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?
