Plastic smell back of freezer


Good Afternoon friend, thanks for your post!

From the information you have provided you are receiving a plastic smell inside the back of your Electrolux refrigerator. I can provide some basic troubleshooting steps to help clear out any unwanted odors. You can clean the walls with warm soapy water or warm water with baking soda mixed in. You may also use lemon juice to wipe the interior walls the citric odor can help combat smell. Another thing to use is a pan of kitty litter or a pan of charcoal (not the self-starting kind). I hope this is helpful. -Matt

It has a bad smell coming out of motor area


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that you are having an odor issue with your Frigidaire refrigerator. Usually odors can stem from spills or food within the refrigerator. You can clean the interior with warm soapy water or warm water and baking soda.

Another home remedy is using a pan of charcoal (do not use the one that contains lighter fluid) or kitty litter inside the bottom of the refrigerator and that can help clear out an odors within your refrigerator. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

Hi, pull out the fridge and remove the back panel, and clean that area. Make sure no food is stuck under the fridge also. A rotten piece of fruit or other food, once under there, will smell until it totally decomposes. You can also 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. Finally, another popular methods of removing fridge odor include washing the entire fridge out with a vinegar and water solution, placing fresh coffee grinds or boxes of baking soda on each shelf and even using trays of cat litter.

Foul Odor


Odor from the water softening system can be attributed to several causes.
The best way to see if it is coming from the softener is to by-pass the softener and run the COLD water only for several minutes and see if the smell continues. Now run the HOT water and see if smell is coming from the water heater.
Some causes may be:
1. Hydrogen sulfide in the water supply (the water chemistry can change)
2. Sulfate reducing bacteria. Almost all water supplies have sulfates and if bacteria gets introduced into the plumbing system it acts with the sulfates to create sulfate reducing bacteria. Which creates a rotten egg smell in the water.
3. Salt additives can have many different affects on water chemistry and organics in the water causing musty, fishy, swampy type smells.
4. If you have a system for Tannins using salts with additives will always cause foul smells as it harms the Tannin media.
5. The ANODE rod in the water heater degrades and gives off a sulfur type, rotten egg smell.

Foul odor from back area of fridge/Kenmore bottom freezer


I had the same problem, but just fixed it. I have a maytag bottom freezer and when the fan blower comes on, there was a foul/stale smell that permeated the kitchen. There is no drip pan that I could remove to clean.

I just removed four screws from the back cover of the fan blower area, reached in with a small cup of organic odor remover and poured it into the drip pan just under the fan blower.

Any odor remover would work. probably vinegar or enzyme odor remover would work, too.

I now have fresh smell when the fan blower comes on.
