Chemical Smell, Samsung French door, Twin Cool Refrigerator
Same. Strong chemical smell that gets into food, especially butter, eggs, cheese, anything high in fat. Four boxes of baking soda and thorough washing didn't help. I finally turned the unit down to below 38 degrees and the smell went away. That was a year ago. Now it's back, stronger than before. It fills the room with the odor of... solvent or a plastics plant. I turned the unit down again, to no avail. I'm sure Samsung would just stall; they're not going to replace a $2400 fridge, and they're not going to re-manufacture all of plastic components.
No food spill causes a plastic smell. We didn't spill benzine or paint thinner in our refrigerator!
So, technology that pollutes what it is supposed to preserve. Why am I surprised?
