My daughter & son-in-law are having a strange problem with their central air. They live in a double wide mobile home. The problem is this: When they put on their air conditioning, they get an awful odor in their home. I haven't smelled it, but my daughter says it is terrible. They do not have the odor when they use their heat. They had someone there to check it today, and he really didn't have any answer.They have forced air heating/cooling. He suggested they have their floor vents cleaned & sanitized. While this is in itself a good idea, it doesn't make sense that the odor is coming from the vents. If that were the case, it seems it would still smell when the heat was on. Make sense? When they first smelled it they thought maybe it was a dead animal or something. But that would still smell when the heat ran. Their outside unit appears fine. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this problem? Any help would really be appreciated. Thank you.

I am actually having a similar problem and would love to know what your daughter did. In our case, it is just happening in one room and only when the air is on. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Well, they actually got lucky. They got an estimate of $350.00 to have their vents cleaned and sanitized, but they weren't sure that was the problem. And that is a lot of money to waste. So my son-in-law decided to open all the windows and just let it run for awhile. And it worked. The air runs every day and the smell is gone. Still have no idea what it was. Good luck.
