  • Baking soda. Make sure there isn't any expired meat or frostbitten veggies, and put a box in there.

  • Clean it out really good with soap and hot water. First go through the food in your freezer and frig to see what turned rotten!!!

  • yup baking soda. I would also clean out my freezer too and see if I can see anything and get rid of what looks bad.

  • Clean out your fridge and freezer. Wash down with soap and water. Then put some baking soda in there. Good luck.

  • Try cleaning out all the food and what not with Bleach.
    Then throw away all the roten foods.
    then use some baking soda if you can.

  • Does it smell like rotting food or does it smell more like a chemical? If you have a crack or some damage to it maybe it is leaking coolant.

  • Defrost the freezer, it may have picked up an odor from rotten food. After that, keep an open box of baking soda in there.
