You may wish to check that the drain is working. Then after rinsing out the drain pan with a mixture of 10% bleach to 90% water, pick up a pack of Air Conditioner Sanitizer found at local hardware outlets and rinse it thru the drain pan.

The only thing that I can think of that could produce a urine/ammonia smell is a shorted capacitor that is leaking. But normally when that happens the dryer motor will not start.

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.

Bad smell on dried dishes after being washed.Stale water smell.


Try Running Goo Gone Through It Although It Smells Like Oranges It Removes Stains As Strong As Sap. Also Try Running The Dry Cycle While Its Empty Two Or Three Times.

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?

Removing urine stains from mattress


Go to your local Pet Store! They have a remover called "Simple Solution." I have used it a lot!! It works for about every stain there is!! It's about $8 for a 32 oz. bottle. Worth every penny! I use it on my carpet...just pour some on like you were pouring a glass of water on it...let it set for a little bit..viola! Hope it works! It does for me!!
