I have a lighter fluid like smell coming from my furnace. What should I do?

Home Alliance Tech Expert

That smell will most likely come from from the oil in the bearings of the blower motor. The motor should be cleaned and oiled if it does not have sealed bearings once a year. If they are sealed type this may be a sign they are getting warm and may need to be replaced. The best thing to do is get the furnace serviced and check the bearings for wear.
