Question about Amana 18.6 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

There is a strange odor(like honey) coming from the fridge when it runs. There is nothing rancid in the fridge the odor comes out from the perimiter of the fridge when it is running there is no ice maker on this model or cool water spigot also the entire area around the fridge has been cleaned several times including the interior. Is there a water drain or drip pan like the older models I cant seem to locate one as the entire unit seems to be sealed. the odor is not good I am sure it is from the fridge and not our house or the cotents as we have adressed these issue already. Your attention to this matter is appreciated. The fridge is only half a year old. this problem has plagued us from the beginning.the smell is embarrasing when we have company.

SOURCE: I cannot get to the drip pan under refridgerator to empty it. It is filled with sludge and smells bad

Thank willie for helping with one: "Well, it looks like the pan is a seperate plastic pan and not the compressor mounting pan like some of the newer ones are. It appears that you have to remove the condensor fan motor and mounting bracket then maybe the pan will left up and over the compressor, or maybe there is enough room to lift the pan up and out the front over the condensor coils"

SOURCE: Refrigerator Smell

Is the problem more in the freezer than the fridge section. If it is it is possible that on a defrost cycle the heaters which warm the coil may have warped and ar heating something they shouldnt. Another possibility is if there is something in the condensate tray (where the water collects) or something touching the compressor which runs very hot, or even the compressor relay if it is a 'plastic' smell. Smells are notoriously bad things to trace as engineers normally turn up when the smell is either gone or so faint as to not to detect. All I can suggest is trying to narrow the search area as much as you can and hopefully youll find it. Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: amana side-by-side fridge freezer only cold at the bottom

yes the evap fan in the frezer should be running when the compressor is running[it may not for a minute or so as it starts up.Amana's are good for the connectors at the evap fan motor comming apart.the connectors are white and will look like its together but when you pull it will come apart.i would always cut the connector out and use a wire nut so wont happen again.if any other questions please email thru FixYa and i will be glad to help. God bless ,tom

Burning plastic smell when cold out run heater and fan inside car and out


Are you loosing radiator fluid. sometimes the heater core will rupture and you will smell burn odor. also check for strange rubbing sounds or screeching coming from the blower fan motor. or engine exhaust manifolds are hot when car is on, make sure nothing is leaning on them which will cause a burn odor. Any odor coming from outside will find it's way inside through the fresh air vents.

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.

We have a terrible odor from fridge side. Cleaned it 3 times..found nothing and odor persists Any suggestion? No odors when doors are closed


What does it smell like? Burnt plastic , mold , rotten food? Check gaskets and temp in fridge, food could be spoiling. It is tough to get serious odors out of fridges. Bleach, vinegar are good for killing odors. Check manufactures recommendations.

Odor


Could you possibly have a dead rat under there? I know this sounds gross, but they love to hide in the electronics. (Sorry). Anyway, your drip pan may sit on a small bracket type piece that isn't heavy at all. It can sometimes get misplaced, causing the fridge to leak because it's out of place. If you can get a flash light, you should be able to see where it's placed and you should be able to remove and clean it out. I put Mr. Clean in mine when it gets an odor and when water hits it, the solution cleans the odor, but you can clean it and replace it. I hope this helps!
