Refrigerator odor is one of the most undesirable things in any home. Nobody wants to open the refrigerator and face some bad smells. Bad odor can come from many sources, spoiled food, dirty drain pan, and dirty storage treys are the most common.

Removing odor from the refrigerator can be difficult. However, there are some easy methods that you can use to get rid of bad smell from your refrigerator. We think that if you take the following steps, you will be able to get rid of bad odor from your refrigerator.

  1. 1 Remove spoiled food: Empty the refrigerator and put all your food in an ice chest. Fill the chest with adequate amount of ice cubes to protect the food items. Get rid of rotten food if you find any.
  2. 2 Clean and deodorize removable parts: Unplug the power cord of your refrigerator. Pull out all removable drawers, treys, shelves, and bins from the refrigerator. Insert plug or water stopper in one of your kitchen sinks. Pour hot water in the sink until it is three quarter full. Put half a cup of baking soda in the hot water and mix it using a big spoon. Clean the parts thoroughly one by one and rinse them with warm water. Dry them using paper towels. Use soft scrubbing sponge if you need to remove stubborn dirt. Take appropriate precautions because you are using hot water which may burn your skin
  3. 3Clean inside of the refrigerator: Mix two tablespoons of baking soda in two cups of warm water. Put this mixture in a spray bottle. Spray the inside of your refrigerator with this mixture of warm water and baking soda. Use soft sponge to clean the dirt and food residue. Use warm water and paper towel to rinse and dry the inside of the refrigerator.
  4. 4Clean drain pan: Drain pan is normally located under the refrigerator and near the condenser coil. Sometime it may be located at the back of the refrigerator. Remove the plastic grill, and then pull out the drain pan. Clean the pan by using mixture of baking soda and hot water. Rinse the pan using warm water and then dry it using paper towels.
  5. 5Install the shelves, drawers, drain pan, etc in their proper location.
  6. 6 Use odor absorbing substance: Baking soda and coffee grounds are among some of the best odor absorbing substances. Put some coffee grounds or baking soda in a shallow bowl and put it inside the refrigerator. After few days, you should not smell bad odor from the refrigerator.
  7. 7 Last resort: After following the steps mentioned above, if you still find odor in the refrigerator, there may be hidden dirty liquid inside the body of the refrigerator. Call a qualified appliance repair technician to inspect the insulation system and fix it.
