    depends on the smell and source of it. could be something in a vent like a rodent that has passed. could be the system needs a good cleaning. could be mold somewhere ... identify the source.

    Hi Yosefi,

    If this is a window A/C unit, unplug it and open it up immediately. Look for mold or bacterial infestation. If full of either, get rid of it before it makes the people in the house sick.

    It may also be a plugged drain which you need to unclog so moisture can drain out.

    If it is a central A/C unit, consult a HVAC company or the company that installed your unit.

    Samara also offered a good suggestion, check that out too.

    I've found if those things are in a real humid area, the smell is mold. I would get it serviced.
