Go to a craft store and buy some large pipe cleaners use a ammonia water solution soak the end of the pipe cleaner in this solution then put it in drain pipe work back and forth this will clean and kill any germs/ bacteria in that pipe be sure to wear rubber gloves

Washing machine sewer odor


The drain pipe that your drain hose goes into is more than likely the problem. The drain pipes should have a p trap which looks kind of like an S- shape the water stays in the trap preventing the smell from backing into your home . If there is none, install one.

Cause for burning smell from lower back of upright freezer


your freezer might be having blockage on the drain pipe thus not allowing water to flow on the drain tray if the drain tray is mounted on the compressor and its dry then the compressor or the condensor pipes are burning the drain tray. the solution to this problem is to service your freezer

Fridge smell


Hello,
It sounds as if you may have had a spillage at some stage in the fridge unit and this has gone onto the tray at the rear of the unit at the bottom on top of the motor.There may be some other explanation when you do pull out the fridge to access this tray.It may be easier to clean the tray in position as they can gat damaged if you try to remove them.If so get some soapy water and a sponge then clean out and dry,also some spray dissinfectant in the tray after cleaning will help.

Central air unit/ Lux500 thermostat


There is usually an overflow tray which has a shutoff valve when the tray is about to overflow water into your house. It is not located outside on your unit but inside where ever the condenser unit is. IF that tray is full of water, your unit will not turn on until it is emptied. Then you need to find out why the tray isn't draining...do you have a blocked drain pipe?

GE UNIT - AC/HEAT PUMP


Hello Cheryl, what they are talking about is a drain. As air conditioners run they collect moisture from the air on the evap(in cooling mode) or condenser ( in heat mode). This moisture will run off the part and flow into the tray. In the cooling mode, the moisture is slung onto the condenser to help cool it down, thus be more effective. I always recommend once a year remove the unit and clean all the coils and oil the fan motor. Household oil will work for this. During this cleaning find and clean out the drain. If it gets clogged that water can run back into the home. The PC pipe is sometimes attached to the unit to direct the water to a designated place. These units are common in hotels and they use the pipe to keep the water from dripping on the guest as they walk under the windows. Hope this helps.
