If the cause of the bad smell is not spoiled food inside your refrigerator, what could be causing it? Find out why there is an unpleasant odor coming from behind your refrigerator.
When it comes to fridge odours, it’s usually because of spoiled food, or leftover food that has settled in the cracks and lingered for a long time. But what can cause unpleasant odours coming from behind the fridge?
Refrigerators have a drainage system located at the back, consisting of a rubber tube, a drain and a reservoir that receives water. This drain can often become clogged, resulting in an unpleasant odor. Clearing the drain and cleaning it should help get rid of the offensive odors. Another reason could be moisture and debris accumulated in the water tank – wash it out every now and then to avoid bad odors coming from behind the refrigerator.
