Of course, this applies to gas dryers only. If you smell natural gas near your gas dryer, do not light matches or a lighter and don't operate electrical switches or anything that might spark, igniting an explosion. Immediately shut off the gas valve that serves the dryer. If the smell is mild, ventilate the area, wait until the air is clear, and re-light your pilot light. If the smell is strong, move everyone outside, leaving the doors open to ventilate the house. Turn off the gas supply valve --located by the gas meter on the gas inlet pipe-- by rotating the valve one quarter turn with an adjustable wrench. The valve's oblong stem should be perpendicular (at a right angle) to the inlet pipe to stop the flow of gas. Call your gas supplier (or the fire department) from a neighbor's phone or a cellular phone outside the house.

Problems with a clothes dryer normally involve the heat source or the motor that tumbles the clothes: clothes don't dry because it doesn't get hot enough or the drum doesn't rotate.

Vehicle smells like natural gas after stopping when vehicle is hot


I think you are getting a rotten egg smell,not natural gas. I would check for exhaust leaks from the catalytic converter for starters. Have you checked the grill at the base of the windshield and on top of the firewall? folks have been known to drop eggs down there as a prank.

Natural gas smell from my lincoln mkx


Cylinder Misfires or a Rich Fuel mix,
that is overheating the Exhaust Converter
& giving you the smell

You have to correct the fuel trim or ruin the
converters

Need professional test equipment & take that
on a road test

A repair shop can do that

Don't need a dealer,nothing special
they do

Our Viking oven (approx. 8 or 9 years old) seems to be taking longer to preheat and we have noticed a gas smell when the oven is on. Last night, it took at least a half an hour to reach 350.


What type of Gas do you have?-- Natural Gas?-- or Bottled Gas?
The reason I ask, is that If your gas supply is in a tank,-- the tank might be low..)

If you have Natural Gas, and you suspect that you smell gas, You can call your Natural Gas supplier, and have them check for leaks.

So-- If you know you do not have a low gas tank, then you need to call your utility first.

We just had new Rheem Natural Gas Furnace


Hello. yes there is a 2 second delay and when the conditions are just right you can smell gas. Although this is not dangerous or a health risk, you could run the exhaust pipe up in the air a few feet to get rid of the smell. Regards, Joe

Ventless gas heater smells like kerosene


It is posible that your heater is burning fumes from paint, varnish or stain and some times carpet cleaners or other household cleaners. I work for a utility company. We get called to homes for a lighter fluid/kerosene smell quit often. Most of the time it is from the fumes burning off on a standing pilot gas oven. The odor collects in the oven and is released in the customers face when they open the oven door. This will happen with any open flame appliance when exposed to these fumes.
