I have a ready heater pro 100 and it fills the room/garage with a gas that burns the eyes and really stinks??? It is propane???


Could be escaping gas. Gas providers usually ensure the gas they supply smells bad so leaks are difficult to ignore. I have never experienced stinging eyes from the gas though.
Stinging eyes and possibly a dry and scratchy throat sound more like a heater that is burning inefficiently and producing excessive amounts of soot and carbon monoxide and probably other foul and potentially dangerous substances in addition.

All heaters produce such gases and should not be used without ventilation but when a heater is in a good state of repair and burning efficiently the emissions and the ventilation required are minimal.

From your description it would seem something about your heater is faulty and you should not be using it until it has been checked and declared fit to be used, when you should find it no longer stinks or makes your eyes sting.

One thought, if you have a dog about the place that has spent all summer marking his territory on your heater, it will stink, really stink, and make your eyes sting for a considerable time...

Burning smell from heater when on high & fan on low


burning antifeeze, do you do 2 years AF service, or wait for the core
to rot thru.???
when the AF, gets old it goes Acidic. this eats the core,(heater) and
then it drips, and stinks.
or something died in there, (mouse)

or some chuck of sealant in the heater box hit the core and stinks
at 180F temp.

Wat gas has a burning smell?


You might have some dust or something in the vent tube. CLEAN IT NOW, it could cause a fire if lint is in it. Washington Gas Co. as well as others had to put an atitive in there gas to make it smell to know you have a leak. Natuaral gas on its own has no oder. Propain Stinks. If you smell what you think is gas, have it checked NOW.

My dryers smells like its burning and inside when drying gets really too hot. The air vent going outside is clean. I took off the casing and cleaned the inside of the dryer. The belt seems like its ok....


Lint burns quickly and rarely holds a flame long enough to cause a fire hazard. Metal burning would probably indicate friction on spinning metal, like the motor shaft, or the drum rollers. Plastic/rubber are usually parts that are intended to wear, and can usually be replaced.

Along with the belt, you should also check the idler pulley that takes up the slack in the belt, as well as any drum rollers or nylon glides on the top of the dryer door where the drum rides. Metal, plastic, and lint have distinct smells, and you should be able to determine which one(s) you have by smell.

Lint is a common burner in dryers, and it seems you've looked in some of the obvious places it can accumulate. When you have the cover off, pay special attention to the burner area, and any ducts from the lint screen area. Also, any gaps in insulation where air flows could cause hot spots in the unit. If you can see the flame while its running, make sure its size is not excessive. Flames should not be too low or too high, and should not escape the burner housing.

If you notice soot buildup, your gas/air mixture is off. If you've switched from natural to bottled gas or vice-versa, you may need to swap the burner orifices to match the different pressures of the gas fuel.

My new Electrolux IQ 8.0 cuft dryer smells like burning oil or grease when you run it. I just got it yesterday and have run 4 loads. It still stinks. My husband thinks this is normal. Is it?


From http://tedmalone.blogspot.com/2009/06/dryer-problem-solved.html

It turns out that the inlet vent in most dryers is louvered to mix in some outside air with the air being heated by the gas (~ 500 degrees F). In an effort to be more efficient, Electrolux removed these louvers and have not been able to lower the heat enough in their gas dryers to keep from burning clothes. Furthermore, it turns out there is a *new part* which if you're in-the-know you can order. It is the same part, but with the louvers back.

i stronlgy suggest you that dont use it if you are smelling a un usual scent like burning wires.

Dryer gives off a strong odor which make my clothes smell.


if you have been painting or staining recentley the chemicals in these products are mixing with the mercaptin in the gas to cause the odour. The problem will correct itself when the fumes are gone.
