    there is a thing at the back of the fridge that collects water and thats blocked

    pull out fridge and u will see it - unblock and clean it and smell will go

    we had this problem few years ago and was driving us mad

    you won tlike this....

    where the motor is, on top is where water drains down from the fridge to evaporate, and mice drink water from there, and sometimes die on top....and the heat makes them stink....

    i would pull it out and look at the plastic tray on top of the motor, if all is well, clean all the dust off the condensor tubes as they get hot and that might be the cause of the smell, esp if something dropped down behind the fridge

    Probably coming from the back of the fridge.

    I cleaned my old fridge yesterday.

    It took me ages to get it spotless.

    Is there a dead mouse under it?

    right so i've just had a look. the tray is dirty, but i can't get it off, however when you smell, the smell seams to be coming from the black piping all over the back of the fridge...

    How long have you had the fridge?

    vaccum it off, wipe it down with white vinegar water solution

    the black pipes get hot, and the muckeir they are, the hotter they get

    Our fridge freezer has just started doing this. The smell was awful. I pulled the fridge out and there was a container collecting water at the bottom - the water has turned to gloopy red gel - yuk! Cleaned it out and it's sorted! I will be doing this regularly from now on!!!

    Cheers for all the replies - i had this problem with my fridge freezer today and sure enough it was the water tray containing a nice stinky gunge. All cleaned out, so glad it was not a dead mouse!

    I woke up this morning and my wife was out.

    There was a note stuck to the fridge saying, 'I can't cope, it's clearly not working, I'm going to stay at my mums'.

    I don't know what she is talking about, I just felt the milk and it's cold?
