Your problem might be something caught in the water hoses going into your fridge and condensation is freezing around it

Chemical smell in refrigerator


wipe it out with a clorine bleach solution,leave the door ajar to gas off and use a syringe to blow out the drain hole.wipe dry then cover any open topped food containers with cling film.as all fridge/freezers work best when 3/4 full.use empty airtight boxes to fill any spaces,she/he will notice a big difference in lower running costs...
whilst the freezer may be frost free, the fridge is not, so expect condensation to form on any gloss surfaces...(the more airspace the more condensation........)

Pervasive chemical odor


I was just recently having this problem myself (and I'd also encountered it long ago as well). Fortunately, I live in an apt. for the time being, so it was exchanged with another fridge after persistent complaints to the management. However, I did do a little sleuthing before the exchange ... and I did read something online where someone said (and pretty definitively too) that oftentimes "chemical smells" occur as a result of a coolant leak. Despite the fact that I did not physically see a leak, this explanation still made the most sense to me given the character of the smell.

So, your problem, like mine, is more than likely caused by an internal, occult leak. Also, not to worry you, but I would advise you not to consume anything else from your fridge/freezer until this is resolved since your food is being constantly permeated with this noxious gas circulating around it (and yes, even through the containers' small crevices). I ended up pretty much throwing out everything :( I am an RN, BSN by the way - we nurses usually have some pretty sound advice (even when it's bad - sorry).

Fridge has chemical smell


The smells are being pulled in through the air intake from the fridge from the chemicals they used on the floor. As the coating cures, the odor will end. As for the damage to your food and drinks? I would assume if the food tastes like the chemicals, I would avoid eatting them if you do not like the taste )

Probably getting a new Fridge-mother doesn't want to continue to deal with repairs. Thanks anyway.

Ice and Refrigerator and Freezer smell like alcohol chemical


I believe that you might have a coolant leak causing the chemical odor. You really should get it checked out by a fridge repair-person because it's not healthy to breathe in the fumes.
