Hi I have just moved into a new house and there is a musty smell coming from the electric Dimplex heaters fixed to the walls. is there any way of getting rid of this smell? thanks# Mary


Are the heaters hydronic? (Heated water flowing thru tubes) If so, the musty smell is because the water has been leaking which is obviously a problem. I know you mentioned that they are electric heaters, but "musty smell" goes hand in hand with moisture.

There's a bad smell coming from my Amcor AF9000E NanMax portable AC unit. It smells like the smell that you would find in a damp, musty basement. Is there anything that I can do to illuminate this...


Yes there is. First turn the unit OFF & unplug it. The remove the air intake filter and clean it. After that, remove the water collection bucket and was it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse and thoroughly dry. Doing this should help to eliminate the odor.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

You may have a low charge of freon, most likely about 10 ounces, as far as the musty smell that is mold from the inside of the AC air box, they make various chemical tratments to cure this issue, but once the smell is there it can be diofficult to kill the mold that causes it.
