Is this smoke because of a smoker or some other issue? (electrical?)
Smoker - go to a rent-all center and see if they have an deodorizer - it is a machine hotels/motels use to remove the smoke smell.....you may have to turn on the a/c and let the unit run for about 2 - 4 hours......it works great removing smoke smells from our motel rooms......
Remove Cigarette Smell | Remove Cigarette Odor | Ozone Generator | OdorFree

Good luck!

There are many types of deordorizer....from 30.00 (small home type) - 400.00 (commercial type) - when I've used the motel's (I work at motel) - it took the smell out after 24 hours of use.....a client had rented one of my cabins and smoked in it for a week.....UHG did it smell bad before I used it....


Try using it again - see the link where they suggest leaving a window open....

Im changing the return grills and filters to better ones, and im taking the ac off the roof anyway to retape and clean it with evap foam, so ill wipe out as much of the duct work as i can anyway first.
