Does it smell like literally , dirty socks?if so it is dirty sock syndrome, a plague of heat pumps for years. if it smells like an electrical melting or burning of wires then time to call a pro.it could be a weak capacitor or a weak fan motor. if it is dirty sock syndrome then its the microbes that thrive when temps are middle temps and reproduce when temps are hot and cold in intermittent days. hot one day and cold the next equals call for cool then call for heat and hot steam from heated coils cause s bacteria to grow and microbes to spread across coil. when you switch back it causes the smell.if the coil is clean you can spend a chunk of money on sanitizers but best bet is to run it cool for hot weather and hot for cool weather. the transitional periods are what create the smell. avoid semi cool and semi hot periods. this condition is common to acs from all brands . lots of stuff on the internet about dirty sock syndrome

You have DSS. When was the unit installed? Have you contacted the installing contractor? Have you told him what it is? Did you get a parts and labor warranty with the unit? Best solution is a new coil, get it coated and ask the contactor and manufacturer to foot the bill.

To make sure that there is not a problem with your blower test it on cool. if it runs good. then start the heater on auto and it should be okay. but still supervise the operation for about 5 mins. if you still smell something burning . then call an AC Technician for help.

I just replaced the thermal fuse as described by several of your people for a fan motor on a Kenmore dihumidifier 580.54701400. The unit ran fine for about an hour and then stopped with a burning smell...


Your call on the $39 replacement replacing the whole thing.
did the TCO you put int have the same specs (temperature) as the one you replaced? I've replaced a lot of these and they'll keep running.
The burning smell points to a failing coil which creates the heat which opens the TCO. you already know how to get the motor coil out so I think the $39 options is better.

Goodman GMPH075-4 Heater with new louder noise & strange smell


The burning smell could be anything inside the furnace blower compartment. Most all the controls are located there. Me not being there is it hard to say what it it and what to replace. I would start by removing blower compartment cover and inspecting the wires and controls. Look for any bad connections. If it was transformer it would have already burnt up. Goodman has a fuse on there controlls in case of shorts, Limit controls in case of unit over heating. If you cannot visably see anything wrong it would be a good idea to call a service tech to check heat exchanger. I would have it checked anyway. James

The fan inside is having a hard time rotating...starting to smell. what gives?


If the fan motor is quite hot to the touch when it is running and the smell is like something burning and the fan blade isn't rubbing on the housing then the fan motor bearing are most likely worn out. If that is the case then the fan motor is bad and needs to be replaced.

I would have a tech come out and check the voltage going into the fan relay and fan itself. The smell being as how it is coming through the vents in the house tells me that the problem has got to be at the blower or in the area at the blower fan which leads me to the possibilty that the smell could be the windings on the motor. This could be because the voltage may be to high. Good luck on repairs

Kenmore progressive 300 smells like it is burning


These vacs use Ametek motors which are practically designed to fail. Frequent complaints are a burning smell and louder than usual noise in the canister. The problem is the poor quality
bearings Ametek uses in the motors in the units. They have low-end ball bearings with a nylon "crown" that breaks up and gums up the bearing. Further the fan end of the motor is a bear to get to because of poor (intentionally?) design. With great difficulty I WAS able to remove the fan and housing and inspect the bearing. Since finding a replacement is too much trouble or impossible, I cleaned up the ball bearings and switched the bearings on the two ends moving the remaining good one from the brush end to the fan end where I assume the load is. I packed the damaged one with grease.

Now the motor runs smoothly. I doubt however this jury rig will last very long. It is very irritating to toss a $120 motor because of a failed bearing. Kenmore and Ametek should be embarassed but I'm sure they are NOT!
