Our Dell 1710 laser printer is producing a strange smell - it smells like diesel/kerosene fumes. Weird, huh? It seems to be working fine otherwise - no change in performance. Any ideas? kerry

i had the same issue, but i fixed it. For whatever reason the contacts that are inside the printer were not making contact with the PCB ( printed Circuti board ) on the underside of the drum... i fixed the issue by cleaning the pcb and re-aligning the contacts inside the printer.

Your manufacturer, Toyotomiusa, recommends that you tighten all the joints on the fuel line. Your owner's manual CLICK HERE contains detailed drawings showing the location of all parts, including the fuel injector. Your unit will need to be serviced by a qualified technician if you have tightened the connectors and still smell kerosene or find wet spots under your heater. It should not leak or smell of kerosene. If you're smelling kerosene, you should not operate the unit, because the leak may cause a fire.

There's a strong smell (fumes) coming from the printer. I felt high the first day and I had a funny feeling in my throat on one side. Some say it smells like a hot blow dryer or burning smell. I need to...


The odor is coming from what is called the 'fuser' which heats and bonds the toner to the paper stock. There may be some light residue from the manufacture of the fuser roller which is heated to a high temperature to enable the fusing to take place. It may linger for several days but is unlikely to be hazardous in nature otherwise Samsung wouldn't allow it to remain on the assembly. Laser printers often smell 'hot' due to this process but I have not heard of any hazard caused by fumes. One caveat though; the fuser roller is coated with Teflon or an equivalent coating. I nearly died from Teflon which was in a gaseous state many years ago but it was exposed to temperatures of greater than 450F which is dangerous since the effect is that of a nerve gas called phosgene. Since that is a temperature one can easily reach on a stove-top, we have NO coated cookware in our home.
If you notice that the plastic near the warmest place on your machine feels uncommonly hot, it might be best to shut it down since it may be possible for the thermostatic control to fail so the fuser is heated to an abnormally high temperature. I'm fairly sure there is a thermal fuse to prevent catastrophic failure but wouldn't count on it.

Replaced rotor on my 115 ready heater now it puts out way to many fumes,it burns my eys.any suggestions


The fuel/air mixture is not right.
  • Start by setting the pump pressure to factory specs.
  • Stop all air/vacuum leaks between the air pump & nozzle
  • If the problem persists, replace the nozzle. Desa recommended annual replacement. Simply stated- the nozzle wears out to a point that the fuel is a spray rather than a fog and the fuel can't burn completely.
  • You don't state the type being burned. Diesel smells more than kerosene.

Have it checked properly - sometimes the reg won't open fully, but the heater will still run, but with improper combustion resulting in a funny smell.

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.
