    Tuna type smell! help THANKS EVERYONE INVALUABLE HELP!

    Ive checked cubboards, units, etc nothing
    Fridge etc nothing yet every so often from the kitchen comes a terrible TUNA smell..

    I know this is laughable but we have checked everywhere, sinks, etc.. its not constant, its occasionally but very strong when happens. Weve even unplugged the washing machine to check for blockages!

    Its driving me totally insane... cos it really stinks! I feel sick cos its just happened again!

    OMG you may be right about electrical!!

    seriously though it can cause tuna smells? OMG

    We got one plug which is abit loose and sparks!
    Daughter just blooming used it to make a cuppa! when she was told not to use it, sooo maybe thats it?

    Electrical...probably.

    Check out plugs/sockets and light bulbs.

    I had a carrot at the back of the cupboard that was oozing a tuna aroma, when i found it and picked it up to bin it it burst!

    it could be a plug burning out OR light fittings/bulb melting (happened to us)! Check everything

    We had an old lamp (that we inherited) and when it was switched on the bulb would heat up the bulb holder which would then make a fishy smell. Try checkin that too.

    If all else fails you might need to stop blaming the house and buy a tube of canestan for yourself :p:w00t:

    Check any curtain poles..... unscrew the ends...... one of my friends moved into a house and eventually found the previous tennants put raw prawns in the end of the curtain poles in 3 rooms of their house before they left
