SOURCE: Bad smell in new Kenmore Elite fridge

Remove the cover grill plate at the bottom front.Just give it a good tug to pull it off.. It is held on by tension clips.. There is were you will find the drain pan..
Not sure if that is where the bad smell is coming from but certainly a good place to check..

If that is not it - put few boxes of Arm & Hammer baking soda in the fridge and freezer..
Give it about 24 to 48 hours..

If that does not work - you may consider contacting the store where you got the fridge for a replacement.. Maybe - just - maybe before it got to your home - a small rodent might have clibmed into it and died..

A new fridge should not have these oderes..

SOURCE: A really bad smell coming from the fridge

I had a similar problem with an unbearable smell, not inside, but outside the refregeration compartment. it was from the defrosted liquid that gets stored in a small open tank at the bottom on the rear side of the fridge. over time , particles settle along with water and gives a rooten smell, cleaning this tank solved it.

Hope this helps,

SOURCE: brand new fridge. I have a bad smell like urine

smell is urea,it is a gas produced when plastics get hot,it will go away in time,but also check the drain for a blockage (syringe with clorine bleach)and if fitted, wipe out the condensate pan with clorine
last make sure the door seals fit all round as iif not flush any condensate will drip out from the front bottom.

TOWARDS THE BNACK IN THE REFRIGERATOR THERE ARE DEODERIZERS THAT NEED TO BE TAKEN OUT AND SOAKED IN WATER THEN DRIED OUT IN THE SUN. THEN OPU CAN REPLACE THENM AND THEY SHOULD WORK AGAIN.

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,

I have a homeking fridge freezer and there is a really bad smell coming from the fridge which is not because of food. i have emptied the fridge and thoroughly cleaned the fridge but the smell is still...


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!!
Good luck
