My side by side refrigerator exhaust at the bottom of the fridge is expelling an odour. Is there a solution and is it a health risk


i guess if the odour is bad is not good . generaly caused by bact or who knows what . but let me say this / most smells that come from under frig are the water in the evap pan . and should be removed and cleaned several times a year . other are mice in insulation and sometimes the fan get's them . so slid it out and clean it out / it will run better when cleaned . the coiles do get dirty and the fans slow down .. hope this helped **** ..

The fridge is producing a bad odour from some


The odor is coming from the defrost liquid Throw it away and clean the interior of the refrigerator with detergent and remove moisture. Dry it by opening the door for about 3 or 4 hours and then set the
temperature control button at strong.

Refrigerator temperature can't be set to cold - sensor light shows 9C and keeps on beeping. Samsung model RB1855SL


I had this exact problem with my 4 yr old Samsung RB1855SL refrigerator. BTW, the temperature display doesn’t display higher than 9C, even when its warmer inside. The fan wasn’t turning on to circulate the cold air, although the cooling coils were still cooling. There was no excess ice build-up. The freezer was working fine.

I thought perhaps the fan was toast or the temperature sensor. Then I noticed the interior fridge light was not turning off when closing the door (but the freezer light was). BINGO—thig light switch was the problem. A small piece on the inside of the fridge side of the switch was broken. When the door was closed, the broken switch didn’t let the fridge know that the door was in fact closed, causing the door alarm to keep beeping. This must shut the fan down in order to save energy when regularly opening the door.

DIY fix: I removed the switch (until I could get a replacement) which is located to the left of the lower door hinge (right hand side). Gently, with a flat nose screw driver, I pried it out.

The light no longer turned on when opening either door but that was a small price to pay compared to the incessant beeping and rotten food. The part can’t be very expensive and I can replace it myself. The local appliance repair shop will order it for me.

No expensive “internal brain” needed to be replaced or an expensive repairman needed to be called. Good luck!

Fan blows out a smell from underneath fridge could it be leaking gas.


call the repairman back and say forget it ,on the motor youll see a flat pan ,like a cookie sheet on top ,the excess water from the freezer drains into a tube and into that pan as the motor gets hot it evaporates the water,just clean the pan,shut down fridge,unplug and let motor cool,clean the pan and tell hubby not to waste good beer lol

Fan blows out a smell from underneath fridge could it be leaking gas.


Hi,
I have the same problem with the odor. I took the back off and discovered the drip pan was full of stagnant dirty water. This place is bacteria heaven. The problem I have now is that i cant seem to find a way to remove the pan without taking the motor out and everything. Any suggestions?
