Rinnai heaters


Some products need to cure and release a residual smell which is intensified by any open flame, like a pilot. Normally a petroleum product will do this but Scotchguard could as well. It should fade with time.

Atwood G6A manual water heater had gas flare up around the control knob when lighting the pilot. Unit is about 9 years old so repair or replace? works OK & no gas smell.


The gas control is leaking gas around the knob?
The gas control needs to be replaced before causing explosion and/or fire.
Gas control has identifying marks on side.

Holmes Heater HCH 4163 purchased 2 years ago & has seen only light duty. Upon turning heater on there is a severe electrical smell allthough heater appears to function normally; cord & heater do...


I think the warrenty on this heater is one year. If the heater housing and cord are not overheating then I would remove back panel and clean fiter and brush,vacumn,or use compressed air to clean motor and fan blades. It's possible that if you have not been using very much that it's just burning off debris and causing the smell. I hope this helps you. Thanks

Light doesn't turn on, nor does it heat up once I turn it on. First time I used it this winter it worked but smelled like it was burning and then stopped working?


sounds like it faulted and burned out some wiring i wouldn't use i would get it looked at to make sure all ok as it may now be elecrically dangerous, if that burning smell, smelt like rubber i'd say definatly electrical but without seening it to hard to say

My heater was just installed and it smells like burned stuff. What should I do to make the smell wear out, do I leave it on with windows open?


Check the installation paperwork and see if it says anything about it. Heaters have been coated with oil in the heat exchanger to prevent rusting. Sometimes a heater will be produced in the year 2010 for example, but doesnt sell until 1 or 2 and maybe 3 years later after that. So it might sit in the warehouse for a long time. The oil will help the metal from corrision. The installer is suppose to tell you that when you first turn on the unit, it will smell like burning (oil). Open the doors and some windows until the smell goes away. (15 to 30 minutes) This is normal. Now if the smell wont go away maybe something fell inside and is burning!!! RuNNNN!!! no may have to open it up to check... rare case

Sulphur smell


you can remove it but this will not fix your problem, you must cut the cold side pour in about half gallon of bleach ,drain heater of a gallon and a half first, then pour in bleach wait one hour then use as normal. you will have a bleach smell for some time but this will make the egg smell disapate.try this it worked for me.

Hotpoint wd62 washer dryier (aquarius 1200)


i am a retired engineer of 20 years, and its about a year since i worked on combination washer/dryers but if the heater elements fine and power comes from timer there must be cut out somewhere around where it should warm up, look all round the machine one may be hidden or hard to spot there maybe about 3 one of them one of them could be a trigger device (you can press a button to reset it) that style is a very small cube about the size of a sugar lump with2 spades on it, others look like a small flat oval or round shape the size of a five pence piece with 2 spade wires on them, remove the plug from wall and remove these spades and check the contacts for continuity, you need not remove from machine to do so, no circuit + no heat, replacement item not expensive, thats where to start based on the information given, check the sensors you mention again, it sounds like your so close, good luck and work safe
