This sounds like your gas outlet test point is open if it was comissioned on original install the comissioner is to blame this also goes for service guy too as they should test appliance pressure on service and they do forget to seal it off, the funny thing is its gas its dangerous!so should never be left open. also i have had heaters get installed and had same problem before comissioning of heater as comissioning should be done by gas fitter as he would have found this and if has been comissioned he caused this, and look it may not be the reason why you are smelling gas but sounds more than likely to be it so call different gas fitter to come back and fix he won't tell you it's something its not and charge you for something you don't need to be charged for, you should then send his bill to original gas fitter to pay as he should have found this himself! its law for them to check the install and comission but they don't do it

RHEEM RGLG-05EAUER Occasionally, on startup, there is a fair gas smell from the vents for a few seconds.


I think I'd have it checked for a bad heat exchanger. At the very least, make sure you have working Co2 detectors on all levels of the house. You should not be smelling gas from your hear ducts. This is not normal. If anyone in the house is developing a head ache, that would indicate a heat exchanger problem.

I have a raw gas smell comming from fuel tank area


There is a vent on some fuel tanks. As gas gets heated, either from the afternoon heat or from driving, it expands. If your tank is full or close to it, the vapors can escape through the filler tube or some have another vent tube near the filler tube

Obd light on, idle rough, smell, no throttle


The obd light with tell specifically what it is, is it gas or rotten egg - the latter means catalytic converter, gas smell probably flooded or not firing on one or more cylinders, need more details. Also, if the light is flashing it's warning of catalytic damage - raw fuel hitting the cat, smell could be heat from cat trying to burn off raw fuel,it will glow red hot.

I turn van on and go the van boggs down then the service engine light turns on and it smells like raw gas


Does it only bogg down on acceleration or all the time? If its only on acceleration you want to check for any loose vaccuum lines leading to the intake. In addition you want to check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail and make sure that the engine is getting fuel. If so check the injectors. A clogged fuel injector or one that is leaking can cause the bogging issue and the smell of raw gas.

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.

I just had it installed and smell gas. if it says unvented , does it need vented or am i ok. im 73 yrs old and dont know much about gas heaters


An un-vented heater should never smell like raw gas, you may get an odor of combustion by-products but never raw gas. If you are getting the raw gas smell you either have a gas leak or incomplete combustion. Always follow manufacturers operation instructions that state "open window 1/4" to allow combustion air" If the unit is brand new, you will get an odor for 20 minutes or so of oils burning off of the heater but that smell should go away. Do you have a Carbon monoxide detector in the house? You should!

Rough idling, poor gas milege


Usually the rotten egg smell is a clogged CAT. Is the engine light on and if so did you retrieve any codes?

SMELL OF GAS


I have noticed that it smells of gas when it is running. Not really raw gas but kinda of exhausty gas it still as a bit a raw gas smell but it has an exhaust smell too. Also there is some slight smoking coming out of the exhaust pipes. Not too bad but if you look you can notice it. If I goose the throttle up it comes out more and the goes back to being light. Are these two problems related and what could be the cause? ounds like your bike is running rich. Probably wouldn't hurt to have your carburetors adjusted and synchronized.,,

GE XL44 Working fine but awful burnt propane smell


Remove the burners and clean them with EASY OFF oven cleaner. The passages are likely plugged and this causes incomplete burning of the gas. If you do smell raw gas shut the gas to the stove off RIGHT AWAY and call the local gas supplier.
