Question and Answers

Q:

Why is my refrigerator emitting a terrible smell?

A:

If the smell is coming from outside the refrigerator, you could have a dead rodent in the compressor or drip pan area. To check this area, unplug the refrigerator and pull the rear bottom service panel off of the outside of the unit. This should give to access to the compressor and defrost drip pan. Check this area carefully. Check the defrost drip pan for any foreign matter that could be smelling bad.

If the smell is coming from inside the refrigerator and/or freezer compartments, follow these odor removal tips:

  • To remove strong odors, place some shallow trays of the following items on the shelves inside your refrigerator:
    • Activated charcoal (can be obtained from pet supply store, usually used in aquarium filters)
    • Fresh, unused coffee grounds (this will leave a coffee smell that will eventually dissipate over time)
    • Baking soda
  • Once most of the strong odor is removed, you may need to keep a small bowl of the deodorizer in the back of one of your refrigerator shelves
  • Also, throw out your ice in your storage bucket below the automatic ice maker once the strong odor is removed -- ice cubes will absorb and retain the refrigerator odor
  • Constantly keeping an open box of baking soda in the refrigerator will minimize odors
  • Keep foods that are stored in the refrigerator and freezer properly wrapped and sealed to that they are air tight to prevent food odors from building up in these compartments
If the odor is so strong that the above methods do not help, you may need to take more aggressive steps to remove the odor. This would involve removing all of the food in the refrigerator and freezer. Prepare more trays of a deodorizing agent listed above. Turn the refrigerator off and place the trays in the refrigerator for a couple of days or until the odor is gone.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Q:

My new Kenmore refrigerator has an in-door ice caddy. How do I keep it from freezing to the door?

A:

If you are taking the ice bucket out of the freezer and setting it somewhere the cold temperature of the outside of the bucket will cause it to sweat. When you put it back inside the freezer the moisture on the outside of the bucket will cause it to freeze to the mount.

Whenever you take the ice bucket out you should dry the outside surfaces with a clean towel. This will prevent the sticking.

I don't know an easy way to get the bucket loose. Dry it good and you won't have the freezing problem.
