Onkyo 325 model- burning smell

Hi,

Have had this unit for a week now, absoulutely fantastic sound. It does however have a burning smell coming from it still. I assumed it would be there for the first couple of plays to burn off any dust, but it is still happening. Have you come across this before?

Many thanks.

Jamie Churches.

    Could the smell be described as a "hot plastic" kind of smell, like of a new product that is running hot? Was this a brand new unit purchased or previously owned?

I got a new Onkyo Cs-525 with Onkyo speakers a month back. My vendor said that it will take 300 hours of playback before my speakers completely burn and start giving the the best possible output. Now I...


Burn-in? On speakers? Never heard of it, especially for something not pretending to be sky-high esoteric and expensive, following the believing-is-seeing (or hearing) rule.

If I had to guess, I'd say you're hearing speaker buzz from stress or resonance from something in or near the speakers. Does it manifest itself at all levels, both speakers, all sources (analog and digital)?

Wild guess... are track lights present and ON when you hear the problem?

Onkyo CR-325


According to the manual, the sleep timer can be set to shut the unit off after a specific time. The other timers can only be used to trigger the amp to play or recored at specific times, and only if the recieiver is left in standby, otherwise the timers are ignored. There should be no reason the sleep timer does not work if you are following the procedure outlined in the manual (http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/ONKYO/CR-325-_E)
Sounds like the transformer or something went in the other amp. Not related to the timer issue. Both amps having the smae timer issue suggests that it is a programming issue (follow the procedure in the manual step by step), if you still cant get it to work, get it covered under warranty while you can.\
Hope this Helps

Dryer stopped working after working w/door open or closed


Sounds as if the door switch/latch had stuck.the smell was probably a small short. try unplugging unit. But I would imagine you need door latch/switch replaced

HEAT PUMP/AIR CONDITIONER UNIT SMELLS ONLY WHEN AIR IS ON


Not sure what the smell...smells like.  My guess is dirt or dust near the heating elements.  These will cause a burning smell.  Sometimes insects even get into the act..building webs.
You will have to clean that area out...sometimes a large blower or vac can dislodge the dust.

Not receiving power


unless you have repaired circuit board assemblies in the past including replacement of board traces, there is little possibility of home repair here because ".... think i did smell something burning before". Sometimes the manufacturer will include an on-board fuse. You can open the case and look for this, but it may be too late. Fuses may never emit a burning smell even after they "burn", unless it is a slow-type and not encapsulated and you have a keen sense of smell. Sometimes the power section may include large power resistors; large because of the wattage they must dissipate. Look for one of these burnt and replace, but he actual burned part may be hard to find unless you have very good bench-testing tools and instruments. Bottom line is ...highly unlikely, "can i fix it on my own".
