Gas boiler smell

BostonBoston Posts: 107Member ✭✭
We just purchased a house with an older gas hot water boiler.  It has a standing pilot and i noticed that there is a slight smell in the boliler room.  If i put my nose near the vent of the bioler i can smell that it's coming out of the boiler.  It's not a gas smell.  It's hard to put my finger on it.  I have a smoke/CO detector in boiler room and nothing is going off.  I had a chimeny guy come and check the draft and he said it was fine.  I also called a plumber and he said it seemed ok.  My old steam boiler had electronic ignition so maybe this is a standing pilot thing.  I also noticed that there is little draft when the gate (not sure what it's called) is closed.  When i start the boiler and things get going the smell goes away.

Thanks for your help.
