Sounds like the refrigerant is leaking into the inside of the refrigerator. I would suggest not leaving it plugged in and take it to an appliance repair shop, or get rid of it. This refrigerant is harmful to breath and is not good for the atmosphere.

How do I remove a chemical smell from my freezer and refrigerator?


From my experience smell from freezer is available to remove with lemon water (1 lemon juice + 1 liter water). wipe with a soft rag. Perfectly if freezer is not plugged to 220V power and doors are open 1-3 days.

Sears Kenmore refrigerator odor in freezer?


A quick phone call to Sears or a local appliance service center may be in order. Since the evaporator that cools everything is located inside or very near the back of the freezer and the freezer has the lowest air circulation of the entire refrigerator, I would suspect a small refrigerant leak. Many refrigerants have strong odorizing chemicals added for just this purpose. Natural gas for heating has these same chemicals to warn us of the danger if a leak occurs. If it is a leak it's not dangerous, but very soon you will come home to a warm fridge and thawed food. Prior to that you'll hear the fridge running constantly as it tries to maintain the proper temp.

2004 Taurus has strong chemical smell


The tank is loosing coolant because there is a leak somewhere in the cooling system. I would have the system pressure tested to verify there is a leak. Sense there is a odor in the car and the coolant is low ..I would suspect the heater core is leaking. A pressure test will help locate the leak in the system.

Odor in my home


There may be mildew on the condensor (the big radiator inside the attic) and/or the water drip tray underneath it may not be fully draining causing the odor.
Your senses get "used" to the odor. Your brain will mask it so that you will be able to sense other odors.

Replace the return air filter more often. clean the airway taht the filter covers. Spray Lysol will help temporarily.
You must check the condensor & water drip pan.

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.
