SOURCE: washer smells bad

There is a door on the bottom og this machine, I opened the door to find a little spot, I placed a bowel under the spout and opened it, drained all of the liquid out and this problem stopped! I also ran the machine on hot water with bleach after I emptied this resevoir. How often you do laundry will determine how often you must empty it. For me, once every 6-8 months does the trick!

SOURCE: rubber smell, Hoover

Its your belt burning up. You have to take the bottom of the unit off to check the belt to see if it was rubbing against something or if it is broken.

SOURCE: Bad smell coming from heater/ smoke coming out vents

I had the same problem in my 98 Dodge Dakota! Replaced the heater core, problem solved. No more funky coolant smell and erie fog coming through my vents. I bought the heater core at online. Have purchased many items now from them. All factory parts so far at half the price of even AutoZone, even with the shipping. Also, you usually have to wait only a couple of days depending on the part and they have EVERYTHING.

SOURCE: Ice and Refrigerator and Freezer smell like alcohol chemical

I believe that you might have a coolant leak causing the chemical odor. You really should get it checked out by a fridge repair-person because it's not healthy to breathe in the fumes.

It sounds like your emergency brake is on partially . Or maybe your rear brakes are adjusted too tight. Possible bad wheel bearing. Does it smooth out once you're moving? Can you smell any odd smells when this happens? Is something caught in a wheel well?

I have a 98 town car after 10-20 mins of driving it starts smelling like burning rubber from the inside i checked under the hood and there's no smell at all any ideas on what it is.

Check the tires they may be rubbing against something. Drive it until you get the smell then pull over and feel the back of each tire, if its hot you know which tire is causing the problem.

How to get rid of cigarette smell in car vents

Use air fresheners to eliminate smoke smell. After cleaning out the car, raid your pantry for odor eliminators. Dryer sheets placed under seats will help freshen the air. Also consider putting an open box of baking soda or a bowl of kitty litter in the car to absorb cigarette smell

Odd smell from engine

If you have been (revving the car/racing/accident/excessive speeding) you will smell something similar to burning oil from the engine, also if it has been more than 10,000kms (6000 mile) since last oil change you should get it serviced.

Odd smell when plugged in. smells almost like a lubricant or diaper cream. we've cleaned and bleached everywhere we can. it doesn't smell unless it is running and it is not inside the refrige

in the freezer behind the back inside wall of the freezer there's an evaporator fan motor that could cause this if you were smelling this inside,there's also a condenser fan motor in the back bottom of the machine that blows when it's running,pull out the machine,remove the bottom back panel and check the fan motor to see if any oil is leaking out of the motor.

Every person has different personal smell and that changes how fragrance react with the skin. You have to apply perfume without rubbing it into your skin, then wait 20 min and only at that time you will know if this fragrance for you or not.

Bad smell old food in unpluged refridge

The smell has permeated the plastic, set a fresh box of baking soda in the fridge. Give it a few days and clean it with awesome or murphys oil soap. You can also use comet cleanser but if to much rubbing will scratch the plastic.
