  • This is a different smell than I am used to hearing about....You say you have cleaned the fridge and freezer several times. I do not know what was used to clean it with but I would do this.....use bleach on the plastic in the fridge. Try to be sure to get the crisper drawers as well with bleach. It may be strong to start with but the smell of bleach dissipates very quickly. When you get done there is a tray under the fridge that collects water when it goes on defrost cycle(assuming its a self defrosting unit?) I would clean out the tray underneath and if you can get under the fridge by moving it try moping the floor under it with bleach.Ammonia can be used instead of bleach but do not mix them together.
  • When you are all done be sure to have a fresh box of baking soda for the fridge.Open the box and set it in the back on the top shelf, wait 24 to 36 hours and write ma back and lat me know where we stand.
  • I hope this is helpful and please rate me for my answer if you can....thank you and speak with you soon!

Why does my refrigerator smell so bad?


PUT A BOX OF BAKING SODA IN REFRIGE AND 1 INTO FREEZER ALSO. BUT TAKE EVERYTHING OUT, MAKE SURE NOTHING SPILLED AND IS UNDER A DRAW ROTTING. IF ALL IS CLEAN INSIDE, PULL OUT REFRIDGE IN BOTTOM BACK IS AN EVAPORATOR PAN FOR CONDENSATION, SOMETIMES SOMETHING CRAWLS UP INSIDE GETS TRAPPED AND DIES.

Hi, pull out the fridge and remove the back panel, and clean that area. Make sure no food is stuck under the fridge also. A rotten piece of fruit or other food, once under there, will smell until it totally decomposes. You can also mix 1/3 cup of bleach and 2/3 cup of water , and pour down drain tube (rear bottom in freezer section. Too much bleach and the smell of bleach would be circulated by the fan to the room, so be sure to add water. Finally, another popular methods of removing fridge odor include washing the entire fridge out with a vinegar and water solution, placing fresh coffee grinds or boxes of baking soda on each shelf and even using trays of cat litter.

Refrigerator Odor


sounds like fungus in the drain tube
unplug fridge p\and pour some bleach in the freezer
it stinks but it will kill the smell
after 10 min or so take fridge to patio and hose her down water will not hurt the fridge it will however clear the drain lines
and it might be a good time to clean the coils and the colection tray under the back of the fridg any way
