SOURCE: Following removal of filters from

Although you cleaned the filter and vacuumed the outside of the heater, there is probably a dust and dirt build up inside the heater, that also needs to be cleaned out. A dust build up can clog the burners so that they do not burn cleanly and thereby produce a gas odor, Be sure you turn the heater OFF and let it cool completely, before removing the heater's cabinet. A Shop Vac with a brush attachment on the hose and a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) works well in performing the cleaning process. Be sure to not only clean the burners, also clean the pilot and the pilot assembly.

If after completing the above, you still get a gas odor (if it doesn't smell like rotten eggs, it's not gas), it would be wise to perform a leak check on all the fittings. With that said, it's normal to get a whiff of gas when the burner lights and turns OFF, But, it should dissipate quickly.

Hope this helps you further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Hello. When our Rinnai direct vent wall heater lights on it smells of gas. I do not recall smelling this before. It is a sweet smell not a sulfur smell. The filter is clean.


If it's a sweet smell. it's not gas. Gas smells like rotten eggs. There may be something inside the heater that's causing this odor. Remove the cover of the heater and look for some foreign that shouldn't be there. Perhaps, a dead mouse.

There is a strong acrid odour coming from my Amana refrigerator. This frig is 15 years old and has a top freezer.


It may be a refrigerant leak in the coil and it will stop working soon. When this happens it's time for a new box. 15 years is a good run.
A new coil could cost as much as a new frig and that's without labor cost.
I hope this helps

use a strong solution of clorine bleach(in a spray bottle) to get into every nook and cranny/drainholes/drip trays/door seals and wipe dry(clorine is a gas and will dissipate within an hour or so)then wipe over interior with a damp cloth and plenty of bicarb,leave to dry and leave any bicarb residual inside fridge as this will absorb any smells left.leave door open for about a day in a warm (ish) room, this is the only way of deoderising......

Hi This is happening to us and I called Rinnai... they suggested that if anyone either in our apartment or an ajoining one has painted walls or varnished a floor that the convection heater picks up the smell and the only way to get rid of it is to burn it off by running the heater for several hours in a well ventalated room...

I am going to try it tomorrow.

will let you know
