Question about Estate TEDX640JQ Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Burning smell and no manual

I had a burning smell coming from the dryer. It has gone out, but the smell was definitely that of burning, and of a paper burning variety. The belts have been squeaking for quite a while. We've unplugged it and moved it out of its place. There does not seem to be any danger of fire now.

I don't know what kind of belts or motor to put in and I can't find a manual (at least not yet.)

Thanks!
Kevin

Dont have a service manual for it but i can tell you thta in order to acess the inner workings heres what to do. First remove the filter assy and then the 2 phillips screws under the filter. the top should the pop up and you need to remove 2 5/16 screws holding the front panel on the front panel will then lift off allowing you acess to the belt and motor asy, belt part number 341241, and a 691366 for the idler/tension pulley assy. the burning lint smell is probalby form an excess of lint within the cavity of uint, if you find excessive lint build up checl your venting!!!!!

Zanussi To 7103 S. Smell of burn coming from dryer,I clean filters on a regular basis wondering is there another compartment that I'm overlooking???


DRYER SMELLS LIKE BURNING:

Answer:First, Stop using your dryer until this problem is resolved. This is a fire hazard and could cause a fire.
Your issue is more than likely alint build up problem. The lint that comes off of your clothes as you dry them becomes trapped in the dryer itself and in the venting duct that connects from the back of the dryer to the wall.
The first thing to do is todisconnect powerby unplugging the dryer cord from the wall. Slide the dryer away from the wall slowly.Remove the hose ductthat attaches to the back of the dryer. Look inside the hose duct and if you see heavy lint build up, that is most likely your problem. If you have a shop vac vacuum or similar, use the long wand attachment tovacuum out the lintthat is in the duct. The best way to do this is to completely remove the vent duct from the wall and dryer.Vacuum the inside of the ductto clean it out. Alsovacuum in the vent hole in the wallwhere the duct attaches to the wall and remove any lint that may be blocking air flow. Put everything back together and test your dryer to see if the burning smell has been resolved.


NOTE: There may be heavy build up of lint deep in the wall. You can purchase aDryer Vent Cleaning Kitthat may make your job of cleaning the vent much easier. However, it may be best to call a Dryer Vent Cleaning Company as they have the equipment that is needed to remove all lint in the wall that could cause a fire. We know everyone wants to save money and "do it yourself" but when it comes to safety, money should not be an issue.
If the burning smell is still present, you cantake the dryer apartandtry vacuuming out any lintthat may be built up on the inside of the dryer. Do a search for your dryer model name and number onGoogleto see how your particular dryer model is disassembled. If you are not comfortable taking your dryer apart then it is advised to call an appliance repair company as your issue can cause a fire.
There are other reasons for your dryer to have a burning smell. There could be an electrical issue inside your dryer. This may mean that a certain part or electrical board is going bad or is bad. Another common reason for this issue is something is near the heating element inside the dryer and causing the burning smell. If you have an older clothes dryer, it may be possible that the components are past its life span and it is time to purchase a new dryer. If you want your dryer to be looked at by a professional, it may be time to call an appliance repair company to come out and check your dryer.
There are plenty of videos that can help you to determine what may be wrong with your dryer. There are a few videos below that may assist you with troubleshooting and disassembling your dryer.

Lent is damp dryer takes too long to dry and burning smell


Your burning smell might just be lint which has been loosened by you, getting onto the dryer's heating element. If this is the case, the smell should not last long, nor will it damage the dryer.
