Odor Coming From Appliance


Possible Cause What to Do
Initial ‘new’ smell from manufacturing This is normal and will disappear once the compartment is in operation.
Strong smelling food that has not been covered or contained
  • Cover all strong smelling and odorous foods carefully with food wrap or place food into sealed containers.
  • Wipe compartment out with a mix of water and vanilla essence to reduce residual odor.  
Expired food Clear out old food from compartment. If in doubt, throw it out.
Spills If a spill has escaped from large bottom tray and into the compartment, mop up as much of the spill as you can. If odor persists, you will need a Service Technician to assist - Click Here to schedule a visit.
