SOURCE: Karcher Power Washer Problem

I had the same problem with my Karcher. The recall was lifted Aug. 0f 2007. Tried numerous people at Karcher....head of Customer Service, vice president, etc. No one returns telephone calls not even cutomer service....poor, very poor customer service. Thinking about calling Germany.

SOURCE: Smells like it's burning and smoke coming out of chimney vent

Get the filter housing out of the machine and wash it out. Blow out the blowers housing. Change the control thermostat.It mounts right next to the fuse on the back:

SOURCE: karcher k 2.36 smoking and flashes of light inside the machine.

Hi:
This sounds like a short circuit or motor problem. They are relatively easy to take apart. If you see a burned wire or connector this can be repaired. If not, it is the motor and probably too expensive to repair considering the price of a new one.

My panasonic microwave shut off after 6 seconds as something smells burned. Now it is smoking up the kitchen so I turned it off


Just as a guess, this is not an inverter microwave, correct?

The offending part is more than likely the big transformer on the unit, plus the fuse.

If it is the inverter type MW oven the you should see a hot looking part on the circuit board that is connected to the magnetron.

In any event, it is time for a new microwave oven.

Smoke coming from under the seat on my dirtbike


Could be you got some crud on the engine that is burning off. or, there is something on the exhaust. The best way is to remove the seat and try to duplicate the results, and you will see where the smoke is coming from

Scooter exhaust smells like it is burning and smoking


The gasoline mixture is too rich, this means either not enough air because of dirty filter or the carburetor is letting too much fuel in.

Frigidaire window unit with heat and a/c smoke & burning smells


Hi, Anytime you turn a unit on like this and it smells and smokes, something is wrong. Did it smell as though it was electrical burning? Usually the blower motor is the first motor to go as they collect all of the return air and dust from the air and clog up the windings. They get hot and start to smoke, and you will know due to the smell of electrical wiring. I would turn it back on and see if it starts up and runs. If the motor hesitates in anyway, turn it off, or unplug it.If it is wired directly into a box, find out where the breaker is. If you are in fear of it catching on fire, call a air conditioning company out. I have seen them smoke like crazy but never had one catch on fire, never. I would turn it on, it will trip the breaker if the motor fails. Just watch it closely. If you can pull the front cover off and then turn it on, you may be able to see where the smoking is coming from, a motor ect.
Sincerely,

While starting my vaccum cleaner big noise and stream is coming . it is dead?


No Brand? I think you mean big noise and smoke? Smoke can be from a burning belt or dying motor. If it smells like burning rubber you likely have something jamming the brush roll. Otherwise suspect the bang came from a motor fan. Do not attempt to run. disassemble and inspect
