What will help get rid of the problem

Baking soda

Take out the entire contents of the freezer and prepare a simple solution: dilute 2 tbsp of the powder in 1 liter of water. Soak a clean cloth in the solution and wash all surfaces with it, and then wipe with a dry cloth. Leave it for a while to allow the freezer to air out.

Salt and sugar

Salt helps remove unpleasant odors

Mix salt and sugar, pour them into an open container, and leave it in the freezer for a few days.

Vinegar

Take all the food out of the freezer. Dilute table vinegar with water in a small container, soak a sponge in the solution, and go over all surfaces one or several times. Then wipe them with a dry cloth.

Coffee

Coffee beans and grounds absorb odors well because they are considered natural absorbents. Simply place a saucer with the beans or pre-dried grounds in the freezer for a few hours.

Ammonia

Take ammonia and dilute it in water in equal proportions. Dampen a cloth or sponge in the resulting solution and walk over the surfaces of the freezer. Then it should be left open for several hours.
