Take it to a caravan shop as the jets for the burner may not be compatible with the gas you are using

I have a breville kinetic blender - not used for a while. Gives a nasty burning smell when used. Anything I can do?


Unless it is food stuck around the blender bottom , you have parts burning up inside. Its not safe to use. Check to make sure it is clean top an bottom if smell returns stop using. Could burn house down.

Hi, we have a caravan which has an electrolux RM360 gas/electric fridge installed. There is a very weird smell coming out when the fridge is turned on. Its like an ammonia smell it is really strong,


Travel refrigerators use an ammonia coolant instead of freon. So the smell is telling you that you have a leak in the sealed system.

Suggest you look for a replacement fridge OR a rebuilt unit because that is usually cheaper than taking it to a service center for repairs.

Chemical smell in refrigerator and freezer.


Make sure that you switch off and remove all the items from the fridge. Now confrim if the fridge is from any food stuff or from the fridge. It sould be from any electrical burning, like the fan, the heater, the lamp holders etc. to even gas leak or compressor oil. If you are confirmed on the smell it is important to shut off and take help to repair as it may be hazardous. so check this out. Good day

Gas Smell


check under hood while it is running to see if there is gasoline dripping anywhere. You need to find it before it catches on fire. Use a bright flashlight and look at the fuel injectors and loser intake manifold as injector o-ring could be leaking. DO NOT use a lighter. Sorry, but I had to stress this. Gasoline does not burn. The fumes burn.

It smells like something is burning smells like the gas is not burning very harsh odor that burns your eyes after a period of time


If it smells like an incomplete combustion smell, clean the burner first. I'm assuming it used to work and now doesn't? If it never worked correctly it may have the wrong jet in it. There is a jet for propane and one for natural gas. They do not interchange. If it smells like plastic burning, something probably got past the screen and fell into the burner.

Frigidaire FRT18DRH smells like gas leak


Hey there....

The most common answer for your problem would be your door rubber not sealing.
The ice it builds up has that weard gas smell and the reson for ice building up is dampness in the atmosphere.
Remember that a fridge DONT make any thing cold,it only extracts heat.Witch means the air ceep coming in and the dampness freeze up,thats the ice forming,and am i right if i say it forms on the evaporator?"the plate at the back inside your fridge"

If so let me know and ill help you to fix it.


Regards.....
