Question about Refrigerators
I have an Electrolux bottom mount EBM4300SCR refrigerator. It is just over 1 week old. From the time I first opened the packaging, the fridge has a strong offensive odour. I have tried baking soda (in the fridge, several batches on a saucer, changing it each day) but still the smell persists. It is not a food smell but the smell must have origined in the manufacturing process. Can anyone suggest what it may be and how long it may take to disappear?

Hi, i have the same problem with my Homeking fridge. Because it is a frost free firdge, there is a little resevoir at the back, with a small little tube leading from the base of the fridge into it. There are 2 screws holding it in place. Unscrew these but keep the resevoir firmly in place as the nasty parmesan-type smell is actually stagnant water and you really really dont want to spill it. Empty it and then what i did was bleach and anitbacterialise the resevoir tray and the little tube thing. Though I had the problem solved but now it is doing it again less than 2 months after this, so I'm going to contact the people who sold it to me. This is how you get rid of the smell though!!
