Default stinky fridge

Something spoiled in the Fridge, we have cleaned it out but still have the
terrible taste and smell also in the ice. We have used baking soda but the
thing still stinks. Any ideas on how to get rid of the smell and in the ice?
Thanks,Gary

check the drip pan under the fridge. it may have blood in it or some
other foriegn matter. once the liquid goes in the pan it is heated so
that it will evaporate. if its blood it will stink terribly.

Unplug the fridge. Sponge the entire interior with full-strength
vinegar, then again use a baking soda wash. Use an old toothbrush to
get into all the crevices. Rinse and dry throughly. Throw out the
first bin of ice.
