Sound to me that the t-stat is no good on the unit. get yourself a multimeter and chech the resistance in the different locations on the switch. you should be able to get the specs at the heater companys website

Why when I start my car is there an odor coming from vents that smells like something is burning, and my Air Conditioner still blows, but it only blows out hot air. 2008 Chrysler Sebring. Help?


have an accredited ac shop as an ac cannot produce hot air only cold air so that means that the ac is not working (leaks low on gas etc). The hot air is from the heater in the car and the smell is probably wire overheating or the resistors are burning.

Smell of antifreeze and heater blowing cold air in my 97 eclipse


Check heater core location for leakage. If no heat is coming out when you have the temp set to hot, chances are you have a blocked heater core. If you smell antifreeze from heater fan, you may have a leak in the box that contains the heater core. Your windows may fog up too, if you keep the heater on for a bit, but this happens more often if the air coming out is warm, or hot. Hope this helps!

About every two months the the hot water gets a sour smell. To get the smell out I turn both elements all the way up for 3 hours then drain the water heater, its good for about two months. The water heater...


The smell is from bacteria. The high temperature kills the bacteria. Some regions require water heater temp to be set at 135 because of bacteria.

A test to determine if only the water heater is causing problem: Turn off water to water heater. Smell water coming out of cold tap. Turn on water to heater, smell water from hot tap. If only hot tap smells, then water heater is suspect.

Another way to handle the problem long-term, is to reconfigure cold water pipes so you can regularly pour in 2 bottles of hydrogen peroxide during your flushing procedure. Pour in the hydrogen peroxide and let it work for a while. And then flush tank as you have been doing.

You should read up on anode rods also. Many people replace anode rods when tank begins to get odor.

Blowing cold air instead of the heat


Heater coil has possibly burnt out. his coil is located rightr behing the front coil of the a/c You need to pull the unit from its sleeve and look inside behind the a/c coil and there it is. It looks like the inside of a toaster the elements should be incased in a metal box. What causes the burn out is 1 poor air flow over coils due to dirty filter or dirty coil, 2 dust build up, the minute particals the get through the unit 's filter and build up over time causing burnout, 3 possible high limit switch on the coil housing itself. This switch prevents the heater from overheating and causing a fire. Have this look at by a tech the cost incurred isn't really that much.

Good luck on your repair hope this helped

Overheating, guage not over 1/2 mark, overflow smells like exhast


Have you tried running car from cold, with rad cap off, & heater turned on, coolant topped up, an inch or 2 from top of rad? Let it run up to operating temperature, cooling fans kick in & out 2 or 3 times, and top up coolant as needed, then put rad cap back on, & fill return bottle up to mark. There may be a worse problem, but bleeding system as I have described, ensures all air out of heater core & cooling system, which has been cause many times before on all makes & models of vehicles. Especially when no heat situation. Let me know if it helps.
