SMELL PROBLEM It has worked brilliantly so far but now it has started smelling. My husband cleaned all the parts and pipes etc. but it doesn't work, the smell is still there !!!!! I don't know what to do, sometimes it seems to smell even stronger if i do a high temperature wash. I tried to do a cicle at 90 degrees on its own but that didn't work either, what can i do ?

I have a stove 61ehdo stainless Steele cooker which tonight has just stopped working I've had it approximately 7yrs . Oven rings etc won't turn on . I was in the middle of making dinner when this happened...


If you smelled a plastic burning smell you've burned some wiring somewhere. You would need to pull out the whole thing and start by looking at the back. I once had a dead mouse that had shorted across the relatively high voltage terminals common on most stoves. You should unplug the stove before doing anything like removing panels. Be very careful. Once you've found the problem you might need to call an electrician to fix it, depending on how brave you feel and where the problem is.

We bought a house 3 months ago and have been noticing a sewer gas smell after being here for a month. Our house has been completely remodeled and plumbing redone. The smell is coming from the bathtub...


I would suspect inadequate venting causing the traps to empty, if the toilet is plumbed
near the tub and the vent stack was not used then it would cause the water to be sucked out of the trap during flush.
If the trap for the sink was inserted too far it can block off venting in the vertical
run of pipe. (I once saw an entire rental property with this issue).
If the tub needs snaked it can also cause this problem as part of the venting
may be tied to the tub. Hope this helps.

Product = model 15962 Problem = really bad smell


A good trick that i found was to fill tub with hot water and put a full cup of dishwasher detergent any kind but has to be powdered not liquid detergent. Do this two times in a row and then every month.

I have an Alpine ZL-3 and we can't smell the ozone any more. Our air doesn't smell fresh any more. My husband has been cleaning the ozone plate with warm water. Does this have anything to do...


OK- The plate needs brushing with a bristle brush to get the oxidized crystals and grime off it. If you don't, it will not create ozone. I never use water any more, it rusts the plate eventually. Rust also stops the process. I use rubbing alcohol. Cheap and safer than ammonia...MUCH safer. Blow dry. The only bulb is the radio wave ionization indicator bulb, attached to the round antenna-looking thing. You should wipe the ionizers off with alcohol every 6 months too. If they are gunked up they don't work nearly as well. Look up the Living Air Classic manual.

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

Dryer burning smell


Have you painted or stained in your house or apartment recently? The smell gets everywhere, dryer, stove, heating unit. I recently primed with Kilz and the clothes from my dryer smelled burned. When I called for service, it was the first question the service person asked and said they made a lot of useless trips only to find nothing wrong with the appliance. That was my case. I had to rewash clothes and let the dryer run with towels for a while
