I was hoping someone might have a moment to answer a gas hot water heater
question. I would really appreciate it!
About a month ago we replaced our hot water heater with a new
GE model from **********. Ever since then there has been an
exhaust smell coming from the unit. Its not a natural gas smell or
a sulpher smell. The flame appears to be burning "clean".
At first the plumber said that it was from the oil
lining the new tank and it will go away in a few days - it hasn't. Its
not a very strong smell but definately there when you first walk into
the house. We have a Carbon monoxide detactor and it hasn't gone off.
Any ideas what this might be? We have a baby in the house and are
worried about what we might be breathing in.
