Meat thawed in our Dometic model 2652 RV freezer. The refrigerator part does not smell but the freezer still does. I think meat juice went into in sulation under bottom panel in freezer. Help!


I have had some success with first spraying the unit down with a solution of baking soda and water, and then letting it dry. But we have also had some success with a product called Advanage when we mixed it 5 to 1. It can be ordered from www.advanagedp.com NOTE: The cirtus works better than the apple for getting rid of the odors.

Some sort of irratating smell comes out of lg frige pls give suggestions


Hi Kalpana_bhar,

Seems like your refrigerator has an unpleasant odor. There are several ways on how to remove irritating smell out of your machine, first thing is to remove spoiled food and then clean the door seals. Here are some steps that you can apply to get rid of unpleasant odor.

Remember you safety, please unplug your machine or disconnect the unit from the power outlet before conducting any repair.

1. Remove spoiled food.

2. Then clean the refrigerator interior with a solution of hot water and baking soda.

3. You also need to check the door seals.
--> please clean the door seals with a toothbrush and solution of warm water and baking soda or you may use water and bleach. Please be careful not to pull too hard so you will not tear the seal.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The fridge and freezer smell like a dead animal. cleaned the inside with bleach but still smells for weeks. model w10212088


There are two reasons for bad smells. 1. Long time not being used. 2. Lack of cleaning inside compartment.

Solution: Unplug fridge. Keep open fridge door. Dip a dry cloth in soap water and start cleaning each and every compartment. Keep freezer door also open. And then clean with another dry cloth. Keep both doors open for nearly 5 hrs. It will be enable fresh air to **** the smell inside fridge.
After 5 hrs close the fridge and run on empty for one hour. Keep food items after one hour. Please keep all food items closed vessel. Not only it's avoid odor but also be hygienic.
If you use to keep fish items in freezer, clean fridge once in a week.(Spray roo spray in the room when you keep fridge door opened. Don't spray into fridge.)Helpful.

Freezer door not fully closed, for 24 hrs, now unit won't get cold


Depending on your local environment and the temperature where you live, if the door was open for that length of time, the freezer will probably take another 24 hours to recover and reach its operating temperature.

If the freezer was full, it might even take longer. If there were meat products in the freezer that thawed out, they may have spoiled, so be aware of that. Sometimes, some meat products can be cooked right away so they aren't wasted. All other products in the freezer should also be checked.

A smell is coming from the ice dispenser. I need to open it.


Unlikely area for the smell to come from since with the unit off, there is no action in this area. Most likely cause of your smell: Residue in drain pan of freezer evap area. Remove panel in back of freezer section while unit is unplugged and clean drain and surrounding areas. Use a high concentration of bleach water and let unit air out completely after this. At some point in time, meat or related substance in your ref/freezer leaked and odor is caused by this as the unit was thawed. Use the product ICE AIDE, available at sears or by an A&E tech to continue to freshen your unit for 6 months. IF meat or some sort of undesirable juice dripped into the ice or door water dispenser, you can take this apart and clean as needed following your parts breakdown at www.searspartsdirect.com after you enter your model number off of the appliance. Make sure you work with an unpowered appliance.

Our Kenmore Coldspot has an awful odor whenever you open the door


use straight bleach on it. sponge down the whole inside with bleach and if you can leave the doors open on it to let it breathe and clear the odor out. bleach kills most smells if left on for awhile.go over it a couple of times if you have to to get rid of the smell.
