I have a Whirlpool refrigerator and it's blowing a nasty smell from the bottom of my fridge. Anyone have any ideas?
I would clean out the drip pan if I were you.
It is recommended to routinely clean under the refrigerator, removing any dirt or items that may have gotten trapped under the refrigerator.
The smell is most likely coming from your drip pan but it would probably be a good idea to clean behind and under your refrigerator.
Your refrigerator most likely has wheels and can safely be pulled forward as over time the coils do trap a lot of dust and dust can make your refrigerator run more than it should (less efficient).
Just be sure to watch where your electric cord is plugged into the wall.

My refrigerator has a bad odor coming from the bottom drip pan. The pan is not removable. With my old refrigerator to clean the odor I would put baking powder all over the pan and the odor would be gone. How do I eliminate the odor if the pan is not removable? Thanks.

Mine was from a dead mouse! I hope yours isn't.

Im wondering the same thing except looking under there I cannot see where a mouse might be. My cats are showing more interest as well. Ughhhh.
Yucky smell !

Our new Frigidaire fridge has lost all coldness in the freezer. The tech said it was the evaporator and ordered the part.
