, you can tell if you just pull it away a little. wash it with bleach/water really good, along with the fridge interior. the odor will go away!

Samsung RF267 water tastes terrible. Filters changed twice and not helping


If new plumbing, system is flushing and may cause a bad taste or odd color.Has a food item spoiled?
Make sure that strong smelling food (for example, fish) is wrapped so that it
is airtight.
Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or suspect food. Place foods in airtight containers to prevent the transfer of odors.And also Flush out water hose from tap end to freezer with warm water And also clean fridge with wet cloth (with soap solution). And then clean with dry cloth. .Keep fridge door open after cleaning all compartments for 4hrs minimum, as fresh air could wipe out any bad odor in fridge. And then start using fridge. Hope, it's helpful.

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.

it could be an air flow problem. Pull the unit out, unplug it. Clean out any dust, dirt, or anything else you see in there. Also when you push it back in make sure you have a few inches clearance behind and to each side of unit . Good Luck.

Ice and Refrigerator and Freezer smell like alcohol chemical


I believe that you might have a coolant leak causing the chemical odor. You really should get it checked out by a fridge repair-person because it's not healthy to breathe in the fumes.

Odor that smells like gas going from the refrigerator


Mold and mildew can cause problems like this. It is even possible that a small animal may have invaded your home and gotten into the box somehow. Cleaning the inside of the box with a dilute bleach solution may help. For continuing odor absorption, place an open container, say a 1/4 cup, of baking soda (bicarbonate of soda) in the compartment. Change as often as once a week. The powder will absorb the odor.

Bad odor in freezer


the only source for odor in a refrig is from food. check to be sure that nothing has gone bad in the refrig section as well as air circulates back from the fresh food section as well as the freezer. if you stil cant find odor source try charcoal or unscented kitty litter in a small container to help remove bad odors..
