stick home refridgerator odor

We left our refridge on for 6 wks and when we returned there was a bad chemical odor like acetone or freon?
We cleaned and discarded all plastic covered foods (Everything not in glass containers) Next we moved everything to the Monty and put charcoal and baking soda.
There was no real change and the Monty refridge was fine.
Anyone have a similar situation or know any possible causes.
The refridge is cooling fine and freezer compartment is very cold.

You might look under and behind the fridge. We came home once and found a dead rodent in there. Not sure if the smell got inside or not because everything smelled bad. While you're looking you can see if there are any signs of refrigerant leakage or any other peculiar signs.
