Default Microwave has a foul odor inside & is leaking fluid
Model Number: MW8777W   Brand: -other-   Age: 5 - 10 years

My son recently purchased an EMERSON MW8777W microwave from a local thrift store. Everything works great and it heats right and all. There is a nasty smell inside (smells like either/or mustard or fish). When he brought it over here, I used a 1 quart sized bowl and added a small amount of vinegar and then a small amount of baking soda with approx 2 cups of water. I placed these in the microwave and then set the timer for 1 1/2 minute intervals every 2 or 3 hours during the day and early evening. I let it sit inside to let the steam hopefully help the bad odor. This morning, it smells just as bad and there is brown liquid underneath the unit (possibly just from the steam escaping, as it had leaked right underneath the microwave door).
Any suggestions? Thanks!
