Re: [Amel] Bad odours coming from the A/C

On NIkimat SM2K #289, I also have a little smell in the aft cabin coming from the Air Conditionning.
I do not have it on the salon nor forward cabin.
I think Kent is right, that is comes from the condensation remaining in the tray below the AC unit.
I will flush it a few times a day to see if it goes away.

What kind of smell is it, Martin?  There should be
no leakage of sea water with the gas system or air flow. 
If there was a connection between the gas and sea water, the
gas would escape and there would be no cooling.  If sea
water is leaking out at the AC unit, it should be obvious. 
More likely the condensate drainage is not draining into the
bilge and remains in the tray below the AC unit.  That
could cause mold issues.


Let us know what you find.

Hi everybody,

Whenever we leave our boat for a couple of days, the A/C
creates nasty odours. I assume, that this is because the
cooling water hoses are not gas tight.

The A/C smell in the owners cabin is the worst.

Does anybody have experience in resolving this issue?

Your support is highly appreciated.
