sounds like something is overheating and can cause a fire
contact your supplier and get it replaced

Stop use and call the provider they should have another one within a few hours

I don't mean to be rude. Evidently he didn't just start using it today. Has it ever smelled like this before today? If it has not then there is probably something wrong with it. A burning smell is never good.

Turn the tank off now. He must have a portable tank he can hook up to for now. Call his supplier and talk to them They have someone on call 24/7 for problems. They will bring him a new tank right now unless he can wait until morning.


I just noticed you posted this question 3 days ago. Guess I am a bit late. WHY haven't you picked a best answer yet????


CJBig
If it has a burning smell then he needs to stop using it ASAP and call the home health company he uses to get out there now.
