I have a strong chemical smell in both the freezer and refrigerator sides of by Whirlpool Gold side-by-side. It is about 1 and 1/2 years old and the smell just started. It is cooling just fine and it is not rotten food. It is definitely a chmical smell! Any ideas what this could be? Or what should be done to fix it?

Hi,

Not much in a refrigerator that will give off an odour, even the refirgerant gas for the most part is odourless.

Something that may help...

Has the hot condensor coils under the refrigerator been cleaned?

Hi Denise,

Did you ever get an answer to the reason your refrigerator had a chemical smell? I've now had 2 ***** refrigerators and both have eventually had that smell. My refrigerator has it now. We never did find out what it was.....did you ever find out?

Thanks!
