Question about Amana Refrigerators
Check the plastic drainage tray atop the coils at the bottom underneath. You probably will find a smelly stew waiting to be drained into the sink. Follow up by scrubbing the tray clean.

Is the problem more in the freezer than the fridge section. If it is it is possible that on a defrost cycle the heaters which warm the coil may have warped and ar heating something they shouldnt. Another possibility is if there is something in the condensate tray (where the water collects) or something touching the compressor which runs very hot, or even the compressor relay if it is a 'plastic' smell. Smells are notoriously bad things to trace as engineers normally turn up when the smell is either gone or so faint as to not to detect. All I can suggest is trying to narrow the search area as much as you can and hopefully youll find it. Hope this is of some help.

I may have found the problem. I pulled out the Fridge again. The odor was in the water pan.
What I found was that the cooling grills in the front was caked with dust. I vacumed this area but it was not until I got down with a flash light and saw this issue. I took a small duster that uses static to pull the dust out. There was a lot. I will see if the smell starts up again.

Unplug fridge. Remove the panel on the back of the fridge look for dead rodents or fungal growth in the drain pan. consult your local appliance parts distributor for a product called kleene air or try www.reliableparts.com
