We have a rinnai convector gas heater and when we turn it on it fills the room with a horrible gassy smell.


There are a couple of things that can cause this odor. But, being sure it's really a gassy odor is more important. It must smell like "rotten eggs" to be gas. If that is the odor you're smell, turn the heater of and contact an authorized Rinnai dealer for service.

If however the odor does not meet the "rotten egg smell", there are other things that cause the odor, but it's not really from the heater.

If you have painted or stained within the last 2 weeks, the heater has picked up the odor of the fumes (which you probably didn't notice) and has made time 50 times worse. The same holds true for carpet cleaning or new carpeting odors. If this fits the scenario, discontinue using the heater for a week or two until the odors subside. In the meantime, if weather allows, air the house out. Also, remove and clean the heaters filter, before restarting the heater,

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot & solve the problem.

You should have an Amp draw on the system and it's motors. Your nose will be your guide in figuring out what component is getting hot. Smell circuit board and electric motors.

Dryer makes a funny smell in the house and makes the cloths smell a lil funny as well???


I would need to smell the odor but a couple things will cause this. One being built up lint that is smoldering so I would definitely investigate inside for this. Also (more common with gas dryers) is when customers are painting or staining and varnishing in the house. This will give clothes a kerosene type odor. Try to think back to when it started and see if anything was changed in the household routine at that time. Good luck, Eric

Kitchenaid selectra oven range: Electrical smell


If this is a new range the odor is coming from the binder used to install the insulation in the range. You would need to put it through a self clean cycle of at least four hours to burn off this binder. I would suggest that you do it on a nice day when you are staying home and can open the windows as it will smell quite horrid for a while.

Electrical burning smell in house


Mhenn, It is my guess that the 'electrical burning' smell is from your heating system. Since there is no smoke and the walls are not warm.... then there is no real problem. The smell maybe just dust has collected in the duct work that is burning off the central heating systems electrical heat strips. If you have electrical heat strips then that may be the problem. If you have a central gas heat system, it may be the same type problem. Hope this helps you. Henry

Samsung washing machine smell


Keeping the lid shut is one of the worst things you can do for a washer. Obviously, the company you spoke to does not know what they are talking about. It is strongly recommended that you leave the lid OPEN when not in use in order to ventilate the wash tub and allow it to dry. There is always a small amount of residual water in the drain pump and lines, however, that will not evaporate. With the lid shut this residual water can sour and cause odors.

Consumers that do not normally use a HOT water cycle, do not use bleach, or run the washer infrequently can also experience odor problems with mildew and odor. It is recommended that you run at least one HOT cycle per week, or run a cycle with bleach when washing whites to keep bacteria and odors to a minimum. I hope this advice helps you. Let me know if you require further assistance.

XL-15 Classic Living Air emmitting Foul Odor!!


Ionizers do cause a bad odor to happen. I work in the copier business and do work around machines that can cause an ozone to happen when there are ran. Copiers like ionizers can cause an ozone to happen because the air particles are being electrically charged. The smell isn't good to be breathing in as well.

Here is an EPA report about ionizers

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to be making a decision about the health effects on ionizers by the end of the year. Their decision can effect selling ionizers all together.

This industry should have been regulated years ago and after what happened to Sharper Image this year due to their arrogance it isn't doing the industry any favors. They went out of business because of Consumer Reports findings and tried to sue them for it.

If you really want the air in your house cleaned, the best way to do it is using a hepa filter.
