What is that smell coming from my furnace???
Now that the weather is turning colder, hubby and I decided it was ti1me to fire up the furnace in the '71 Trade Wind we bought a couple of months ago. It appears to be the original Suburban and it started right up and worked fine. Hubby put the front cover back on and just as we thought we were all set we started smelling something akin to burnt rubber. We have tried cleaning around it and have removed the insulation that was behind it looking for anything suspicious. We don't think there is anything plugging the venting since we can feel air passing through. The odd thing is that we only get that smell when the front cover is attached, uncovered there is nothing. We have tried this a few times to make sure we aren't hallucinating. Has anyone experienced something similar or maybe offer some advice? Thanks!
