i don't usually think i stink, but for the past week, I constantly smell poo emanating from my bag.
I've changed appliances and bags and it still won't go away. Nobody else says they can smell it, but I know i'm NOT imagining it. I've put deodorizer in the bags and i've also tried mouth wash. When i'm in bed, i'll get a whiff of under the covers, and it stinks bad. I keep checking to see if it's leaking, but it's not.
i don't know what the deal is.
Do you think i could've gotten a bad box of bags? Like, maybe the filters are bad?
Because the odor will go away right after i've changed the bag.

Why not send one back with a note and tell the company what seems to be happening. All the companies I've dealt with seem really willing to help. They like happy customers.

Good luck.

I would think fliters.
Try this. Take a piece of toilet paper, fold it up then tape it over the filter with medical tape, use ALOT of tape. then see if you can still smell the smell. And also, if it does have a problem, there will be tinytraces of poo on there.
When my filters start to fail, or turn black if id ont want to change i do that, lol. Had never had a problem until a little while ago, and i kept smelling something,and my tape had come loose! so i decided jsut to change

I thought I could smell poo all the time too. I changed to a filter bag but I still have gas troubles it's kind of like the filter doesn't filter more than a few hours. Then I bought some M9 Hollister smeller reducer stuff and I don't smell anything unless I empty it or it is leaking.

I would also bet you that the culprit is the filter!
