Where has chid gone?

Do you smell this smell anywhere else out outside of the usual spots?

If it's paranormal then it doesn't have to mean it's bad......it could be a spirit or ghost that died in a fire or a fire burned on your land at some point which is coming through in residual energy.

I agree with Not_Mikee.  thumbsup.gif

There can be other medical conditions that cause this, including sinus infection (which may exibit no other outward symptoms), allergies, migraines (which don't have to be painful), and vasculitis.  So I wouldn't worry too much about a tumor, it could be something simpler setting it off, though not all of these are fun, sinus infections seem to be a very common cause of the stinky smoke smell.

Barring that, you may just have a very good sense of smell.  Watch your appliances and electric bill closely, and call an electrician if you are suspicious.  We had a serious electrical fire when I was in high school so I'm wary of these things.

There are many knowledgeable people here that can help you out with the alternatives, if it comes to that.

I just experienced this myself. Googled ghosts & burning smell...and here I am. It smelt like something burning in the corner of the kitchen. I even pulled the wall scent out & smelt it. Nothing outside either. You're not the only one.

Hi, a personal question (which you certainly don't have to answer on this forum)... are you going through menopause at the moment or perhaps pregnant?  Reason I ask is that when I was pregnant and my hormones were changing I smelt different smells at various times.  Also when I was breastfeeding.

Any chance you can get another female to check it out when you smell it?  Maybe the men in your life aren't quite as sensitive to it?

Mvp is right is saying look for logical reasons first.  If you have a fire place make sure the damper is closed also.  Has there ever ben a fire in the house?

i am diabetic so i go in to the Dr on a regular basis for checkups Once i just happened to mention that i was always smelling somethig burning. usuallly smelled like burnt dust but sometimes woodsmoke he started running tests on me that day and for more than two weeks after that, what he told me was that not always but sometimes smelling smoke when there isn't any is a side symptom of or precurser to having a mini stroke. Somehow it changes how the brian receives the information sent to it without actually killing off the brain cells receiving the information or some such.
i do not know if this is true but considering the cost to my insurance at the time i would suspect they believed it. they didn't even hesitate to pay for it. luckily or unluckily as the case may be they found nothing wrong with me that they didn't already know about
if your the only one smelling it go ask a Dr about it if not then disregard this

 chid, on 01 April 2007 - 11:59 AM, said:

style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif I am having and have been having for some months now  burning smell in our kitchen/dining area. It is not present all the time and seems to be worse at night time when we are sitting watching TV. My husband sits next to me - he cannot smell it. At times I could be elsewhere in the house - Hall, Bedroom, at the Computer. I have called my 'hubby' to where I am and he still cannot smell this 'burning'. It might last a second or it might linger for some time.

The smell is a 'burning' type smell (like cloth or rubbish). When these incidents occur both my husband and myself have gone outside our house and checked for this smell in the air flowing around and through our home, but there is never any smoke or smell to match what is permiating in the house.

This is distressing me (it is happening again at this moment). I can no longer sit in the loungeroom to watch TV with my husband as I become aggravated when this happens.

I am also afraid, as I have heard before that this could be a ghost!

Could I have some feedback please?
Are you certain that it was a burning like scent ? Did it maybe smell like sulfer? Sort of like if you stike a wooden match , that sulfer smell? Not really a burnt smell but something you can relate with fire?

Chid, I beleive you as I too have this problem. I'll try to explain what has happened and what I have done to try to eleminate the smell.
Having owned our house for 6 years now, we would on occasion sense what seemed like a wood fire smoke smell.
Last year it got worse. So I set out to locate where I thought it was coming from. My first thought was the furnace, but it was gas but has replaced the old oil furnace in 1999.
I'm thinking maybe the ducts have residue left from a damaged oil furnace so I have the ducts cleaned. No help. I then have the three chimney flues cleaned and sealed as they were not needed. Again, no help.
I remove the outer insulation from the ducts and replace it with new insulation. No help.
I then spray the insides of the ducts with odor elimainator chemicals. Not just one but a lot of different types.
I even installed UV lamps in the plentinum and then an Ozone generator that I use occasionaly when we are out of the house.
The smoke smell appears at different locations now as it did to begin with. The smell lasts from a minute to 10 minutes and is often strong.
It appears the we have a presence that is trying our patience.
Short of spending thousands of dollars to replace the ducts, I'm at a loss.
Problem is, the smell appears at any time, regardless of whether the heat or air is running.
During the fall season, we opened the house and ran the furnace fan with the windows and doors open to vent the system and house. I let the Ozone generator run full time while doing this.
The smell still appears and I do not know where to go with this.

HI SmokeSmell,

Welcome to UM. Unfortunately, this is an old topic and the OP has not been on the board since the day he posted  in April 2007 therefore unlikely to reply.
