Strong chemical smell in fridge - Kolpak (SK8-1328-CI) Commercial Refrigerator


... Kolpak (SK8-1328-CI) Commercial Refrigerator

For days now I have had this extremely strong chemical smell emitting from behind the fridge. I finally found the source after days of looking for ground zero. The smell has grown over last 2-3 days. The smell has so potent now that it gives a bad headaches when I spend too much time her in my own house. Is this smell hazardous? The fridge is working well, cold both fridge and freezer. Never warm nor hot. The smell is becoming suffocating in the kitchen and dining area.

I just moved into a house 10 days ago. I don't know how old the appliances in the kitchen are, but I would guess +/-20 years. There is a very strong solvent-like (sort of like lighter fluid) smell whenever I open the freezer section of the Kenmore refrigerator. I can also smell it in the refrigerator, but not as strongly. It still seems to be cooling okay. Any ideas on what might be happening? Should I call a repair person or shop for a new fridge?


I would shut down the refrigerator and give it a good clean out with soap n water, if it is cooling ok i suspect the previous owners cleaned it with an abrasive cleaner like oven cleaner. Freon really does not smell that bad...maybe a little like pro ... Refrigerators

About 5 days ago I noticed a strong chemical smell (like open permanent markers or nail polish remover) in my kitchen. The smell permiates the whole house, but is strongest in the kitchen area when I close off that area. The refrigerator and freezer still worked and the smell is not inside. I could not find any other source of smell. I have since moved the refrigerator out of the main house and the smell still exists in the kitchen. Could it be that if the coolant leaked onto the floor it has be


No. The coolant cannot leak as a liquid and soak into the floor. Also, the smell of the coolant (refrigerant) does not have the acetone/ketone/laquer thinner smell that you are describing, and if someway the smell originated from the frig, the smell ...

Refrigerator Smell I have had a very strong "chemical-like" smell in my refrigerator/freezer for over a month now. The refrigerator is about 14 years old and still runs nice and cold. The smell seemed to come on suddenly. I have cleaned it, used baking soda, and had a repairman come. (He changed a minor part which he said was "burnt"). Nothing has worked. The smell gets in all my food and ice. Help!
