I presume you have a house hold fridge if so you could be smelling a freon leak. It is a repulsive smell and you would notice it more during the cooling cycle. Is there any oily film inside or on the back of the fridge if so that is another sign. If you have a Recreational Vehicle it will smell more like ammonia and have yellow residue

A funny smell and i think it might be the temperature


Adjust the knob to 3 or 4 which would be the midway temperature.

0 would probably be off or close to it. The 7 would be coldest and freeze water.

If this is manual defrost you need to turn it off and defrost it. The frost will keep it from getting cold enough. The buildup is normal from humid warm air when opening the door. You might get a standalone fridge / freezer thermometer (about $5) to tell you what temperature is. The smell may be food spoiling from warm temperature.

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell


Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.

Bottom of my fridge is leaking and has a funny smell, all fans are running but fridge is not getting cold enough even the freezer, around the freezer feel really warm?


Does it smell like ammonia. Turn the unit off if it does. Look for yellow powder on the back this would be another sign the cooling unit has leaked. The only solution is to replace the cooling coil.
