It sounds like a gas leak! Spray all of the connections with Windex. If you get any bubbles, that's a leak. Tighten it. But...I can't believe that a bonafide serviceman wouldn't think of that.

My turned on the kitchen cold water tap last week and the smell of petrol that came out was over powering ! It's still very strong I don't know what to do ! How do I clean it is there a chemical I...

Unless a petroleum product was poured into your well or the ground water around it was contaminated with it and it leeched into the well water, I suspect the odor you smelled was a high mineral content odor. This sulfur odor is often associated with the deep artesian wells and can be rather strong. Normally, it's caused by a seasonal change in the underground water table. If you didn't get the odor from the hot water tap, that's an indication, that when the water is heated to a high temperature the odor dissipates. But, to be on the same side, I would recommend that you have you water supply tested for contaminants. Generally, your local health department or a water testing company can do this for you. If it's what I think it is, the well can be treated.

Hope this helped to address your concerns,

I used a product called SimpleGreen in just the spray bottle and a damp washcloth and scrubbed the interior down make sure to keep the windows rolled down its pretty strong, it will get rid of the smoke smell but will replace it with the cleaner smell for a week or so, but after that I didn't have any of odors come back.

Take out the battery and run just on external power, see if the smell goes away. If it does, check to see if there is a recall on that battery.

Strange smell

Have you cleaned the evap coil? Most often smells come from the evap coil. A bleach type product used for cleaning will solve this problem. Thanks
