    Default Strange odor coming from Radiator

    We live in a 1906 home with old radiant heaters. The home has as all black steel pipes and the radiators have never leaked (as far as we know). However, when the heating is "on" there is a odor that seems to come from my daughters room that disapates once the door is opened or the heat is lowered. Could the cause of this be related to the radiators?

    Radiators themselves don't smell, but often times the dirt and debris caught in them will. A good cleaning should remedy the problem.
