Mark, My name is Hal and having trouble understanding where you painted. Did you paint the inside of the drum? Or did you paint the house interior?

If you painted the inside of the drum did you use a high temperature paint? If not, that could be your problem since the dryer does get very hot inside and it could be melting your paint.

Hi, If it is the paint that is chipping on the bottom of the oven then that is where you are getting the smell. That paint is actually very important to keeping the heat inside the oven and not letting the actual cavity itself from getting too hot. I hate to say it but you will probably end up having to replace the oven. You can get a second opinion from a local servicer to give a definit yes or no. but from the sounds of it that is what you will have to do. Sorry, hope this helps.

I bought a Sunbeam Heating Pad (Ultraheat) last year which I just took it out of the box last night. It is brand new, not used until last night and it smell like it was burning. I instantly unplugged it....


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

i think from sitting in the box for a year, the material can smell, form its first time usage.
I suggest you put the pad on or in a baking dish on the stove..plug in and see if the smell burns off. I think it will.

if not return to Sunbeam (800) 435-1250

Ventless gas heater smells like kerosene


It is posible that your heater is burning fumes from paint, varnish or stain and some times carpet cleaners or other household cleaners. I work for a utility company. We get called to homes for a lighter fluid/kerosene smell quit often. Most of the time it is from the fumes burning off on a standing pilot gas oven. The odor collects in the oven and is released in the customers face when they open the oven door. This will happen with any open flame appliance when exposed to these fumes.

Charmglow Ventless Wall heater stinks - Literally!


some suggestions that may help: a sulfer type smell is the additive in the natural gas, kind of like eggs. if this is your smell, you have a gas leak. if any other propellents like hair spray, furniture polish, air fresheners are nearby, the vapors are burned by the stove and you can smell those, as well as a fine white powder building up on the stove. if a paint smell, then check to see if the back wall of the stove paint is burning away. if so, you can speed the process with a small hand held torch used for plumbing. when the paint is gone, the smell is gone. good luck.

Stink Smell from Electric Clothes Dryer/Fuse Box


this should be quite easy to solve.remove the circuit breaker and sniff it. if it is the same smell you are getting when the dryer is running that is your problem.have an elecrtician check and replace with correct value.the dryer is most probably running on an overloaded circuit.
