Bad chemical smell coming from the new Kenmore toaster.

Hello, I bought a new Kenmore toaster and when I opened it up and removed all the packing material it had a very strong chemical oder. So rather than try and make toast with it I ran it through several cooking cycles to see if it would burn off. This smell is really toxic smelling. I am really concerned as to whether or not we should eat anything cooked in this toaster. and yes, I did remove all the packing material completely. This fould smell is now all over my house. this is really sad that a brand new appliance will smell like that. Especially for cooking with. It is made in fricking China. It does not surprise me though,. Could not find a single toaster made in the USA. So Sad.

I would say return the toaster. No telling what kind of fumes would get into your toast -- toasted bread is like charcoal -- it'll absorb a lot of stuff.

I agree with the China/USA sentiment.

Burning chemical smell coming from the gas dryer


Hi,
You first thought was probably the correct one...the fumes from the new paint may take a few days to disspate enough not to react with the heat of the dryer...I would give it a few dyas to clear before looking any further...

Hello - did you ever figure out the metal/chemical smell problem? I seem to be having the same problem in my refrigerator/freezer. It is a side-by-side unit. We were gone over the Labor Day weekend for a few days and when we came back the unit has a metal/iron smell coming from it. Not sure what it could be.
Please let me know if you have any ideas.

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!

Return it and get a different brand of toaster. That will solve the problem. Hopefully they will let you give a reason why, and someone will care (probably not).

If you do not want to do this, you can plug it in outside and run it through several cycles. This will probably burn out anything that is causing the smell.

Make sure that they didn't have anything packed in the crumb tray.

Odor from toaster


ozone smells like fresh sweet air ( same smell as after a lightning strike )
what you probably have is the smell of melting plastic from wires in the toaster

Kenmore air cleaner


I just bought the same model and also have the smell. My previous one did not so I returned the first unit and the second units smells the same. I called Sears Customer Support and they told me that it is probably due to the factory smoke test they do on each unit. He said let it run for a few days and it should dissapate. I went a step further and am trying a new filter and if this works he said call the store and they will get me a new filter.
