Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Odours from fridge

Had fish in fridge for one day defrosting it. The fridge started to smell so we thoroughly cleaned and defrosted fridge and freezer. the fridge still smells especially when the blowing air comes out of the fridge. We think the smell is in the air system or what ever cools the fridge because we can't get rid of the smell.

The air itself blowing out of the fridge freezer smells like fish


These are no fun to clean. There is something in the defrost tray that is smelling. You need to post the make and model number and then get ready to unload the unit and take off the cover to get to the evaporator coils and clean them and the drain and tray.

Why does my refrigerator smell so bad?


PUT A BOX OF BAKING SODA IN REFRIGE AND 1 INTO FREEZER ALSO. BUT TAKE EVERYTHING OUT, MAKE SURE NOTHING SPILLED AND IS UNDER A DRAW ROTTING. IF ALL IS CLEAN INSIDE, PULL OUT REFRIDGE IN BOTTOM BACK IS AN EVAPORATOR PAN FOR CONDENSATION, SOMETIMES SOMETHING CRAWLS UP INSIDE GETS TRAPPED AND DIES.

During holydays, due to an interruption in the power service, the food of the freezer department defrosted, and now there is bad odour in the fridge. I cleaned it, but the odour did not disappear. What...


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. If you are using it and need to keep using it buy about 4 boxes of arm and hammer baking soda and cut the top off. Place 3 in fresh food compartment and one in the freezer. It takes time but it does eventually pull out that odor. However... you need to look under the refrigerator at the water catch basin plastic tray. Often liquids from a defrosted refrigerator drain into the pan down there and dry out. Then everytime the unit auto defrosts (2 - 3 times a day that) bad odor is noticed again because the water produced from defrosting liquifies the material in the plastic tray. You should clean that tray really well and wipe out all of the black goo / gunk. Make sure you look at the very end of the cabinet drain tube also that terminates in that same pan. I have found that using Mr. Muscle mold and mildew cleaner does a really good job of cleaning and removing that foul smell. A trade secret here we use Endust on a dry clean inner cabinet to make them smell good and shine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Unpleasant smell inside


Here's what you do. I know it is going to sound funny but it always works. Wad up a bunch of news papers and place them in the frige along with a stick of dynamite (only kidding about the dynamite) along with a box of baking soda. The newspapers will remove the smell in a couple of days.

Hope this helps

The fridge is producing a bad odour from some


The odor is coming from the defrost liquid Throw it away and clean the interior of the refrigerator with detergent and remove moisture. Dry it by opening the door for about 3 or 4 hours and then set the
temperature control button at strong.

GE side by side refrigerator smells on the outside!


Mix 1/3 cup of bleach and 2/3 cup of water , and pour down drain tube (rear bottom in freezer section . Too much bleach and the smell of bleach would be circulated by the fan to the room , so be sure to add water .

Smell from fridge freezer even after thorough cleaning and disinfecting and defrosting Model Hotpoint RFA52. Temperature control OK


Put Charcole brickets in the refrigerator. Charcole works better than baking soda and usually take care of the smell.

- fridge not working following defrost


There must be a model number on the unit somewhere. Look on the door jambs on the cabinet (not door) side of the open doors.

Most modern day freezers have automatic defrost systems built in. If your does not defrost, then we need to troubleshoot why.

Post your model number, and we can proceed, assuming you or someone you know, knows how to use a multimeter and read a schematic/wiring diagram, with my help.
