  • Unpleasant, rotten or strong odour in the refrigerator/fridge freezer

Applies to

  • Refrigerator
  • Fridge freezer


1. Store strong-smelling foodstuffs in airtight containers.

2. Carefully clean the shelves, door seal and inside with a suitable anti-bacterial disinfectant/cleaning agent.

You can find suitable cleaning and care products in our Webshop.

3. Clean the drip tray situated above the compressor at the rear of the appliance.

4. Keep strong-smelling foodstuffs away from other foodstuffs such as milk, eggs and cheese, which easily absorb odours from other foodstuffs (e.g. lemons, onions, smoked products).

5. If the power supply has been cut off at any point, this may be the cause of the odour and the food will be spoiled.   

Foods that have thawed cannot be refrozen
