Hey Everyone,

Hope to catch you all well, here we go....I've got a Norcold Fridge/Freezer that stinks rather badly, sort of a rotten meat smell.

We have cleaned and scrubbed it numerous times but the smell is still there.

Any sugestions please?

Thanks in advance
Best Regards,

Mark & Sue:pray:

Hi wash it out with bicarbonate of soda, that does the trick.:thumb: And when not in use leave the door ajar.

Thanks Wildman, got Sue on her hands and knees right now giving it a go! I'll post the results.

Best Regards,

Mark & Sue :thumb:

hi mark and sue,

can be real problem once the smell permeates the plastic liner of the fridge.
scrubbing doesnt usually work.
try washing it out with lemon juice.....fresh, not the jiffy stuff...too sticky.
dont know if it has any but check any drain holes for blockages.

then stand a bowl of boiling water and lemon juice in it overnight with the door shut.
next day give it a wash out with water to remove the lemon juice and dry it completely.


sounds like its been turned off and the door kept shut rather than in the storage position.

i've had a broken larder fridge in the garage for a month or two......opened the door and nearly chucked up......god did it stink.:Eeek:

this works a treat for smelly microwaves so it should work for fridges as well........nowt to lose and a nice smelling fridge to boot and dont forget to leave the door open when not in use.

Have you checked the drip pot inside the vent at the rear of the fridge?

Water goes down a tube that drains the narrow trough on the back wall inside the fridge. It drains into a small alluminimum cup that may also harbour smellys. :Eeek:

We had an RV with a Norcold, and I found the tube had been crimped near the end and really niffed when I cleared it out, so I used to check it on a regular basis. ::bigsmile:
