Odor in system when blowing hot air

by M. Scott McNeill
(St Stephen, N.B., Canada)

I have a Trane 4 Ton model# TAM7AOC48H41SBA that works great except for the fact that every third or forth time it calls for heat there is an unbarible odor that exists bringing tears to your eyes. Eastcoast Air who installed this unit this past Summer is stumped by this and I am wondering if there is anyone who has experienced this and knows of a solution to this problem...Scott

I have the same problem at times with my Heat Pump not sure of Model,but Brand American Standard by trane I tried replacing all attic insulation cleaning debris inside unit did not work, my unit is only 2years old. I really think heat pumps are not worth the problems..maybe if you live in a consistently mild climate not good for very cold or very hot.
