Question about Mitsubishi MSZ-GE24NA Mr. Slim Wall Mounted Indoor Unit Air Handler

1 Answer

I have a terrible smell coming out of my Mitsubishi air-con.

We cleaned the filters and everything that was in the instruction sheet but the smell is still there. It is only in one unit, the other one that was purchased and installed at the same time is ok. Any tips? It is the split-type air conditioner and the smell is only when operated.

    Please describe the smell the best you can.

    Hi, thank you for your comment. The smell is like a dusty burnt smell, very strong. Today we tested it though, after few days of not using it, and it didnt smell as bad, strange. Any ideas? I spoke to a technician from our warranty and he said that it most likely needs servicing. He said that I could do it myself by switching electricity off and pouring 6 litres of water on it. The water should seep in and clean the unit and solve the problem. What do you think? Kasia

After making sure it will drain properly the best way to permanently remove smells is to use a "ozone machine" or a ionizer this attacks the odor causing molecules and breaks them down. 30-60 minutes from a powerful unit will do the trick , most carpet cleaning companies that also do water repairs have these machines and their rates vary. alpine air also makes a home unit and these are good to use in the home 24/7 as well

    Why remove odors after they come out of the AC unit with expensive air purifying equipment. Why is there a bad smell to begin with???

My Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier youst to have a

The Classic XL-15 should have 2 individual indicator lights. The 'red' light is the ionizer indicator, and the 'green' light is the ozone level indicator. Both lights should be illuminated, if the unit is operating properly. The red light should be pulsing, and the green light should be dimly lit, and brightened as the output knob is turned up - indicating a higher ozone production. If the green light is not lit, you likely won't smell the ozone. The first thing you should try, is cleaning the filter and glass ozone plate. Unplug the unit and remove the rear air filter. Clean the filter with clean water and allow to COMPLETELY air dry. Removed the glass plate by depressing the lever behind the glass plate, and gently pulling it out. Clean the glass with a half water, half ammonia (or distilled white vinegar, if ammonia not available) and an old toothbrush to clean between the mesh. Dry plate with a hair dryer and re-place plate into unit. Replace dried air filter, making sure the little tab on the bottom is secured into the interlock. Power the unit on and you should see the indicator lights and smell the fresh ozone!

I am trying the service the filter and change the plate and clean the air filter for the first time. There was not an owners manual in the box when I got it and I figured this was on line, but of course...

Depending on which model you have, this link can be helpful. It is the manual for oneof the newer models of the Fresh Air. http://www.docstoc.com/docs/1677957/EcoQuest-International-Fresh-Air-Owners-Manual.

If you have an older model, email me. I have a pdf. file of the earlier models.

Have a Living Air XL15 > everything works motor, fan, BUT .....

look through the front grill while its "on" you should see a glow from a neon lamp inside. If its not on chances are the circuit card is dead (should have about 350VDC plate voltage).
I have a used but good board if anyone needs one.

Kenmore air cleaner

I just bought the same model and also have the smell. My previous one did not so I returned the first unit and the second units smells the same. I called Sears Customer Support and they told me that it is probably due to the factory smoke test they do on each unit. He said let it run for a few days and it should dissapate. I went a step further and am trying a new filter and if this works he said call the store and they will get me a new filter.

Air Purifier smells like chlorine

Mine does too. Did a little research - I guess all air filters let out a little bit of ozone. Some describe the smell of ozone to be something like bleach yet others say it smells like geraniums or even "sparks" (like the sparks that come off of the bumper car ride at the fair...hmm...interesting). Not sure which to believe, but I know mine smells.
I found a manual talking about reducing this smell. Said the first couple of weeks are the worst of it, but if it still bothers you, you could install an "activiated carbon filter" down stream from the air filter, or go through complicated instructions (for whatever model they were talking about) to go into the of the machine and switch stuff around.
Both solutionssound complicated to me.
I'm just happy knowing the smell is normal and that it is actually working. Think I'll live with the smell.

XL15

The ozone plates need to be cleaned monthly to work effectively. You can get an owner's manual for free from the manufacturer's website, it's at:

http://www.ecoquestintl.com/support/US50300_Living_Air_Owners_Manual.pdf

The manual has a description of the type and frequency of cleaning of various parts of your air purifier. Hope this helps!
