Re: Fishy Smell While with A/C?!?!?!

Just check the drain under the dash. No signs of water building up in there.

The only scenario I can think of is something some way some how crawled in the duct and got chopped up by the fan.

It literally smells like something died in my A/C duct system.

Re: Fishy Smell While with A/C?!?!?!

Looking into the inlet again, I sprinkled a little bit of Febreeze Extra Strength in there, walked around and hopped inside. Smell pretty nice. That's when I got an idea.

So I took everything apart again. The brown stuff on the fan is what was giving off the bad smell.

I cleaned the fan and the fan's housing.







The smell is almost completely gone now. I'm sure there is more to clean up inside the duct but I'm not sure how to take it all apart yet for a good cleaning. It's much better than before and almost none existent.

I really think my blower fan acted as a blender to something today.

Re: Fishy Smell While with A/C?!?!?!

If the blower motor chopped whatever it was in pieces, then most probably the remaining parts are now laying against the evaporator, since all air will have to go through there.
