How long do pork chops last in freezer


They can last as long as a year. Depending on how well they are covered or wrapped. Freezer burn will only affect the taste. Best way to find out if any meat spoiled is to defrost it in your refrigerator and cook it. If the meat is bad, it will start to smell bad once you start cooking it.

I have a spiral ham in my freezer that says use by May 2012. Is it still good to eat?


It should be safe to eat. However, be sure to thaw overnight in fridge and examine for any indication of freezer burn once thawed and make certain it does not smell spoiled.

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.

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.

use a strong solution of clorine bleach(in a spray bottle) to get into every nook and cranny/drainholes/drip trays/door seals and wipe dry(clorine is a gas and will dissipate within an hour or so)then wipe over interior with a damp cloth and plenty of bicarb,leave to dry and leave any bicarb residual inside fridge as this will absorb any smells left.leave door open for about a day in a warm (ish) room, this is the only way of deoderising......

Freezer got unplugged, meat spoiled, freezer cleaned, smell remains. What can we do to get rid of smell?


I have found that the best cleaners for removing left over odors are citrus based cleaners. They help to neutralize odors and prevent re-occurrence. You could also use a diluted bleach as well to sanitize the inside. Make sure it is not too potent or the bleach odor will overcome the bad odor in annoyance.
Good luck!!

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.

Too late, you'll have to get rid of it because the smell has been absorbed into the insulations....and when you bleackh the inside cabinet, the warm food will absorbe the smell again.

Some food is thawing in my chest freezer


these frigidaire made freezers are notorious for having restrictions in the sealed systems that will cause exactly what your describing.

what happens is oil moves around in the freon system and pools up in the capillary tubes and the freon is not able to flow properly. if the unit is under 5 yrs old then should be inwarranty to sears. if its over 5 then probably cheaper to purchase a new one..
