I have had first hand experience with this, Chicken..... During the summer we left the freezer on in 100 degree heat for two weeks, could smell it from outside. The freezer blew a fuse and quit working. The good news is you can clean it up and get the smell out. Use lots of cleaner, open all the windows, use more cleaner....a anti-bacteria kitchen cleaner works best. Then when you can not clean anymore line the bottom of the freezer with newspaper get a big bowl of coffee grounds and put it in the freezer and close the door for a couple of days, you will need to do this a couple of times then use the boxes of arm and hammer baking powder for as long as you can changing them often. the smell will decrease fairly fast, and you may smell a few wiff's here and there but it will go away. Trust me I thought that I would have to replace the fridge as it was really, really bad. I was able to save it.

Take some paper plates or foil pie tins and load them up with baking soda then place them in the frig and freezer, it will absorb the smell with time.

Or you can also lay news paper on the bottom of the freezer and place charcoal on it, the charcoal will also absorb the odor.

Baking soda and vinegar rub.

Scrub it really good with a Clorox cleaner. You may also want to try doing a baking soda wash down. Leave the freezer open and pick up some Zeolite. This stuff works miracles on bad odors. It is rechargeable too. Just sit it in the sun for six hours and it's ready for use again.

Use comet or Ajax and a scrub brush with hot water. Clean all spots the chicken or the liquids came in contact. Repeat this procedure several times and allow to dry thoroughly between times. Place an auto deoderizer inside and close fridge. A few weeks in the hot sun and all traces of the odor should be gone.

Rotten Meat!!!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news--- but on our coach we did about everyone of the above options. Even boiled a vinegar solution & soaked newspapers in it and put in closed freezer. Everything we did got maybe 90% of the smell out.

Nothing got all that smell out. Finally had dealer replace Frig. $1500 if I remember right???

Don't know first hand but have been told that you can also put some charcoal in a couple of cups and it is suppose to absorb the odor. Just a suggestion I have heard about.

I think it's only like aquarium charcoal. It's called activated charcoal. A quart would be a good start. I used to use X-14 mildew and stain remover to clean used(stinky) refrigerators I got to fix and resale.
