SOURCE: Wall unit emits a chemical smell when the unit is running

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

SOURCE: Will Not Heat

On the outdoor unit the fan should not be running, on the indoor unit the fan should be running. If you then check the outdoor unit with fan not running, you should be able to hear clearly that the compressor is actually working. If this is all correct, it is possible that your fourway reverse valve is seeping and needs to be replaced.

Have the unit a few years, love it, no previous problems. Now, all of a sudden, when I turn the unit on, the air coming out smells awful - smells like cat urine. I cleaned thoroughly around the unit...

This smell is coming from the Indoor Unit.
It needs to be cleaned and filter cleaned or replaced.

Here is a link to the owners manual which has the cleaning procedure

We have a 1 horse power carrier split type a/c and the smell is nasty coming from a/c? also smells when it isn't running- smells like something dead .

Generally if an a/c smells nasty then there is a problem with the drain and the water is
making it's way elsewhere. I would be checking for damp walls , base mold and carpet
in adjacent walls and closets. Make sure the unit is draining properly (power off for servicing)
It is possible that a critter may be to blame but rather rare. Hope this helps.

Oder in freezer and refrigerator

the smell is bacteria caused by the buildup of moss from condensation.switch off unit do a complete defrost,( leave the doors open).wipe out the interior with chlorine bleach(the smell will go in about an hour or so)syringe the drain with bleach and then dry thoroughly.after drying switch on and leave to settle for 24 hours to regain operating temp(fridge +2/5c...freezer -18c)then refill with food,covering any open dishes.try to fill all drawers in freezer with food and any spare space fill with screwed up newspaper.
use a toothbrush to get into door seals/corners DO NOT USE HEAT/SHARP OBJECTS TO DEFROST.use towels in bottom to soak up all the water....

On your thermostat switch the system "off" switch the fan "on" and check for smell. If it still smells, could be fan motor overheating. This may be causing the outdoor problem.

Hi, I have a hoover front loading washing machine and inside the drum seal there was a lot of mildew as I accidentally left some damp tea cloths inside the drum and the machine wasn't used for 2 weeks....

Run your washer with 2 cups of bleach, maximum hot water. After it starts agitating for a minute, stop the washer & let it remain for 2 hours. Then continue the wash.
