Question about Refrigerators
Without knowing your model# to know which fridge you have makes it difficult to tell you how to do this. Most models have the lower frame supporting the pan and it is not easily removed. It is also very possible to damage the pan if not done correctly so I normally never recommend someone do this! Once it crack, you need to replace it!

SOURCE: Cleaning drip tray.
I have just removed the drip tray from my fridge freezer and it was relatively easy.
Do not remove the compressor unit.
The drip tray is held in place by a metal clasp which is welded to the top of the compressor. The clasp is a flat piece of metal which must physically twisted to align with the key way in the plastic drip tray. I used thin pair of pliers to grip the clasp and twist it clockwise to line up with the tray key way. The tray then has to be carefully manouvred off the compressor so as not to cause damage or spill it foul smelling contents. This I managed to achieve fairly easily.
Clean out and install then twist the clasp to clamp the tray into position. I don't know what would happen if you didnt lock the tray back in position as it does not seem capable of falling off on its own and it would be easier to remove next time.
Hope this makes sense

Hello. yes. The tray can be slid out. Before you do this, unplug your fridge. Then remove the lower front grill, it just lifts off. Grasp the tray and gently pull it forward. J.

SOURCE: How do I remove the
we had a really bad smell coming from the back of our westinghouse aurora. and yes found it to be emanating from drip tray at the back. To remove this we had to undo 4 clips at the base of black motor thingy, that the plastic drip box sits on. Then we were able to lift whole thing a bit ,(10mm up and 50mm out, approx) so we could tilt everything forward and sweeze and wiggle tray out. then cleaned with bleach. also we unblocked hole inside fridge that allows water to drip into drip tray at back.
