2012 Toyota Camry: A Lovely Bouquet of Dirty Socks

June 11, 2012

The A/C in the Camry is starting to smell a little swampy. Dan says that usually comes from recirc being used too much. The system will start smelling like dirty socks because moisture builds up, etc.

I mentioned to him that I couldn't get recirc to turn off, so perhaps that was the culprit. Dan also said that if the temp was set to Max, the recirc would not turn off.

I didn't think I had it on Max but I went down to our garage to check. And, it turns out I did have it on Max. So, I changed the temp and switched off recirc. Hopefully, the stink will clear up. It may take a little time though.
