To have any smell out of your AC are due to three main reasons.

First from dirty air filters, in any case remove them clean the with warm water and soap and try again.
If you still have the smell you need to remove plastic cover and have a visual check if any part due to exceed heat like plastic part create the smell.
And third you can see if there were any gas leak and this is what create the smell. Check piping if they have any layer of green –blue colour cover mixed with dust.

Rotten eggs smell


The smell is sewer gas coming back in the house from the sewer or septic tank ether from a dried out water trap in a floor or fixture drain, or from the roof vent, or a hole or separation in pipe or fitting. Like wax ring under toilet. First pore water down every drain to fill any trap that might have gone dry, then flush toilet or run washer or drain bath tub.This will displace gas in pipe and will cause the smell to increases if there is no smell then the problem is fixed if not check roof vent it may need a charcoal filter on top, There is no water trap on air vent on roof and is an open hole to the sewer or septic, The heating system in the winter or AC in summer will draw the gas inside from the vent.If it is the vent you should be able to smell it from outside. If all tests fails You will need to have a smoke test done. A smoker is set up outside and the line is filled with smoke and will show where gas is coming from. Also it might be a good ideal to check all gas fittings in case it is a gas leak.

Hello all, There is a awful sewer smell coming from my bath tub, it leave some type of brownish film over the drain almost up to the spout, it fumes or what ever it is also burns my eyes some, I don't know...


Sounds like a septic back-up...if indeed you have a septic tank. This could happen very easily--just from flushing a tampon or cigarette ****. Also certain types of trees have a rapidly growing root system that does nothing but head for the nearest water source, growing and entwining into a septic tank, clogging it up.
If this is the case, call a plumber to get it unclogged, then get some root kill and enzymes to flush down the toilet every couple of months.

Gas smell when operating, possible condensor leaking . Is this sealed unit service-able or do i have to buy a entire unit?


Gas smell??? Freon doesn't smell like most common gasses like natural gas or propane. I believe the unit is servicable but i'm not sure you could get an A/C company out to repair an A/C of its size. If it still blows cold air I would say the problem isn't coming from your A/C unit, if there is a noticeable leak (you can smell it) in the condensor it would dump most of the freon fairly quickly. If it's not blowing cold air I would suggest replacing it, not sure if finding the leak, and getting out your oxy/acetaline torches would be worth the trouble.

HEAT PUMP/AIR CONDITIONER UNIT SMELLS ONLY WHEN AIR IS ON


Not sure what the smell...smells like.  My guess is dirt or dust near the heating elements.  These will cause a burning smell.  Sometimes insects even get into the act..building webs.
You will have to clean that area out...sometimes a large blower or vac can dislodge the dust.
