Is there a smell of food when refrigerator door opens?





If food is stored without sealing, food odor gets mixed with air inside refrigerator risking

causing some rather funky odor.

Fish smell in particular is quite difficult to remove.





Clean the refrigerator inside with rubbing alcohol.

After it has been cleaned, set the product at stronger cooling power. 

Use sealed containers to store food.



[Additional methods to remove odor]

1.    Clean inside with warm wet towel.

2.    Place an opened box of baking soda inside refrigerator

3.    Mix baking soda (2 tbsp.) to warm water (1 qt.) and clean inside with towel.

4.    Place powered coffee in the refrigerator.
