Identify the odor first.
We once had a foul sewage odor every morning near the bar area. I found out that the J pipe under the bar sink wasn't trapping the odor. We rarely ran water through the bar sink that the water trapped in the J pipe had either spoiled or dried out, allowing foul odor from the main line to come up through the sink.

Also, check to make sure the drain vent pipe (which runs up and out the roof top) is clear of debris.

An ex girlfriend got payback for my bad behaviour buy putting raw shrimp in the curtain pelmets in my house,the smell was like a satanic botty cough, it took me three weeks to find them, I deserved it
what are curtain pelmets? i will take your word that you deserved it. but i think it is kinda petty.

I'm pretty sure that a pelmet is what we call a valance.

If it is a garbage disposal, chop up a lemon or a lime, or some fresh mint, and grind the living daylights out of it. Don't put in in whole, most disposals can't take it.

Joesfolk, I'm resurrecting this thread because I'm so curious if you found the problem?
Do tell?

Called a plumber, no problem there. Pulled out the fridge, no little task, no problem there but somehow the smell has gone away. I am afraid it was a dead animal under the house and we may hear (or smell) from it again when spring gets here.

So glad the smell is gone, JF.......that's what's important!! Hopefully in the Spring all you'll smell is the fresh breath of spring, with the widows wide open. Spring will come.

That's easy to say when you live in central Ca. Here it was 9 degrees today and that is not even considering the wind chill factor. When I lived in Oxnard it was 80 degrees on Christmas day. Not so here in michigan. I can't wait for spring to get here, it shouldn't take more than another year or too!
