We had a fridge failure 4 years ago, on a holiday weekend ( of course ), and I got a Samsung side by side with icemaker from Sears delivered and set up. So far it's been great. My take on the frightfully expensive WiFi/TV/talking/Google shopping/Facebook oriented appliances? STAY AWAY! FAR, FAR AWAY! Why would anyone need or want a fridge, microwave,washer/dryer, can opener, or any other appliance connected to the easily hacked Internet? Do you want some perv watching you raid the fridge at 2AM in your skivvies, or the Chinese government monitoring all your grocery items? I don't. I will NEVER have any of that IoT ( Internet of Things ) stuff in my home.
And as for that dead smell -- yep, the tried and true Arm& Hammer baking soda box left open inside pretty much eliminates odors, and it's dirt cheap. Plus my cats are paid handsomely to do rodent control.
