Smelly fridge - drain pan is the issue
Asked Aug 18, 2007, 06:30 PM
I've found the issue that is making my fridge STINK! A large quantity of milk has made it's way into the drian pan. The issue is that the fridge (Kenmore Bottom Mount Model 596.61862101) has a drain pan that is not accessible. I've taken off the back panel and can see the pan but you can't actually remove it to clean it because of the other parts.
See the attached photos for the back view as well as the close up of the drain pan containing the orange mold.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how I can either remove it or clean it in place?
I'm hoping that I can get to it but the smell is so bad that I will have to throw out the fridge if it can't be cleaned.
