Check the condensate pan clean out with vinegar water solution make sure you do not see any oil residue that would be a sign of a refrigerant leak let me know if you have further problems your manual should tell you how to get the cover off

that's not the full model number,there should be four more numbers.anyway does it have a heating element in the bottom of the tub,if so feel it with your hands,a piece of plastic could of hit it and is still melting when you run it,you can try using dishwasher magic,it's a bottle that you stick in the washer,the heat opens the bottle and it cleans the machine,also what kind of soap are you using?maybe try a new brand.also make sure the heater is in the metal holders,i've seen it knocked out and it will burn a hole through the tub.

Old baseboard heater smells like menthol


sorry, no solution. but. we recently moved into a 1940's apt. which has these older electric baseboard heaters and if we run them, they put off a menthol/chemical odor -- which sounds like the same thing you are experiencing (so will be very much interested in seeing if there is a solution).

if we either a) leave the heater running (even on low out in the living room) while we sleep or run it all day and don't air out the apartment, we both have serious achy joints the next morning and lots of stomach acid/irritation throughout the nite - also dry, red irritated eyes. apparently the cat has something going on as well -- he will get up throughout the night and walk thru the apt. yowling (not normal for him, only after we moved and started using the unit).

it took us a couple of weeks to identify what seemed to be causing the problem (the baseboard unit) and another week to do enough testing to determine that yep, you run that puppy, you're going to be real sorry that nite/next morning (and you won't sleep much because of the yowling cat). turn it off, no menthol/chemical smell. no yowling cat. no throat, stomach, eye irritation/gradoo, joint aches or sinus stuff going on that nite/next morning.

our solution? turn it off and leave it off. we're using a small metal cased ceramic disc heater instead (recommended on those multiple chemical sensitivity sights - figure if it's good enough for them it's good enough for us).

interesting info on EPA site re: appliances we don't think much about. one study re: air cleaners/ionizers, etc. - they did a random test of all kinds/price range/quality of air cleaners. they found **without exception** that all air cleaners/ionizers they tested put out "dangerous levels of chemicals" (their words). their recommendation, until further testing could be done is that if you want clean air... open a window.

it got me to thinking about this heater thing. and i wonder how many people are on medications for stomach issues (acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, etc.), sleep problems, joint aches, etc. that are caused by the appliances we run in our homes for air control.

i'll leave you with one other statistic that may be related to all of this: according to the CDC, 67% of the u.s. adult population is on at least 4 medications. when you look at that, you wonder, ok how many of us are on at least 2 medications (85+%?).

doctors usually don't ask you about what kind of devices you are running in your house and whether you notice a pattern of symptom abatement when you turn them off. they just give you whatever it takes to mask your discomfort.

just a thought.

Kenmore side-by-side has CHEMICAL SMELL ODOR inside.


You have a freon leak. With this only being 5 years old, iot's probably worth repairing, unless you are just able to buy a new one. I would have a local tech come out and check it before tossing it. I hope this answers your question and gives you some resolution. I hope to work with you again, so please record our name, email and phone number for future needs. Have a great evening!

I can herar water runnging inside the regierator.


You are probably hearing water running out of the unit during a defrost cycle. It runs inside a tube to the underneath of the refrigerator where it is collected in a pan and evaporated into the room by heat from the compressor fan.

Plasma TV smell?


i had the same prob and thought it would burn off. It didn't after a month. Read the comments and tried the plug direct into wall socket plus i washed off the tv surface several times. Now no smell. Not sure which action cured the problem but i'm now happy. It was so bad i had to leave a window open and at times i would gag from the smell.
