We had a snowstorm that knocked out the power for 4 days. There was some chicken in the freezer and the juices dripped down through the inside back of the freezer into the drain pan. There is a terrible smell that fills the entire apartment.
The entire fridge/freezer has been completely emptied and cleaned out with a soap and water mix. The smell is coming from the back of the fridge where the coils are and from the bottom where the drain pan is.
The drain pan is non-removable and is sitting on top of the compressor with insulation foam around it.
I mixed a Clorox & water solution and used a turkey baster to squirt it into the drain pan to try to get rid of the smell. The smell is not as strong but it is still there and is unbearable at times.
There is not enough room to fit a sponge in the drain pan so I do not know how to clean it or how to remove the smell. Please help!
