Hey, you're in the appliance zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Refrigerator Category

Problem: 

Refrigerator smells extremely bad even though there is no rotten food inside or around it.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Baking soda

  • Lukewarm water

  • Scrubber

  • Paper towel

  • Dry cloth/rag

Solution:

 

So, you have a kitchen that has all of a sudden taken on a foul smell.  You believe you have generally narrowed it down to the refrigerator, but exactly where?  There is no rotting food in or around the refrigerator that could be the origin of such a stench.  In all likelihood, if there is no rotten food around, the smell comes from the hidden origin of the drip pan tucked underneath the refrigerator.

The refrigerator drip pan may have accumulated foul-smelling water.  While doing whatever you can to avoid the smell--"pinch" your nose if you have to, slip the drip pan out from underneath the refrigerator and dump this foul-smelling water into the toilet followed with an immediate flush or otherwise dump it far away from the house.  Then, quickly wash the drip pan with baking soda mixed with lukewarm water, scrubbing away at it as you find necessary.  With a final, quick water rinse, followed by the drying of it with a paper towel or dry cloth/rag, simply reinsert the drip pan underneath the refrigerator.

So, when your refrigerator reeks and there's no rotting food in sight, immediately think of your drip pan as your foul-smell-setting culprit.
