Cotton balls soaked in pure vanilla extract. Scatter them all inside and leave them in for a while.

I would wash it with a bleach solution. If that does not work, then try white vinegar. You can even leave a dish of white vinegar in there for a few days to see if that helps absorb the odor.

Might want to try e-bay on those. I had to show my Rv dealer what they were when they broke both of them!

When I had a issue with a home freezer, I used charcoal and it took time.

Our fridge developed some mildew while it sat on a sales lot. I wiped it down with vinegar soaked rags, got into the cracks really good and then wiped it dry. Then I soaked a paper towel in vinegar and placed it in the freezer. I left it a couple of days, then removed it and wiped everything down again with plain water and another clean cloth. It solved the odor problem for me.

What does it smell like? Likely on the coils and in the ducts for the freezer blower. Auto supply stores sell a spray that kills mildew in AC vents might help.
