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.

Had a strong Amonia smell. Fridge wants to turn on but no cooling.


Strong Ammonia smell is dead give away for LEAK. Ammonia is the chief ingredient in the absorption type cooing system. Probably not economical to repair. For a second opinion, contact a Dometic Authorized Service Center.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

There's a strong smell (fumes) coming from the printer. I felt high the first day and I had a funny feeling in my throat on one side. Some say it smells like a hot blow dryer or burning smell. I need to...


The odor is coming from what is called the 'fuser' which heats and bonds the toner to the paper stock. There may be some light residue from the manufacture of the fuser roller which is heated to a high temperature to enable the fusing to take place. It may linger for several days but is unlikely to be hazardous in nature otherwise Samsung wouldn't allow it to remain on the assembly. Laser printers often smell 'hot' due to this process but I have not heard of any hazard caused by fumes. One caveat though; the fuser roller is coated with Teflon or an equivalent coating. I nearly died from Teflon which was in a gaseous state many years ago but it was exposed to temperatures of greater than 450F which is dangerous since the effect is that of a nerve gas called phosgene. Since that is a temperature one can easily reach on a stove-top, we have NO coated cookware in our home.
If you notice that the plastic near the warmest place on your machine feels uncommonly hot, it might be best to shut it down since it may be possible for the thermostatic control to fail so the fuser is heated to an abnormally high temperature. I'm fairly sure there is a thermal fuse to prevent catastrophic failure but wouldn't count on it.

Plasma TV smell?


i had the same prob and thought it would burn off. It didn't after a month. Read the comments and tried the plug direct into wall socket plus i washed off the tv surface several times. Now no smell. Not sure which action cured the problem but i'm now happy. It was so bad i had to leave a window open and at times i would gag from the smell.
