Smell in room over boiler?

I'm having the same exact issue.

Strong metalic smell mostly 30-40 sec after the boiler shuts off and primarily in the room right above the boiler but not so much in the boiler room itself. Boiler is in the basement, plenty of space around it, the top of the basement stairs are right over the boiler and thats where the smell collects. It's a strong metallic smell. not an oily/fuel smell. The techs have been out 6+ times, one changes the jetting, another installed a draft inducer, another cleaned the chimney & boiler..still the same problem. did you resolve your issue and if so, how?

Ryan, tell us the make / model of the boiler and post some pictures.

I doubt we'll be able to help, but we would need more info.
