You might have something smelly in the defrost drain pan. The easiest thing to do would be to take the back off the fridge and see if the defrost drain pan smells bad...if so just clean it out with soap and hot water. don't use anything too strong smelling to clean it though, you don't want your fridge to smell like bleach or pine sol.

Good Luck!

Used wrong water filter. Now that we replaced with correct filter, there is a horrible odor in the refrigerator.


Hello Mary;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Putting in the wrong water filter will not effect the smell in your refrigerator. At times the granules in a water filter will break down and get into your water dispenser and ice cube tray. This should not create a bad smell, just cloudy water.

Your plastic liner in your refrigerator has pores and holds odor. You have something in your fresh food section or freezer that is spoiled. Your fresh food section receives cooling air from your freezer. If you have a spoiled product in your freezer you will not smell it because it is frozen. But, as the cooling air goes into your fresh food section and cools down you will smell it.

Find the bad product in your freezer and discard.

With a 50% solution of white vinegar and water wash the plastic liner.

Now you can put a tray of baking soda in your unit, until you purchase deodorizers based on temperature requirements, one especially designed for the freezer section and one for fresh food section. These deodorizer are about $12.00 each.

Try Lowe's and Home depot.

My Maytag refrigerator has a horrible smell when we open the door where it is now smelling even when we do not open door.nothing in frig that is spoiled or spilt.very clean inside .this has happened t


Sure the temperature is in low enough? Sure there is not a dead mouse under or behind the fridge? Or even between food or what looks a closed bag or box? Keep looking what can be causing the smell, We can't help. because we don't have eyes on site

GE tbx25pa has horrible smell. We have cleaned EVERYTHING!! Took back off of inside freezer, removed front grill, cleaned all coils underneath and was nothing in what I'm guessing is the drip pan.


The drain pan under the refrigerator next to the coils you cleaned but you have to access from the back pour some bleach into to get rid of the smell

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.

Smell coming from it


I had the same issue and turned out milk had clogged the back drain plug so I had to take the back off and clean out the tube. Took a few trys and the smell was gone. Now having trouble with ice build up and leaking but this seems unrelated based on other complaints about this fridge
