It appears to me that each hood has a fan discharging air and odours into a common duct.
The only solution to me is to have a main exhaust fan at the very end of the duct continually sucking the air out of the duct.This way it will not allow the individual hood fans to pressurise the main duct,forcing the air to esape through the path of least resistance,which happens to be the neighboars hood.

It may be that such a fan is existent but switched off due to malfunction,or switched off for running costs reasons.

How do I get help for a bad smell around my home. it is driving me out off my home .maybe a drug cooker.


Call the police or county health dept. Your problem could be as little as a blocked drain or as big as the guy next door you haven't seen for a couple of weeks, dead in his arm chair!! Get online find your county health dept and make that call. If you have town gas to your property, mention that, that usually perks them up a bit.
Good luck.

My downdraft vent no longer removes cooking fumes and smells for days after cooking. We have changed the screens, but still have residue coming from the vent inside the cabinet. Does this vent need to


Remove the motor together with the blower wheel, go to the local self service car-wash and use the engine de-greaser cycle (if not available, buy a can at the auto supply, spray the fan blade and let sit for a while) and get all the grease of the fan blades. make sure the fan blades are cleaned thoroughly. the fan will now ran quietly and will remove all the grease away. in the future, clean the filters often.

Awful smell coming from refrg. ge told me there is no drip pan that i can access. any other solutions? model MBF1956KEG


I live in a trailer park and i didn't have a fridge. A neighbour went to a nursing home and left everything behind so i salvaged his fridge. He was taken by ambulance in january and by march or april i got the fridge. Everything in it had spoiled. The stench of rotted meat was very bad. The smell was similar to a slaughterhouse. Meat juices had gotten in-between the plastic panels. I washed what i could outside using quadrated ammonia, even TSP and hot water... nothing solved the problem. I reasoned that i needed ozone to destroy the smell. They rent ozone machines but a product like fabreeze is made of ozone so i tried that. I had to spray it a couple times over a few days using the one for surfaces. The smell completely disappeared.

Are there different types of flu shots available?


: Yes, there are four main types of flu shots available:

1; The traditional flu shot that is injected into the muscle. It contains flu-particles but will not give you the flu.

2; The high-dose shot that is the same as the shot above but contains a higher dose

3; The intradermal flu shot that contains the same vaccine as the others but can be injected just skin deep and can be used on people age 18 to 64.

4; The nasal spray vaccine that can be used on people age 2 to 49. It contains a live, weakened flu virus.

Your doctor will advise you which of the vaccines is best for you.

Ac smell in 2009 Mercedes c300


Check drain and unclog if required.
Remove air cabin filter (see you tube for instructions). Make sure it is done in a clean place so no dust or dirt gets in while you do this.
Block Air Cabin filter opening with duct tape.
Set fan to 50% (3/4), temperature to minimum
AC must be OFF
Open hood and using a Spray bottle, spray half a bottle of Alcohol 70% into the air intake vents at bottom of windshield
Turn off fan
Let it sit for 30 to 60 min
Set temperature to max and fan to max
Open hood and using a Spray bottle, spray the second half (250ml) of a bottle of Alcohol 70% into the air intake vents at bottom of windshield.
Turn heater and fan OFF
Take off duct tape and replace the air cabin filter (new one is better)
If you don't take off the air cabin filter, a lot of the alcohol or disinfenctant (like Lysol) may be stuck in the filter causing an irritating smell.
Replace Air cabin filter if possible.

Problem with cooker hood


Filters clean? Fan running? No clogs in the exhaust?

On the one hand, you want the disagreeable stuff out of the kitchen - on the other hand, you want to keep your heated or cooled home air to stay inside.

My Bathroom Extractor Fan does not work properly and for some reason the bathroom smells of cigarette smoke when the upstairs neighbours are at home!! Our landlord say's this is not possible!!!


Yes, very possible!. The bathroom fan is connected together, and the upstairs one is down-drafting to you. Have the exhaust checked for blockage, or buy a fan that has a built-in damper that closes the exit when not in use.

The lint trap on my dryer is moist.


I don't know what's causing the smell, but the moist lint trap and the "takes two cycles" sounds like the exhaust vent is partially blocked.

You can ask the apartment manager to clean it out, or you can take a stab at it yourself with an electrician's fish tape, a plumber's snake, or a dryer-duct cleaning kit. (I picked links from Ace, but you can get them at any hardware or home shop)


Pull the dryer out and detach it from the ductwork. If you're using the fish tape or the drain auger, then you'll want to tie a rag to the end -- washcloth to dishtowel sized at the biggest -- to wipe the lint out of the ductwork. If you've got the duct-cleaning-kit, then use the brush that comes with the kit.


Work your way up and down the ductwork as far in as you can reasonably reach. Chances are good that you'll soon have a huge pile of lint on the floor, and much better airflow through the ductwork.

Hook up the dryer and things should go much better on the next laundry day.
