bad smell in refrigerator

I have a newer LG refrigerator it has an awful smell it smells like something died in it. I took the whole thing apart and cleaned everything it smelled fine after cleaning. than I shut it and again after it was shut for a while when opened the smell was there again. I can not find anything that may be causing it. I than though that maybe a mouse died under it and tried to clean under but it is to large for me to move. I can't see anything under it. Any suggestion what might be causing the smell? And how to get ride of it. It has only been there a few days.Thanks

RE: bad smell in refrigerator

Sometimes the smell gets in the ice or ice-maker, and circulates to the refrigerator. Whenever I get a weird food-based odor in my fridge, I put 1/4 cup of ground coffee beans in a small cup or can, place it in there, and leave it for a few days. I use Folgers, Maxwell House, whatever brand we have. That has always worked for me.

Some people like to leave an opened box of baking soda in the fridge or freezer all the time because that works, also.
