Just run bleach into the sink and fill with water pull the plug and put some bleach down the sink overflow.
Turn the electric off to the box and let it steep in the bleach mix for a while then turn it on to flush it clean,
make sure when doing this nothing comes out of the air vent and remove the charcoal filter if fitted.

The smell will come from bugs living in the pump - or in the pipework connected to it or perhaps even the drains - probably not the drains if there's an S bend in the system.
Flush through - and repeat overnight - flush again
