    It isn't good get the person back out and tell him right away. Sounds like a leak or faulty valve.

That's a little scary to have a new boiler emitting the smell of gas. It might be good to call a professional even if you are aware of the cause. When things are working as they should, I imagine that it's better to be safe than sorry. http://www.schweitzerbros.com/contact

Dryer works fine but i smell gas when it first comes on then goes away and the smell is only outside


Any gas operated divice will have some gas odor when it ignits, because not all gas is vaporized during the initial combustion. BUT check to make sure that your exhaust hose is clear, so that unburnt gas goes outside your living area instead of inside!

Service Engine Soon light keeps coming on, and will go out by itself at random. You often smell gas in the back seat area when the car turns off. The OD=II lists a p0440 code. It recently had a catalytic...


Sounds like the new catalytic might of been a high flow or a universal. So your likely smelling unburnt gas. Now your aux o2 sensor located in your exhaust might be registering it more because it is usually right before or right after the catalytic.

My ariston boiler is not working it just shows A 01 have reset but still nothing any ideas?


Basic checks:-
water pressure in boiler
gas supply on
Turn boiler on then:-
does the fan come on - u can hear this at the top of boiler
does the gas valve click on
has there been a burning smell near the lower front [check the pcb]
check the co-axial flue is ok with no gaps between inner & outer [rare but not unknown]
If it's a condensating boiler check the condensate outlet tube for ice blockage especially in current weather

Smells like gas and when i press on the gas it putters. white smoke coming out of exhaust


White smoke is usually a sign of head gasket problems.Gas smell could be the unburnt fuel from the cylinder head which is the source of the problem.

My 2005 sonata starts after trying several times. It just turns over like a car out of gas, then usually on the third time it will start.


Sounds like its either fuel or ignition. Have someone turn the car over while you sniff the exhaust.
If it smells of raw unburnt gas , fuel is not the issue , your problem is most likely ingition. Car might run rough at first when it does start , due to being slightly flooded.
If no gas smell probably a fuel problem. Possible low fuel pressure , or no fuel injection.
