Why the Samsung Air-Conditioner emits bad smell?

Last Update date : Oct 26. 2020

Basically, there are no components in the Samsung Split Air-Conditioner sending out chemical smells. However, Bad smell may be emitted due to dirty air filter. Air filter should be cleaned once a week in summer season.




Some reasons which may result in bad smell from Air-Conditioner are :

● Dust particles might be blocking the Air path, causing low cooling inside the room.

High ambient humidity.

● When the Air conditioner is turned on, other smell sources might be sucked into the air conditioner.

● When the drain hose is taken out to the washing room, there may be sources of bad smells such as a diaper bin, a shoe shelf or, a basket of dirty laundry etc.

● Bad Smell might be emitted due to dust and moisture sticking onto Air-conditioner coil and filter.
