Question about Maytag Refrigerators
Hi Franny. Welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
Get yourself 2 boxes of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda... cut off the tops and place them in your refrigerator. In 6 weeks change them out.
Now.... there is reason that it can smell and that is that the catch pan under the unit if full of some nasty goo. Unplug the unit Remove the fiberboard rear cover and use a shop vac to clean out the catch pan. While in in the area clean the condenser coils and fan. You can have a deceased rodent under your refrigerator.
Two other things that I use on an empty and dry refrigerator is Mr. Muscle Mold and Mildew Remover (use gloves) first by spraying it on letting it soak for a few minute then wiping it off AFTER scrubbing with an OLD / well worn Scotch-Brite pad. Then wipe off with a damp cloth.... air dry... spray and wipe with Endust (Major trade secrets there) That is how we recondition used appliances.
All of the above should get rid of the odors.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
