I have vacuumed and cleaned out the air filters and the deodorizing filter, but still get the moldy smell whenever the a/c is turned on. What else needs to be done to eliminate this awful smell?

Try cleaning the evaporator coil. You can buy some cleaner that doesn't have to be rinsed off at a heating and air supply. This should help.

Fishy smell comes from machine during use what's the problem and how do I solve I have changed filter and rinsed out tanks


If you are sure it is not in the filters (there will probably be more than 1) and the tank/dust collector is clean, then I would make sure all of the tubes are clean and totally debris free.
The smell may linger a while and fade over time if you have cleaned it as best as you can, so in the meantime maybe put some kind if deodorizer in the outlet filter.

How many cabin air filters do I need to replace in a 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited?


1 filter. You could also try spraying deodorizer into the cabin air system intake near the hood and windshield from the exterior.

Dyson filter smells like mold after washing


Patry816:

It might not be the filter! The hose, canister and suction vanes on the motor also can cause that smell!!

Sour odor


You should always put a new hepa filter in any E and E2 series Rainbow vacuum, when it taken to a new home. It will smell like the home that it was in, until you do.

You can also use fragrances, and deodorizer air freshener in your vacuum, which not only eliminates odors, it add fresh aromas to your air in your home, also.

Replace the hepa filter first thing.

If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,

Moldy smell in washer after using it.


add about 4 cups of bleach to the washer run through the hottest wash cycle possible. allow to air dry overnight. then add 4 cups plain white vinegar and run through hottest cycles again. to ensure this doesn't happen again remove all wet item as soon as possible. any clothing items that smell musty can also be run through a vinegar wash using about 1/2 cup in the softener compartmen.

Deodorizing the vacuum


First of all Clean out the vacum cleaner . Empty canister and take filter outside and hit on something to get all dust out . Now wash canister and filter with vinegar water and let dry before using vacum again. You might try using carpet fresh for pet odors on carpet and empty and clean canister and filter regularly. I own a cleaning business and this is a hard problem to solve with all vac. cleaners. Good Luck!!

Moldy smell


Turn it off, unplug it. Remove filter and check if filter and/or filter and pump housing are clogged with something "smelly". When you're at it check the drain pipe for too.

Dog smell after cleaning


This is an inherent problem with bagless vacuums. The filter(s) will absorb odors and odors will get trapped in places that you cannot clean. This is why I always recommend bagged units. They are easier to clean and the odors go out with the bag. About the only thing you can do is put a deodorizer in the machine and keep the filter clean. Be careful not to use petroleum based deodorizers as they can affect the plastic.

Odor blowing from filter area


It sounds like you will need to first clean it very well if you haven't yet and then most likely the problem is the rear hepa filter is ruined due to having sucked up what you did and gotten some on the filter.
Each time you turn on the machine hot air is blown through it and can smell very foul. I had gotten mine wet once from the machine tipping over and had to replace it because it started smelling moldy. Very easy job to do and its about 25 bucks and you can find them on ebay or other places. Hope this helps
