    Not unless a cat pee'd in it.

    Have you checked/washed the filter. When you do, have a look at the heat exchanger (radiator fin thingy) behind filter as to its cleanliness.

    Link was not my doing?

                is it ducted? evap? split system?

                had a friend call up on sunday saying their evap aircon was blowing stink into their son's room. i jumped up to check it out, it was actually a rather large dead rat decomposing near the vent. huge maggots. very stinky.

                  Is that aircon in the house or car?

                  The aircon in my other half's Rav 4 definately smells of cat pee 'cos a hairy stray tom cat gets into my garage and pisses up his car!

                  After a while the cat piss smell does go away, ( or I just get immune to it) and as I am a cat lover I am forgiving of the stray tom.

                  However for a house system, I am at a loss. All I can suggest is run it, as the water cascading over the pads should wash any cat piss (if it is a cat pissing on the pads) away.

                  If not, call your aircon fitters and complain. And don't be afraid to kick up a stink.

                  If thing's aren't right, you have every right to complain!

                  I'm a pom, we are always complaining if things are not right, and we usually win!...if you need advice feel free to pm me..I don't bite!


                  You only live once, but live right and once is enough......

                    If its a house evap system then get on the roof, and wash the cardboard type evaporation media stuff with a hose until the water runs clear, then drain the sump and clean out the brown pond scum stuff off everything, reassemble and run for a while. It will smell for a few minutes but will go away with everything running clean water. Car one let me know as mine stinks too.

                        Mice love eating through duct and then dying.

                        Be careful in your roofspace.

                          a. Get it onto "fresh" instead of "recirculate"; or
                          b. Have a shower.
