Have been in this house 6 yrs (new build). Ejector pump is working, no sewer back up, all sinks and sumps working. New odor from pump closet, smells of sewer. Had sewer pumped this fall. Just enclosed area in past 3 months, but no odor when basement wasnt finished. Do I need a plumber? Could this be a leak of some kind?

Sewer gases are highly dangerous and YES you should call a licensed plumber (ask to see the license so they are not sending some so called "tech" to try to beat licensing laws

The probability is you have a venting condition that is allowing the sewer fumes to enter the structure rather then being vented through the roof terminal
