    So I did an overhaul on our C44AW dishwasher and after putting it back into service I noticed that the exhaust smells rich.

    I had adjusted the gas solenoid valve in the past 6 months after it was misfiring and had it adjusted to factory specifications.

    I will verify it is still good but I wanted to check if there is something else I should be looking for as well, outside of the gas solenoid valve.

    I did turn off the gas as I dont want there to be any issues with the unit running as stated above.

    You can't tell by “Smell” with gas combustion. Use a combustion analyzer to verify your concerns. What you smell may be foreign material or a coating on the inside of the combustion chamber.

      That could be the case.

      When the gas is turned on there is no smell. Only when the machine is producing exhaust.

    Is the exhaust hood working?

      It sure is. That was one of my first thoughts.

    Being the combustion chamber is submerged, It could also be water treatment chemicals coming out of the water from heating. Like Floride and chlorine.
