There is a drain collection pan under the left side behind the toe plate. Remove the drain tray and clean it.

Refrigerator smells horrible , but there is NOTHING spoiled in it.


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!

My refrigerator is one year old. There is a bad


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} You may have had something drip and somehow get under the fridge. I know blood dripping from meat will smell. It could have dripped down through the defrost drain tube to the pan underneath. You can access the pan from the rear by removing the cardboard cover. If the smell seems to be coming from the pan, it's difficult to remove so I would just pour some bleach in it to kill any smell and you may can wipe it out from there. The drain tube may also have the smell in it so you can pour some bleach into it from the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear panel. You can move the fridge to see if anything is pooled on the floor that might smell.

Odor coming from back of fridge


This is very unusual, most of the time when I get complaints about odor it's form the inside of the cabinet. This should be easy enough to solve though. The odor is likely from dust accumulated underneath, or from something in the drain pan. If the unit has visible fiberglass insulation underneath you should replace it with new because, even if the source of the odor has been removed, the insulation can still contain it.
Unplug the refrigerator, take off the kick plate and rear cover. Clean and vacuum the entire under- carriage, condenser, fan, and condensation evaporator tray.
Be gentle with the components though, especially the capillary tube ( a pipe about the size of a 14 gauge copper wire )

My refrigerator smells like urine


The smell is coming from the back of my refrigerator and it has been noticeable for about a month. It is the worst when the motor is running. The inside is fine; no smell. Any ideas?

BAD SMELL COMING FROM UNDER MY WHIRLPOOL SIDE BY SIDE FRIDGE. I SMELL IT WHEN THE FAN BLOWS. IT SMELLS LIKE URINE.


check its not the drained ice water which collects on a pan over the compressor. the compressor heat is supposed to evaporate it .that foul smell might be due to that.
if that is the case ,switch off fridge , clean , dry , the pan & see .
