Has an awful smell even after cleaning frige


Sometimes putting a couple of open boxes of baking soda in the fridge and freezer will help get rid of the smell. You can also scrub the interior with a solution of water and borax. If you can stand the smell of vinegar, cleaning with that will help as well..

We have an older model freezer. The door was left open and we had cleaned up the mess. Now we have a horriable smell around the exterior of the freezer. The interior does not smell. Do all freezers...


Have it clean and use a appliance cleaner that has fragrance to smell it good again.
You must eliminate the source of horrible smell.
Then apply the cleaner on rags, wipe it around the freezer exterior.
Some freezer do have pan and some don't have, so you should look for it carefully.
Good luck.

I have a Kenmore Elite refrigerator model number 59673503201 and there is a terrible fish smell coming from the bottom portion of the appliance where the freezer is. It is not coming from trash, or food...


Please note when you keep fish in freezer once, the smell will be longer even you remove it. O.K. Now solution for your problem- Please unplug power.Keep fridge door open. Take wet cloth dipped in soap water and clean all compartment including freezer . Keep freezer door also opened.Then clean with dry cloth. Spray room spray in your room not into the fridge. And allow 5 hrs to circulate fresh air to pass thr' your fridge and then close fridge and freezer doors. Plug fridge and run for one hour on empty. After one hour store items in fridge and/or freezer.
Keep all food items in closed style which will avoid odor spreading and also be a hygienic. Thanks.

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.

Hi - we had this problem, and it was in fact where some blood from a defrosting pice of meat drained into the compressor condensation tank and began to decay!

I agree the smell is terrible, so a good clean up is needed but this solves the problem immediately!

Kind regards,
