Refrigerators make safe food storage a snap, but what is going on when the refrigerator smells like chemicals? A refrigerator prevents food from spoiling through a cooling system that uses a chemical called “Freon”. In its most basic state, Freon is known to emit a strong chemical smell much similar to nail polish.

If your refrigerator smells like chemicals, it is most likely the result of a leak somewhere in the fridge. This is definitely not a do-it-yourself job; if you smell something funky coming from your fridge that isn’t last week’s leftovers, call an experienced kitchen appliance repair service as soon as possible.

The Refrigerator Smells Like Chemicals – Help!

 

If it smells like something crawled in and died in your refrigerator and you have eliminated spoiled food, there is likely a reason behind why the refrigerator smells like chemicals. In refrigerators, a gas called Freon operates within a closed system as a liquid to help the fridge rapidly cool the inside and keep food from going bad. Chemical smells coming from the refrigerator is usually a sign that there is a leak somewhere.

Don’t panic because short-term exposure to small amounts of Freon gas do not cause any adverse health effects, but you will want this issue resolved immediately by a professional kitchen appliance repair service.
