FREON is ODERLESS,TASTELESS, Take some FRESH ground COFFEE spread it on a plate, put 1 in the freezer, 1 in the refer side, leave them there for 3 days, change-out the coffee and leave for 3 more days!!!! The odor WILL be gone!!!

Most of the time, when we get a complaint like this, We find some sort of food that has spoiled, The most common thing that I have found is a spoiled Orange, It may sound wacky, but true!!!! The other factor is, with a Freon leak, the gas would leak out and the unit would stop cooling!!!!

Thumbs up chemical smell

Thank you so much! This sight is wonderful and best of all it just saved me an $85 service call. I would have eventually found the reason for the smell...but after reading a reply in the forum about an "orange giving off the chemical odor" a lightbulb went off in my head! Thank You, Thank You! It has now been removed, washed out and I have coffee grounds in the freezer and refrigerator to help with the smell. I have also heard of kitty liter (but who would want that in there fridge) and crumbled up newspaper to get rid of unwanted odors, for those non coffee drinkers

Default Another odor absorption option

Some also suggest leaving an open box or two of baking soda in the fridge and/or freezer to absorb unpleasant smells.

Smile Awsome

Thank you so much, your post saved me a 95.00 service charge.
I had searched the fridge several times as did my wife, and we didn't find anything that could have been causing the smell. My wife keeps the fridge clean and free of old food, however after reading your post I did another search and found a very old lemon in a ziplock bag behind condiments on a side shelf. I removed it and the smell dissipated almost right away, I opened a fresh box of baking soda and out it in there and smell is now gone after 2 hrs. Thanks again for this.
