Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker

1 Answer

Refrigerator Odor There is an odor, not due to anything leaking or bad food. The smells comes out of vents and when anyone opens the door to the fridge I can smell it and the odor has permeated all the food in my fridge. It's only 3 years old and I can't find an appliance repair person to help me. I'm so frustrated, baking soda doesn't work, plus it doesn't solve the problem. Have you ever heard of this or have any suggestions on how to solve? Thanks.

Remove all the food from the unit and clean it with a diluted chlorine bleach solution and let dry and then do it one more time. Also get a box of baking soda and put it in the fridge to absorb odiferous smells odors

Why does refrigerator have odor underneath


Odor from under frig can come from the fresh food drain into the evaporator drip pan or from spillage of food under the refrigerator. If it is a high temperature smell, it can be due to accumulation of lint and dirt on the coils and fan under neath the refrigerator. All refrigerator need a yearly cleaing done underneath the refrigerator, both the floor and the components.
Hope this helps

Freon leak in refrigerator?


no refrigerant leaks have little to no odor and if it was leaking bad enough to smell it the unit would be out of refrigerant and not cooling...the problem sounds like gases coming off of a veggie of something un-covered inside the fridge--have you put any veggies in the fridge or freezer un-covered check real good if one or a piece of something has fallen behind something else where you cannot see...all else fails remove all your products from the unit and clean and get a box of odor control arm&hammer to rid the smell..as for a leak in the sealed system i think your just fine.

We have a terrible odor from fridge side. Cleaned it 3 times..found nothing and odor persists Any suggestion? No odors when doors are closed


What does it smell like? Burnt plastic , mold , rotten food? Check gaskets and temp in fridge, food could be spoiling. It is tough to get serious odors out of fridges. Bleach, vinegar are good for killing odors. Check manufactures recommendations.

Kenmore side-by-side has CHEMICAL SMELL ODOR inside.


You have a freon leak. With this only being 5 years old, iot's probably worth repairing, unless you are just able to buy a new one. I would have a local tech come out and check it before tossing it. I hope this answers your question and gives you some resolution. I hope to work with you again, so please record our name, email and phone number for future needs. Have a great evening!
