Question about Whirlpool GD2SHGX Refrigerator
New fridge with fishy odour
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?

My son in love, grabbed the pan from the front with a steak knife after spending all day trying to get the pan out other ways. it was the source of the problem. just grab the pan like that.

Take off back. Remove drain tube and clean and put clorox water in the drain pan to kill the mold or fungus. I think I put too much in but sure smells better that the odor.

Hmmmm.... check of course for any little critters that have passed away under there. These things are stored in warehouses and you wouldn't believe what I've found mummified under a frige! The refrigerant gas shouldn't smell if it's leaking out and if it was leaking that bad you wouldn't have any cooling at all when the gas leaked out.

Also check nothing spilled in fridge if it finds its way down drainage hole it will sit in evaporator tray on top of compressor and with the heat grow very smelly bacterial mould growth. not nice! will have to remove fridge and disinfect it or try milton sterilising fluid tipped down defrost hole this will remove bacterial odours.

YOU HAVE A MOLD/FUNGI PLOBLEM . DID YOU HAVE PLOBLEMS WITH ICE MAKER. FROZEN FILL TUBE IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS IF YOU DID YOUR DRIP TRAYED FILLED UP FULL TO MUCH FOR EVAPORATION .CLEAN OUT YOUR DRIP TRAY WITH TURKEY BASTER ADD A CAP OR TWO OF BLEACH .

SOURCE: BAD SMELL COMING FROM UNDER
check its not the drained ice water which collects on a pan over the compressor. the compressor heat is supposed to evaporate it .that foul smell might be due to that.
if that is the case ,switch off fridge , clean , dry , the pan & see .
