Something is hot inside. Turn off the air cleaner and run the fan on manual. If the smell goes away, have the unit cleaned and serviced. If it remains, your blower motor or belt is going bad.

Smell fuel near carburetor in front.


The carb float chamber is vented to atmosphere and under certain conditions there will almost always be a fuel smell near the carb, especially for those with a developed sense of smell. Petrol is a liquid with highly volatile elements and in hot weather or a hot engine those elements will readily evaporate and then the vapours will drift where they will.

Any abnormally strong or stronger than usual fuel smell should be investigated and while most leaks will be easy to find with a cold engine and cold weather it is worth noting a tiny fuel leak can create a strong smell in mild or hot weather or with a hot engine and be virtually impossible to find.
It will probably be necessary to remove the air cleaner to check for carb flooding and it is also worth noting in the case of an engine driven fuel pump there is a possibility of a leak into the engine crankcase.

Bathroom sink smells strongly like sewer when water runs fast.


Suppose you plugged the drain of the sink and filled the basin with water, then removed the plug. I must think that only after the basin empties you would get the sewer smell, and the smell would persist until you slowly ran some more water. If you try this, and this is the result, then the problem is that the sewer vent (that is supposed to prevent the water in the trap under the sink from being sucked down the drain) is not working right. If this is a new problem then you may be able to clear what is probably a blocked vent pipe. If this bathroom has always had this problem, then you have a poorly designed or executed vent pipe setup that you can only fix it with some surgery to your plumbing. However, to clean the vent you can try pouring a good bit of drain cleaner down the vent pipe on the roof, followed by water. But because there may be several vent pipes sharing the same vent stack out the roof, the drain cleaner may not get to your blockage and may simply go down a different path. Good luck.

Getting a cigarette smell coming out of the air vents. Just bought the car and didn't notice a smell before.


getting rid of cigarette smell is nigh on impossible,without taking down the whole dash/heater matrix/a/c system.and steam cleaning the whole thing.you could try an aerosol spray(from a dealer)that you spray into the outside air vent,but that only maskes it,unless it is very strong.(the nicotine sticks to everything)smoking should be banned in cars......same as cellphones.....

We had our furnace repair turn on our Aprilaire 760 last summer. It gives off a very strong smell similar to an air freshener. We'd like that to be less in intensity. Furnance company says it's just fine....


I hope this helps you, have the repair person check to see if a furnace filter air freshener was installed at your last furnace check up without your knowledge. Also checked all wall and or floor registers to make sure the source of smell is not coming from them, it may be circulating though the duct system.last thing is to replace media pad in humidifier along with furnace filters, if you have air cleaner wash filters with hot water and baking soda, wipe & let dry before re- installing them. Your repair person may have use a strong smelling cleaning solution in humidifier that is now circulating though out your home, good luck.

There is a strong oil smell in the dryer


If you have recently painted or varnished inside your home the fumes in the air can create a hydrocarbon type smell in your dryer. This should stop as soon as the house is aired out.

Strong odor coming from dryer


Usually when there is a strong heat (burn) smell from the heat element, it is telling you that there is poor air flow. This has nothing to do with the model. It is a blocked or restricted vent line, or an internal blower wheel malfunction or a lint blockage further in the machine that is restricting the air flow. WHEN AIR MOVES CORRECTLY, THE ELEMENT HEATS NORMALLY AND DOES NOT GIVE ANY OVERHEAT ODER.

When I first turn on my air-conditioner (it's attached to the furnace) a smell of raw gas comes through the vents. My air conditioner is a Lennox.


Obviously you have a leak in/at/near the furnace. Most gas companies will come out at no cost and do a leak search. Strongly recommend you do that.

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.
