Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

There is not an air filter on that model. Normally if you stick a box of arm and hammer baking soda it will get the smell out.

Thanks for the help however it did not solve my problem. Disappointed, but not in you. Have baking soda in the fridge w/o helping the situation

well sorry about that, but ya there are no air filters in that model, some units do have them but not that one. The best thing you can do is take everything out all the shelves etc clean it out real good with bleach and water in the freezer and refrigerator and that should kill the smells.
