Last Update Date : Dec 04. 2019

* Please note, this section is designed to give you basic product troubleshooting information, also refer to your user manual for more information.

Some fridges from Samsung come with a deodoriser that will need to be cleaned periodically. For best results, the deodoriser cartridge should be cleaned about once or twice a year. 


Please follow the instructions below to clean and locate the deodoriser in your Samsung Fridge.

(Not all Samsung fridges come with a deodoriser. You can check your particular model by downloading the manual from our Manuals & Downloads page.)

How Do I Clean the Deodorizer?

The deodorizer is located in the back of the refrigerator just below the beverage compartment. To help the deodorizer last longer, you'll need to clean it regularly.

1 Locate the deodorizer cover and remove it from the back wall of the refrigerator compartment.
2 Separate the deodorizer from the deodorizer cover.
3 Soak the deodorizer in clean water and then let air dry.
4 Attach the deodorizer to the deodorizer cover, and then reinstall the deodorizer into the back wall of the refrigerator compartment.

Note: Soaking or drying the cartridge in a confined area may cause the area to fill with odors. Clean the cartridge in a well-ventilated area.

If There Is Still an Odour

If the refrigerator has an odor even though the deodorizers has been cleaned, follow these steps:

1 Remove all the food from the refrigerator.
2 Unplug the refrigerator
3 Leave the doors open for ventilation
4 Remove all the shelves, door bins, and containers. Soak them in warm water. Thoroughly clean them with dish detergent and replace them.
5 Remove the deodorizer and soak it in warm water for at least four hours. Dry it in a sunlit area and then replace.
6 Discard any plastic bags with food stored in them, and put in new bags.

What is Silver + deodorizer in the fridge and what does it do?

Silver + deodorizer is made of natural fiber filter and deodorizing filter to eliminate food smells and bacteria that alters the smell of groceries.

Silver ions protect food from spoiling. Since silver ions kill the air born bacteria that can cause a mold odour.
