Sounds like the transmission is jammed.  This will cause the motor to bog and burn.

My mowers blades are not turning but the hum of the motor is there and it has a burning smell with smoke coming out of the motor housing unit ...help


It sounds like bearings are seized and need to be replaced. Too much attempted use will burn out the field windings and a rewind or new motor will be needed - both costly.

Burning smell from motor


Hi,
Check your filter and also check that nothing got pulled into the motor...otherwise the motor is burning up and will need to be replaced... probably cheaper to replace the whole vacuum..

Stadt J90 Heater electrical buring smell when unit fires up smell goes away after 5 - 10min for a day or 2 then comes back. Check but no signs of fire or smoke or burnt area. Unit is old but works well...


Hello

Could be your fan blower motor overheating.Normally you wont see any smoke or burning from this motor.

There are sealed bearings in these motors that go bad and cuase a strain on the motor.Also the windings could be clogged with dirt.

Have a look at the motor after you run for a little while.IF the motor is hot to the touch have it replaced.

The washine machine finished it's cycle but there was smoke coming out of the drum and a burning rubber smell


The usual cause of smoke coming out of drum is that the heater element has come on or stayed on with no water in the drum
Try it on a spin cycle only, if smoke still comes out of drum, then could be a faulty pump, or main motor is burning.

Burning smell and smoke


When you turn it on....is the belt turning the brushes? Something may be caught causing the brushes to stick and the belt to just grind the brush assembly.

K45 started smoking while mixing cookie dough


There is the possibility that if the mixer is 30 years old and it has never been serviced that the gasket around the gear case is leaking oil and in that case it would not be hard to get liquids on the armature or the stator as the gear grease in the transmission is vegetable base grease and it separates into liquids and solid and when the head is tilted up the failed gasket allows the separated oil to leak down and to the rear onto the mixer right onto the motor parts. It maybe nothing more that cleaning out all the old grease and re-packing and adding a new gasket.

Smoke smell coming from my 80 series Washer


do you actually see smoke or is it you have a burning smell
if you have a smell the motor may be overloading on spin
sometimes this is due to too much soap powder in wash
and when machine spins the water cant get away due to soap suds under and around bowl
acts like a brake on motor
try no soap powder in next wash
a good way to tell is that you still have soap in washing if you lift the lid (with no soap powder added)
