My Frigidaire refrigerator has a drain pan that is un remove able and has a bad smell how can I clean.


I appreciate your inquiry, friend!
If you would like to clean any dirt or debris from the drain pain you can use a vacuum attachment to get inside and clean any residue within the drain pan. You can also use warm water and bleach to help disinfect the drain pan prior to vacuuming it out. If that does not help you may want to consult with a professional technician for additional cleaning to be completed within your Frigidaire refrigerator. Best of luck! -Matt

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator 21TFA that may have a drain problem or a clog. It drains in the evening, but this morning when I woke up, it smelled bad from the bottom of the refrigerator. Any advice?


Hi and Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly,
A bad smell from under the refrigerator is a result of either a dead rodent or.. dirt and lint accumulation in the plastic drip pan / catch basin and then the defrost cycle water wets it 2 to 3 times a day intensifying the smell.

Unplug the unit
Remove the rear fiberboard cover that covers the compressor area
Use a shop vac and rags to clean out the drip pan / catch basin. (These can be VERY foul if they have never been cleaned!) Make sure to clean the condenser coils and condenser fan area also. Inspect for varmits / rodents (deceased) with a flashlight. You can wash the drip pan using a rag with vinegar and water then soap and water.
Lastly... make sure the END of the drain tube that terminates in the drip pan is clean. If there was lint build up that caused a muck pool in your drip pan the muck often clogs the end of the drain line.
You never know what your going to find under a refrigerator! I could expound but it is not pleasant and only you will be able to discover the secrets of your refrigerators' "underside life." All I will say is.. it is always a... revealing experience.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Fridge drip tray removal


remove toe kick on bottom of fridge, should be some screws on both sides. tray slides out, maybe not all the way dont force, there is a float mechanism that will stop it from coming out all the way, use some paper towels or rags to soak up the stagnant water, this pan should have a heater hooked up to it to evaporate the water, the installer should have hooked this up on installation, they dont hook it up at the factory to get a better EER out the factory door, just trace back to the pan and hook up any unplugged wires going to it, good luck

There is a sour smell that comes out of the bottom front of my fridge. It is a side by side Frigidaire with an ice maker. It does not smell inside, only the exhaust air and it smells up my kitchen. I have...


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.

Cleaning drip tray.


I have just removed the drip tray from my fridge freezer and it was relatively easy.

Do not remove the compressor unit.

The drip tray is held in place by a metal clasp which is welded to the top of the compressor. The clasp is a flat piece of metal which must physically twisted to align with the key way in the plastic drip tray. I used thin pair of pliers to grip the clasp and twist it clockwise to line up with the tray key way. The tray then has to be carefully manouvred off the compressor so as not to cause damage or spill it foul smelling contents. This I managed to achieve fairly easily.

Clean out and install then twist the clasp to clamp the tray into position. I don't know what would happen if you didnt lock the tray back in position as it does not seem capable of falling off on its own and it would be easier to remove next time.

Hope this makes sense
Mark
