What causes a stink like the smell of manure to come out of my air vents?


It may be a dead mouse or chipmonk that has died in your ductwork.
You should get your ductwork cleaned professionally.
If the smell comes out of all supply vents, then I would take the panels off of the furnace and return air and check in there.

What smell comes from an air conditioner leaking freon?


More then like no. Your AC does not hold very much freon so anything other then an extremly small leak would cause it to stop working. It is probably some small rodent or something like that got into your AC and passed.

I have a strange situation going on in my house. When I turn on my airco frequently I get a nasty smell from the airco vents. Sometimes we have it running all day and it's fine (no smell at all) then at...


You should look in the air handler( Where the indoor blower is located) or in the plenum (where the duct system originate at the air handler) for any dead and rotting rats. Residential central air systems are sealed (uses circulated air only) and do not use outdoor air.

It appears only one of the three burners are burning, ther is also the smell of unburt gas coming from the furnace vent. it's a Payne Plus 90 condensing furnace


Check to make sure your roof vent cap has not come off. This will cause this to happen. If its there, shut unit off, and pull out the burners that are not working. Just push forward and tilt the back end up to remove them. Turn them over and tap the rust and dirt from them. Reinstall them. Make sure they are in place right. This will solve your problem. This is why you smell raw gas.

Water pump size and over saturated pads


Louis, The cooling does not come from the volume of water running over the pads. It cools by cooling the air passing through the wet pads. So, Yours is an impeccably logical argument that leads to a false conclusion. Bigger is not better in this caThe fishy smell is from the matting (pads) when kept saturated, Molds and algae will form if there is too much water also.. Best you get the original size pump Good luck and stay cool - Ned

My air conditioner is brand new and is giving off a fishy smell.does anyone know why or how to get rid of it


odd that a new one would do that. try spraying the front of it (into the intake & output areas) with air freshener, or you could light an incense stick and put it in front of it and turn it on.

Smell gas through vents when furnace is running


I would strongly suggest a carbon monoxide detector first. Also your gas provider should do a free leak check. This is nothing to play with.
