Post Strange smells near a/c vents

We have flexible air conditioning ducts above a sheetrock ceiling. I have not used the system for around half a year. We have a strange smell emanating from the ceiling, which seem to be coming from the air conditioning vents, but I am not sure. Is the smell related to the air-conditioning system? How does one isolate the source? How does one deal with the problem? Thanks.

A/C smell

Can be a lot of things. Have you looked at the drain pan there under the A coil? Is there yuck or mold there. Is there a dead critter in the blower or cold air return. You have to just look around and sniff.Could it be a burnt motor smell. Is your filter clean? ED
