Try a box of Arm & Hammer baking soda- Just open the top and place it in. We keep a box in our house fridge full time. Hope this helps!! Randy

might want to wash the inside with a solution of water and baking soda first then put the box of baking soda in.

Try washing the interior with Pine Sol then leave the door open for a few days. Then put a pan of activated charcoal in the freezer to absorb any remaing odor. Hopefully it will help out your fishy situation!

If it smells like fish I would bet that there is some sort of dead animal somewhere. May want to nose around (no pun intended) the fridge compartment outside and other compartments as well.
